Lailat ul-Qadr, the Night of Power


Lailat ul-Qadr (”Night of Power”) marks the anniversary of the night on which the Prophet Muhammad first began receiving revelations from God, through the angel Gabriel. An entire chapter in the Quran deals with this night: “We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power: and what will explain to thee what the Night of Power is? The Night of Power is better than a thousand months. Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by God’s permission, on every errand. Peace!…until coming of the dawn.” (Chapter 97) Muslims believe Lailat ul-Qadr is one of the last odd-numbered nights of Ramadan.

Surah Al -Qadr , Power (Chapter 97)

In the name of Allah, All- Merciful, Most Merciful

1. Truly we sent it down on the Night of Power.

2. And what will convey to you What the Night of Power is?

3.The Night of Power is better than Thousand Months.

4. In it the Angel and the Ruh descend

by their Lord’s authority

with every ordinance.

5. It is peace.. until coming of the dawn.

( English translation by  Abdalhaq and Aisha Bewley)

May Allah Bless you all with peace during this Holy Ramadan, and entire of your life.
