“Al-Qadr”
بِّسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ 

إِنَّا أَنزَلْنَاهُ فِي لَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ١

  وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ ٢

 لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ خَيْرٌ مِّنْ أَلْفِ شَهْرٍ ٣

 تَنَزَّلُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ وَالرُّوحُ فِيهَا بِإِذْنِ رَبِّهِم مِّن كُلِّ أَمْرٍ ٤

 سَلَامٌ هِيَ حَتَّىٰ مَطْلَعِ الْفَجْرِ ٥

 

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

2) And what will explain to thee what the night of power is?

3) The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.

4) Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by Allah’s permission, on every errand:

5) Peace!… This until the rise of morn!
During every day and night of the Holy month of Ramadhan, an individual must try his/her utmost to further enlighten his/her heart through remembering God in preparation for entering Laylat-ul-Qadr.
The Holy Quran states:

“Laylat-ul-Qadr is better than a thousand months. The angels and the Spirit descend in it by the permission of their Lord.” Surah Qadr, Verses 3-4
During the nights of Laylat-ul-Qadr the angels:

-Connect the earth to the Heaven

-Enlighten the hearts of the Believers

-Shed the light of God Almighty’s favor and grace on human life
Laylat-ul-Qadr is the night for:

Spiritual health, curing moral, spiritual, physical, and social maladies, which have unfortunately plagued many nations throughout the world, especially Muslim nations. It is possible to get rid of all these maladies in Laylat-ul-Qadr, provided that we prepare ourselves for it.
