Surat Al-Qadr is entirely dedicated to Laylat al-Qadr, the most noble of nights during the month of Ramadan when the Quran was first revealed.
In this video, Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan teaches us the nuances of the phrase “Laylat al-Qadr” in Arabic, which combines the meanings of night of “decree”, “honor” and “power”.
This is the night when Allah will decree that the Angels execute all His decisions for the rest of the year; when Allah revealed the most honorable words through His most honored angel to His most honored messenger.
Finally, it is a night endowed with unusual power; a night when all our sincere duaa will be accepted. It is the ultimate night of peace and prayer; one we must take advantage of as the blessed month of Ramadan comes to a close. But above all else, Laylat al-Qadr is a celebration of the Quran.
