Laylatul Qadr: the Night of Power

Laylatul Qadr: the Night of Power

The Qur’an was revealed over a period of 23 years with the Night of Power considered the night in which the first revelations of Islam and the prophethood of Prophet Muhammed ﷺ began. This night is in celebration of the arrival of the Qur’an.

In Arabic, Laylatul Qadr (the Night of Power) is described in the Qur’an as, “better than a thousand months” (Sura 97:3). Al-Qadr means power and implies having power over something, particularly to Allah. The character of Allah is said to be excellence in power, capable, all powerful, almighty and also implies “high esteem” and thus the Night of Power is to be highly esteemed.

Here, Shaykh Hamza Yusuf discusses the blessings of this night, when it occurs & what to do during the last 10 nights of Ramadan.
