Translation: Indeed, We sent the Qur’an down during the Night of Decree. And what can make you know what is the Night of Decree? The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord for every matter. Peace it is until the emergence of dawn.
“Shab i Qadr”, the Night of Power, marks the night in which the Qur’an was first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad by Allah.
Muslims regard this as the most important event in history and the Qur’an says that this night is better than a thousand months (97:3), and that on this night, every year, the angels descend to earth.
This is a time that Muslims spend in reciting the Quran and praying and asking for forgiveness from God.
