In the Name of Allh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


[097:001] Verily, We have sent it (this Qur'n) down in the Night of Al-Qadr (Decree).


[097:002] And what will make you know what the Night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is?


[097:003] The Night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is better than a thousand months (i.e. worshipping Allh in that night is better than worshipping Him a thousand months, i.e. 83 years and 4 months).


[097:004] Therein descend the angels and the Rh [Jibrl (Gabriel)] by Allh's Permission with all Decrees,


[097:005] (All that night), there is peace (and goodness from Allh to His believing slaves) until the appearance of dawn.




(V.97:1) "Therein (that night) is decreed every matter of ordainments." (V. 44:4)**


** i.e., the matters of deaths, births, provisions, calamities, etc. for the whole (coming) year as decreed by Allh.


(V.97:5) Narrated 'Aishah [radhi-yAllhu 'anhaa]: Allh's Messenger [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam] said, "Search for the Night of Al-Qadr in the odd nights of the last ten nights of Ramadan."

[Sahih Al-Bukhari, 3/2017 (O.P.234)].
