Better than A Thousand Months

Guidance-I

“We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power: and what will explain to thee what the Night of Power is? The Night of Power is better than a thousand months. Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by Allah’s permission, on every errand: Peace! … This until the rise of Morn!”

(Al-Qur’ān – 97:1-5)

These verses bring into light the significance of Lailatul Qadr or the Night of Power. The verse 2:185 manifests itself to the fact that the Qur’ān was sent down in the month of Ramadhan. Again, the verse 44:3 says, “We sent it down during a Blessed Night (Lailatul Mubarakah).” These two verses along with Surah Qadr make it explicit that the Qur’ān was revealed in a Blessed Night of Ramadhan. Islamic scholars believe that this even might have occurred in any one of the two ways: either the whole Book was revealed from the Tablet Preserved (Throne) unto the Archangel Jibrael or the revelation upon the Last Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be to him) commenced in this Night.

That this Night is better than a thousand months means, as the Arabs would say, a very long period of the ‘timeless time’. It is because in this one Night alone a work of such great magnificence was done for the well-being and welfare of the entire humankind and the guidance was revealed for all time to come.

The Night brings immeasurable blessings to mankind. Angels and the Spirit descend, with the Lord’s permission, pouring Peace upon the earth till the next morning.
