#17. Surat Al-Qadr – The Night of Destiny

Watch Dr Musharraf Hussain sharing his thoughts and analysis of Surat Al-Qadr. This early Makkan surat praises the splendour of the night on which the Majestic Quran was revealed, a night in the blessed month of Ramadan. On this night of power, glory and splendour, the Majestic Quran was transferred from the Protected Tablet in the upper Heaven to the lower Heaven, from which it was gradually and in piecemeal fashion revealed to the Messenger ﷺ over a period of twenty-three years. This explains why this night is very special. Three things come down during the night:

  1. Angels
  2. Human destiny
  3. Peace



In the name of Allah, the Kind, the Caring.

1 We sent down the Quran on the Night of Destiny, 2 and what can explain the Night of Destiny to you? 3 The Night of Destiny is better than one thousand months; 4 the angels and the Spirit, Jibreel, come down by the order of their Lord, bringing with them each person’s destiny. 5 Peace descends everywhere until the break of the dawn.
