Soorah Al-Qadr (The Night Of Decree)

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
1.  Verily! We have sent it (this Qur'aan) down in the night of Al-Qadr (Decree) [1]
2.  And what will make you know what the night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is?
3.  The night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is better than a thousand months (i.e. worshipping Allaah in that night is better than worshipping Him a thousand months, i.e. 83 years and 4 months).
4.  Therein descend the angels and the Rooh [Jibrael (Gabriel)] by Allaah's Permission with all Decrees,
5.  (All that night), there is peace (and goodness from Allaah to His believing slaves) until the appearance of dawn. [2]

[1] (97):1 "Therein (that night) is decreed every matter of ordainments." [Soorah Ad-Dukhaan, (44):4] **

** i.e., the matters of deaths, births, provisions, calamities, etc. for the whole (coming) year as decreed by Allaah.
[2] (97):5 Narrated 'Aa'ishah (radi-Allaahu 'anhaa):
Allaah's Messenger (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) said, "Search for the Night of Qadr in the odd nights of the last ten nights of Ramadan." [Saheeh Bukhaaree, Vol. 3, Hadeeth No. 234]
