A night of powerful phenomenon during the last days of Ramadan

from Abu Nurah – My Jihad Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

“The Night of Power” is referring to “laylat al Qadr” (in Arabic). Aka. the Night of Destiny, Night of Power, Night of Value, the Night of Decree or Night of Measures.

This night signifies the anniversary of two very important dates in Islam that occurred in the month of Ramadan. It is the anniversary of the night Muslims believe the first verses of the Quran were revealed to the Islamic prophet Muhammad.

The Quran describes this night as being “better than 1,000 months” and spiritual worship (eg. praying, reading Quran, etc) on this night which lands within the last 10 days of Ramadan is highly recommended.

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, for every matter.
Peace! It is until the emergence of dawn.
— Quran (97:1-5)
