Laylat al-Qadr


The Night of Power, also known as Laylat al-Qadr, falls on the odd-numbered nights of the last ten days of Ramadan, which is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. This year, it falls on April 17. It is considered the holiest night of the year, according to Islam. Muslims believe that Angel Jibril (Gabriel) delivered the first verses of the Holy Qur’an to Prophet Muhammad on this night. It is believed to be a time when sins are forgiven and supplications are accepted, and the annual decree of people is revealed to the angels by God.
