In the sacred tapestry of Islamic spirituality, few nights hold as much significance as Laylatul Qadr, the Night of Power. Among the various chapters in the Quran associated with this special night, Surah Al-Qadr stands out, offering profound insights and mysteries that believers seek to unravel.

The chapter begins by emphasizing the exceptional nature of this night, stating that it is better than a thousand months.

The descent of angels signifies the outpouring of mercy, blessings, and guidance upon humanity.
