Quran, Surah 97

 

Translated by Abdullah Yusuf Ali Translated by Hilali Khan
Surah 97 - Power


With the Name of Allah, the Merciful Benefactor, The Merciful Redeemer

1. We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power:

2. And what will explain to thee what the night of power is?

3. The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.

4. Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by Allah’s permission, on every errand:

5. Peace!…This until the rise of morn!

 
97. Surah Al-Qadr (The Night of Decree)

 

1. Verily! We have sent it (this Qur'an) down in the night of Al-Qadr (Decree)

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 Allah 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 Ruh [Jibrael (Gabriel)] by Allah's Permission with all Decrees,

5. Peace! (All that night, there is Peace and Goodness from Allah to His believing slaves) until the appearance of dawn.
