Quran Quote  :  Allah is All-Powerful, All-Wise - 29:26

اِنَّاۤ اَنۡزَلۡنٰهُ فِىۡ لَيۡلَةِ الۡقَدۡرِۚ ۖ‏ ﴿۱﴾

1. Undoubtedly, We revealed (1) it (Quran) in the Night of Power.

1. Reason for its Revelation:

Once the Holy Prophet told his Noble Companions that Shamsoon, an Israelite observed for a thousand months, i.e. eighty-three years and four months continuous fast and stood in worship during these nights. Hearing this, one Companion asked: "There can be none among us like him. On the Day of Judgement he would be superior to us?" At that point in time, this Surah was revealed in which it is declared that We have revealed the Quran from the DIVINE TABLET (LOHE MAHFOOZ) to the BAITUL IZZAT of the first heaven on the Night of Power. Then any believer who worships Allah Almighty during this night shall be granted the reward of worship in excess of a thousand months.

From this emerge a few issues:

1. The works of the servants of Allah Almighty are His works. Observe, the revelation of the Holy Quran is the work of the angels but Allah Almighty says: "We have revealed it."

2. The date on which any great work had taken place will remain virtuous until the Day of Judgement. Observe, the Night of Power was the night on which the Holy Quran was once revealed as a result of which it will be observed as a great night until the Day of Judgement. Thus, the night of the blessed birth of the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم the Night of Me'raaj, etc. are virtuous for all times.

3. Night is superior to day. Me'raaj took place during the night. The revelation of the Quran, creation of the angels, laying gardens in Paradise, collection of the ingredients for the creation of Hazrat Adam (On whom be peace) took place during the Night of Power (Tafseer Azizi). The time for the acceptance of dua is during every latter part of the night, but during the day it is only on a Friday.
