The most important virtue and characteristic of the last ten days of Ramadan is that there is a night in it, which is better than a thousand months, and on that night the world received an invaluable gift like the Holy Quran. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala He revealed the whole Surah, which we know as Surah Al-Qadr.
Almighty Allah says!
We have sent it down on the Night of Power. (1) And what will make you know what the Night of Power is? (2) Laylat al-Qadr is better than a thousand months. (3) Angels and spirits descend in it with the permission of their Lord with every command. (4) That night is complete peace till dawn.
In this Surah, many virtues of Shab-e-Qadr are mentioned.
The first virtue is that Allah Almighty revealed the Holy Qur’an on this night, which is a guide for mankind and is the happiness of this world and the hereafter.
Second Virtue: In the Surah, a questioning style was adopted to honor this night and to show the grace of Allah to His servants.
Third virtue: This night is better than a thousand months.
Little Virtue: Angels descend on this night, angels descend with goodness and mercy.
Fifth Virtue: This night is the night of peace, because on this night the slaves are freed from torment and punishment.
Sixth Virtue: Allah Almighty has revealed a whole surah related to this night which will be recited till the Day of Resurrection.
Allah Almighty states in Surah Al-Dukhan verse (3): “Verily, We have sent down the Qur’an in a blessed night. Verily, we were warners.” And this night was in the month of Ramadan, which Allah Almighty has stated in Surah Al-Baqarah verse (58): “The month of Ramadan is the month in which the Qur’an was revealed.”
