"..the Grand Night is better than a thousand months. The Angels and the Spirit descend therein by the permission of their Lord for (decreeing) every affair. Peace! it is till the breaking of the dawn.

Holy Qur'an (97: 3 5)

The Holy Book further says:

"Surely We revealed it on a blessed night -Indeed We are ever warning. Therein every wise affair is made distinct. A command from Us; surely We are the senders."

Holy Qur'an (44 3 - 5)

When asked about Allah's saying "We revealed it on a blessed night...", Imam Muhammad aI-Baqir (a.s.) replied:

"Yes, it is Laylat-ul- Qadr, it comes every year, in the month of Ramadhwr, during its last ten nights. The Qur'an was not sent down but on the Grand Night as Allah says:In it every wise affair is made clear. That is, He decrees that night everything to happen during the year..Questioned further on what is meant by "Laylat-ul- Qadr is better than a thousand months?~ He said, Good deeds - such as prayer charity, and etc. done that night are better than similar deeds during a thousand months without the Grand Night ..."

Hence, every believer has been enjoined to keep awake the whole Night of Qadr in prayer and seeking from the Almighty, pardon for sins and bounties he/she desires for.

A commentator says that the term thousand must be talen in an indefinite sense, i.e. a timeless time, and interprets it to mean that one moment of enlightenment under

Allah's light is better than thousands of months or the year of animal life, and such a moment converts the night of darkness into a period of spiritual glory.

Concerning forgiveness and granting of divine bounties on this night there is a justification attached. After fasting for forty days the Lord granted Prophet Moses (a.s.) the Law (Exodus 24:18) and after a similar fasting period Prophet Jesus (a.s.) was commissioned with his office (Mathew 4:2). Thus, there is justification in the Almighty's special grant
