We sent it on a blessed night

God, Glory be to Him, has the right to prefer one time or another, or a place, or a people, or a messenger, or a book. He’s got the whole thing, and he’s the wisest of rulers, Glory be to Him. We live this month for days and nights, perhaps the most blessed and virtuous. فيها ليلة القدر، وقد ورد في شأنها ما جاء في سورة القدر فقد قال تعالى: { إِنَّا أَنزَلْنَاهُ فِي لَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ * وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ * لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ خَيْرٌ مِّنْ أَلْفِ شَهْرٍ * تَنَزَّلُ الْمَلائِكَةُ وَالرُّوحُ فِيهَا بِإِذْنِ رَبِّهِم مِّن كُلِّ أَمْرٍ * سَلامٌ هِيَ حَتَّى The Beginning of Dawn) (Surat Al-Qadr). وما جاء في صدر سورة الدخان، قال تعالى : { حم * وَالْكِتَابِ الْمُبِينِ * إنا أنزلناه في ليلة مباركة إِنَّا كُنَّا مُنذِرِينَ * فِيهَا يُفْرَقُ كُلُّ أَمْرٍ حَكِيمٍ * أَمْرًا مِّنْ عِندِنَا إِنَّا كُنَّا مُرْسِلِينَ * رَحْمَةً مِّن رَّبِّكَ إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ } (الدخان، الآيات 1-6).

Surah al-Qadr spoke of the revelation of the Quran on the Night of Decree, which is the descent of the Preserved Tablet to the House of Glory in one whole; Among the blessings of this night is the revelation of the Quran on this subject, and Almighty God reminds us of this. This is the second time that the Quran is celebrated during the month of fasting. When God defined the month of Ramadan, he defined it as the one in which the Quran was revealed, and here in Surah Al-Qadr another warning, Laylat al-Qadr is the night of the revelation of the Quran. We derive from this the importance of the Quran in our lives, not only because it is a miracle, but because it is the basis of our life, our constitution and our way of life. Almighty God, who is light, spirit, counsel, blessing, criterion, healing, remembrance and mercy, and Muslims are entitled to have the Quran as an important matter in their lives.

The interrogative formula denoting the glorification of the night comes, “And what will make you aware of the Night of Decree”. The answer is that it’s better than a thousand months. It is a favor from Almighty God, which He has granted to His faithful servants; Worship there is equal to or greater than a thousand months, multiplying good deeds and blessings. In her, mercy descends, as the angels descend, preceded by Gabriel, peace be upon him, and the Almighty tells us that it is peace until dawn. It is an opportunity for every Muslim to earn his honor and grace, as it is a full night from sunset to dawn, not a hidden hour, but rather a continuous night, which is blessing, grace and mercy .

Scholars have opinions as to why it is called so much. It is said that he has value, worth and greatness, or that his life is fate. And it was said that the earth is shrinking because of the great number of angels coming down, and it was said that God decrees things this night for what will happen in the whole year… and so on .

As for Surah Al-Dukhan, the connotations of the words are also clear. The Almighty tells us that He revealed the Quran on a blessed night. And the Quran explains itself, because it is the Night of Decree, and it has been mentioned here that it is a night blessed with much good. The strange thing is that Almighty God combines this news with the warning. He warns his servants against failing to worship him and follow his approach, and he tells the Almighty that on that night he separates all wise matters. Wisdom is putting something in its right place, and He is the Wise, there is no god but Him, and He puts things in their right place according to His wisdom and His will. And the verse speaks of “every wise matter”, so we are not limiting ourselves to livelihoods or private matters, but rather any wise matter made wise by Almighty God that has to do with his creation.

And He says to the Almighty that things are according to His will and knowledge, therefore they come from Him, and He is the One who sends messengers, and whatever He desires, the one who disposes of His creation, he does not There is no objection to His decree, and nothing is incapable of Him, Glory be to Him.

It is a great night whose meaning and benefits we cannot understand. Perhaps what the Almighty has told us is little compared to his truth. Only the believer realizes such meanings, and his relationship with Almighty God gives him satisfaction and control. A permanent feeling of servitude to Almighty God and recourse to Him. And the believer, despite his approach to Almighty God, is independent of his worship, rather he fears to breach his right.

God wants to establish an argument for all of us with the many blessings He has bestowed on us, including the blessing of the Night of Decree, and perhaps this corresponds to a state of contentment from Almighty God, completely changing the condition of any of us toward righteousness, contentment, and servanthood toward Almighty God, and there is no greater victory than a feeling of comfort toward Almighty God, which he has He is pleased with you and I love you, for you are his guardian, and so there is no fear or sadness for you, for you are with Almighty God.

We want the Night of Decree to enjoy it in obedience to Almighty God, maybe it will elevate our destiny and our affairs, and maybe it will awaken our consciences and our feelings, and inspire us to work for the good of this religion Glory to him, there is no higher concern or purpose than his pleasure and to be loved by him.

I note that some scholars interested in numerical miracles have mentioned the determination of Laylat al-Qadr as the twenty-seventh night, based on the number of words in the sura, which is thirty, and the twenty-seventh word is “she “. Others said that “Laylat al-Qadr” consists of nine letters, and is repeated three times, and the result of its multiplication indicates the number “27”. In general, there is nothing wrong with such conclusions, but we are not sure, because the Messenger, may God bless him and grant him peace, did not specify them, rather he limited them to the last ten days, and in another hadith, the odd number of the last ten days, and there is no definitive evidence to determine them, in order to strive as much as possible to obtain a great reward for having it fact.

The Night of Decree is a bridge to closeness with God and a refinement of the personality to be in the degrees of servitude to Him, the Most High.

Bondage is not directing faces towards the direction of the qiblah and simply performing obligatory duties, but rather it is faith, certainty and contentment with Almighty God, and integrated morality with God, the servants and soul, it is a way of life which the Muslim is eager to pursue and earn. Kudos to those who have given things their due and trusted God with the right to trust.
