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 an invaluable gift like Quran was given to the world of humanity. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala He has revealed the whole Surah which we know as Surah Al-Qadr.
Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
We have sent it down on the Night of Destiny. (1) And what will make you know what the Night of Destiny is? (2) The Night of Destiny is better than a thousand months. (3) The angels and the Spirit are therein, They come down with orders. (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 guidance 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 tell 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 a 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): “Surely We have revealed the Qur’an in a blessed night, surely We were warners. And this night was in the month of Ramadan, which Allaah has described in Surah al-Baqarah, verse 58: The month of Ramadaan is the month in which the Qur’aan was revealed.
