    Why Is It Called Laylat Al-Qadr

    Why Is It Called Laylat Al-Qadr

    Named Laylat Al-Qadr because at this night, the angel ordered by God Almighty to write provisions about the goodness, sustenance and blessings in this year, as Allah Almighty says :

    “we sent it down during a Blessed night: for we (ever) wish to warn (against evil). In the (Night) is made distinct every affair of Wisdom, by command, from Our Presence. for we (ever) send (revelations)” (Qur’an Surah Ad-Dukhaan, verse 3-5).

    Al-Qurtubi said that on that night also, the angels come down from heaven and from every Sidrotul Muntaha to earth and say amen to the prayers spoken by humans until dawn. The angels and Gabriel Alaihis Salaam come down with mercy on the orders of Allah Almighty, also bring any matters that have been determined and established by God in the year to come. Laylat al Qodr is the welfare and the goodness of the whole night without any ugliness until dawn, as Allah says in Qur'an Surah Al-Qadr, verse 4-5 :

    “Therein come down the angels and the spirit by Allah.s permission, on every errand: Peace!...This until the rise of morn!”
