Salams to All,
Could somebody enlighten me about the purported significance of doing good deeds/donating to charity on Laylatul Qadar? So many emails I receive exhort me to stay up all night during the last 10 days of Ramadan because the night of power could be on any one of those days---especially if it's an odd-numbered date. Qur'an 97:3-5 is cited for the multiplication of merit with God during this time. But these same verses in QXP don't seem like they could be interpreted this way. Since I wasn't raised Muslim I am unsure how to interpret this information that apparently everyone just knows about. There seems to be a lot of folk knowledge about Ramadan that is leaving me confused.
