Respected Sister, Salam o Rahmat!

You have heard a lot of folklore about Laylatul Qadr. Quite a few Ahadith say that the 27th of Ramadhan night is the most likely Night of Majesty. I would pray 2 units of Namaz on this night and recite this Surah once, then ask Allah for His blessings. Tomorrow, the 29th is as good.

Surah 97. Al-Qadr – The Majesty

[Author’s Note] This is the 97th Surah of the Qur’an. It has 5 verses. The Night of Majesty is when the entire Qur’an was revealed through Gabriel on the exalted Messenger’s heart in the month of Ramadhan in the year 610 CE. Its order and arrangement was exactly as we see today. Thereafter, it was conveyed to mankind in stages over a period of 23 years. Contrary to popular belief, Iqra was not the first word revealed to the exalted Prophet. The Qur’an came as the Ultimate Criterion between the Right and the Wrong and ushered in a Splendor that has been spreading on earth during the last 14 centuries, hence the Night of Majesty or the Night of Destiny. 2:87-97, 2:185, 9:32-33, 14:1, 16:2, 17:85-86, 26:193, 42:52, 44:1-4, 70:4, 78:38, 81:17-19]

With the Glorious Name of God the Instant and Sustaining Source of all Mercy and Kindness

97:1 Indeed, We have revealed it in the Night of Majesty. [44:3]

97:2 Ah, what will enlighten you what it is, the Night of Majesty!

97:3 The Night of Majesty is better than a thousand months. [A day of enlightenment is better than a lifetime of ignorance]

97:4 The universal forces and the Divine Revelation have descended therein, by their Lord’s Leave and shall work in concert with every decree to carry out His plan.

97:5 Peace! It is a Message of Peace and Security, and inevitably, a new Morning of Enlightenment shall dawn. [39:69]
