Omar Suleiman – The Night of Your Life : Tafseer of Surah al-Qadr

By: Sajeda Ahmed

إِنَّا أَنزَلْنَاهُ فِي لَيْلَةِ ٱلْقَدْرِ
وَمَآ أَدْرَاكَ مَا لَيْلَةُ ٱلْقَدْرِ
لَيْلَةُ ٱلْقَدْرِ خَيْرٌ مِّنْ أَلْفِ شَهْرٍ
تَنَزَّلُ ٱلْمَلاَئِكَةُ وَٱلرُّوحُ فِيهَا بِإِذْنِ رَبِّهِم مِّن كُلِّ أَمْرٍ
سَلاَمٌ هِيَ حَتَّىٰ مَطْلَعِ ٱلْفَجْرِ
“We have indeed revealed this (message) on the Night of Power: And what will explain to you what the Night of Power is? The Night of Power is better than a thousand months. Therein come down the Angels and the Spirit (Jibreel) by Allah’s permission, on every errand: Peace! This until the rise of Morn!”                                   (Surah al-Qadr)

For many Muslims around the world, the crowning jewel of Ramadan is worshiping during Laylatul Qadr, the Night of Power. Allah (SWT) tells us in the Quran that it was on this night Angel Jibreel (Gabriel) came with the Revelation of the Quran to our Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).

In “The Night of Your Life – Tafseer of Surah al-Qadr” Sheikh Omar Suleiman discusses several interesting aspects of this night that are not as well known. This lecture is especially refreshing for those of us who would like to learn something new about the Night of Power that we have never knew before.
