Shab-E-Qadr or Lailat-ul Qadr

Shab-e-Qadr or the Lailat-ul-Qadr is a very blessed night which occurs on one of the odd nights during the last ten days of the holy month of Ramadan. It was during this night that the Holy Quran began to be revealed to Prophet Mohammed. These odd nights, therefore, are known as Lailat-ul-Qadr or the Nights of Power, during which night vigils are observed and extra prayers are offered. The precise date of the Lailat-ul-Qadr is said to have been known only to the Prophet and a few of his Companions. The Holy Quran mentions that the Lailat-ul-Qadr is better than one thousand nights.
