p. 1765


Qadr, or The Night of Power (or Honour).

In the name of God, Most Gracious,
Most Merciful.

1. We have indeed revealed
This (Message)
In the Night of Power:

2. And what will explain
To thee what the Night
Of Power is?

3. The Night of Power
Is better than
A thousand Months,

4. Therein come dawn
The angels and the Spirit
By God's permission,
On every errand:

5. Peace!…This
Until the rise of Morn!
