Laylat al-Qadr begins at sundown

April 4

Laylat Al Qadr is considered the holiest night of the year for Muslims and is held on the 27th day of Ramadan.

Translated into English as the Night of Decree, Night of Power, Night of Value, Night of Destiny, or Night of Measures, it commemorates the night that the Quran was first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad.

On this night the blessings and mercy of God are abundant, sins are forgiven, supplications are accepted, and the annual decree is revealed to the angels who also descend to earth, especially the angel Gabriel, to perform every and any errand decreed by God.
