The Quran was sent down on a blessed night

I take refuge with Allaah, the Exalted, from the accursed devil.

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Bismillah-ir-Rahman-ir-Raheem: In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.

Welcome to my blog and praise the Magnificent Lord as you enter: Allahu Akbar: Allah is the Greatest .

May the Peace and Blessings of Allah Azza wa Jal, our Lord Glorified and Praised be He, be upon our beloved  Prophet, his Family, and Companions.

The Quran was sent down on a blessed night.

حم

(1. Ha Mim.)

وَالْكِتَـبِ الْمُبِينِ

(2. By the manifest Book that makes things clear.)

إِنَّآ أَنزَلْنَـهُ فِى لَيْلَةٍ مُّبَـرَكَةٍ إِنَّا كُنَّا مُنذِرِينَ

(3. We sent it down on a blessed night. Verily, We are ever warning.)

فِيهَا يُفْرَقُ كُلُّ أَمْرٍ حَكِيمٍ

(4. Therein (that night) is decreed every matter, Hakim.)

أَمْراً مّنْ عِنْدِنَآ إِنَّا كُنَّا مُرْسِلِينَ

(5. As a command from Us. Verily, We are ever sending,)

رَحْمَةً مّن رَّبّكَ إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ

(6. (As) a mercy from your Lord. Verily, He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower.)

رَبِ السَّمَـوتِ وَالاْرْضِ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَآ إِن كُنتُم مُّوقِنِينَ

(7. The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, if you (but) have a faith with certainty.)

لاَ إِلَـهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ يُحْىِ وَيُمِيتُ رَبُّكُمْ وَرَبُّ ءابَآئِكُمُ
الاْوَّلِينَ

(8. La ilaha illa Huwa. He gives life and causes death — your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers.)

Surah 44 Ad-Dukhan Verse 1-8

Tafsir Ibn Kathir

The Qur’an was revealed on Laylatul-Qadr,

Allah tells us that He revealed the Magnificent Qur’an on a blessed night, Laylatul-Qadr (the Night of Decree), as He says elsewhere:

(Verily, We have sent it down in the Night of Al-Qadr) (97:1). This was in the month of Ramadan, as Allah tells us:

(The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur’an) (2:185). We have already quoted the relevant Hadiths in (the Tafsir of) Surat Al-Baqarah, and there is no need to repeat them here.

(Verily, We are ever warning.) means, telling them what is good for them and what is harmful for them, according to Shari`ah, so that the proof of Allah may be established against His servants.

(Therein (that night) is decreed every matter, Hakim.) means, on Laylatul-Qadr, the decrees are transferred from Al-Lawh Al-Mahfuz to the (angelic) scribes who write down the decrees of the (coming) year including life span, provision, and what will happen until the end of the year. This was narrated from Ibn `Umar, Mujahid, Abu Malik, Ad-Dahhak and others among the Salaf.

(Hakim) means decided or confirmed, which cannot be changed or altered. Allah says:

(As a command from Us.) meaning, everything that happens and is decreed by Allah and the revelation that He sends down — it all happens by His command, by His leave and with His knowledge.

(Verily, We are ever sending,) means, to mankind, sending Messenger who will recite to them the clear signs of Allah. The need for this was urgent.

((As) a mercy from your Lord. Verily, He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower. The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them,) means, the One Who sent down the Qur’an is the Lord, Creator and Sovereign of the heavens and the earth and everything in between them.

(if you (but) have a faith with certainty.) Then Allah says:

(La ilaha illa Huwa. He gives life and causes death — your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers.) This is like the Ayah:

(Say: “O mankind! Verily, I am sent to you all as the Messenger of Allah — to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. La ilaha illa Huwa. He gives life and causes death…) (7:158)
