The Night Worth A Thousand Months

إِنّا أَنزَلناهُ في لَيلَةِ القَدرِ

وَما أَدراكَ ما لَيلَةُ القَدرِ

“We sent it down on the Laylah al-Qadr. And how will you know Laylah al-Qadr?”
Qur’an, 97: 1-2

Qadr – what does it mean? Is it “measurement”? Is it “power” (qudrah)? Is it “worth” or “rank”? Certainly one of its qualities is,

خَيرٌ مِن أَلفِ شَهرٍ

“[It’s worth is] better than a thousand nights!”
Qur’an, 97: 3

So let me ask you: If it is the night of measurement, of power, or worth, than ask yourself, “What is my self-worth?” “What am I worth?” “What is my soul worth?” Can our souls be bought for a few dollars? A few million? Can they be measured by brand names? How powerful is our soul? Is it weak? Is it strong?

Seek those answers in the Night Worth A Thousand Months.
