Virtues of Surah Qadr Benefits (Chapter 97)
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In The Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
(The Night of Honour) Number of Verses: 5
Surah Qadr(Arabic: سورة القدر, "Power, Fate") is the 97th sura of the Qur'an is a ‘makki’ Surah with 5 ayat. As it is understood from the name of the Surah, it refers to the revelation of the Holy Qur'an on the Night of Honour and then, it describes the importance of the night and the Blessings thereon.
The chronological order of this Surah has no significance. Among the commentators it is known as a Meccan Surah, although some hold that it was revealed in Medina; as a narration denotes that the holy Prophet (S) dreamed that the Ommayides were climbing his pulpit. This was disturbing to the Prophet, to have such a dream, and he disliked it. Then, Surah Qadr was revealed to comfort him. (Therefore, some believe that the verse: “The Night of Honour is better than a thousand months" refers to the length of time that the Ommayides governed, which was about one thousand months), and we know that Mosques and pulpits were established and formed in Medina, not Mecca.
But, as it was said above, the Surah is known as Meccan and this narration may be a kind of application, not an occasion of revelation.
