This blessed night is very observed by the Muslims who are invited to make invocations, prayers, to recite the Koran, and to ask for forgiveness for the committed sins.
" The night of the fate is generally situated in the last ten nights of the month of Ramadan, more exactly in the odd nights of this month. It varies from one year to the next according to certain revealing signs.
But most of the Oulémas (scholars, theologians in Islam) judge that it is the night of the twenty seventh .
Literally " The night of The Power " or of the " Fate", it is a night in the course of which the Koran came down in its totality from the table kept for the sky of the world then in the soul of the Prophet.
The Koran, following the example of the other books, was revealed during the month of Ramadhan, for the first time, one night of the year 610 of the Christian era. This period is considered as particularly crowned because it is there that the Archangel Gabriel ( Jibril ) that the Peace of Allah is on Him, addressed for the first time the Prophet Mohammad. Twenty fifth in the chronological order, the sura 97 consists of five verses, inspiration ( mecquoise ). It describes this night being worth " more than one thousand months... The peace accompanies this night until the dawn. " It is said that Aïcha, that Allah approves her, explained that "Laylatoul Qadr" was the soul of the Prophet. "
