Ramazan 27

Tonight was the 27th of Ramazan, which is traditionally associated with Shab-i-Qadr – variously translated as the Night of Power, the Night of Predestination, the Grand Night – about which the Quran asks its readers: “And what will explain to you what the Night of Power is?”

Personally, what can explain to me is the coincidence that Rumi wrote a Masnavi as “the Quran in Persian”, his disciple Iqbal claimed about his own poetry that it contained nothing but the essence of the Quran; out of this literature a sovereign state was conceived but the British Viceroy didn’t agree with Muslims about when it should be born and for his very own reasons he thrust upon them a moment several months ahead of their preference, and, that very moment turned out be Ramazan 27.

For many spiritually inclined Pakistanis, one of the most special things about their country is that its date of birth – the midnight of August 14 and 15, 1947 – coincided with Shab-i-Qadr:

    1. Indeed We revealed this on the Night of Power:
    2. And what will explain to you what the Night of Power is?
    3. The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.
    4. Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by their Lord's permission, on every errand:
    5. Peace it is till the rising of the dawn.


  1. Thank u for giving us such good references about the night of power. Your research always gives me good awareness.

  2. Sir about shabe Qadar, is it true that if its really a shabe qadar then no dog will bark the whole night?

  3. Saleem Bhai and ReeBz, thanks. I don't know about silence of the dogs thing.

  4. This showing of what might be apparently coincidence certainly sounds much more than that. I have spiritual chills and awe.

  5. Khurram Sahib, this is a very reveling and I just want to mention following:

    Pakistan and Significance of number 7.
    Pakistan came into existence according to Georgian calendar on 14th August 1947 and according to Hijri calendar on 27th Ramadan 1366.
    According to Georgian Calendar 1+4+8+1+9+4+7=34 OR 3+4=7
    According to Hijri Calendar 2+7+9+1+3+6+6=34 OR 3+4=7
    SURA QADR IS 97 CHAPTER OF QURAN 9+7=16 OR 1+6=7

    Can there be some significance in this?

  6. More numerology on Pakistan day according to both calendars.
    14 08 1947
    9=highest level of change
    Total 34 or 3+4=7 consciousness
    In both number counts Georgian and Hijra the cumulative number is 7 which denote consciousness, the real bane of creation of Pakistan.

    27 Ramadan 1366
    27 Ramadan night of POWER (LAILATUL QADR) 1=individual 3=communication(revealing) and 66 according to abjd are number counts for ALLAH.
    This means on night of power 27 Ramadan 1366 Allah communicated and revealed a sign called PAKISTAN.

  7. Connie I read your comment on night of power,we need to talk more about night of power and maybe pray tohether next yr on night of power for world peace inshallah!
