The Best Translation of The Qur'an Meanings in English - Speech of God - WATTS

بِسْمِ ٱللَّٰهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

In The Name of God, The Most Merciful, The Ever-Merciful to His believing servants.

بِّسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ إِنَّآ أَنزَلْنَٰهُ فِى لَيْلَةِ ٱلْقَدْرِ

  1. Verily, We sent it—(the whole Qurʾan)—down (to the lowest heaven) during the Night of Decree (for it to be revealed piecemeal thereafter).

وَمَآ أَدْرَىٰكَ مَا لَيْلَةُ ٱلْقَدْرِ

  1. And what will inform you what is the Night of Decree?

لَيْلَةُ ٱلْقَدْرِ خَيْرٌ مِّنْ أَلْفِ شَهْرٍ

  1. The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months (i.e. worshipping God in that night is better than worshipping Him a thousand months, i.e. 83 years and 4 months).

تَنَزَّلُ ٱلْمَلَٰٓئِكَةُ وَٱلرُّوحُ فِيهَا بِإِذْنِ رَبِّهِم مِّن كُلِّ أَمْرٍ

  1. Therein descend the angels and the Spirit (Gabriel) by The Permission of their Lord with decrees for every affair.
