Sura Al-Qadr from 1 to 7

Sûrat Al- Qadr
( The Night of Decree ) XCVII
In the Name of Allâh,
the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
1. Verily, We have sent it ( this Qur’ân ) down in the night of Al- Qadr ( Decree ) . [ 1 ]
2. And what will make you know what the night of Al- Qadr ( Decree ) is?
3. The night of Al- Qadr ( Decree ) is better than a thousand months ( i.e. worshipping Allâh in that night is better than worshipping Him a thousand months, i.e. 83 years and 4 months ) .
4. Therein descend the angels and the Rûh [ Jibrîl ( Gabrîl ) ] by Allâh’s Permission with all Decrees,
5. ( All that night ) , there is Peace ( and Goodness from Allâh to His believing slaves ) until the appearance of dawn. [ 2 ]
Sûrat Al- Bayyinah
( The Clear Evidence ) XCVIII
In the Name of Allâh,
the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
1. Those who disbelieve from among the people of the Scripture ( Jews and Christians ) and Al- Mushrikûn, [ 3 ] were not going to leave ( their disbelief ) until there came to them clear evidence.
2. A Messenger ( Muhammad ( saas ) ) from Allâh, reciting ( the Qur’ân ) purified pages [ purified from Al- Bâtil ( falsehood ) ] .
3. Wherein are correct and straight laws from Allâh.
4. And the people of the Scripture ( Jews and Christians ) differed not until after there came to them clear evidence ( i.e. Prophet Muhammad ( saas ) and whatever was revealed to him ) .
5. And they were commanded not, but that they should worship Allâh, and worship none but Him Alone ( abstaining from ascribing partners to Him ) , and perform As- Salât ( Iqâmat- as- Salât ) and give Zakât, and that is the right religion.
6. Verily, those who disbelieve ( in the religion of Islâm, the Qur’ân and Prophet Muhammad ( saas ) ) from among the people of the Scripture ( Jews and Christians ) and Al- Mushrikûn will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures. [ 4 ]
7. Verily, those who believe [ in the Oneness of Allâh, and in His Messenger Muhammad ( saas ) ) including all obligations ordered by Islâm ]
and do righteous good deeds, they are the best of creatures.

[1] (V.97:1) "Therein (that night) is decreed every matter of ordainments." [The Qur’ân, (Verse 44:4)]**
** i.e., the matters of deaths, births, provisions, calamities for the whole ( coming ) year as decreed by Allâh.

[2] (V.97:5) Narrated ‘Âishah (raa): Allâh’s Messenger (saas) said, "Search for the Night of Qadr in the odd nights of the last ten nights of Ramadan." (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol. 3, Hadith No.234).

[3] (V.98:1) Al-Mushrikûn: polytheists, pagans, idolaters and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allâh and His Messenger Muhammad (saas).

[4] (V.98:6) It is obligatory to have Belief in the Messengership of the Prophet (Muhammad (saas)). Narrated Abu Hurairah (raa): Allâh’s Messenger (saas) said: "By Him (Allâh) in Whose Hand Muhammad’s soul is, there is none from amongst the Jews and Christians (of these present nations) who hears about me and then dies without believing in the Message with which I have been sent (i.e. Islâmic Monotheism) but he will be from the dwellers of the (Hell) Fire." (Sahih Muslim, the Book of Faith, Vol.1, Chapter No.240). See also (V.3:85) and (V.3:116).
