"We have indeed revealed this message in the Night of Power. And what will explain to thee what the Night of Power is? The Night of Power is better than a thousand months. Therein come down the angels and the spirit by God's permission, on every errand: Peace! This until the rise of morn." The Quran (97:1-5)
Damascus mosques are full of worshippers who will spend the whole night praying till the early morning hours. Laylat al-Qadr, or Night of Power, is the holiest night of the holiest month. On Laylat al-Qadr, the Quran was revealed to Mohammad (PBUH). For Muslims, it is a time when the gates of heaven are open and prayers are all answered. Blessed be your night.
