La Notte del Destino

First Night of The Last Ten Nights of Ramadan
at Imam 'Ali Mosque in Najaf, Iraq

The Laylat al Qadr - Night of Power or Night of Destiny - falls on one of the odd numbered nights of the last ten nights of Ramadan. On that night, the first verses of the Qur'an were revealed to the Prophet. ()

The exact night is known by evidence of the following morning:
"On the morning following the Night of Qadr, the sun rises not having any rays, as if it were a brass dish, until it rises up."
which is a way of looking at things that is rather refreshing.
