It is said that the Night of Power (Laylatul-Qadr) is better than a thousand months. Is there a special reason for the use of the number a thousand?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Once, the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said to his Companions that a man from Sons of Israel girded on his weapons and made jihad in the way of Allah for one thousand months. When the Companions were astonished by it, Allah Almighty sent down this chapter. (Tajrid-Sarih Translation, VI, 313).

Lord states the following in this chapter:

"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 Allah´s permission, on every errand: Peace!...This until the rise of morn!" (al-Qadr, 97/ 1-5)
