is a night of great blessings. It is better than a thousand
months. The people of the past had very long lives compared
to the much shorter lives of this Ummah. If this Ummah
then wished to compete with them in doing of the good
deeds, it would mean that because of the shorter lives

or surpass them. For this reason, Allah in His Infinite
Mercy granted this Ummah, this night of great blessing.
