Tonight is the great night of Al-Qad'r

It is the anniversary of the starting of the Quran revelation in the month of Ramadan, on this blessed night.

As it is mentioned also in the Quran 44: 1-7
Read Quran in Uthmani Script Online

The explanation:
(ح م [: W. R.]
that means: Wisdom [: admonition, and] Repeated [stories.]
And the clarifying Book.

We revealed the [Quran] on a blessed night; We were used to warn [people of worshipping idols.]

During which all the admonishing am'rs [: angels] are distributed [to admonish the believers by the way of inspiration.]

Am'r [: angels] coming from Our [neighborhood in the ethereal heavens, the dwelling-place of angels]; We were used to send [angels to the prophets and apostles.]

[Sending those angels to the believers is] a mercy from your Lord [O Mohammed; for] He is the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing [of their condition.]

The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them; [then believe firmly in the words of Mohammed, Our messenger] if you do firmly believe.)

The night of power, better than thousand months. Its another great blessing of Allah in the month of Ramadan. Almighty Allah says in Quran "“Verily! We have sent it (this Qur’an) down in the Night of Decree (Lailatul-Qadr). And what will make you know what the Night of Decree is? The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months. Therein descend the angels and the Rooh (i.e. Gabriel) by Allah’s Permission with all Decrees, Peace! until the appearance of dawn.” (Sura’ Al-Qadr 97: 1-5)

Every Muslim must try to pray as much as one can in this night and seek forgiveness for the sins.
