Moon on 27th Ramadan

November 1, 2005

So the 27th of Ramadan is accepted as a significant date for Muslims as it is the date on which the Quran was originally revealed. It is also known as ‘Lailat-ul-Qadr’, or the Night of Power/Decree. to quote from the Qur’an:

“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.” (97:1-5)

So that’s the background. It’s one of those things which are a little nebulous, as it can fall on any of the odd nights in the last ten of Ramadan. But as I arrived back home from the Mosque early on the morning of the 27th, I took this picture of the moon as the sun rose (click to enlarge):
