Laylat al-Qadr: Qur’ānic Revelation and Prophetic Inspiration

How was the Holy Qur’ān revealed to the Prophet Muhammad?
What is the Holy Spirit sent down in the Night of Power?
What is the relationship between the Holy Qur’ān and the Holy Imāms?

Ismaili Gnosis

According to Muslim tradition, the Prophet Muḥammad received the first revelations of the Holy Qur’ān on the Night of Power (laylat al-qadr) which is vividly described in the ṣūrahs below:

Verily, We sent it down in the Night of Power
And how can we tell you what is the Night of Power?
The Night of Power is greater than a thousand months.
The Angels and the Spirit descend in it by the permission of their Lord for every affair.
Peace it is, until the rising of the dawn.
(Ṣūrah al-Qadr – 97:1-5)
