Holy Quran Verses from Pickthall and Yusufali's Translation

Surah Qadr: Power

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Yusufali:    We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power:
Pickthall:   Lo! We revealed it on the Night of Predestination.
Yusufali:    And what will explain to thee what the night of power is?
Pickthall:   Ah, what will convey unto thee what the Night of Power is!
Yusufali:    The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.
Pickthall:   The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.
Yusufali:    Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by God's permission, on every errand:
Pickthall:   The angels and the Spirit descend therein, by the permission of their Lord, with all decrees.
Yusufali:    Peace!...This until the rise of morn!
Pickthall:   (The night is) Peace until the rising of the dawn.


Let us pray (Sura 20, Ayat 114) 'Ya Rabbi Zidni Ilma!' ('O Lord! Increase me in knowledge.') and seek spiritual help (ta'yid) to understand our great faith.
