The Descendance of the Angels in Laylatul-Qadr

In this night of Laylatul-Qadr, angels of Allah descend down the sky and they are great in numbers so much so that they fill whole sky.There is constant flow of angels from the sky who come and leave. They deliver Salam on those Muslims who are busy in worshipping Allah (s.w.t). Angels seek out for the true worshippers of Allah (s.w.t).

HazratJibril (a.s), the angel who carried the Qur’an in the form of Wahi from Allah (s.w.t) to prophet (s.a.w), also descends on this night. Imagine the greatness of this night.

Laylatul-Qadr is not any fixed night in the month of Ramadan rather we get to learn from Sunnah of Prophet (s.a.w) that we need to find it in the odd nights of last ten days of Ramadan. There are many signs of LaylatulQadr, for example, sun will be bright and clear on the morning after that night of power. It means that rays of sunlight will be blocked because of the wings of angels.
