Tomorrow will be the first Laylat al-Qadr (Night of Value, Night of Destiny, one of the odd-numbered nights of the last ten days of Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar) of Ramadan in Azerbaijan, said the deputy chairman of the Caucasian Muslims Office Fuad Nurullayev in his statement to APA.

Also, there is a specific Qadr night, which falls on the evening of the 26th day of Ramadan. The “Qadr” sura in Quran contains 26 words. Therefore, it is usually said that may be that night is also the Qadr night. This year, that Qadr night coincides with the night of May 20 to 21”.
