In Islam, Laylat al-Qadr or Qadr Night is when the Quran was sent down from Heaven and revealed to the prophet Muhammad [peace be unto him.] The specific date is not mentioned in the Quran although it is believed to be one of the last ten days of Ramadan, and the last five odd-numbered nights hold special significance. For Shias Muslims the 23rd is important. For many Sunnis Muslims, the night before the 27th day of Ramadan holds special significance. Muslim holidays begin and end at sundown on the first and last days listed.
