Laylat al-Qadr, also known as Shab-e-Qadr, the Night of Power, the Night of Decree or the Night of Measures, is the anniversary of two important dates in Islam that occurred during the month of Ramadan.

It is the anniversary of the night Muslims believe the first verses of the Koran were revealed to the Prophet Muhammad. It is also the anniversary of the night in which the Koran is believed by Muslims to have been revealed in its entirety.

It is traditionally celebrated each year on the 27th night of Ramadan.
