Night of Qadr is Fatima (a) - hadiths and finding the meaning in Quran.

The Quran talks about day and night in contrast to each other. Sometimes this about the real night and day we are use to in the outward world, and other times it's towards a relative concept of truth manifesting and it being veiled.

The day of judgment is not a 24 hour day, but will take 50 000 thousand years till the ascension is finished, let alone other things.

Day of judgment means God's judgment will be so manifest and clear, and there is no room for denial, at all, nor room for excuses nor will the unjust be allowed to lead astray and revolt.

Now day of judgment is very important for addressing an argument God knows human would make, but comes down to, why is God and his proof to a great degree hidden and unseen. I'm arguing if you pay attention to the discussion of God's hiddenness and his proof manifest and hidden nature, this is an easy theme to see and it will become obvious laylatal Qadr is from the viewpoint of the value of God being veiled.

Even miracles performed by Prophets (a) are not to the extent the control God will take over the world on day of judgment and manifest his truth. God allowed it so people can irrationally attribute what Prophets (a) do and their power to sorcery and self-acquired power or even seen as possession by Jinn or that Jinn were performing it and the Prophet (a) was deceiving.

However, remember how it's relative, day and night. In this world, when truth is manifest through Messengers including them performing miracles, it's said to be that the sun of God is more open and truth of his sign is more manifest. So it's called day. That is why the day of God includes when Pharaoh was shown miracles and then destroyed by God.

The nights on the other hand, means, something went terribly wrong after the day, and truth to a great degree has been hidden.

Notice also God will manifest his judgment on day of judgment, but with respect to what? To the value that was hidden, that is why it's called the night of value. The value of God and his Messengers is all hidden.

As for the Quranic light and Mohammadiya reality, even with miracles, it's value is hidden till the day of judgment.

The 10 nights in Surah Fajr are said by a hadith to refer Al-Hassan to Al-Hassan and the morning to the faraj of Imam Mahdi (a), the night when it goes away to be the ghayba of Imam Mahdi (a), and the Witr (Single) Mohammad (s) and even/pair (Fatima (a) and Ali (a)). But there the night doesn't mean exactly the same as night of Qadr. Night of Qadr is with respect to day of judgment, while the nights there are with respect to the victory of Imam Mahdi (a) and the rule of truth after.

Now all value in creation is contained in Mohammad (s) and this true of Fatima (a) as well. Fatima (a) though is the most hidden out of Ahlulbayt (a) because of the devalue of women in general and the people not understanding the truth of woman through out time. Fatima (a) as the example to all women, is more of a hidden truth. Although all of Ahlulbayt (a) are laylatal qadr, it's more befitting to emphasized the one who is most covered by darkness of falsehood.

I will be showing proof for this concept in Quran and hadiths. As for the night of Qadr in Ramadan, it's a ritualization that captures this concept. And it's a night that manifestation of truth occurs with double meaning. That is although it's till morning there is a certain type of peace, there is also a parable. Just as in hajj, the rituals have double meaning and even get layered deep with many things.

However, the night of Qadr is a contrast to day of judgment and as well as the appearance of truth of Imam Mahdi (a) rule. Day of judgment the "great tiding" which is the position of Welayat Ali (a) will be so apparent no one can deny the signs of God on that day. So the value of Welayat is in fact hidden, but God's religion will appear on the "fajr" which is the appearance of Imam Mahdi (a). Recalling what Quran has promised about destroyed cities and warning, it's saying, until the truth appears and the signs no longer hidden to a great degree, there will be no destroying of God of cities like promised in Surah Isra.

If you kept in mind the talk of signs and the hiding of it up to God as well in contrast, it's manifestation, then this theme is clear. It's an entire theme in the Quran. As the smaller Surahs summarize what is in the bigger Surahs repeated and themes emphasized through out, in a few words, this is no exception. This theme has to be somewhere in the smaller Surahs and it's here where it's found.

With peace.
