The first placement of the word لَيْلَةِ is in Verse # 51 Chapter # 02 and the last placement of the word is in لَيْلَةُ Verse # 03 Chapter # 97


The first placement of the word قَدِيْرٌ is in Verse # 20 Chapter # 02 and the last placement of the word is in الْقَدْرِ Verse # 03 Chapter # 97 


The first placement of the word خَيْرٌ is in Verse # 54 Chapter # 02 in which Moses(A.S) is addressing his nation. Their wrongdoing act led them to a state where Allah Subhan O Talah revealed a revelation on Moses(A.S) to convey a message to his nation about their wrongdoing act(Worshipping calf) and implemented two conditioned for the acceptance of wrongdoers repentance. First, they have to repent to their Master(Baari’i-Kum – Baari’ – is interestingly used in this ayah. It is used a lot in Hebrew for Allah as Rabb Master/Lord.) and Second kill yourselves (each Jewish tribe would kill its members who had worshipped the calf).

وَاِذْ قَالَ مُوْسٰى لِقَوْمِهٖ يٰقَوْمِ اِنَّكُمْ ظَلَمْتُمْ اَنْفُسَكُمْ بِاتِّخَاذِكُمُ الْعِجْلَ فَتُوْبُوْٓا اِلٰى بَارِىِٕكُمْ فَاقْتُلُوْٓا اَنْفُسَكُمْ ۭ ذٰلِكُمْ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ عِنْدَ بَارِىِٕكُمْ ۭ فَتَابَ عَلَيْكُمْ ۭ اِنَّھٗ ھُوَ التَّوَّابُ الرَّحِيْمُ

And ˹remember˺ when Moses said to his people, “O my people! Surely you have wronged yourselves by worshipping the calf, so turn in repentance to your Creator and execute ˹the calf-worshippers among˺ yourselves. That is best for you in the sight of your Creator.” Then He accepted your repentance. Surely He is the Accepter of Repentance, Most Merciful.

The last placement of the word خَيْرٌ is in Verse # 08 Chapter # 100 in which Allah Subhan O Talah is also referring to another type of person who is intensely fall in the love of wealth. So that kind of person should also submit himself to Allah Subhan O Talah and exercise repentance. Surely Allah Subhan O Talah is the Accepter of Repentance.

وَاِنَّهٗ لِحُبِّ الْخَيْرِ لَشَدِيْدٌ

And indeed he is, in love of wealth, intense.


The first placement of the word مِّنْ is in Verse # 04 Chapter # 02 in which Allah Subhan O Talah is distinctively mentioning the quality of a believer that a true follower will advocate what has been revealed to you and what was revealed before you. A true believer will acknowledge the incident of Moses(A.S) and consequences of the his nation which they face by worshipping the calf.

وَ الَّذِيْنَ يُؤْمِنُوْنَ بِمَآ اُنْزِلَ اِلَيْكَ وَمَآ اُنْزِلَ مِنْ قَبْلِكَ ۚ وَبِالْاٰخِرَةِ ھُمْ يُوْقِنُوْنَ

And who believe in what has been revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you, and of the Hereafter they are certain [in faith].

The last placement of the word مِّنْ is in Verse # 06 Chapter # 114 , those who do not believe on the revelation of Rasool Allah(SAW) are encircle by gossips of Evil forces. These forces could be from Jinn and Mankind.

مِنَ الْجِنَّةِ وَالنَّاسِ

From among the jinn and mankind.”


The first placement of the word اَلْفِ is in Verse # 96 Chapter # 02. Allah Subhan O Talah is alluding to those who attached themselves to worldly things and do not want to leave this world. One of them wishes that he could be granted life a thousand years. Allah Subhan O Talah is well aware of what they do. Just expand your thinking canvas and relate what Allah Subhan O Talah is a blessing to a believer one night is far better than thousand moths and on the opposite side visualize those who attached themselves to worldly things and their wish that they do not want to leave this world at all.

وَلَتَجِدَنَّھُمْ اَحْرَصَ النَّاسِ عَلٰي حَيٰوةٍ ڔ وَمِنَ الَّذِيْنَ اَشْرَكُــوْا ڔ يَوَدُّ اَحَدُھُمْ لَوْ يُعَمَّرُ اَلْفَ سَـنَةٍ ۚ وَمَا ھُوَ بِمُزَحْزِحِهٖ مِنَ الْعَذَابِ اَنْ يُّعَمَّرَ ۭ وَاللّٰهُ بَصِيْرٌۢ بِمَا يَعْمَلُوْنَ

And you will surely find them the most greedy of people for life – [even] more than those who associate others with Allah . One of them wishes that he could be granted life a thousand years, but it would not remove him in the least from the [coming] punishment that he should be granted life. And Allah is Seeing of what they do.

The last placement of the word اٖلٰفِهِمْis in Verse # 02 Chapter # 106 where Allah Subhan O Talah is mentioning His blessings on Quraysh اٖلٰفِهِمْ رِحْلَةَ الشِّتَاۗءِ وَالصَّيْفِ Their accustomed security [in] the caravan of winter and summer.


The first placement of the word شَهْرٍ is in Verse # 185 Chapter # 02 Allah Subhan O Talah introducing the prominent month and a singular book, the month is “Ramadan” and the book is “the Holy Qur’an”. Not only He is outlining the importance of the month of fasting in Ramadan. In the same Ayah announcing the exceptions. Showing His intension “So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey – then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you, and perhaps you will be grateful.

شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِيْٓ اُنْزِلَ فِيْهِ الْقُرْاٰنُ ھُدًى لِّلنَّاسِ وَ بَيِّنٰتٍ مِّنَ الْهُدٰى وَالْفُرْقَانِ ۚ فَمَنْ شَهِدَ مِنْكُمُ الشَّهْرَ فَلْيَصُمْهُ ۭ وَمَنْ كَانَ مَرِيْضًا اَوْ عَلٰي سَفَرٍ فَعِدَّةٌ مِّنْ اَيَّامٍ اُخَرَ ۭ يُرِيْدُ اللّٰهُ بِكُمُ الْيُسْرَ وَلَا يُرِيْدُ بِكُمُ الْعُسْرَ ۡ وَلِتُكْمِلُوا الْعِدَّةَ وَلِتُكَبِّرُوا اللّٰهَ عَلٰي مَا ھَدٰىكُمْ وَلَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُوْنَ

The last placement of the word شَهْرٍ is in Verse # 03 Chapter # 97. This one month is not an ordinary month. With simple extrapolation (1000months/12(Number of months in year) = 83.33 years). The Night of Decree( لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ ) is corresponding to 83.33 years of Ibada(Prayers).

لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ ڏ خَيْرٌ مِّنْ اَلْفِ شَهْرٍ

The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months.
