Lailat-ul-Qadr (the Night of Decree)

Ibn `Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) reported:
Some of the Companions of the Prophet
(Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)
saw Lailat-ul-Qadr (Night of Decree) in their dreams
in the last seven nights of Ramadan,
whereupon the Messenger of Allah
(Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said,
"I see that your dreams all agree upon the last seven nights.
Whosoever seeks it, let him seek it in the last seven nights.''

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
"Tawat'at'' linguistically means to step or walk on, that is, to place
foot over the place where one's fellow kept his foot. Here, it is used
in the sense of correspondence. In other words, "I see that your dreams
all agree upon the last seven nights'' stands to mean "you had similar
dreams''. This was done by showing all of them the (spectacle) of
Lailat-ul-Qadr. On the strength of these dreams,
the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said
that Lailat-ul-Qadr should be sought in the last seven nights of Ramadan.
The wisdom of keeping it secret is to keep people awake to engage in worship
for a larger number of nights in this auspicious month.
