Syedna Nasir Khusro on Laylatul Qadr

Dai Nasir-i Khusraw explains the significance of this night saying: ” You illuminate the mosques on the Night of Qadr and make it as bright as the day, while your hearts are as dark as the darkest night. Know that illuminations are not enough. When you light the lamps, remind yourselves that your dark hearts, without inner purifications, will not become enlightened by the lamps”.
