List of dates for other years
Muslims see the Prophet Mohammad (also known as Muhammad) as the last prophet who received God's word and wrote it down to form the Koran (Qu'ran). He received the Koran's first verses, when he meditated in the Cave of Hira near Mecca, now in Saudi Arabia. The anniversary of this date is known as Laylat al-Qadr.
While many commentators believe the date of this night is the 27th day of Ramadan, there are differing opinions. The day will most likely fall in the last 10 days of Ramadan, and is likely to be on an odd-numbered day, depending on the interpretation of the Koran and the Prophet Mohammed’s sayings.
