Summary: 

So we come to Ramadan’s night of power. The 27th day of Ramadan is Laylat al-Qadr (sometimes rendered Laylatul Qadr). It is also known as Shab-e-Qadr, and means Night of Decree or Night of Measures. Muslims regard it as the best, most powerful day of the whole year. They believe the first verses of the quran were revealed to Muhammed on this day in 610AD. For them, prayer made on this day is worth a lifetime of prayers at other times. ...

Because Laylat al-Qadr is a night of decrees, we need to be aware of its ability to inspire Muslims to bless their own prosperity and that of the Islamic world in general, at the expense of the world of unbelievers. Indeed, to them, the latter is a ‘house of war.’ Muslims always decree favour on Dar al Islam at the expense of Dar al Harb. ...

Because Laylat al-Qadr is such a powerful day in the Islamic calendar, Muslim terrorists have traditionally regarded it as a good time to launch attacks.

According to an article on news.com.au, ‘Security agencies are expected to be on high alert for the last 10 days of Ramadan, particularly on the Night of Power … Muslims traditionally spend the night in prayer and devotion which is said to equate to 1000 months of proper worship. But the significance of the event has also made it a target for terror attacks.’

Security forces are aware of the threat during the whole of Ramadan, but Laylat al-Qadr is particularly dangerous. In 2017 Fox News reported: ‘Law enforcement officials around the world are on high alert this week as ISIS calls for a surge of civilian attacks during Islam’s “Night of Power,” the holiest day on the Islamic calendar.’

In its time Islamic State launched numerous Ramadan attacks, and we should be wrong to think their demise has brought such threats to an end. It may be their sleepers are now embedded across the world. News.com.au also say: ‘Other Islamist groups including al-Qaeda and al-Shabaab have also used the holy month to inflict death and destruction on its enemies.’
