Angels on Laylatul-Qadr (the Night of Decree): (Translated by Dawud Burbank)
*IMAAM ABOO DAAWOOD AT-TAYAALISEE-rahimahullaah (d. 204 H) reported in his Musnad (no. 2545):
Imraan narrated to us: from Qataadah: from Aboo Maymooonah: from Aboo Hurairah: that Allaah’s Messenger ( ﷺ) said, concerning Laylatul-Qadr (the Night of Decree):
” لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ لَيْلَةُ السَّابِعَةِ ، أَوِ التَّاسِعَةِ وَعِشْرِينَ ،
إِنَّ الْمَلَائِكَةَ تِلْكَ اللَّيْلَةَ أَكْثَرُ فِي الْأَرْضِ مِنْ عَدَدِ الْحَصَى ” .
«Laylatul-Qadr is the twenty seventh or the twenty ninth night. The Angels that night upon the earth are more than the number of the pebbles».
*Shaikh al-Albaanee -rahimahullaah- said in as-Saheehah (no. 2205)
Reported by at-Tayaalisee in his Musnad(no. 2545),and from him
by Ahmad (2/519), and likewise by Ibn Khuzaymah in his Saheeh (2/223):
from Imraan al-Qattaan: from Qataadah: from Aboo Maymoonah: from Aboo Hurairah marfoo`an. I say: And this is a hasan chain of narration; and al-Haafiz remained silent about it in al-Fath(4/209).
