In the name of Allah, The One Who Acts with Mercy, The Source of Mercy

Qur’an, Sura Al Qadr [The Power], Chapter 97

4. On it, the angels and the Ruh [Holy Spirit; Jibril (Archangel Gabriel)] descend by the permission of their Rab [Lord] in regard to every matter (and request).

5. Peace it is, until the rising of the fajr [dawn].

Transliteration of Suratul Qadr:

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
Inna anzalna hu fi laylatil qadr
Wa ma adraka ma laylatul qadr
Laylatul qadri khayrun min alfi shahr
Tanazzalul malaa-ikatu war-Ruhu fiha bi-izni Rabbihim min kulli amr:
Salaamun hiya hatta matla’il fajr.
