Turkey’s president on Tuesday honored Laylat al-Qadr (the Night of Power), which marks the first revelation of the Quran to Prophet Muhammad. 

“I congratulate our Laylat al-Qadr, which is heralded as more beneficial than a thousand months, when our book, the Holy Quran, was revealed, and I ask God that this blessed night brings good for our nation, the Islamic world and all humanity,” Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Twitter.

Laylat al-Qadr is the 27th night of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan and is being observed Tuesday evening in Turkey.
