Surah al-Layl (Arabic: الليل‎, “The Night”) is the ninety-second sūrah (chapter) of the Qur’an, containing twenty-one āyāt (verses). This sūrah is one of the first ten to be revealed in Mecca. It contrasts two types of people, the charitable and the miserly, and describes each of their characteristics.

Surah al-Layl is a Meccan sura, and was among the first ten surahs to be revealed. Meccan suras are chronologically earlier suras that were revealed to the prophet Muhammad at Mecca before the hijrah to Medina in 622 CE. They are typically shorter, with relatively short ayat, and mostly come near the end of the Qur’an’s 114 sūwar. Most of the surahs containing muqatta’at are Meccan. According to Yusuf Ali, Al-Lail may be placed in the dating period close to Surat Al-Fajr and Ad-Dhuha (93). It is similar in subject matter to the chapter preceding it, Ash-Shams (91).

Benefits of reciting 

  1. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) has said that the reward of reciting this surah is so much that the one who recites it will be pleased when he sees it in his Book of Deeds. His inspiration for good deeds (Tawfiq) will also increase.
  2. If recited 15 times before sleeping, one will dream about what pleases him most.
  3. Reciting it in the I’sha prayers, carries the reward of completing a quarter of the Holy Qur’an and is guaranteed that the prayers are accepted.
