Wisdom of the Secret Night Laylat al-Qadar
In a book of Thaharah al-Qulub wa al-Khudlu li Allam al-Ghuyub, Sayyed Abdul Aziz al-Darani uses interesting parables to describe the wisdom of keeping secret lailatul qadr. He said:Verily Allah ta’ala keeps Lailatul Qadar in Ramadhan so that believers try (persevere in worship) for the remainder of the month (Ramadhan) just as Allah keeps a guardian among believers so that all (people) will be glorified (people) or treated with respect) “(Sayyid Abdul Aziz al-Darani, Thaharah al-Qulub wa al-Khudlu li Allam al-Ghuyub, Beirut: Darul Kutub al-‘Ilmiyyah, 2003, p. 167)
Sayyid Abdul Aziz explained the wisdom behind the secrecy of Laylat al-Qadr is that people will be moved to try, and worship every day in the month of Ramadan. In his search, if humans do not succeed in getting it, he has accumulated a lot of goodness. It could be because of his perseverance, Allah led him to get Laylat al-Qadr, so that Allah would eliminate his sleepiness, eliminate his laziness, and strengthen his istiqamah when Laylat al-Qadar came.

The comparison with a thousand months of fasting and night prayers. This shows the primacy of Laylat al-Qadr is extraordinary.
Laylat al-Qadr is a gift of Allah to the people of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. Sayyid Abdul Aziz al-Darani wrote in his book:”In a valid narration (said): (Indeed, the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam was shown by Allah ta’ala previous human ages. Laylat al-Qadr As if the age of his people became shorter, so that the achievement of his deeds will not match the charity of other people because of the long age (them.) Then Allah granted the Prophet Muhammad Lailatul Qadar, [whose value] was better than a thousand months). One thousand months (approximately equivalent to) eighty-three years and three months. ” (Sayyid Abdul Aziz al-Darani, Laylat al-Qadr Thaharah al-Qulub wa al-Khudlu li Allam al-Ghuyub, Beirut: Darul Kutub al-lIlmiyyah, 2003, p. 166)
