Lailatul Qadr

Allah Ta’ala says in the Holy Quran: “ Indeed, We sent the Qur’an down during the Night of Decree. And what can make you know what is the Night of Decree?

Just as in the entire universe, miraculous systems that are created by our Lord exist also within the human body. One of these systems, the voice box or larynx is one of these superior miracles of creation. The voice box is the name given to the part of the windpipe, or trachea, that opens to the mouth, or oral cavity. Right at the entrance of the larynx are located the vocal cords. Thanks to the muscles that govern them, these cords can assume different shapes and as a result, we can make various sounds, including speech. One reason why other living beings cannot make sounds like human beings is that
