The truth is it could be any night in Ramadan, but mostly in the last 10 days especially the 27 th or 29 th. The Prophet, sallallahu ^alayhi wa sallam, said which means: The Torah was revealed on the sixth (6th) night of Ramadan, the Injil on the thirteenth (13th) night, the Zabur on the eighteenth (18th) night, and the Quran on the 24 th night of Ramadan

14 It could be Any night in Ramadan From this hadith it is known that it is not a condition that the Night of Qadr happens on the 27th or the 29th of the month of Ramadan, although from other hadiths we know that this is most likely the case. Since the Night of Qadr might occur on any of the nights of Ramadan, the Muslims should put forth effort to pray each night of Ramadan, seeking the promised reward for the one who prays (the optional prayers) during that night. Making the extra effort in worshipping Allah especially during the last ten days of Ramadan is recommended, because in most of the cases, the Night of Qadr occurs during one of those nights.

Jibril, referred to as ar-Ruh in this verse, will be among them.
