Angels on Laylatul-Qadr (the Night of Decree: (Translated by Dawud Burbank)
*IMAAM ABOO DAAWOOD AT-TAYAALISEE-rahimahullaah (d. 204 H) reported in his Musnad (no. 2545): Imraan narrated to us: from Qataadah: from Aboo Maymooonah: from Aboo Hurairah: that Allaahs Messenger (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said, concerning Laylatul-Qadr (the Night of Decree):
<<Laylatul-Qadr is the twenty seventh or the twenty ninth night. The Angels that night upon the earth are more than the number of the pebbles>>.
*Shaikh al-Albaanee -rahimahullaah- said in as-Saheehah (no. 2205): Reported by at-Tayaalisee in his Musnad(no. 2545),and from him by Ahmad (2/519), and likewise by Ibn Khuzaymah in his Saheeh (2/223): from Imraan al-Qattaan: from Qataadah: from Aboo Maymoonah: from Aboo Hurairah marfoo`an. I say: And this is a hasan chain of narration; and al-Haafiz remained silent about it in al-Fath(4/209).
