“Sprinting”, you say?

I’m in the process of listening to this lecture. Sounds good so far.
[I love blunt lectures. I wonder why?]
[Note: He says that some scholars say that the very first Laylatul Qadr was when Jibreel (alaihissalam) came to the Prophet (salallahu alaihi wasallam).
Perhaps this is the minority view because what I’ve read is that Laylatul Qadr was when the Quran was sent down from the Al-Lawh Al-Mahfoudh (the Preserved Tablet) down to the lowest heaven as Ibn Abbas (radiallahu anhu) said. And this is supported by the Arabic (it says “anzala” which means sent down at one time). Allah knows Better.]
