Abstract

This article the author discusses the meaning of lailatul qadar in Q.S al-Qadr. The night of Lalaitul Qadar
is a better night than a thousand months. Most Muslims, when the month of Ramadan comes, compete to get
the night of Lailatul Qadar without knowing exactly what it means. This study aims to reveal the content of
meaning contained in lailatul qadar by using Roland Barthes's semiotic approach. In Roland Brthes'
semiotics, there are two meaning enhancements, namely denotation and connotation. The enhancement of these
two meanings aims to get the meaning behind the original meaning, so that it will produce a mythology that
will provide a broader meaning. The results of this study conclude: first, in the meaning of the denotation of
the word lailatul qadar means a better night than a thousand months. Second, on the connotative meaning,
the word lailatul qadar can be interpreted as a night where Allah determines human life, while the resulting
mythological meaning is that the night of lailatul qadar is a night that is better than a thousand months on
that night Allah sent down the Qur'an to the sky of the world of bait al-izzah as a whole until that night
becomes a night full of blessings. Broad interpretations of the Koran need to be developed to add to the treasures
of Islamic scholarship to show the dynamics of the Koran which will always be relevant in sharing scientific
developments.
