Eve of Destiny (Laylatul Qadr) is the night, which is the most blessed and excellent of all nights. A prayer during this night is superior to the prayer of a thousand months. The destiny for the year is decided on this night. The Angels and Roohul Ameen (a highly dignified Angel) descend on this earth, with the permission of Allah (swt) & call on the Imam of the time, and what is ordained (by Allah) for everybody is presented before the Imam.

1. Take a Ghusl preferably near sunset time (wudhu also required) and Give/pre arrange for Sadqa/Charity tonight.

2. Recite two Rakats Salat, in every Rakat recite Sura-al-Hamd, and Sura Ikhlaas seven times.(for seeking protection against sinning for the seven organs ) After finishing Salat recite 70 times:

I seek the forgiveness of Allah and I repent before Him.

astaghfiru allaha wa atubu ilayhi

أَسْتَغْفِرُ اللّهَ وَأَتُوبُ إلَيْهِ.

It is reported from the Prophet (pbuh) that by the time the reciter will rise from his place Allah (swt) will have forgiven him and his parents. Try to first be really repentant for serious mistakes done, sincerely ask for forgiveness either by: (a) recalling 70 different sins OR (b) feeling remorseful for 10 sins of the 7 main organs: eyes, ears, tongue, hands, mouth, stomach + private parts OR (c) some particular sins that you may have committed repeatedly OR (d) recalling the variety of punishments of different sins and finally resolve NOT TO Repeat them in the future, then only can one realistically expect to deserve the reward the Holy Prophet has promised “Whoever performs this act will surely be forgiven by the Almighty even before here rises from his place".

3. Remember your sins & seek forgiveness. Recite 100 times

I seek the forgiveness of Allah, my Lord, and I repent before Him.

astaghfiru allaha rabby wa atubu ilayhi

أَسْتَغْفِرُ اللّهَ رَبِّي وَأَتُوبُ إلَيْهِ.

Recite other Duas related to Repentance:-Munajat e Taebeen , Dua Tauba  & Dua Kumayl .

4. The Holy Qur'an should be opened and placed in front, then one should recite as under:

When opening the qur’an and praying for your needs with the intercession of the qur’an, realize that while the qur’an is a cure for spiritual illness, it only benefits the pious ones and the evil doers are deprived of its illumination. Thus increase the chances for qur’an intercession to work on your behalf by earnestly following the rulings of the qur’an. 

O Allah , in the name of this Holy Book sent by Thee, whatever there be in the Book. Including Ism-e-A'azam and Asmaa-e-Husnaa and the things to be dreaded, the things that may be expected and desired,( like blessings of Heaven). treat me as one of those who are free from Hell fire

Alaahumma inni asaloka be kitaabekal munzale Wa maa feeh, wa feehismokal akbaro wa asmaakal husnaa, wa maa yokhaafo Wa yurjaa an taj-alani min otaqaaeka minan-Naar",



Place the Holy Qur'an on ones head and say,
While placing the qur’an on the head. Remind yourself that true salvation can only be achieved by always keeping the rules of qur’an ahead of us to follow. The fact that we put the Qur’an on our head is a sign of respect and reverence. We beseech Allah by the thaqalayn - the speaking and the silent Qur'an. - Holy Qur'an (39:56) Pray for Aql/Intelligence to be Kamil ( complete) ,it is Kashe (submits) to quran & acquires Noor ( light) from it.

O Allah! I appeal to Thee in the name of this Qur'an and the Rooh that was sent along with it, and in the name of the Momin (believer) whose praise is contained in this Book and The obligation that is on them. No one else recognizes the right and truth more than Thee

Allaahumma be haqqe haazal Qur'an we be haqqe man arsaltahoo beh, Wa be haqqe kulle momenin madahtahoo feeh, we be haqqeka alaihim fa-laa ahada a'arafo be haqqeka mink"



After this repeat 10 times each: As you seek intercession of the Almighty (bika ya al…) and the 14 Infallibles( Ahlulbayt as) realize that God is limitless in  Mercy and the Infalliables are pure agencies for the distribution of divine mercy to all creations.

بِكَ يَا اللّهُ،

bika yaallahu

For Your sake, O Allah,



for the sake of Muhammad,



for the sake of `Ali,



for the sake of Fatimah,



for the sake of Hasan,



for the sake of Husayn,

بِعَلِيّ بْنِ الحُسَيْنِ،

bi-`aliyyi bni alhusayni

for the sake of `Ali ibn Husayn,

بِمُحَمّدِ بْنِ عَلِيّ،

bi-muhammadi bni `aliyyin

for the sake of Muhammad ibn `Ali,

بِجَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمّدٍ،

bi-ja`fari bni muhammadin

for the sake of Ja`far ibn Muhammad,

بِمُوسَى بْنِ جَعْفَرٍ،

bi-musa bni ja`farin

for the sake of Musa ibn Jafar,

بِعَلِيّ بْنِ مُوسَى،

bi-`aliyyi bni musa

for the sake of `Ali ibn Musa,

بِمُحَمّدِ بْنِ عَلِيّ،

bi-muhammadi bni `aliyyin

for the sake of Muhammad ibn `Ali,

بِعَلِيّ بْنِ مُحَمّدٍ،

bi-`aliyyi bni muhammadin

for the sake of `Ali ibn Muhammad,

بِالحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيّ،

bilhasani bni `aliyyin

for the sake of Hasan ibn `Ali,



for the sake of al-Hujjah.

     One should then pray to Almighty Allah to fulfill one’s desires.

According to Hadith, during Lailat-e-Qadr an angel proclaims from the Arsh (throne) on the Seventh sky that Allah has forgiven who have visited the grave of Imam Hussain (as).  While performing Ziyarah of Imam Hussain (as), remind yourself that on this night, the souls of 124,000 Prophets (peace be upon them all) visit Imam, who is aware of our inner spiritual reality and is hurt and repulsed by our record of repeated evil deeds, indifference to God’s commandments; thus, we should avoid disgracing ourselves in that great audience of Imam.

Alternate Translation :I have passed the evening as a very humble servant of Thee. I have no control over the gains and losses for my person. I cannot remove any evil from myself. I depose against my conscience. I admit my weakness and inability of managing my affairs. Bestow Thy blessings on Mohammad (saw.) and his Family. Whatever Thou hast given me or promised, fulfill that. Verily! I am Thy humble, weak and destitute servant. O Allah! Let me not forget the blessings that Thou hast bestowed on me, and let me not be forgetful about Thy kindness. Do not deny me Thy acceptance though it may be delayed, may it pertain to sorrow or happiness, and may it be connected with peace and tranquility or hardship and vicissitudes or pertaining to blessings. Thou hears and accepts invocations in every condition.


In surah AL Qadr Allah (swt) clearly states: "Surely We revealed it (the Holy Qur'an) on the grand night. And what will make you comprehend what the grand night. The grand night is better than a thousand months. The angels and Gabriel descend in it by the permission of their Lord for every affair, Peace! It is till the break of the morning." (97:1-5)

Allah (swt) is inviting all the believers for a Divine feast; the invitation which has been brought by the messengers. Allah (swt) is the host, his most favorite angels are the servants and the believers are the guests. The table is spread with Divine blessings containing all sorts of rewards and favors. Though the eyes cannot see them nor the ears hear them not the human hearts imagine them, yet the bounties are all kept in readiness to be awarded to the guests in accordance to her actions.

On a final note, our destiny to large extent can be changed in this very night and much depends on us, how we decide to utilize both the night and the day of Qadr and for that matter each single moment of this blessed month of Ramadhan.

Let us therefore pray that we may be granted the Tawfiq to be able to do the A’maals of Laylatul Qadr in its correct essence, that we may be granted the Maghferah and that we may earn the Pleasure of Allah (swt) in such a manner that our lives take a positive turn in a manner that we may earn the salvation for both this world and the Hereafter. Ameen

A humble request that we remember each other in our prayers and especially those we do not forget the oppressed , the suffering & our Deceased.
