Month of Ramadan

Laylatul Qadr (19, 21, 23 Ramadan)

Eve of Destiny (Laylatul Qadr) is the night, which is the most blessed and excellent of all nights.

Amaal of the Holy Quraan

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. 

اَللّٰهُمَّ اِنِّي اَسْاَلُكَ بِكِتَابِكَ الْمُنْزَلِ وَمَا فِيْهِ وَفِيْهِ اسْمُكَ الْاَكْبَرُ وَاَسْمَآؤُكَ الْحُسْنٰى، وَمَا يُخَافُ وَيُرْجٰى اَنْ تَجْعَلَنِيْ مِنْ عُتَقَآئِكَ مِنَ النَّارِ۔

"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"

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

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.

اَللّٰهُمَّ بِحَقِّ هَذَا الْقُرْاٰنِ، وَبِحَقِّ مَنْ اَرْسَلْتَهُ بِهِ، وَبِحَقِّ كُلِّ مُؤْمِنٍ مَدَحْتَهُ فِيْهِ، وَبِحَقِّكَ عَلَيْهِمْ، فَلَا اَحَدَ اَعْرَفُ بِحَقِّكَ مِنْكَ

"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"

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

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. After completion pray to Almighty Allah to fulfill your desires.

Ziyarat of Imam Hussain (as)
Recite the Ziarat of Imam Hussain (A.S.). 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. Also, associate the themes in the ZIYARAH of: - Firm bond of love and obedience of God (SALAT). -Economic betterment of community (ZAKAT).  -Overall mobilization of forces towards virtue (AMR BIL MA`RUF).  -Overall cleansing of evil from society.  -All-out war in all spheres of life to promote truth (JIHAD). -Tremendous endurance of all ensuing difficulties (SABR). -Complete distancing (LA`NAH) from all forms of injustice (DHULM) with destiny- shaping opportunity of this night and resolve to become on active player in improving the future in preparation for the REAPPEARANCE OF AL-MAHDI..

Al-Kaf`amiy has narrated that Imam Zayn al-Abideen (a.s) used to say this supplication very frequently at the Qadr  nights while sitting, standing, in rukuu', and prostrating:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي امْسَيْتُ لَكَ عَبْداً دَاخِراً

لاَ امْلِكُ لِنَفْسِي نَفْعاً وَلاَ ضَرّاً

وَلاَ اصْرِفُ عَنْهَا سُوءً

اشْهَدُ بِذٰلِكَ عَلَىٰ نَفْسِي

وَاعْتَرِفُ لَكَ بِضَعْفِ قُوَّتِي وَقِلَّةِ حِيلَتِي

فَصَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ

وَانْجِزْ لِي مَا وَعَدْتَنِي

وَجَمِيعَ ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَٱلْمُؤْمِنَاتِ

مِنَ ٱلْمَغْفِرَةِ فِي هٰذِهِ ٱللَّيْلَةِ

وَاتْمِمْ عَلَيَّ مَا آتَيْتَنِي

فَإِنِّي عَبْدُكَ ٱلْمِسكِينُ ٱلْمُسْتَكِينُ

ٱلضَّعِيفُ ٱلْفَقِيرُ ٱلْمَهِينُ

اللَّهُمَّ لاَ تَجْعَلْنِي نَاسِياً لِذِكْرِكَ فِيمَا اوْلَيْتَنِي

وَلاَ غَافِلاً لإِحْسَانِكَ فِيمَا اعْطَيْتَنِي

وَلاَ آيِساً مِنْ إِجَابَتِكَ وَإِنْ اَبْطَاتْ عَنِّي

فِي سَرَّاءَ اوْ ضَرَّاءَ

اوْ شِدَّةٍ اوْ رَخَاءٍ

اوْ عَافِيَةٍ اوْ بَلاءٍ

اوْ بُؤْسٍ اوْ نَعْمَاءَ

إِنَّكَ سَمِيعُ ٱلدُّعَاءِ

I have passed the evening as a very humble servant of Yours

I have no control over the gains and losses for my self

and I cannot drive back any evil from myself.

I testify to this against myself.

To You do I confess of my powerlessness and my feebleness.

So, (please do) send blessings to Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad

and fulfill what You have promised me,

as well as all the believing men and women;

that is Your forgiveness at this night,

and accomplish that which You have conferred upon me,

for I am Your slave—the poor, the humble,

the weak, the needy, and the humiliated.

O Allah, (please) do not make me negligent of Your mention as regards that which You have bestowed upon me,

do not make me inadvertent to Your favors to me as regards that which You have given me,

do not make me despair of Your responding to me, even if such response is postponed,

whether I be in prosperity, adversity,

hardship, comfort,

wellbeing, ordeal,

misery, or bliss.

Verily, You are the Hearer of prayers.
