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.
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.

Ghusl - Prescribed Bath

Perform Ghusl (prescribed bath) preferably near sunset time (wudhu also required) and arrange for Sadqa/Charity tonight.

Charity

Give Sadaqa - Charity - Alms tonight

Salaat (Namaaz)

Offer two Rakats Salat, in every Rakat recite Sura-al-Hamd, and Sura Ikhlaas seven times.
After Completion of salaat - repeat 70 Times:
أَسْتَغْفِرُ اللّهَ وَأَتُوبُ إلَيْهِ.
astaghfiru allaha wa atubu ilayhi
I seek the forgiveness of Allah and I repent before Him.

Seek forgiveness

Allama Majlisi has stated that the best prayer during these nights is to seek forgiveness and seek ones wishes for this world and the hereafter and recite as much salwaat as possible. The Holy Prophet (pbuh) was asked what should be sought from Allah (swt) on Laylatul Qadr and he replied, "Health".
Recite 100 times
أَسْتَغْفِرُ اللّهَ رَبِّي وَأَتُوبُ إلَيْهِ.
astaghfiru allaha rabby wa atubu ilayhi
I seek the forgiveness of Allah, my Lord, and I repent before Him

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
allahumma inni amsaytu laka `abdan dakhiran
I have passed the evening as a very humble servant of Yours
لاَ امْلِكُ لِنَفْسِي نَفْعاً وَلاَ ضَرّاً

I have no control over the gains and losses for my self
وَلاَ اصْرِفُ عَنْهَا سُوءً

and I cannot drive back any evil from myself.
اشْهَدُ بِذٰلِكَ عَلَىٰ نَفْسِي
ashhadu bidhalika `ala nafsi
I testify to this against myself.
وَاعْتَرِفُ لَكَ بِضَعْفِ قُوَّتِي وَقِلَّةِ حِيلَتِي
wa a`tarifu laka bida`fi quwwati wa qillati hilati
To You do I confess of my powerlessness and my feebleness.
فَصَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
fasalli `ala muhammadin wa ali muhammadin
So, (please do) send blessings to Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad
وَانْجِزْ لِي مَا وَعَدْتَنِي
wa anjiz li ma wa`adtani
and fulfill what You have promised me,
وَجَمِيعَ ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَٱلْمُؤْمِنَاتِ
wa jami`a almu'minina walmu'minati
as well as all the believing men and women;
مِنَ ٱلْمَغْفِرَةِ فِي هٰذِهِ ٱللَّيْلَةِ
min almaghfirati fi hadhihi allaylati
that is Your forgiveness at this night,
وَاتْمِمْ عَلَيَّ مَا آتَيْتَنِي
wa atmim `alayya ma ataytani
and accomplish that which You have conferred upon me,
فَإِنِّي عَبْدُكَ ٱلْمِسكِينُ ٱلْمُسْتَكِينُ

do not make me inadvertent to Your favors to me as regards that which You have given me,
وَلاَ آيِساً مِنْ إِجَابَتِكَ وَإِنْ اَبْطَاتْ عَنِّي
wa la ayisan min ijabatika wa in abta'at `anni
do not make me despair of Your responding to me, even if such response is postponed,
فِي سَرَّاءَ اوْ ضَرَّاءَ

One should open the Holy Qur'an and hold it in front of his face. Then recite:
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ بِكِتَابِكَ الْمُنْزَلِ وَ مَا فِيهِ
Alaahumma inni asaloka be kitaabekal munzale Wa maa feeh,
O Allah I beseech Thee in the name of Thy revealed Book and that which is in it,
وَ فِيهِ اسْمُكَ الْأَكْبَرُ وَ أَسْمَاؤُكَ الْحُسْنَى وَ مَا يُخَافُ وَ يُرْجَى أَنْ تَجْعَلَنِي مِنْ عُتَقَائِكَ مِنَ النَّارِ
wa feehismokal akbaro wa asmaakal husnaa, wa maa yokhaafo Wa yurjaa an taj-alani min otaqaaeka minan-Naar
and Thy Great Name and Thy (Other) beautiful names are in it, and in it there is that which warns and gives hope to include me among those who have been set free from the Hellfire.
After that one should pray to God for any needs of his.

Take the Holy Qur'an and hold it on your head and recite:
اللّهُمّ بِحَقّ هذَا القُرْآنِ
Allaahumma be haqqe haazal Qur'an
O Allah: for the sake of this (Holy) Qur'an,
وَبِحَقّ مَنْ أَرْسَلْتَهُ بِهِ
we be haqqe man arsaltahoo beh
and for the sake of that person through whom You sent it,
وَبِحَقّ كُلّ مُؤْمِنٍ مَدَحْتَهُ فِيهِ
Wa be haqqe kulle momenin madahtahoo feeh
and for the sake of those believers who have been praised therein,
وَبِحَقّكَ عَلَيْهِمْ
we be haqqeka alaihim
and in the name of Your obligation to them,

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..
