Tahajjud-Salat Layl
Salat Jafar Tayyar
Each night of month also has a specific Salat which is mentioned in the Daywise page

(17) It should be known that one of the observances pertaining to the nights of the month of Ramadhan is to offer a thousand rakahs of supererogatory prayer during the entire month. Eminent scholars have mentioned it in their works on law and worship.2 The traditions differ concerning the manner of its performance. According to a report3 of Ibn Abi Qurrah from Imam Muhammad al-Jawad (ca)—a version also preferred by Shaykh Mufeed in his books, Masa’il al-Ghariyyah and al-Ishrf,4 or rather by the generality of scholars—
20 rakahs are to be offered every night during the first 20 days of the month of Ramadan, every two of them followed by sal¡m. Eight of these rakcahs are performed after maghrib prayer and 12 after isha prayer. During the last 10 days, 30 rakcahs s are offered every night with 8 rakcahs after maghrib and 22 after the isha prayer.
This makes a total of 700 rakcahs.
The remaining 300 rakcahs are offered on the nights of al-Qadr; that is 100 on the 19th night, 100 on the 21st, and another 100 on the 23rd, which in all make 1000 rakcahs.
