Aamaal e Shab e Qadar (19th, 21st and 23rd Night of Ramzan) (Ramaḍān)


The nineteenth night of Ramadan is the first of the Qadr Nights. Of course, the Qadr Night (laylat al-qadr) is unmatched in merits, since to practice acts of worship at this night is equal to the acts of one thousand nights. At this night, the affairs of the whole year are decided and the angels and the Greatest Spirit are descended by the permission of Almighty Allah so as to visit the Imam of the Age (i.e. Imam al-Mahdi), have the honor of being present before him, and provide the destinies of all the beings before him.

In the context of the Amaal of Laylat al-Qadr, we are mentioning here the General Amaals which are common to the nights of 19th, 21st & 23rd of Ramazan

It is recommended to bathe oneself at each of the Qadr Nights. According to ‘Allamah al-Majlisi, it is preferable to perform the bathing at sunset so as to be ready for the Isha’ Prayer with a bathing.

It is recommended to offer a two unit prayer reciting at each unit Surah al-Faatehah once and repeating Surah al-Tawheed seven times. After the accomplishment of the prayer, the following imploration should be repeated seventy times:

اَسْتَغْفِرُ اللّٰهَ وَاَتُوْبُ اِلَیْہِ


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

Explanation / Details::

According to a Hadith reported from the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.), Almighty Allah will forgive one who offers this prayer and will forgive his parents before he leaves his place.
