The Twenty-Third Night of Ramadhan month- Specific A'amal

The Twenty-Third Night of Ramadhan month- Specific A'amal

The Night of Qadr is the best night among the nights of the whole year. The "A'maal" (religious performances) of this night are better than the A'maal of 1000 months. In this night the divine Annual Decree is passed. The Angels and Roohul Ameen (A highly dignified Angel) descend on this earth, in that night. These call on the Imam of the time, and what is ordained (by Allah) for everybody is presented before the Imam.

The twenty-third night of Ramadhan, the last of the Qadr Nights, is more meritorious than the two previous ones, namely the nineteenth and the twenty-first. Many narrations confirm that it is the Qadr Night at which all affairs are decided. Apart from the General a'amal at the three Qadr Nights, there are other specific a'amal for the 23rd night: It is important to keep awake the entire night

First: It is recommended to recite Surahs of al-`Ankabut (No. 29) and al-Rum (No. 30). Imam al-Sadiq (a.s) is reported to have said, “Anyone who recites these two Surahs at this night will be included with the people of Paradise.”

Second: It is recommended to recite Surah of al-Dukhan (No. 44).

Third: It is recommended to repeat Surah of al-Qadr Thousand times.

Fourth: Recite the following famous supplication for the Imam of our time as many times as possible at this night:Allahhumma Kun le Valliek

Fifth: It is recommended to say the following supplication:

And He Who is evident though He is intrinsic; wia zahiran fi butunihi ويَا ظَاهِراً فِي بُطُونِهِ،
O He Who is intrinsic that is not missed wa ya batinan laysa yakhfa وَيَا بَاطِناً لَيْسَ يَخْفَى،
And He Who is evident but He cannot be seen; wa ya zahiran laysa yura وَيَا ظَاهِراً لَيْسَ يُرَى،
O He Who is described, but neither any other described thing nor can any boundary attain His Being; ya mawsufan la yablughu bikaynunatihi mawsufun wa la hadd mahdudun يَا مَوْصُوفاً لا يَبْلُغُ بِكَيْنُونَتِهِ مَوْصُوفٌ وَلا حَدّ مَحْدُودٌ،
O He Who is absent but not lost, wa ya gha’iban ghayra mafqudin وَيَا غَائِباً غَيْرَ مَفْقُودٍ،

And His place cannot be identified by asking, ‘Where is He?’ or ‘What is His place? wa la yu´ayyanu bi-ainin wa la bihaythin وَلا يُؤَيّنُ بِأَيْنٍ وَلا بِحَيْثٍ،
You are verily the light of all lights and the Lord of all lords. anta nuru alnnuri wa rabb alarbabi أَنْتَ نُورُ النّورِ وَرَبّ الأَرْبَابِ،
You have comprehended all things. ahatta bijami`i ala’umuri أَحَطْتَ بِجَمِيعِ الأُمورِ،

And He is the All-hearing, the All-seeing. wa huwa alssami`u albasiru! وَهُوَ السّميعُ البَصيرُ!
Glory be to Him Who is in this state and nothing else can be ever in his state. subhana man huwa hkadha wa la hakadhaghayruh! سبحَانَ مَنْ هُوَ هكَذَا وَلا هَكَذَا غَيْرُه!

Then, one may pray for his needs.

Eighth: It is recommended to do a new ghusl (bathing), other than the first one, at the last hours of night. To spend the whole night with acts of worship, to visit the holy tomb of Imam al-Husayn (a.s), and to offer the one hundred Rak`ah prayer at this nigh

In ‘Tahdhib al-Ahkam’, Shaykh al-Tusiy has narrated that Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq (a.s) instructed Abu-Basir to offer at the night that is expected to be the Qadr Night a prayer of one hunded Rak`ah reciting at each Rak`ah Surah of al-Fatihah once and repeating Surah of al-Tawhid ten times.

“If I fail to do all the movements of this prayer, what will I do?” asked Abu-Basir. “You may then offer it while sitting,” said Imam al-Sadiq (a.s). “What if I, too, fail to offer it while sitting?” asked Abu-Basir. “You may then offer it while lying on your bed,” said Imam al-Sadiq (a.s).

`Allamah al-Majlisi has confirmed that one should recite as much amount as possible from the Holy Qur'an at this night and should also pray with the supplications of the al-Sahifah al-Kamilah al-Sajjadiyyah in general and the supplications of Makarim al-Akhlaq and  al-Tawbah in particular.

Ninth : Another Du'a for the 23rd night: -

يا رَبَّ لَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ وَجاعِلَها خَيْراً مِنْ اَلْفِ شَهْرٍ وَرَبَّ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهارِ وَالْجِبالِ وَالْبِحارِ وَالظُّلَمِ والاْنْوارِ وَالاْرْضِ وَالسَّماَّءِ يا بارِئُ يا مُصَوِّرُ يا حَنّانُ يا مَنّانُ يا اَللّهُ يا رَحْمنُ يا اَللّهُ يا قَيُّومُ يا اَللّهُ يا بَديعُ يا اَللّهُ يا اَللّهُ يا اَللّهُ لَكَ الاْسْماَّءُ الْحُسْنى وَالاْمْثالُ الْعُلْيا وَالْكِبْرِياَّءُ وَالاْ لاَّءُ اَسْئَلُكَ اَنْ تُصَلِّىَ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ الِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَاَنْ تَجْعَلَ اسْمى فى هذِهِ اللَّيْلَةِ فِى السُّعَداَّءِ وَرُوحى مَعَ الشُّهَداَّءِ وَاِحْسانى فى عِلِّيّينَ وَاِسائَتى مَغْفُورَةً وَاَنْ تَهَبَ لى يَقيناً تُباشِرُ بِهِ قَلْبى وَايماناً يُذهِبُالشَّكَّ عَنّى وَتُرْضِيَنى بِما قَسَمْتَ لى وَ اتِنا فِى الدُّنْيا حَسَنَةً وَفِى الاْخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنا عَذابَ النّارِ الْحَريقِ وَارْزُقْنى فيها ذِكْرَكَ وَشُكْرَكَ وَالرَّغْبَةَ اِلَيْكَ وَالاِْنابَةَ والتَّوبَةَ والتَّوْفيقَ لِما وَفَّقْتَ لَهُ مُحَمَّداً وَ الَ مُحَمَّدٍ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّلامُ

O Lord of Lailatul Qadr! (Night of Destiny!) Who has made it better than 1000 months! O the Lord of the day and the night and the mountains and oceans, the Lord of light and darkness! O the Lord of the earth and the skies! O the Creator! O the Designer! O Kind! O One Who favours! O Allah Who maintains everything! O Allah! O the Kindest! O Allah! O the Creator of new things! O Allah! O Allah! O Allah! The best names are for Thee alone. Thou hast control over all virtues. I ask Thee to send blessings on Muhammad (S.A.W.) and his Aal (A.S.). Write my name, in this Night of Qadr, among the names of the fortunate. Let my soul keep the company of the martyrs. Let my good deeds be reckoned with "Illiyeen" (those exalted). Forgive my sins. Bestow on me such belief that Thou may be nearest to my heart. Give me such understanding that all the doubts may be removed. Let me be contended over that which has been ordained for me: Let me have goodness and virtues in this world and the next. Save me from the glowing fire of Hell. Encourage me towards Tine remembrance with pleasure and to be penitent. Give me all those virtues that Thou hast given to Muhammad (S.A.W.) and Aal-e-Muhammad (AS).
