Laylatul Qadr or Shab e Qadr is an odd night in the last ten of Ramadan. That night’s declaration of dignity states that it is better than a thousand months. Whoever performs an act on this night will be considered as an act of a thousand months.
That is why the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to spend the last ten days of Ramadaan in the mosque for worship. So that Laylatul Qadr is not deprived in any way.
Which prayer will you read more and more in Laylatul Qadr? What did the Prophet (SAW) say about this? It has been narrated in the hadith-
Narrated Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her): She said: I once asked the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, O Messenger of Allah! Tell me, if I know the night of Laylatul Qadr, what will I recite?
The Messenger of Allah said, You will say:
اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّكَ عَفُوٌّ كَرِيمٌ تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي
Pronunciation: “Allahumma Innaka Afuwun; Tuhibbul Afwa; Fa fu Annee.”
Meaning: O Allah! You are forgiving; You love to forgive; So forgive me. (Musnad Ahmad, Ibn Majah, Tirmidhi, Mishkat)
