Du‘â’ du 17e jour du mois béni de Ramadan

اَللّـهُمَّ ارْزُقْني فيهِ فَضْلَ لَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ،

O Allah, on this day, bestow on me the blessings of Laylatul Qadr,

وَصَيِّرْ أموري فيهِ مِنَ الْعُسْرِ إلى الْيُسْرِ،

change my affairs from (being) difficult to (being) easy,

وَاقْبَلْ مَعاذيري،

accept my apologies,

وَحُطَّ عَنّيِ الذَّنْبَ وَالْوِزْرَ،

and decrease for me [my] sins and burdens,

يا رَؤوفاً بِعِبادِهِ الصّالِحينَ .

O the Compassionate with His righteous servants.

* The Significance and Blessedness of the Night of Qadr 

The holy Quran was first revealed to the heart of the Prophet (ṣ) in the month of Ramadan and in the Night of Qadr. The Night of Qadr is therefore a greatly blessed night when the human world was transformed into a completely new one with the revelation of the Quran.

When referring to the Night of Qadr, the holy Quran states that “it is better than a thousand months” which means that keeping prayer vigil and worshipping Allah on this night is far more valuable and effective than in any other time during the year.

The Night of Qadr is a clear manifestation of Allah’s boundless kindness and compassion toward the people; it shows that Allah uses every chance and every opportunity to forgive His servants.

Imam al-Bāqir (‘a) has been quoted as saying in this regard: “Anyone who keeps vigil to pray on the Night of Qadr, all of their sins will be forgiven even if they are a lot in number”.

The holy Quran and the Islamic traditions all indicate that the angels descend to the earth on this special night with the mission of delivering Allah’s ordinances in the earth for the following year.

It should be noted that these ordainments concern the destiny of all the people, but they are not haphazard; Allah ordains things for people based on their merits, worthiness, and their past deeds. The holy Quran states the following in this regard:

تَنَزَّلُ الْمَلائِكَةُ وَ الرُّوحُ فيها بِاذْنِ رَبِّهِم مَنْ كُلِّ امْر

On it descend the angels and the Spirit, by their Lord’s Leave, with every ordainment.
