A'amal and Duas of Laylat Al-Qadr (the eve of 19 of Ramadan month)

Night of Fate (Laylatul Qadr) is the night, which is the most blessed and excellent of all nights. A prayer during this night is superior to the prayer of a thousand months. The destiny for the year is decided on this night. The Angels and Roohul Ameen (a highly dignified being) descend on this earth, with the permission of Allah (swt) to come and be honored by being in front of Imam Zaman (pbuh), and what is ordained (by Allah) for everybody is presented before the Imam.

The Common A'maals for all 3 nights are given below : -

1. Perform an Ablution (Ghusl) preferably near sunset time (wudhu also required) and Give/pre arrange for Sadqa/Charity tonight.

2. Recite two Rakats Salat, in every Rakat recite Sura-al-Hamd, and Sura Ikhlaas seven times.(for seeking protection against sinning for the seven organs ) After finishing Salat recite 70 times:

seek the forgiveness of Allah and I repent before Him.

It is reported from the Prophet (pbuh) that by the time the reciter will rise from his place Allah (swt) will have forgiven him and his parents.Try to first be really repentant for serious mistakes done, sincerely ask for forgiveness either by: (a) recalling 70 different sins OR (b) feeling remorseful for 10 sins of the 7 main organs: eyes, ears, tongue, hands, mouth, stomach + private parts OR (c) some particular sins that you may have committed repeatedly OR (d) recalling the variety of punishments of different sins and finally resolve NOT TO Repeat them in the future, then only can one realistically expect to deserve the reward the HP has promised “Whoever performs this act will surely be forgiven by the Almighty even before here rises from his place".

3. Remember your sins & seek forgiveness. Recite 100 times

seek the forgiveness of Allah, my Lord, and I repent before Him.

4. The Holy Qur'an should be opened and placed in front, then one should recite:

When opening the qur’an and praying for your needs with the intercession of the qur’an, realize that while the qur’an is a cure for spiritual illness, it only benefits the pious ones and the evil doers are deprived of its illumination. Thus increase the chances for qur’an intercession to work on your behalf by earnestly following the rulings of the qur’an.

O Allah , in the name of this Holy Book sent by Thee, whatever there be in the Book. Including Ism-e-A'azam and Asmaa-e-Husnaa and the things to be dreaded, the things that may be expected and desired,( like blessings of Heaven). treat me as one of those who are free from Hell fire

After this beg from Allah swt for your needs include spiritual improvement

4. Place the Holy Qur'an on ones head and say,

While placing the qur’an on the head. Remind yourself that true salvation can only be achieved by always keeping the rules of qur’an ahead of us to follow. The fact that we put the Qur’an on our head is a sign of respect and reverence. We beseech Allah by the thaqalayn - the speaking and the silent Qur'an. - Holy Qur'an (39:56)

O Allah! I appeal to Thee in the name of this Qur'an and the Rooh that was sent along with it, and in the name of the Momin (believer) whose praise is contained in this Book and The obligation that is on them. No one else recognizes the right and truth more than Thee

After this repeat 10 times each: As you seek intercession of the Almighty (bika ya al…) and the 14 infallibles realize that God is limitless in Mercy and the Infalliables are pure agencies for the distribution of divine mercy to all creations.
For Your sake, O Allah,
for the sake of Mohammad,
for the sake of Ali
for the sake of Fatima 
for the sake of Al-Hasan
for the sake of Al-Hussein
for the sake of Ali bin Al-Hussein 
for the sake of Mohammad Bin Ali
for the sake of Jaafar Bin Mohammad
for the sake of Moussa bin Jaafar
for the sake of Ali bin Moussa
for the sake of Mohammad Bin Ali
for the sake of Ali Bin Mohammad 
for the sake of Al-Hasan bin Ali 
for the sake of Al-Hojja

One should then pray to Almighty Allah to fulfill one’s desires.

5. Recite the Ziarat of Imam Hussain (A.S.).

While performing Ziyarah of Imam Hussain (as), remind yourself that on this night, the souls of 124,000 Prophets (peace be upon them all) visit Imam, who is aware of our inner spiritual reality and is hurt and repulsed by our record of repeated evil deeds, indifference to God’s commandments; thus, we should avoid disgracing ourselves in that great audience of Imam.
