This night falls within the last ten odd nights of Ramadan, and although the exact date is unknown. Qadar should be searched in the last ten nights of Ramadan that are 21, 23, 25, 27, 29 nights.

Search for the Night of Qadr(Decree) in the odd nights of the last ten(10) days of Ramadan.

Sahi Bukhari 2017
Surah qadr,  last ten nights of Ramadan

“We have surely revealed this in the “Night of Decree”(Qadr). And what you know what is the Night of Power(Qadr)? The Night of Decree is better than a thousand(1000) months. The Spirit and the angels descend therein by permission of their Lord for every matter. Peace is until the appearance of dawn.

Quran surah al qadar, 97

Anas ibn Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah(ﷺ) said when the month of Ramadan started, “

Surely, this month(Ramadan) has presented itself to you. There is a night(night of decree) within it that is better than a thousand(1000) months. Whoever is deprived of it has been deprived of all goodness. No one is deprived of its goodness except that he is truly deprived.

Ibn Mājah 1644

Allah is merciful on His servant beyond imaginations. He gives us this night to multiply our good deeds in the book of deeds. It is a golden time to wipe out our sins and seek forgiveness from Allah. So, we must keep the focus on prayers and good deeds. Never miss a chance for any good deed, no matter it is small or big.

In Ramadan blessings of Allah are on peak. We must practice extra prayers with each prayer. we must perform travi prayer. Performing Tahajud at night is comes with great blessing during the whole month of Ramadan. But especially on these odd nights, we perform extra rakahs and prayers to multiply virtues and wipe out sins.

Do I’tikaf

It sunnah of the Prophet(ﷺ) to practice I’tikaf in the last Ashra(ten days) of Ramadan. I’tikaf means to be in isolation in a Mosque or at home to dedicate time only to the worship of Allah. Those in I’tikaf spend all this time performing various forms of zikr, performing extra Salat, and reciting Quran. They do not go outside the mosque except in case of emergencies. Itikaf for a shorter period, like one night, a day or a couple of days is encouraged as well.

Hazrat Aisha narrated that:

Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) used to practise I`tikaf in the last ten nights of Ramadan and used to say, “Look for the Night of Qadr in the last ten nights of the month of Ramadan.”
