Prayer in Laylat al-Qadr (Arabic: صلاة لیلة القدر) is a mustahab prayer in Laylat al-Qadr.

How to Say the Prayer

The prayer has two rak'as. In each rak'a, the person should first recite Sura al-Hamd once, and then Sura al-Tawhid seven times. When the prayer is finished, the person should recite "astaghfir-u Allah-a wa atub-u ilayh" (Arabic: أستغفر الله و أتوب إلیه) for seven times.


In his Mafatih al-jinan, Shaykh 'Abbas Qummi cited the prayer from al-'Allama al-Majlisi. Al-Majlisi has cited a hadith about the prayer in his Zad al-ma'ad without any reference. According to this hadith, the Prophet (s) said: if a person says this prayer and recites the istighfar 70 times, before he or she changes his position, God will forgive him or her and their parents. And God will order some of His angels to write rewards for him or her, and an angel will plant a tree and build a castle for him or her in the Heaven.
