It is narrated by Sayyiduna Aisha (radi Allahu anha) that the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: “Seek the Night of Power in the odd nights of the last ten days of Ramadan”. This Hadith shows that the Night of Power falls on one of the odd nights of last ten days that is 21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th and 29 th night. But we have some other indications from the companions of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) and Muhaddhiseen, that this should be the night of 27th of Ramadaan.Due to this it seems a general consensus among the Islamic Scholars towards the 27th night. However, it is better to keep vigil during all odd nights of last ten days to get the blessings of this precious night. The Du�a to be read during this night is “Allahumma innaka afuwuh tuhibbul afwa fa�fu anni”. This Du�as was taught to Sayyiduna Ayesha Siddiqa (radi Allahu anha) by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) himself.
