Dua to say when anticipating the Night of Power
Expand
اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّكَ عُفُوٌّ تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي


Translation
Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her), said: I asked the Messenger of Allah: O Messenger of Allah, if I know what night is the night of Qadr, what should I say during it? He said, Say:

O Allah, You are pardoning and You love to pardon, so pardon me.


Note:
Laylat Al-Qadr or the Night of Power is anticipated during the last ten nights of Ramadan (20th-30th), more likely during the odd nights (21th, 23th, 25th, 27th, 29th) and even more likely during the 27th night. For this reason, its recommended to keep worship throughout the last 10 ten nights just as the prophet (may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) and his companions did.
