EnUrArTr Aa

This night is called laylat dahw al-arz (the night at which the earth was spread on the water where the Holy Ka`bah is now situated). At this night the mercy of Almighty Allah is poured on people. A great reward is obtained by those who practice acts of worship at this night. On this day, it is recommended to offer, in the morning, a prayer consisting of two units, reciting in the each unit Surah al-Fatihah once and repeating Surah al-Shams five times.
After accomplishment, the following is said:

لاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِٱللَّهِ ٱلْعَليِّ ٱلْعَظِيمِ

There is no power and no strength except with Allah, the Most High, the All-great.

Then, one may pray Almighty Allah for granting his needs and then say the following prayer

يَا مُقِيلَ ٱلْعَثَرَاتِ اقِلْنِي عَثْرَتِي
O He Who overlooks slips, (please) overlook my slip.
يَا مُجِيبَ ٱلدَّعَوَاتِ اجِبْ دَعْوَتِي
O He Who responds to prayers, (please) respond to my prayer.
يَا سَامِعَ ٱلاصْوَاتِ ٱسْمَعْ صَوْتِي
O He Who hears all sounds, (please) listen to mine,
وَٱرْحَمْنِي وَتَجَاوَزْ عَنْ سَيِّئَاتِي وَمَا عِنْدِي
have mercy on me, and excuse my wrongdoings and whatever I have committed.
يَا ذَا ٱلْجَلاَلِ وَٱلإِكْرَامِ
O Lord of majesty and honor!
In Misbah al-Mutahajjid, Shaykh al Tusi has mentioned that it is recommended to say the following prayer as well.
اَللَّهُمَّ دَاحِيَ ٱلْكَعْبَةِ
O Allah Who spread the Ka`bah,
وَفَالِقَ ٱلْحَبَّةِ
split the kernel,
وَصَارِفَ ٱللَّزْبَةِ

وَكَاشِفَ كُلِّ كُرْبَة

اسْالُكَ فِي هٰذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ مِنْ ايَّامِكَ
I beseech You on this day, which is one of Your days
ٱلَّتِي اعْظَمْتَ حَقَّهَا

وَإِلَيْكَ ذَرِيعَةً
and as means to approaching to You;
وَبِرَحْمَتِكَ ٱلْوَسيعَةِ
and [I beseech You] in the name of Your ample mercy
انْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ

Peace and Allah’s mercy and blessings be upon him.
