In a Hadeeth on the authority of ‘Aa’ishah, may Allah be pleased with her, she said, “I said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, if I know which night is the Night of Al-Qadr, what should I say on that night?’ He said: ‘Say: ‘Allahumma innaka ‘afuwwun kareemun tuhibbu al-‘afwa fa’fu ‘anni (O Allah, You are Ever Pardoning and Generous and You love pardoning, so pardon me!)’’ [At-Tirmithi: Hasan Saheeh]

In another narration, she said, “I said, ‘O Messenger ofAllah, if I witness the Night of Al-Qadr, what should I say?’ Hesaid: ‘Say: ‘O Allah, You are Ever Pardoning and Generous, and you love pardoning, so pardon me.’’ [Ibn Maajah]

Second: The keenness of the Companions, may Allah be pleased with them, to ask about matters that benefit them.
Third: The virtue of supplication on the Night of Al-Qadr and the fact that it is most likely to be answered.
Fourth: Arecommendation to supplicate to Allah by the succinct words of the Prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ), and not to burden oneself with supplications that are rhyming or those whose meanings are not known.
Fifth: The supplication mentioned in the Hadeeth is one of the most beneficial and all-inclusive supplications because it combines between the good of the worldly life and the Hereafter.

If He pardons them in the Hereafter, He will save them from Hell and admit them to Paradise.
