When the last ten nights of Ramadan are upon you, what’s the best du’a you can make? Aisha (rA) asked the Prophet ﷺ the same question, and he ﷺ taught the oft-repeated du’a for Laylatul Qadr. But what are the wisdoms behind this du’a and when exactly do you say it? In the final episode of Ramadan Du’as on Repeat, Dr. Tahir ends the series with the words we were taught to say in the best of nights.

Du’a to say for laylatul qadr

الَّلهُمَّ إِنَّكَ عَفُوٌ تُحِبُّ العَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنّا

Allahumma innaka ‘afuwwun tuhibbul-‘afwa fa-a‘fu ‘anna

O Allah, indeed You are all-Pardoning, You love pardoning, so pardon us.
