Zakat is one of the five pillars of Islam. It promotes the concept of brotherhood among Muslims as it ensures that accumulation of wealth is avoided and it is distributed among everyone so that it is in circulation and the less privileged people can also enjoy its benefits.
اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّكَ عَفُوٌّ كَرِيمٌ تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي
O Allah, indeed You are Pardoning, [Generous,] You love pardon, so pardon me
Mother of believers Aisha (R.A.) 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?’ Prophet (S.A.W.) recited this Supplication.’
This is an authentic Dua for Laylatul Qadr as the Hadith grade is Sahih. So recite this Dua for Laylatul Qadr as this Shab e Qadr Dua is recommended by our Prophet (S.A.W.). This Supplication should be regularly recited during the entire third ashra of Ramadan.
قُلْ هُوَ ٱللّٰهُ أَحَدٌ، ٱللّٰهُ ٱلصَّمَدُ، لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ، وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُۥ كُفُوًا اَحَدٌ
Say, “He is Allah, [who is] One, Allah, the Eternal Refuge, He neither begets nor is born, Nor is there to Him any equivalent.”
Prophet (S.A.W.) said that reciting Surah Al-Ikhlas (Surah No. 112) one time is equal to one third of the Quran. So reciting it three times is equal to reward of reading entire Quran.
سُبْحَانَ اللهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ (100 times)
How perfect Allah is and I praise Him. (recite one hundred times)
Allah’s Messenger (S.A.W.) said, “Whoever says this one hundred times a day, will be forgiven all his sins even if they were as much as the foam of the sea.”
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the most Merciful
The Messenger of Allah (S.A.W.) said: “There is no ablution for one who does not mention the Name of Allah (before doing it).”
