Based on the words of the Messenger of Allah (Allah's prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household) who is quoted saying that "whoever spends Lailatul-Qadr adoring his Lord will have all his sins forgiven even if they had numbered as many as the stars in the heavens, the weight of the mountains, or the measures of the seas." and from the vicinity of the holy shrines of Imam Al-Hussayn and his brother Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon both of them), the believers have commemorated the last night of the blessed nights of Destiny, the third night, in an unrivalled atmosphere of spirituality, supplicating the Almighty God with tearful eyes, humbled hearts and raised palms to accept the good deeds and to bestow security and safety on Iraq and Iraqis. According to the narration: "The twenty-third night of the month of Ramadhan is the one when every weighty matter is decided, when trials, tribulations, deaths, and means of sustenance and other matters are determined, and so will whatever Allah decrees to take place for the entire next year; so, congratulations to anyone who remains awake during it bowing, prostrating, contemplating upon his sins, weeping on their account, for if you do all of that, God willing, you will never be disappointed."
The holy shrines of Imam Al-Hussayn and Al-Abbas and the square between the two holy shrines, were packed with the faithful coming from inside and outside the holy city of Karbala to commemorate this blessed night, staring by reading the Dua Iftitah, Dua Jawshan Al-Kabeer, Dua Raf' Al-Masahif, as well as some chapters of the Holy Quran and performing the prayers and the other special acts of this night.
It is mentioned in the book of "Islam pillars" that the Messenger of Allah (Allah's prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household) used to dedicate the last ten days of the month of Ramadan only to worship, and used to wake his family on the twenty- third night, by spraying water on the faces of those who feel sleepy. And so did Lady Fatima Az-Zahra (peace be upon her) by not letting her family to sleep on that night, and ordering them to sleep during the day and not offering copious meal so they do not feel sleepy during the night, saying: He is deprived, he who is deprived from its good."
Allama Majlisi has wrote in Bihar Al-Anwar: "On this night, you have to read the holy Quran, the supplications from Sahifa As-Sajjadiyah, especially Du'a noble traits [Makarim Akhlaq] and Du'a of repentance. And one has to respect the sanctity of the nights and days of Qadr, engaged in worship, the recitation of Quran and supplication.
