- “ ‘Aishah narrated: “I said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, what is your view if I know when the Night of Al-Qadr is, then what should I say in it?’ He said: ‘Say: “O Allah, indeed You are Pardoning, [Generous,] You love pardon, so pardon me (Allahumma Innaka ‘Afuwun [Karimun], Tuhibbul-‘Afwa Fa’fu ‘Anni).”’ (Sahih) ”  – presented above.
- This hadith is reported in Tirmidhi as one hadith, but with 2 variants to the wording. The supplication presented above is one variant of the wording reported. I had posted both variants (as reported in the hadith) a few years back [here].
