Do all Muslims believe in Lailatul Qadr?

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from the Prophet of Islam (PBUH) who said: Whoever stays awake at Lailatul Qadr (Night of Qadr/ Night of Destiny), and is a believer, and believes in the Day of Judgment, all his/her sins will be forgiven [1]. The exact time of Lailatul Qadr is not known, but in many narrations, it has been stressed that Lailatul Qadr is in the Month of Ramadhan [2]. According to Shia narrations, three nights of 19th, 21st, and 23rd in the Month of Ramadhan have been emphasized, and among those three nights, the probability that the 23rd night of Ramadhan is Lailatul Qadr is more than the other nights. According to another narration, on the 19th night of Ramadhan, destinies are written, on 21st night, they are approved and on 23rd night they are signed and sealed [3]. The 27th night of Ramadhan and the night of Mid-Sha’aban are other nights which have been mentioned [4]. Most of Ahlul Sunnah believe that Lailatul Qadr occurs in one of the last ten nights of the Month of Ramadhan, and the probability of 27th night is more than other nights [5].
