What is the night of destiny?

SHAFAQNA – In the night of destiny (Lailatul Qadr), the angel will come down to the Caliph of Allah (SWT) in order to take delivery of all the affairs signed by him and then depart to put those in action. In that night everything (every aspect of life) will be separated and specified as mentioned in Ayah 4 of Surah Ad-Dukhan. That is why this night has been called the night of destiny/fate. Imam Sadeq (AS) said: Destinies are specified on the 19th night; they are approved on 21st, and are signed on 23rd night of the holy Month of Ramadhan [1]. In another narration, Imam Sadeq (AS) said: The beginning of the year is Lailatul Qadr. At that night the plan for the year ahead will be written [2]. It is also narrated from Imam Sadeq (AS) who said: According to Divine Teachings, Lailatul Qadr is clearly the heart of the holy Month of Ramadhan [3].
