What is the yearly plan which is sent in one night to the Imam of the time?

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated that Imam Ali (AS) told Ibn Abbas: The Night of Qadr happens every year. At that night the yearly plan is sent down and after the Prophet (PBUH), there are those whom the plan is sent to them. Ibn Abbas asked: Who are they? Imam Ali (AS) replied: I and eleven of my progenies. They are leaders of the religion who are in connection with the unseen world [1]. It is also narrated from Saeed Ibn Yassar who said: I was with Mo’alla Bin Khonays when the representative of Imam Sadiq (AS) entered.

I told him: Ask Imam Sadiq (AS) about Lailatul Qadr (Night of Qadr/Night of Destiny). When he returned, I told him: Did you ask? He replied: Yes, whatever I wanted and whatever I did not want. He continued by saying: Imam Sadeq (AS) informed me that at that night, God will make certain the destinies of that year. Then God will send it (by angels) towards the earth. I asked: To whom? Imam (AS) replied: To the one who you can see (meaning, Imam (AS) himself; the Imam of the time) [2].
