The holy Night of Acquittal (Bera’at), tonight, is like a sacred seed of the whole year and the programme of human destiny, and is therefore as holy as the Night of Power. Just as all good works on the Night of Power yield thirty thousand merits, so on this Night of Acquittal the merits of such acts and for each letter of the Qur’an rise to twenty thousand. If at other times such merits are ten, during the three months [of Rajab, Sha‘ban, and Ramadan] they rise to a hundred or a thousand. Then on the well-known holy nights, they rise to tens of thousands or twenty or thirty thousand. These nights may be the equivalent of fifty years of worship. It is highly profitable to be occupied as far as one can with the Qur’an, seeking Divine forgiveness, and uttering prayers for the Prophet (PBUH).
