THEN
Imam Mohammad Baqi(a.s.) says that during these nights (i.e. the 19th, 21st and 23rd of Ramzan)

Hold and open the Holy Quran in front of your face and recite this Dua :mp3

wa taqzi-a hawa'eji lid-duniya wal aakhirah.

and then ask for whatever you wish from your Lord(swt). Inshallah that wish will be granted.
Then

Alla humma be haqqe hazal qura'ane wa be haqqe man arsaltahu behi wa be haqqe kulle mu'minin madahtahu feehe wa be haqqeka alaehim fala ahada aarafo be haqqeka minka.
