1) Does al-Bada' occur outside of Laylat ul-Qadr? I saw a hadith from Imam ar-Ridha AS that said that everything that happens to us is written on Laylat ul-Qadr. So does al-Bada'/change in destiny occur outside of Laylat ul-Qadr? Is al-Bada' already accounted for on Laylat ul-Qadr?

2) What's the point of having a designated night for writing destinies if it could possibly completely change?

1) Bada’ can occur even in matters that are destined on Laylatul Qadr.

2) The night is very important. Our future is determined, but this doesn’t mean that it can’t be changed. Most things probably don’t change, but some things might change. If nothing would change we would lose hope and say what’s the point in making an effort when I’m stuck with a written fate.
