Decision of life and death and Rizq in Shab Bara'at
What has happened from the start and what will happen till the ends is all written in the Lauh Mahfooz (The protected tablet), but every year in Shab Bara'at Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) takes separate decisions and gives commands, which the angels note down from the Lauh Mahfooz. It is written in that who will be born in this year and who will leave this world and who will get how much Rizq, as given in this Hadith of Imam Baihaqi in Ad Da'awatul Kabeer:
Translation: It has been narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Ummul Momineen Aisha Siddiqa (May Allah SWT be well pleased with her) that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: Do you know what is the excellence of this night? She requested: What is the greatness of this night, O Prophet of Allah! (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)? The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: The birth of all the children of this year is decided in this night; the children of Adam who will die this year is also decided this night and in this night, the deeds of the people are presented to the Lord Almighty and their Rizq is brought down.
She requested: O Prophet of Allah! (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) is there none who will enter Jannah without the mercy of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala)? She repeated this thrice. Then she said: Not even you, O Prophet of Allah! Then the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) kept His hand on His head and repeated thrice: No. The truth is that out of His benevolence, Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) covers Me with His mercy?

In this Hadith, there is a mention of Rizq being given. It means 2 kinds of Rizq, one which nourishes the body and the other which nourishes the soul. Hadhrat Mulla Ali Qari says:
Translation: This includes the physical and spiritual Rizq. (Mirqat, Vol. 1, Pg. No. 176)
