ramadan last nights

Every moment of Ramdan is priceless and we should not let it go without earning reward from Allah SWT. The last 10 days of Ramdan are even more valuable than first twenty days due to many reasons. Allah’s Messenger used to exert himself in devotion during the last ten nights to a greater extent than at any other time.” (Muslim).

The Prophet said: “Whoever prays during the night of Qadr with faith and hoping for its reward will have all of his previous sins forgiven.” (Bukhari and Muslim recorded from Abu Huraira).

  1. Take a vacation for Allah.

We take break from our work when we have some important events in our life. Ramadan is time for blessings and salvation so not we should take break from our jobs and focus on to focus on worshiping and thanking our Creator.

  1. Do Itikaf.

Our beloved prophet Mohammed peace be upon him used to spend the last ten days and nights of Ramadan in the mosque for Itikaf. Itekaf is cutting off your relations with the world and devoting all your time in zikr, salat, reading Quran etc. Its sunnah to do itekaf for last ten days of Ramadan but if you’re not able to spare time for sunnah itekaf you can also do it for few days or even one night.

  1. Make this special Dua.

Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her, said: I asked the Messenger of Allah: ‘O Messenger of Allah, if I know what night is the night of Qadr, what should I say during it?’ He said: ‘Say: O Allah, You are pardoning and You love to pardon, so pardon me.’ “(Ahmad, Ibn Majah, and Tirmidhi).
