Ramadan Gems(day 20: Last Ten Nights)

Last Ten Nights:-

Ok. So time passed by sooooo quicklyyy and here we have the MOST PRECIOUS TEN NIGHTS of the month of Ramadan. I’ll begin with a hadith ..

Narrated `Aisha:
Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) used to bepractice I`tikaf in the last ten nights of Ramadan and used to say, “Look for the Night of Qadr in the last ten nights of the month of Ramadan.”

Reference
: Sahih al-Bukhari 2020
In-book reference
: Book 32, Hadith 7
USC-MSA web (English) reference
: Vol. 3, Book 32, Hadith 237
(deprecated numbering scheme)

Ohh another one..

Narrated `Aisha:
Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “Search for the Night of Qadr in the odd nights of the last ten days of Ramadan.”

Reference
: Sahih al-Bukhari 2017
In-book reference
: Book 32, Hadith 4
USC-MSA web (English) reference
: Vol. 3, Book 32, Hadith 234
(deprecated numbering scheme)

The entire social media is flooding with messages, gifs, videos, audios, blog posts and what not and all of them describing the BLESSINGS OF THE NIGHT OF QADR. Meaning all of us are aware of how important this opportunity is to every Muslim on this globe.

So Laylatul Qadr is better than a thousand months, SubhanAllah. Every act of ibadah you do on that night it’s like you’ve done it for 83 years. SubhanAllah!!!!!

So we don’t want to be fools to let it go out of negligence. For sure you might have found fabulous ideas to make use of this opportunity, what I wanted to say is:

#1. Don’t waste time people. Complete all your work before iftar, manage your time and make the most of day time to finish all your job related or studies related or cooking or whatever it is finish it before iftar.

#2. Switch off your connection with social media. After iftar, no social media nothing. Only Quran, Salah and ibadah that’s it. You can tell your friends what you did the next day, but for the night time forget about it.

#3. Make a list of all your duas, zikr to do and Quran portion to complete. Lists are really very helpful and don’t just write the and keep it inside the shelf and forget about it, keep it in a place where you can see it and remind yourself of what you have to ask and do.

#4. Be strict to yourself, don’t let your nafs control you instead you control it. I heard a proverb kinda thing yesterday in urdu jiska ek pau nafs par , dusra pau jannat me. Meaning, one who has control over his nafs I.e, if he could stamp over his nafs and control it from doing evil then it’s like he has got a ticket to enter jannah. sorry for the bad translation. Hope you have got the idea of what I was trying to explain.

So that’s it everyone. May Allah give each one of us hidayah to make the most of these golden nights and may Allah forgive us all. Ameen

Salam 🙂
