Ramadan is passing by fast and we are now in the final third of the month – The emancipation from the hellfire.
During these next 10 days read the following dua in abundance:
اَللَّهُمَّ أَجِرْنِي مِنَ النَّارِ
“Oh Allah, protect us from the fire”
During these next 10 days lies hidden Laylat al-Qadr or The Night of Power. Although the exact date of this Blessed and Holy night is hidden, it is widely thought to be on the night of the 27th Ramadan. The Prophet ﷺ said “Whoever stands in prayer on Laylat al-Qadr out of faith and expectation (of Allah’s reward) will have his previous sins forgiven. What can we do each night to maximise our chances of capturing Laylat al-Qadr?
Stand in Prayer
Be sure to stand for Taraweeh and night prayers. Furthermore make plenty of Dua for the Ummah, yourself and your loved ones.
Seek forgiveness in Allah
As Laylat al-Qadr falls within third of emancipation from the hellfire – make lots of dua for forgiveness.
Reciting the Qur’an
Reciting Qur’an helps us to develop gratitude to Allah for His blessings upon us and inspires us to make sincere Dua’s to Him. Furthermore every letter recited during The Night of Power brings 83 years worth of rewards!
Umar ibn Abdul Aziz رضي الله عنه narrated the The Prophet ﷺ said “Salah Will reach you half of the way fasting will reach you the door of the King and charity will enter you into the presence of the king.” Be sure to donate daily throughout the last 10 days of Ramadan in order to recieve the equivalent of 83 years of reward for your donation.
Perform Good Deeds during these 10 days in order to catch Laylat al-Qadr and maximise the reward – don’t forget that the best of Deeds is Sadaqah and the best of Sadaqah is that which is given during Ramadan! Make the effort each night to donate Sadaqah to help those most in need in our Ummah.
