Ramadan is a special month that occurs only once a year. For Muslims, each day of Ramadan is nothing short of a blessing. It is an opportunity for Muslims to repent, receive Allah's mercy, and ask for His forgiveness and blessings, as Allah SWT promising to accept their prayers, forgive their sins, and reward them 70 times more than usual. The blissful month is divided into three parts, or Ashras, the most important of which is the last Ashra (the last ten days of Ramadan). Because the blessed night Layla-tul-Qadar occurs in this part of Ramadan, Muslims should increase their prayers and supplications. One night of Layla-tul-Qadar is worth a thousand months.
"The Messenger of Allah would Yujawir (stay in I'tikaf) during the last 10 nights of Ramadan, and he said, 'Seek the Night of Al-Qadr during the last 10 nights of Ramadan." (Jami` at-Tirmidhi 792)
Make an effort to find the night of power hidden in one of Ramadan's last ten days, especially the odd-numbered nights of the 21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th, and 29th. Your body requires a lot of energy and motivation to maximize your supplications in the last 10 days of Ramadan. Let us highlight some suggestions for making your last Ashra of the Holy Month of Ramadan more blessed and holy.
Recitation of the Holy Quran
There is no better combination than fasting and recitation of the Holy Quran. Recitation of the Quran is essential throughout the month, but in the last 10 days, make an effort to recite as much as possible. Every word of the Quran is a source of great reward and blessings. There is nothing wrong with saying that fasting is incomplete without reciting the Quran. On the Day of Judgement, the Quran and fast will beg for their followers. Fasting will say to the Lord on the Day of Resurrection, O Lord, I deprived him of his food and necessities during the day, so let me intervene for him. And the Quran will say, "I deprived him of his sleep at night; therefore, allow me to intervene for him." Both will then intervene.”
Eat Suhoor, Drink Sufficient Water, and Take Power Naps:
Suhoor is a Sunnah of our cherished Prophet Muhammad PBUH. He SAWW advised Muslims to eat this pre-dawn meal to keep them going throughout the day. Suhoor should be eaten instead of large meals late at night. In Suhoor, avoid junk or unhealthy foods and just eat high-energy meals such as proteins, carbohydrates, and fiber, which will keep you energized until Iftaar. The beauty of Islam is that we receive benefits and rewards when we obey Allah and His Messenger SAWW's commands. Our bodies function properly when we eat Suhoor, and we obey the Sunnah, which gives us great rewards from Allah Almighty. Also, keep yourself hydrated. From Iftaar to Suhoor, drink at least 8 glasses of water. Instead of drinking all at once, drink it gradually so your body can properly store it. It is important to stay hydrated in order to maintain your energy level. When your body is properly hydrated, you can more readily engage in extensive worship. Fruits have a high percentage of water, which helps you stay hydrated. Include them in your diet. Let's move on to another important thing that keeps you going. If sleeping for eight hours at the minimum is not possible, take power naps; otherwise, you will feel dizzy or exhausted, which will interfere with your prayer schedule.
Extend the Duration of Prayers:
The last 10 days of Ramadan bring the holy month to an end, leaving a year to complete other daily tasks before it again comes back. So, rather than wasting this valuable time in shopping, extend the duration of your prayers, Quran recitation, and supplications to get the maximum from Ramadan's last days.
Narrated by Hazrat Ayesha RA:
When the last ten days of Ramadan began, the Prophet (S.A.W.W) used to tighten his waist belt (i.e. work hard) and pray all night, keeping his family awake for the prayers. (Sahih al-Bukhari 2024)
The last 10 days of Ramadan Umrah packages are available at affordable prices. Once a year, these 10 days provide an opportunity to follow the great Sunnah of Itikaaf. He SAWW went into seclusion and spent the last Ashra of Ramadan in prayers and supplications, worshipping the Supreme World's Creator at all hours of the day and night with minimal human interaction. Muslims who sit on Itikaaf and make sure to spend the entire time in worship, asking for forgiveness and blessings to the seeker, and to abandon all earthly activities and routines in order to devote the entire 10 days to praising and worshipping Allah.
Increase The Amount of Dhikr:
In the last 10 days of Ramadan, increase the amount of Dhikr. Don't just do it at certain times of the day; do it all of the time. Recite any surah, ayah, Durood, or dua that comes to mind. Continue to recite the third Ashra dua. The purpose of the Holy Month is to remember Allah and to purify our souls from previous sins, allowing the worshipper to get closer to Allah Almighty. Therefore, in addition to regular prayers and Taraweeh, you should make Dhikr continuously.
Make an Effort to Find the Layla-tul-Qadr:
The Night of Decree is referred to as Layla-tul-Qadar, a blessed and spiritual night. In the Islamic calendar, this holy night is one of the most revered and cherished nights. In the last 10 days of Ramadan, search for Layla-tul-Qadar on odd nights. Try to stay awake in odd nights, praying, supplicating, making Dhikr, or reciting the Quran as much as you can.
In the manifest Book (the Holy Quran) that makes things clear,” Allah SWT said; On a blessed night (Layla-tul-Qadar), we sent it down.” One of the main goals of the last Ashra of Ramadan is to find this night.
Never miss this golden opportunity to receive a reward 70 times greater than on normal days, and try to spend Laila tul Qadar night in Masjid-ul-Haram. Take advantage of booking the last 10 days of Ramadan Umrah packages according to preference and try to make this pilgrimage at least once in your life, as it will cleanse you of your sins and leave you as pure as a newborn baby.
