We are approaching the end of this holy month.

The last ten days of Ramadan are a time of special spiritual power as everyone tries to come closer to Allah  through our devotions and good deeds.  May Allah answer our intentions.

“Indeed, We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power. And what will explain to thee what the night of power is? The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.” Qur’an (97:1-3)

Muslims regard this as the most important event in history, and the Qur’an says that on this night the angels descend to earth. Amazing to just read this and to ponder its meaning to only acknowledge that Ramadan and the Quran are so directly linked to benefit us in more than one way. The opportunity is so full of wisdom and I thank Allah for allowing us to spend it in the best manner.

This is a time that Muslims spend in study and prayer. Some will spend the whole night in prayer or in reciting the Qur’an.

Lailat al Qadr is a good time to ask for forgiveness. Allah’s Apostle said…

Whoever establishes the prayers on the night of Qadr out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah’s rewards (not to show off) then all his past sins will be forgiven.Hadith, Bukhari Vol 1, Book 2:34

Because of this, many Muslims will treat the last 10 days of the month of Ramadan as a particularly good time for prayer and reading the Qur’an.

May these 10 tens days be one of complete dedication, inspiration and encouragement.

Ameen

    As Salaamu Alaikum Sis:

    Yes, I understand what you mean and feel what you are expressing about forgetting the lessons we have learned. Insh’Allah, I pray this is not the case although we are human and make mistakes. May Allah always keep us on the right track.

    Ameen
