How to Spend The Last 10 Nights in Ramadaan by Shaykh Saalih al-Luhaydaan

August 28, 2010

بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم
When the last ten nights of Ramadhaan comes, then the Muslim should increase in his actions, and in his salaah. The Messenger of Allaah (صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم), in the first 20 nights of Ramadhaan would pray and then go to sleep; and as soon as the 10 last nights came along, he would fold up what he would sleep on and he would tie his pants tight – meaning getting ready for his salaah, and he would bring alive the night by praying.

So in the last ten nights the Messenger of Allaah (صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم) would increase in worship in preparation for the night that the Qur’aan was revealed – the night of al-Qadr about which Allaah said:

لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ خَيْرٌ مِّنْ أَلْفِ شَهْرٍ

The Night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is better than a thousand months (i.e. worshipping Allaah in that night is better than worshiping Him a thousand months, i.e. 83 years and 4 months). [Surah Al-Qadr 97:3]

The best of what is done in these nights include:
• Du’aa
• Performing the Night Prayer
• Recitation of the Qur’aan
• Istighfaar (seek forgiveness)
• Dhikr (remembrance of Allaah)
• I’tikaaf in the masjid
One must avoid fighting, quarrelling, debating and vain and useless speech – completely free yourself only for worshiping Allaah.
