        14 Powerful Tips for the Last 10 Nights of Ramadan


        1. All is Not Lost!

        Do not let your ‘performance’ until now affect your last 10 days. The moment of forgiveness could be today or anytime in the coming days! It is not all lost! If you sincerely wish it could have been better – Chin up and get ready to make it your best yet! Start with a positive, sincere intention!

        2. Understand

        Today, take a little time to read the Tafseer of Surah al-Qadr to understand what actually happens this night! You will feel its power & greatness so much more!

        3. 27th Night?

        Do not wait for the 27th Night to give it your “all”. The entire last 10 days should be your target. Stay up each night! Would you want to miss Laylatul Qadr even “by chance”?

        4. Follow the Sunnah

        Do not fall into any innovations/celebrations any masjid or culture might try to promote. Follow the Sunnah! The Prophet (sallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) guided us simply: “Whoever stays up and prays on Laylat al-Qadr out of faith and in the hope of reward, his previous sins will be forgiven.”

        5. Prophetic Du’a

        Memorize and keep asking the dua’ taught by Rasulullah (sallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam): “Allaahumma innaka ‘afuwwun tuhibb al-‘afwa fa’affu ‘anni” (O Allaah, You are forgiving and You love forgiveness, so forgive me).

        6. Lots of Du’a

        Prepare a short dua’ list. Remember this is as awesome as it ever gets for a servant of Allah! The Night of Qadr, of Destiny! Consciously pick each and everything you crucially wish for in this dunya, in your deen, family, and in your aakhirah! Don’t forget to include the brothers and sisters around the world who are suffering and in grief!

        7. Relax

        Take brief naps during the day, if possible. Keep your stomach light and sleep as soon as you have prayed ‘isha. Do not delay! After a brief nap, refresh yourself and get ready for worship.

        8. Don’t Neglect your Family!

        Rasulullah made it a point to wake up his wives throughout these nights! And yes, your children are not too young to stay up some part of the night – if they can be allowed to play video games or watch TV, they can be inspired to be up atleast for sometime! Prepare them, make them excited, plan some activities for them to do!

        9. Look the Part

        The way we dress and prepare has a big effect on our psychology. Wear your best, perfume yourself, and feel the energy!

        10. Choose a Spot

        Whether in the Masjid or in your home, where you can have peace and solitude. Keep your mushaf, praying mat, and water at hand so that you are not distracted by constantly getting up for this or that.

        11. Social Media

        This is not the night to tweet pics or update FB statuses about how amazing the night is and how you are feeling & worshipping Allah! Let that be a secret between you & your Rabb! So switch off those phones, wifi, laptops and computers. Disconnect with the world, and connect with al-‘Afuww!

        12. Mix it up

        If you find yourself feeling sleepy, vary your acts of worship. Alternate between qiyaam, heartfelt dua’a, reading the Qur’an. Do not spend the night listening to lectures or recitations. Or do it only for a short while when you feel the sleep coming on!

        13. Patience is the Key

        The last 10 days might be tiring. You might still have work or school. This is the time to bear all that hardship, and keep firm sabr. Think how Allah has blessed you with this tremendous opportunity that might NEVER come again in your life again. If you knew for sure that this was your last Ramadan , if you knew certainly that Jannah was up for grabs, wouldn’t you sprint for it no matter what it takes?

        14. Most Importantly…

        Keep husn adh-dhann bi Allah (good expectations from Allah). When you ask, remember you are asking the Most Generous King. If you hope for the best, He will give you the best. Don’t hold back. Trust in Him, pour out your heart in front of Him, and let no doubt, no barrier, no evil thoughts keep you away from ar-Rahman, ar-Raheem!

        Allahumma ballighna laylatal qadr..

          How to get through the hot weather tduring fasting:

          1. Have small healthy moisture rich meals between Iftaar and Suhoor and ensure the foods are not unhealthy like fried and salty as it makes one lethargic for worship and more thirsty.

          2. Try to get good sleep between Fajr and when you have to awaken and try to have a power nap during the day either before or after Dhuhur prayer as this will make one feel much better.

          3. Try not to go out too much in the heat especially around midday and ensure not to overly physically exert yourself. Try not to drive around too much either unless you have to.

          4. Keep yourself busy with worship so you have less time to get agitated at things!

          5. Do not get into debates and discussions about sensitive, personal, or political matters during fasting as these can lead to arguments.

          6. Keep sipping on water between Iftaar and Suhoor to ensure you are sufficiently hydrated.

          7. Keep reminding yourself that you are fasting. Write it on your screen saver etc and imagine the rewards in your mind if you are patient. Think to yourself there are not many days left so you want to make the best of the few days of fasting that are left.
