Last 10 Days Of Ramadan

As the holy month of Ramadan draws to a close, Muslims around the world enter into the spiritually charged period known as the last 10 days of Ramadan. This final stretch is imbued with significance, culminating in the holiest night of the Islamic calendar: Laylat al-Qadr, the Night of Power. In this blog, we delve into the profound significance of these last days and the transformative potential they hold for believers.

“We have indeed revealed this in the ‘Night of Power’. And what will explain to you what the night of power is? The Night of Power is better than a thousand months. Therein come down The Angels and the Spirit by Allah’s permission, on every errand. “Peace!…This until the rise of Morn!”

-Surah Al-Qadr

The Last Ten Nights of Ramadan

During these last 10 nights of Ramadan, additional rewards and blessings may be attainable. According to the Sunnah, these are the nights when the Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) would increase his worship.

“The Prophet would exert himself in worship during the last ten nights more than at any other time of the year.” (Muslim)

Here we have reminders of the acts of worship to let you make the most of these special last ten nights of Ramadan 2024.

What Is the Night of Power?- Laylat-al-Qadr Meaning

The Night of Power is the most venerated night of the Islamic calendar. During this night, Angel Jibril revealed the Holy Qur’an’s first verses to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). This night falls within Ramadan’s final 10 days, and although the exact date is unidentified, it is commonly thought of as the Holy month’s 27th night. However, the believers are advised to seek this night in the last 10 odd nights of Ramadan, following the example of the Prophet (PBUH). It is reported that the Prophet (PBUH) said:

“Seek Laylat al-Qadr in the last ten days of Ramadan.” [Bukhari and Muslim]

This is a night of great reward and significance. On this blessed night, the believers are encouraged to devote themselves to the worship of Allah (SWT),Who has placed it higher in virtue than one thousand months.

When is Laylat-al-Qadr 2024?

The Night of Power occurs in Ramadan’s 10 final odd nights. The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) advised the believers to:

“Seek Laylat al-Qadr in the odd-numbered nights of the last ten nights.” [Bukhari, 4/259]

However, it is traditionally thought to take place on the 27th night, based on some narrations. In 2024, the 27th of Ramadan might fall on 7 April, with a variation of a couple of days depending on moonsighting.

Duas for Laylat-al-Qadr

The best dua for Laylat-al-Qadr is the dua the Prophet (PBUH) taught Aisha (R.A.)She is reported to have asked the Prophet (PBUH), “O Messenger of Allah If I know which night is Laylat al-Qadr, what should I say?” He said:

“Say: اللَّهمَّإنَّكعفُوٌّتُحبُّالعفوَفاعْفُعنِّي

Allahummainnakaafuwwuntuhibb al-afwafa’fu anni

(O Allah, You are All-Forgiving, and You love forgiveness, so forgive me).”
