The Last Ten Nights of Ramadan and Laylat Al Qadr

The last 10 nights of Ramadan hold special significance among the 3 parts of Ramadan as it is the most precious time for worshipping and fasting. Commencing from the night before the twenty-first of Ramadan, it is the time of this sacred month when Muslims increase their ibadah while thanking Allah (SWT) for the opportunity to seek forgiveness in the final stretch of the holy month.

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.

The Last 10 Days of Ramadan – Laylat Al Qadr (The Night of Power)

The Night of Power – Laylat Al Qadr

In the third Ashra of Ramadan, the most important night to reap multiple rewards and practice ibadah is the night of Laylat Al Qadr. The Night of Power, or Laylat Al Qadr, is the night mentioned in the Qur’an and is said to be better than a thousand nights.

“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!” (Holy Qur’an 97:1-5)

Ibadah for Laylat Al QadrIbadah for Laylat Al Qadr

Considering the significance of this special night, make sure to increase your ibadah by reciting the Holy Quran and offering prayers. Do zikr and recite the durood as much as possible. During the last ten nights of Ramadan, practice good deeds for a better life ahead and to seek Allah’s blessings.

“Whoever spends Laylat al-Qadr in prayer, believing in Allah and seeking His reward, will be forgiven all of his past sins.” (Bukhari & Muslim)

Verily, the month of Ramadan has come to you all. It is a blessed month, which Allah has obligated you all to fast. During it, the gates of Paradise are opened, the gates of Hell are closed, and the devils are shackled. In it there is a night that is better than one thousand months. Whoever is deprived of its good, then he has truly been deprived. (Ahmad)

Laylat Al Qadr can fall on any of the last ten nights during Ramadan but some sources report that it can be on an odd night. For also those observing Ramadan, the last ten nights of Ramadan are a time to exert oneself in remembrance of Allah (SWT).

Aim to complete extra prayers during these nights. Make sure you complete all sunnah prayers and attend Tarawih prayers at your local masjid. You can also complete additional (nafl) prayers to earn extra reward.

Abu Hurairah (radhi Allaahu anhu) that the Messenger of Allaah (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam) said: “Whoever performs the night prayer on the night of Al-Qadr with Eemaan (firm belief) and seeking reward will have all his past sins forgiven.” (Bukhari)

Increase Your Du’a

During the last ten days of Ramadan, you should increase the du’a that you make.

 “O Messenger of Allah! If I find the Night of Al-Qadr what should I say?” He (saw) replied, Say : “O Allah! Verily You are the Oft-Pardoning, You love to pardon, so pardon me.” (Ahmad)

Allaahumma innaka ‘afuwwun, tuhibb al-‘afwa, fa’fu ‘anni

There are several other special du’a you can make which are short and easy to remember but will hold extra importance during the last ten nights of Ramadan:

Allaahummah-dinee wa sadd-dadnee

O Allah! Direct me to the Right Path and make me adhere to the Straight Path.

Allaahumma innee as-aluka Ridaaka wal Jannah wa a’audhu’bika min sakhatika wan-naar

O Allah, I ask of Your pleasure and for Paradise, and I seek refuge from Your displeasure and from the Hellfire.

My 10 Nights - Never Miss Laylat ul-QadrIncrease Good Deeds During the Last Ten Days of Ramadan

In addition to increasing your ibadah, it is important to engage yourself in good deeds so that Allah (SWT) bestows His mercy and blessings upon you. Practicing good deeds includes acts of charity such as helping those who are less fortunate and cannot afford one another, preparing and serving iftar for others, or donating online your Zakat and Sadaqah.

The last ten nights of Ramadan is a time of reflection and understanding of the blessings that we have. Your donation can change lives and bring you extra rewards during the last ten nights of Ramadan. When you give to others for the sake of Allah (SWT) your actions count as worship and earn extra blessings. Your generosity can ensure that deprived people can have food, clean water, education, livelihood support, and more, helping them to recover from devastating flooding and break free from the cycle of poverty.
