14 Things to do on Odd Nights of last 10 days of Ramadan

Ramadan is one of the holiest months in the Islamic calendar. It is a month in which the faithful can receive countless blessings from Allah and be engrossed in prayer and worship to him. As Ramadan has come and is now slowly nearing towards its end, the last 10 blessed nights of Ramadan are upon us. Below we will give you a few useful tips to get the best out of Lailatul Qadr. Many Muslims wrongly believe that only the night of 27th Ramadan is Lailatul Qadr, however this is just a misconception. The exact date of this Night of Power is unknown; however it is known that it occurs in one of the last ten odd nights of the month of Ramadan. (21, 23, 25, 27, 29). Additionally they shall be granted the same amount of good deeds for 1,000 months of worship. (83.3 years).

It does not matter now, whether the first half or first 20 days of Ramadan have been for you. Each and every person can redeem themselves and earn blessings in the last 10 days by entering into it with complete motivation, purest of intentions, full of energy and having a positive outlook.

  1. It is best if you can spare last 10 days of Ramadan for Allah and perform Itakaf. Keep in mind, one of these 10 nights is the night better than 1,000 months. You will get thawab of Itakaf of 30,000 days.
  2. You can read or listen to the Tafsir of the Surah Al Qadr; this will help you learn more about the amazing night. In light of unity of all Muslim brothers, we say that the blessed night can be ANY one of the last 10 days of this Holy Month. If you read one chapter of Quran on this night, you will get thawab you have read that chapter for 30,000 days (1,000 months)
  3. Pray 2 rakats of Salatul Tawbah every night and ask for forgiveness from the Almighty. You should repent your sins with the intention of never repeating them ever again.
  4. Try to give at least SR 1 each odd night as charity. You will get thawab as you have given charity for 1,000 months.
  5. Don’t miss Taraweeh during odd nights of last 10 days of Ramadan. All of us are sinful but if we get a chance to perform 8 or 20 Taraweeh, it is like performing 240,000 or 600,000 Taraweeh.
  6. Recite at least all those small chapters of Quran which you have memorized while driving or doing other chores of work. It will not take more than 10 minutes for an average man to recite them. But these 10 minutes can be very heavy if you recite them during Lailatul Qadr.
  7. You should ideally choose the most comfortable place in your home or in the mosque, to worship Allah, as you will be able to spend longer time in a comfortable spot. While reciting the Holy Quran or Adhkaar, you should make sure that your back should not be leaning against a pillar or cushion.
  8. Turn off your electronic devices i.e. laptop, iPod etc. wherever possible.

  10. If you are not able to follow the previous tip, then do so in a normal volume; however you can listen to recorded Qiraat in higher volume using speakers or headphones.
  11. Make the most amount of Duaa in your Sujood as possible, and hence elongating the Sujood. Ask Allah everything that you wish for in this world and the next.
  12. Spend sometime with your parents if they are alive, be gentle with them. Be gentle with the domestic workers and everyone in your home.
