The Last 10 Days of Ramadan and MyTenNights

Why Are the Last 10 Days So Important?

The last ten days of Ramadan hold immense virtue. Allah SWT has granted a special characteristic to these days and nights. The whole month is the month of mercy and forgiveness. It is a time when Allah opens the gates of Paradise and closes the gates of Hell and chains up the devils, as stated in Bukhari and Muslim. The last ten days are even more distinguished as they hold a special night amongst them. Allah SWT chose this night of the last ten days to reveal the Quran to the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) in the last 10 days of the holy month as mentioned in the Qur’an:

‘We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power.’ (97:1)

The believers strive to devote themselves to prayers and recitation of the Qur’an to please Allah (SWT). It is a chance for every Muslim to have their sins forgiven and become closer to Allah (SWT) – it is a time for spiritual healing.

What is Laylat al Qadr? 

 Laylat al Qadr, or the Night of Power, is the night when the first verses of the Qur’an were revealed to the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) by the Angel Jibril (Gabriel). Although it is not certain when exactly Laylat-al-Qadr is, there is sufficient evidence to determine that it is one of the last odd ten nights of Ramadan. The Prophet SAW used to strive hard in worship in the last ten days, seeking Laylat-al-Qadr. It is reported that Prophet SAW said:

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

According to the scholars, the odd-numbered nights during the last ten nights are more likely than others, and the night of the twenty-seventh is the most likely to be Laylat al-Qadr, because that is mentioned in the hadith. In a narration by Aisha R.A., the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

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

What to Do in the Last 10 Days of Ramadan:

 During the last 10 nights of Ramadan, it is advisable to increase in acts of virtue. Noble deeds are multiplied by thousands around this time. There are so many ways of earning reward which include prayer, recitation of the Qur’an and donations to charity. The messenger of Allah SAW also performed Itikaf in these days, as stated in hadith. A great virtue has been attached to Itikaf in the last ten days.

Why is it Important to Donate on Laylat al Qadr? 

 The prophet SAW used to increase significantly acts of charity during Ramadan. In a hadith, a companion equated his charity to racing winds during Ramadan. Allah SWT has venerated this night more than any other night. The Qur’an says in surah Al-Qadr that ‘the Night of Power is better than a thousand months.’ Everything done in the name of Allah (SWT) on this night has its rewards multiplied, which is why many people give their Sadaqah or Zakat to charity during this time, in an attempt to gain the most reward.

What do Orphans in Need do with Your Donations? 

 When using MyTenNights, you can choose which charity and cause you wish to donate to. For Orphans in Need, you can choose to give food to orphan and widow families, sponsor an orphan, or give your Zakat.

Giving food means you can feed an orphan and widow family for a month. One of our food parcels gives an average family of five people enough supplies like rice and flour to keep them going for a month.

By sponsoring an orphan, you are making sure that an orphan is given education, food, healthcare, and clothes for as long as you support them.

Your Zakat helps powerless orphans and widows with what they need most, including urgent medical care and water. In all cases, your Zakat goes straight to society’s most vulnerable.
