A righteous wife who will help you in religious and worldly affairs is better than all the treasures the people have collected.
—  The Prophet (ﷺ) [Ahmad (5/282) Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah from Thawbaan, Saheeh ul-Jaami no. 5355]

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said

  • Whoever alleviates a burden among the burdens of the world for his brother, Allah alleviates a burden among the burdens of the Day of Judgement for him
  • And whoever covers (the faults) of a Muslim, Allah covers him in the world and in the Hereafter
  • And whoever makes things easy for one in dire straits, Allah makes things easy for him in the world and the Hereafter
  • Allah is helping as long as his slave is helping his brother
  • And whoever takes a path to gain knowledge, Allah makes a path to Paradise easy for him
  • And no people sit in a Masjid reciting Allah’s Book, studying it among themselves, except that tranquility descends upon them and they are enveloped in the mercy, and surrounded by the angels
  • And whoever is slow in his deeds, his lineage shall not speed him up

Sahih Tirmidhi

What’s the difference between Maghfirah (مغفرة ) and ‘Afuw (عفو )?
Maghfriah: is for Allah to forgive you for the sin but the sin will still be registered on your book of deeds. Maghfirah is Allah’s forgiveness for your sin but on the Judgment Day it will be written on your record, Allah will ask you about it but HE won’t punish you because of it

'Afuw: is for Allah to forgive you for the sin and delete it from your book of deeds as if it did not happen. ‘Afuw is Allah’s pardon for your sin, it will be completely erased from your record and Allah won’t ask you about it on Judgement day

This is why our Prophet (salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said that, this is the best Duaa to make on Laylatul Qadr:

“Allahumma innaka 'afuwwun tuhibbul 'afwa fa'fu 'annee”
(Ahmad, Ibn Majah, and Tirmidhi)

O Allah, You are The One Who pardons greatly, and You love to pardon, so pardon me.)“

So make sure you read this dua all the time and as much as you can. Make it one of your daily athkaar.
Imagine that you are standing on the day of Judgment being held accountable for your deeds, and you’re not guaranteed your entry to Jannah.

Suddenly you find that you have mountains of Hasanat (rewards) in your record

Do you know from where these mountains of rewards come from?

Because in the Dunya you kept saying :”SubhanAllah wa bihamdihi SubhanAllah al ‘Adhim”

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said: "Two words are light on the tongue, weigh heavily in the balance, they are loved by Al Rahman, (The Most Merciful. One):
سُبْحَانَ اللّهِ وَ بِحَمْدِهِ ، سُبْحَانَ اللّهِ الْعَظِيمِ - SubhanAllahi wa biHamdihi, Subhan-Allahi 'l-`adheem (Glory be to Allah, and Praise, Glory be to Allah, the Supreme)”
(📚Bhukari , Muslim)

Can you imagine how much your reward will be multiplied if you share this information about the virtue of this remembrance with your friends and they keep saying it (SubhanAllah wa bihamdihi SubhanAllah Al Adheem) because you guided them to do?

“The One Who Guides Others to Good Deeds is Like the One Who Does Them”

The Sahabah asked the Prophet about the buildings of Paradise and he replied with a wonderful description: “Bricks of gold and silver, and mortar of fragrant musk, pebbles of pearl and sapphire, and soil of saffron. Whoever enters it is filled with joy and will never feel miserable; he will live there forever and never die; their clothes will never wear out and their youth will never fade.”

[Sourced from Ahmad, at-Tirmidhi, ad-Daarimee according to]

Following are some acts that we can perform in the last days of Ramadan in shaa Allah.

1.Recite the Qur’an abundantly

Laylatul Qadr is the night the Qur’an was revealed so we should spend much of the night reciting it.

2. Strive to gain forgiveness:

One should strive and do their utmost to gain the mercy of Allah especially in the odd numbered nights of the last ten days.

The main Dua for Laylatul Qadr is the following:

Aisha (Ra) said: “I asked the Messenger of Allah: ‘O Messenger of Allah, if I know what night is the night of Qadr, what should I say during it?’ He said: ‘Say: O Allah, You are pardoning and You love to pardon, so pardon me.’ “

“Allahumma innaka ‘afuwwun tuhibbul ‘afwa fa’fu ‘annee” (Ahmad, Ibn Majah, and Tirmidhi).

Gaining forgiveness on laylatul Qadr

Abu Huraira narrated that the Messenger said: “Whoever stands (in prayer) in Laylatul Qadr while nourishing his faith with self-evaluation, expecting reward from Allah, will have all of his previous sins forgiven.” (Bukhari and Muslim).

We should sincerely repent for past and present sins with the intention of not repeating them again and ask of Allah Ta’aala to help us prevent ourselves from doing them again and ask Allah to perfect our characters and to help us improve ourselves in everyway possible.

3. Do pray Nafil

4. Increase the Dhikr of Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala)

We should glorify Allah night and day, especially in the last nights.

Here are some easy and very beneficial Dhikr and glorification we can do throughout the last ten odd nights:

1. Allahumma innaka ‘afuwwun tuhibbul ‘afwa fa’fu ‘annee

2. Subhanallah

3. Alhamdulillah

4. Allahu Akbar

5. Laa ilaha ilallah


7. Asthaghfirullah


9. Subhāna-llāhi, wa-l-hamdu li-llāhi, wa lā ilāha illā-llāhu, wa-llāhu akbar. Wa lā hawla wa lā quwwata illā bi-llāhi-l-aliyyi-l-azīm

10. Lā ilāha illā-llāhu waḥdahu lā sharīka lahu lahu-l-mulku wa lahu-l-ḥamdu yuhyi wa yumītu wa huwa ḥayyu-llā yamūtu abadan abada, ḏū-l-jalāli wa-l-ikrām, biyadihi-l-khayr, wa huwa alā kulli Shay-in qadīr

Or the shortened version:

11. Laa ilaaha illal-laahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu wa huwa ‘alaa kulli shay-in qadeer

One can also recite the durood that one recites in one’s Salaah or a Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallim

5.  Make Dua:

We should be very busy in making dua as much possible and especially in the lastdays of Ramadan.

“The most execellent worship is Dua” (Sahih Al=Jami no. 1133)

Therefore let us devote much of the night of Qadr in dua asking of Allah for his mercy and forgiveness for all of our past sins and making firm intentions to Allah that we will change for the better and strive to become closer to him as well as make our deen a FULL part of our lives and not just a little part of our life.

6. Do good with people for the sake of Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala.

7. Offer iftar to fasting person and you will get the same reward
Zaid bin Khalid Al-Juhani (RadhiAllaho anho) reported:
The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said,“He who provides a fasting person something with which to break his fast, will earn the same reward as the one who was observing the fast, without diminishing in any way the reward of the latter.” [At-Tirmidhi].

8. Give charity if possible
9. Share this message so others can also benefit from this and you will be rewarded in shaa Allah May Allah helps us to do deeds that will please Him Ameen

He is waiting for you to return to Him

Don’t let your sins weigh you down. And don’t let them be the cause of you despairing from the mercy of Allah.

Know that Allah will always be there waiting for you with His infinite Mercy and forgiveness even if you slip and fall again and again.

In a hadith it is mentioned that Allah stretches out His hand during the day so that the sinners of the night can repent and He stretches His hand during the night so that the sinners of the day can repent. And Allah will continue to stretch His hand during the day and night until the sun rises from the west.

Subhanallah, how much more beautiful can that get?

He does not need anyone, He does not need our worship, His Greatness does not increase by the whole of mankind worshipping Him. And yet, this Allah is more happier when His servant, when the likes of you and i, make tawbah to Him than a man who found his lost camel.

The biggest blessing is that Allah is our Lord. Because wallahi, who has this much love? He has billions of angels praising Him and prostrating to Him day and night, and yet, He is happy when we repent to Him.

Is this not a Lord worthy of worship? Indeed He is.

So turn to Him. For He loves you and He loves to hear your voice. Even if you’ve never worshipped Allah your whole life but you just decided to turn to Him just this once, He will accept your repentence and surround you with His Mercy.

A beautiful hadith Qudsi:

“O My slave, if you came to Me with an earthload of sins, not associating any partners with Me, I will come to you with an earthload of forgiveness.”
