Here´s a peek at one of my pages for the new Spera volume, written by Josh Tierney, designs by Afu Chan, and published by Archaia. I did one of the chapters of 24 pages, and the others are done by some truly amazing artists. It was a privilege to be a part of this.
We’ve entered the last 10 days of Ramadan so make sure to make every one of them count!
Here are some things you can do:
wake up in the last 1/3 of the night and pray tahajjud (night prayers. 2+ rakaas)
read/memorize parts of the Quran
watch Islamic lectures
ask for forgiveness (Allahumma innaka afuyyun tuhibbul afwa fa afu anna)
dhikr (repeat subhanallah, Allahu akbar, alhamdulillah many times)
If you don’t think you can do that, here are some easier things you can do:
say Surat al-Ikhlas 3x. It counts as reading the entire Quran
say the above forgiveness duaa 10x
pat yourself on the back and go back to sleep
These last days are super important because Laylatul Qadr (Night of Decree) falls on one of the days. It was the night that the Quran was first revealed. There are unimaginable blessings in this night and this single day could singlehandedly save your hereafter. So don’t miss out!
May we reach the end of Ramadan in the best state of iman (faith).
