Last 10 Days: Itqun-Minan-Naar no Dasko & Aakhir Jumoa

شهر الله نا چهيلا دس دن نا عمل – عتق من النار نو دسكو

25 June 2016

The last ten days of Shehrullah are known as the ten days of ‘itqun-minan-naar (freedom from hellfire) based on the khutba of Rasulullah SA in the last days of Shabaan. In these ten days, as in Shehrullah as a whole, Mumineen are encouraged to do the following: 

1 – ROZA: Continue Shehrullah Roza.

2 NAMAAZ: Pray all five farizat namaz on time with their respective sunnat and naafilat. As Rasulullah SA has said, in Shehrullah the sawaab for praying one farizat is the equivalent of praying 70 farizat in other months and praying sunnat in Shehrullah is equivalent in sawaab to praying farizat in other months. 

    • Fajr: Sunnat 1 salaam before faraz
    • Zohr: Sunnat 3 salaams before faraz and Nafilat 2 salaams after faraz
    • Asar: Sunnat 2 salaam before faraz
    • Maghrib: Sunnat 3 salaams after faraz and 1 salaam for ‘daf’il aafaat
    • Isha: Sunnat 2 salaam before faraz and Nafilat 2 salaams after faraz 

3 –DUA:

4 –QURAN: Pray at least one sipara of Quran Majeed a day so that you can complete one full Quran in the month. Some dedicated banda-s of Allah complete one full Quran recitation every single day in Ramadan. For those who are not fluent, there are many websites which have full audio of Quran-e-Majeed so you can recite alongside the recitation. For those who cannot read the Arabic script at all, there are transliterated Quran (the Arabic Quran written in English script), which you can use until you are able to master the Arabic script.

5 –BIHORI: Pray Bihori as much as possible, especially namaaz and doa for ‘itqun-minan-naar (freedom from hellfire). Details of Bihori with accompanying translation and audios of some doas have been published here.

6 – AAKHIR JUMO’A & NABI NA NAAM

    • 29mi Shehrullah (Friday 23 June) – Before Zohr Sunnat (but after zawaal)
