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 


  • Do tasbeeh of salawaat on Anbiyaa’ SA (Nabi na naam) and pray two rak’ats for “ibtighaa’ al-Fadl was sawaab” after nabi na naam the following times:
    • 27mi raat Shehrullah (Thursday 30 May) – After Isha Nafilaat
    • 27mi Shehrullah (Friday 31 May) – Before Zohr Sunnat (but after zawaal)
    • 28mi raat (Friday 31 May) to 30mi raat Shehrullah (Sunday 2 June) – After Isha Nafilaat

  • Doa of Imam Ali Zainul Aabideen SA after Fajr namaaz (Dawat ni Zaban, English translations and audio/video recording of Syedna Fakhruddin TUS reciting this doa available).  
  • Doa after Zohor nafilat (English translation and audio available)

  • Allahumma ya mu’tiy as su’aalaat after Maghrib Namaaz, before iftaar (Dawat ni Zaban, English translations and audio recording available)

6 –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.

7 –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.
