In Ramadan, whosever performs a good deed, is like one who performs a farizat in other months. - Rasulullah SA
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
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.
