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:
26mi raat Aakhir Jumoa raat (Thursday 6th) - after Isha Nafilat. For those in India, Mazoon-e-Dawat Syedi Abdeali Bhaisaheb Saifuddin AAB has graciously granted raza for programme of live broadcast of Nabi na Naam. This will begin at 7:45pm India time on Thursday and Mumineen can join via Zoom.
26mi tareekh Aakhir Jumoa no din (Friday 7th May) - at zawal, before praying zohr.
27mi raat (Friday 7th May) - after Isha Nafilat.
28mi raat (Saturday 8th May) - after Isha Nafilat.
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 (http://transliteration.org/quran/WebSite_CD/MixPure/001.asp or https://www.quran411.com/) 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.
