Second 10 Days of Shehrullah: Maghferat no Dasko

شهر الله نا بيجا دس دن نو عمل – مغفرة نو دسكو

શેહરુલ્લાહ ના બીજા દસ દિન – મગફેરત નો દસકો

शेहरूल्लाह के दूसरे दस्के (दस दिन) - मगफेरत का दस्का

26 May 2018

The second ten days of Shehrullah are known as the ten days of Maghferat based on the khutba of Rasulullah SA published here. In these ten days, Mumineen are encouraged to follow these amal details: 

  1. ROZA: Continue Shehrullah Roza
  2. NAMAAZ: Pray all five Farizat Namaaz on time with their respective Sunnat and Naafilat. As Rasulullah said, in Shehrullah the sawaab for praying one Farizat is the equivalent to 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
    • Zohr Nafilat - 2 salaams after faraz
    • Asar Sunnat - 2 salaams before faraz
    • Maghrib Sunnat - 3 salaams after faraz and 1 salaam for ‘daf’il aafaat’
    • Isha Sunnat - 2 salaams before faraz
    • Isha Nafilat - 2 salaams after faraz
  3. Amal Details and wasila recordings for faazil raato are published here.

  4. DOA: 
  5. 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.
  6. BIHORI:  Pray Bihori as much as possible, especially namaaz and doa for Maghferat-uz-zunoob (forgiveness of sins).
    • A step by step guide to praying Bihori with accompanying translation and audios of some doas have been published here.
