LAST ASHRA OF HOLY RAMADAN

Ramadan Umrah Last ten nights

Every moment of Holy Ramadan is very precious and special, however, the last ten days (Last Ashra) of Holy Ramadan hold a special and prominent place in the heart of every Muslims and the last Ashra of Holy Ramadan are respected and celebrated in the most honourable manner. Muslim can make the most out of the last Ashra of Holy Ramadan. Holy Ramadan is the most sacred and Holiest of Months in the Islamic calendar.

It is the month in which Shaitan is chained and many uncountable blessings and mercy showers upon all those Muslims who seek it by praising and worshiping ALLAH Almighty in the days of Holy Ramadan. Therefore, the last Ashra of Holy Ramadan leave not a single room for being a lazy and sloth, rather, these are the blessed days in which a person with fasting starts praying and worshiping with greater dedication and intensity. Two most common ways through which these days can be utilized in the best possible way are discussed below.

 Recitation of Holy Quran:

Muslim can earn many blessings in the last ten days of Holy Ramadan is to recite Holy Quran abundantly. The recitation of Holy Quran brings numerous blessings and rewards for reciting every single word. However, it is best for Muslim to understand Holy Quran with translation. The recitation of Holy Quran brings huge reward.

However, the recitation of Holy Quran with translation helps a person in understanding the message and essence, which the verses of Holy Quran convey to humanity. Ergo, in the last Ashra Muslims should recite more and more Holy Quran and also read the translation so that meanings of verses become more clear and evident and a person finds the real message of truth and assistance and guidance in Holy Ramadan.

Observing Aitikaf:

The greatest Sunnah of last Ashra of Holy Ramadan is the observance of Aitikaf. It is in the last ten days of Ramadan that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) would go into privacy and seclusion and spend the last Ashra of Holy Ramadan in prayer and worship of ALLAH Almighty with minimal intrusion or human interaction. In Aitikaf Muslims spends all of their time in worshipping ALLAH Almighty to ensure that He grants blessings and forgiveness to the seeker.

In the last Ashra of Ramadan Muslims must observe Aitikaf, setting all the worldly matters, intrusions and routine aside for ten days and spend all the precious moments of Holy Ramadan in praising and worshipping ALLAH Almighty. No one knows whether they will be alive to see the next Holy Ramadan or not, therefore, a Muslim should try to observe Aitikaf and spent these days in the best manner to bid great farewell to this Holy Month of Ramadan.

ACT OF CHARITY, WORSHIP AND SUPPLICATION

zakat

Muslims must give 2.5% of their yearly savings to help the poor, the oppressed and the needy. This act of devotion acknowledges that all wealth comes from ALLAH Almighty and purifies the soul from all the worldly material greed. In adding up, Islam encourages voluntary acts of charity, be they physical or monetary. A well-known tradition states, ‘Smiling is charity.’

Muslims supplicate to and address ALLAH Almighty directly for their needs and desires anywhere and anytime. This direct relationship is a necessary element of worship (Ibadah) in Islam. Whether asking for direction, seeking solace or beseeching ALLAH Almighty for forgiveness, Muslims reach out to ALLAH Almighty at any time, without an intermediary. Nothing is a mere formality in responsibility Islam. Even the usual wishing ‘Assalamu Alaikum’ has a message and significance.

Fasting is not an only formality that every Muslim has to observe but we should examine it with heart and soul so that ALLAH Almighty gives the essential changes in our hearts thoughts, lives. It would be better if the honorable Islamic Ulema request all mosques to inform proper education on daily prayers so that Muslims pray correctly and their prayers do not go a waste. They also need to explain the finest ways of independent learning of Namaz so that Muslims correct themselves. .

 Ramadan
Muslims fast during the Holy Month of Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, by abstaining from eating, drinking etc acts from dawn to sunset. Fasting installs self-restraint, provides strengthens and spiritual cleansing and one’s willpower. While fasting, Muslims strive to boost charitable acts and control bad habits such foul and abusive language, gossip and anger.

 Holy Hajj: The voyage and attainment of a Lifetime- not every year affair

The Hajj pilgrimage to Makkah should be performed by every Muslim once in their life if they are financially and physically able. It symbolizes the unity of humanity as Muslims from every race; nationality and social status bring together in equality to worship ALLAH Almighty, following the traditions of Hazrat Ibraheem (AS). The two Eid festivals mark significant sacred days for Muslims.

Eid-ul-Fitar is celebrated at the completion of Holy Ramadan while Eid-ul-Azha falls during the days of Hajj. Both occasions start with a congregational prayer (Namaz) and a sermon; these are followed by celebratory meals, gift-giving and socializing. Every Muslim has a right to know and practice genuine Islamic worship. When mosques take the duty of imparting Islamic worship (Ibadah), including prayers in detail, Muslims would learn the prayers correctly and confidently.

When Muslims make Masjids the center of their life activities the class of their life would change significantly for the better and much better. As more and proper Muslims come to mosques the fake ones who make use of them for personal benefits alone would remove themselves from Masjid.

ETIQUETTES OF VISITING MAKKAH AND MADINA

Makkah

Makkah and Madina are 2 sanctuaries of Islam. These cities are the most sacred cities for all Muslims. Unluckily, because of the ignorance or just plain carelessness, many Muslims visiting the holy cities do not observe correct manners. Excellent manners are necessary part of the Islamic Faith. This etiquette is universal and should be exhibited by each and every Muslim everywhere at all times. Though, in Makkah and Madina they should be extra diligent in showing dignity and respect in their behaviour.

A great number of booklets and books exist, in nearly all languages of the globe, about the rituals to be performed in city Makkah and Madina. Some of these books explain in detail the various tasks and activities of Umrah and Hajj. Many others outline countless Dua (supplications) and Quranic verses (ayats) suitable during Tawaaf (circumambulation) of Holy Kaaba. People have spent a huge deal of time and effort compiling duas for each and every little act of worship. Duas have been outlined for someone entering in Masjid-al-Haram or when performing Sa’ee (walk between Safa and Marwa hills).

People have also written books on the rituals of city Madina outlining the number and manner or behaviour of prayers to be conducted in Masjid-e-Nabawi even telling which part of the masjid to pray in. Other books describe how to act upon entering in graveyard of jannat-ul-Baqee and other places to visit while staying in Madinah. Even though such wealth of information exists about the rites and rituals, sadly, very few books pressure decorum while in the sacred cities of Islam. In addition, pilgrim escorts and guide also focus first and foremost on rituals. Many media outlets such as radio and television programs provide information for pilgrims but the focus is on the acts that should be performed and the readings to accompany them. Very slight is said about the manners required in Makkah and Madina.

There is a huge need for educating Muslims visiting Makkah and Madina to behave and act in a respectful manner. Additionally, the unfortunate reality is that an overwhelming majority of Muslim countries are usually under developed. The literacy rate in most of the Muslim countries is quite low. So, when pilgrims come to Makkah and Madina, they bring with them the similar unrefined manner of behaviour so general in such countries.

Unfortunately, our pilgrims have missed the teachings of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as well. For prayers to be accepted by ALLAH Almighty, it is Islam’s requirement that the body, the dress and the place should be clean (TAHARAH).

Likewise, good behaviour is a necessary requirement if we want our prayers are to be accepted. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) forbade pushing or jumping over people in order to make space for another person to pray.

HAJJ AND UMRAH PILGRIMAGE ARE GIFTS OF ALLAH ALMIGHTY

Hajj

If there is much good in the 5 Obligatory every day Prayers in which the Muslims gather 5 times a day, we will find much good in performing Hajj which takes place once every year and umrah that is performed throughout the year. Accordingly, calling people to goodness is more during Hajj and Umrah, because pilgrims come from far-away places. Similarly, women are required to exert themselves to guide their Muslim sisters to what ALLAH Almighty has taught them. Therefore, men should guide pilgrims who come to Al-Bait and to visit the Masjid-e-Nabwi.

Women must guide her brothers and sisters performing Umrah and Hajj by telling them whatever she knows. This is what Muslims must do during Hajj and Umrah; they must cooperate with each other, guide to all that is excellent, and prevent damage wherever those performing Hajj and Umrah are present, whether in Masjid-Al-Haram or outside it, and during Tawaaf (circumambulation), Saaee, and all rituals of Umrah. Each person must be keen on bringing all that benefits their brothers and keeping damage away from them all over the nation and during all rituals of Umrah, hoping for ALLAH’S reward. They should be aware of the consequences of being unfair and harmful to others. This is implied by the following Ayah of Quran 3:96:

Indeed, the first House [of worship] established for mankind was that at Makkah – blessed and guidance for the worlds.

It is full of blessings and guidance to all human beings because of the much good granted to the visitors of Holy Kaaba when they perform Tawaaf (circumambulation) and Saaee and say Talbiyah and Adhkar, which guide them to Tawheed and obedience of ALLAH Almighty. Therefore, they are guided to Al-Haqq by virtue of the reality that they come to know each other and advise and meet each other.

That is why it is described as full of guidance and blessings because it brings blessings and much excellent to its visitors by means of Talbiyah, Adhkar, and acts of submission that inform the Servants of their Lord and Tawhid and remind them of their duties towards ALLAH Almighty and His Messenger Prophet (PBUH) and towards those performing Umrah and Hajj, concerning advising them, cooperating with them, recommending them to hold fast to Al-Haqq, comforting the needy and poor and offering assist in all charitable ways of disposition. Those performing Hajj and Umrah should prepare themselves to be helpful to their brothers and be keen on doing well and preventing evil.

Verse 64:16 of Holy Quran;

So fear ALLAH as much as you are able and listen and obey and spend [in the way of ALLAH]; it is better for your selves. And whoever is protected from the stinginess of his soul – it is those who will be the successful.
