Only a few days left until Eid-ul-fitr. But have we really fill-up our Ramadan to the fullest? These last few days should be filled with more ibadahs and reading the Qur’an (along with understanding it).
Note that: The Prophet(s.a.w) used to strive hard in worship during the last ten days of Ramadan in a way that he did not strive at any other times.
I came across this article, but couldn’t find the link to it.
(al-Bukhaari, 1074). It was also reported (in Saheeh al-Bukhaari) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to wake ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) when he wanted to pray Witr. (al-Bukhaari, 952). But when he woke his wives during the last ten nights of Ramadaan, this was more persistent than at other times of the year.
The fact that he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did this indicates the importance he attached to worshipping his Lord and making the most of this special time.
The Muslim should follow the example of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), for he is the best example, and he should strive hard in worshipping Allaah. He should not waste the hours of these days and nights. For we do not know, perhaps this time will never come again, for the spoiler of pleasures, i.e., death, which must come to all men, may come and snatch him and his life will end; then he will feel regret at the time when regret will be of no avail.
Good luck with Laylat al-Qadr! insyaAllah.
