The last 10 days of Ramadhan

Assalamualaikum and Peace be upon all of you.
Welcome to my blog.


Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka! Yes, we already celebrate the Merdeka Day. For the Muslims, please take note that we still in the month of Ramadhan, which means fasting month. The month is nearing its end and we currently in the last 10 days of Ramadhan. Our beloved Prophet has always reminded us to double our Ibadah and contribution in this period of time.

The last 10 days also the time where Allah gave us, the follower of Prophet Muhammad a special gift that he never gave to the followers before us, The Night of Lailatul Qadar. A special night where any Ibadah and Contribution done in this night will be rewarded a goodness equivalent to 1000 months!! How many is it? Here a simple mathematics.

We have 12 months in a year, thus 1000 divide by 12 is equal too = 83.333 years!

Just imagine a goodness rewarded by Allah is equivalent to 83 years of Ibadah! Even if we ever live more than 83 years, its not be same because we’re also do anything else other than Ibadah. This is 83 years fully Ibadah that we are talking about.

The sign of Lailatul Qadar

The night is bright, not hot, not cold, no rain, no wind, and no shooting star. The morning air is quite and tranquil. And the morning sunlight is not as bright as always.

When is the Lailatul Qadar?

Up until know, the time of Lailatul Qadar is remain a secret. No one knows when the exact time but the Prophet Muhammad has asked for us to search for the night by ourselves. It is among the last 10 days of Ramadhan, on the night of odd numbers.

Common misconception

In malay tradition, it is asked for us to light the Pelita in the last several nights of Ramadhan known as the “Malam Tujuh Likur”. It is said to welcome the Angels in the night of Lailatul Qadar. Actually, it is not true. During Lailatul qadar, we are supposed to be doing Ibadah.


So, here I give my advice to all of us. If we wanted to light up the Pelita, go ahead. But please make sure that Malam Tujuh Likur is a Malay tradition and not an Islamic Practices. So, if you wanted to do it, yes you can. But not because of celebrating angels from the skies, but wanted to celebrate Hari Raya instead.

Lets us double our Ibadah in this period of time.
Until next time. (^_^)
