Ramadhan is a month with full of blessings and rewards, though Rasulullah SAW and The Noble Companions r.a. practices reflected the special of the last ten days and nights or we call it as ‘10 malam terakhir’. As the last third of Ramadhan, this last 10 days should be utilized to put our effort to the maximum before Ramadhan sets it sail and pass by, until we meet the next Ramadhan, which nobody can ensure.
As of today, 21 Ramadhan, meaning that we have only 8 days to perform fasting in this very month of Ramadhan. As recommended by Rasulullah SAW, that this last third of Ramadhan is the ‘release from hellfire’ so we should grab this opportunity to stop committing sins and other manners lead to sin.
Actually this last third is the most challenging period of the month, because we have to fight with other big thing – Raya preparation. Beside iktikaf and reciting al-Quran , we usually focus to ‘main bunga api’, or ’shopping for raya’, or ‘pasang langsir’ or ‘buat kuih raya’.So for most people, other than overwhelming by raya preparation, they’ll go for seeking the lailatulqadar, a night that is better than 1000 months..
