Final ashra of Ramadan starts

22 Sep

Ramadan is divided into three ten-days parts, or Ashra (Arabic for ten). They are named:-

  1. Rahmat (Mercy of God!
  2. Maghfirat (Forgiveness of God)
  3. Najat (Salvation) respectively.

Laylat ul-Qadr which falls during the last Ashra, commemorates the revelation of the first verse of the Holy Quran and is considered the most holy night of the year.

In Quran Allah describes Lailat aul Qadr in 97th

Surah-al Qadr in such words:-

“1.Undoubtedly, We sent it down in the blessed and valuable night.
2.And what you know, what the blessed night is?
3.The blessed and valuable Night is better than a thousand months.
4.Therein descend angels and Jibril (the Spirit) by the command of their Lord for every affair.
5.That is all peace till the rising of the dawn.”

Already we are in the final Ashra (ten days) of Ramadan. And last night was the first “Takk Raat” night of 21, 22, 23, 25, 27 and 29th Ramadan. Lailat ul-Qadr is one of these first nights. But nobody knows which one. So each should be given equal attention and importance and yesterday was the first of the them, a night which is better than a thousand months. So watch out for the next one, and try to make most out of this final Ashra.

Ramadan Mubarak everyone once again!
