Ramadan is the 9th and one of the most blessed months of Islamic Calendar. The blessed month of Ramadan is observed by Muslims worldwide as an act of fasting to commemorate the revelation of the Quran on Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) as per Islamic dogmas. The ritual of fasting among Muslims redirects the heart away from worldly activities to purify the soul by freeing it from negative and harmful activities. Ramadan is the best practice for self-improvement, self-control, discipline, and empathy to encourage charity towards the less fortunate ones.
The rewards that a Muslim can reap in the blessed month of Ramadan are diversified and the chance to commit a sin decreased because no barriers can exist between man and his Lord in the holy month of Ramadan. The blessings of this holy month are countless and it is divided into three stages i.e. Ashra (ten days each). The word Ashra is an Arabic word which means “ten”. Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said: “It (Ramadan) is the month, whose beginning is mercy, its middle, forgiveness, and its end, release from the fire of hell.”
Last 10 days of Ramadan that is third Ashra is the most important and superior to the previous two Ashras of Ramadan. Third Ashra of Ramadan starts from 21st and ends 29th or 30th of Ramadan. Lailatul Qadr falls in the third Ashra of Ramadan which is better than the nights of thousand months. Muslims try to maximize their prayers during last ten 10 days of Ramadan as they are most blessed days of this holy month.
