  1. really wonderful, alhamdulillah.
    I am requesting author to write more and more articles regarding planning and time management.
    which are very beneficial for students, who are balancing their education and Deen.

  2. May Allah forgive our sins and strengthen our Iman and may he give us the night of Laylatul Quadr. Ameen keep up the good work productive Muslim and may Allah inspire you always.

  3. Jazak’Allah Khayran for your article. I would strongly advise you read into the authenticity of Salaatul Tasbeeh. There is no authentic hadith relating to it. The only hadith there is is extremely weak and considered fabricated. Before you share knowledge with others, please verify it’s credibility, as you will be responsible for those who follow it.

    Barak’Allah Feek

  4. Asalaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahe wa Barakaatuhu, Br. Farrukh Paasha,

    My name is Jawid Anjaz in Seattle, WA. I was reading the article you posted on productivemuslim.com and came across some points that I would like to discuss with you and others who read the article or have already read the article. MashaAllah, you have done a great job of organizing the time how to do ebaadah in these last 10 days of Ramadhan.

    However, sometimes when we think of rewards, we get excited and try to help people or remind people to do some acts of worship in order for them to benefit and obviously automatically we get reward for any act someone would do because we helped them or reminded them, inshaAllah.

    In the process, sometimes we either don’t pay attention or forget to make sure what we are recommending or relaying to others is authentic and this is the most dangerous part. And the reason for that is that if someone takes what we give them and implements that in his life and acts upon it, two things can happen.

    One, if the information is authentic and agreed upon by the scholars and the ummah, we get the reward for it every time they do the act.

    Second, if we did not pay attention and do a good homework before conveying the message whether the information I am relaying is authentic or not, we will get the sin for it every time the person does what we recommended them to do. May Allah save us from that, ameen.

    Coming to the points I want to share with you and all other brothers and sisters. I just wanted to focus on two things. Salaatul Tasbih and the hadith about fardh is multiplied 70 times and nafl becomes fardh.

    First of all, Salaatul Tasbih has no basis in Islam. Please read below to understand better:

    The scholars (may Allah have mercy on them) differed as to whether Salaat al-Tasbeeh is prescribed in Islam. The reason for this difference of opinion concerning it is the difference of opinion concerning the soundness of the hadeeth which speaks of it. The prominent scholars are of the view that it is da‘eef (weak).

    1. Ibn Qudaamah (may Allah have mercy on him) said in al-Mughni (1/438):

    With regard to Salaat al-Tasbeeh, Ahmad said: I do not like it. It was said to him: Why? He said: There is nothing saheeh about it, and he waved his hand as if dismissing it. End quote.

    2. al-Nawawi (may Allah have mercy on him) said in al-Majmoo‘ Sharh al-Muhadhdhab (3/547-548):

    al-Qaadi Husayn, and the authors of al-Tahdheeb and al-Tatimmah said: Salaat al-Tasbeeh is mustahabb, because of the hadeeth narrated concerning it. But this view of it as mustahabb is subject to further discussion, because the hadeeth in question is da‘eef (weak), and it involves changing the regular format of the prayer, so it should not be done without a hadeeth (to support it). Al-Tirmidhi said: More than one hadeeth was narrated from the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) concerning Salaat al-Tasbeeh, but not many of them are saheeh. And al-‘Aqeeli said: There is no proven hadeeth about Salaat al-Tasbeeh. End quote.

    3. Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said in Majmoo‘ al-Fataawa (11/579):

    The best of the reports narrated about these prayers is the hadeeth about Salaat al-Tasbeeh, which was narrated by Abu Dawood and al-Tirmidhi, but nevertheless none of the four imams spoke of it; in fact, Ahmad regarded the hadeeth as da‘eef, and these prayers are not mustahabb.

    4. Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him) said in Majmoo‘ Fataawa Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (14/327):

    What seems more likely to be correct in my opinion is that Salaat al-Tasbeeh is not sunnah, and that the hadeeth about it is da‘eef. This is for several reasons:

    (i) The basic principle concerning acts of worship is that they are disallowed unless there is proven evidence that they are prescribed.

    (ii) The hadeeth is mudtarib (weak); there is a difference of opinion concerning it for several reasons.

    (iii) None of the imams regarded it as mustahabb.

    (iv) If this prayer was prescribed, the ummah would have narrated a report concerning which there was no doubt and it would have been well known among them because of its great benefit. Moreover, it is not like any other act of worship, because there is no act of worship in which so much choice is given that it may be done once every day, or once in a week, or once in a month, or once in a year, or once in a lifetime. Because the weak hadeeth states that it is of great benefit and because it is not like any other act of worship, yet it is not well known and was not transmitted, we know that there is no basis for it, because if an act of worship is different from other acts of worship, and if it were of great benefit, people would pay attention to it and transmit it, and it would be popular and well known. Because that is not the case with regard to this prayer, we know that it is not prescribed. Hence none of the imams regarded it as mustahabb, as Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said. Among the naafil acts which are proven to be prescribed in Islam there is a great deal of goodness and barakah for the one who wants more, so he should be content with that which is proven, and he has no need of that which is the subject of differences of opinion and doubts. End quote.

    The Standing Committee was asked about Salaat al-Tasaabeeh, and they answered:

    Salaat al-Tasaabeeh is a bid’ah (innovation) and the hadeeth concerning it is not proven, rather it is munkar. Some of the scholars mentioned it among the mawdoo’ (fabricated) ahaadeeth.

    See Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, vol. 8, p. 163

    On this basis, people should not do this prayer. And Allah knows best.

    As for the hadith about the 70 times reward, I would like to mention that it is a weak hadith and if you want to learn more, please study the hadith and inshaAllah you will find that the hadith is very weak and not good to recommend others to know something that is not approved and base their belief on it.

    I hope I have not offended anyone. If so, please forgive me and if you want to discuss the matter further with more info you may have, please do not hesitate to contact me any time.

    May Allah (SWT) make us among those who cling to the rope of Allah through authentic sources and may He save us from Bid’ah (Innovation) because prophet (SAW) says that all matters of innovation have an ending of the Hell Fire.

    Wa salaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahe wa barakaatuhu

    • aslkm.jazakallah khair for this useful mssg.It really made sense.One more qstn tht whn we can read witr aftr tarwaeeh r aftr tahajjud ,nd hw mny rakats of witr??

      • Asalaamu alaikum. Yes you can read witr after Taraweeh or after Witr. Men should pray Witr with congregation after Taraweeh but there is no harm to read witr anytime before Fajr.

        But women who pray at home should delay the witr until end of the night just before Fajr. The number of rakahs in Witr depends on the Madhab you follow. In the Hanafi Madhab which I follow we pray 3 Rakah Witr.

        Please let me know if you need anything else.

    • Mashallah. Jazaak Allah khair for the information. I was wondering about these two things and I’m glad to know the answers.

  5. Excellent article masha’Allah; May Allah reward you…jazakallah khairan for the reminder about salat al tasabeeh -forgot about this subhanAllah- Allahuma baleghna laylatul-Qadr…

  6. As salam Alaikoum Djazak Allah khayran for this article. The Planning is very helpful. Barak Allah fiki wa salam Alaikoum.

  7. The hadith regarding Salaatul Tasbih is narrated on the authority of Ikrimah that Ibn Abbas, may Allah be pleased with them both, said that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah exalt his mention, said to the Al-Abbas b. Abdul-Muttalib: ‘O Abbas, My uncle! Shall I not give you, inform you, of something that if you are to do it, Allah would forgive all your sins, its past and present, its intentional and unintentional, its minor and major, its private and public? Pray four Rakat, in each read al-fatihah, and another surat…after you finish reciting (in the first rakat) say, while you are standing, SUBHANALLAH, AL-HAMDULILAH, LAILAHAHILLAALLAH, ALLAHU AKBAR 15 times, then make rukoo and say it 10 times, then go down to sujood and say it ten times in your sujood, then raise your head from the sujood and say it ten times, then make sujood and say it ten times, then raise your head and say it ten times…that is 75 in each rakaat, do it in all four rakaat. If you can pray this prayer every day then do it, but if you cannot then do it once a week, if you cannot than once every month, then if you cannot then once a year, if you cannot then once in a lifetime.’ (this is in the meaning of the hadeeth).   

    This hadeeth is Saheeh (authentic li-ghairihi) and is narrated in Abu Dawood (1297), Ibn Majah (1387) al-Haakim (1-308). Al-Haafidth ibn Hajar said, ‘And in the narration of At-Tabrani: even if your sins were as the foam of the sea, or as much as the sand, Allah would forgive you…’ 

    Abu Bakr b. Abi Dawood said that he heard his father say, ‘There is nothing in the Tasbeeh prayer more authentic than this hadeeth.’ 

    Imam Muslim said, ‘There is no hadeeth with a better chain of narrators in this matter other than this…’ (i.e. Ibn Abbas narration). 

    The second hadeeth, which is also authentic (Saheeh li-ghairihi) is narrated on the authority of Abi Rafi’…it to is similar to the above (in its wording). This narration was narrated by Ibn Majah, at-Tirmidthi, Ad’daar-Qutni, and al-Baihaqi. 

    Al-Baihaqi said, that Abdullah b. al-Mubarak used to pray the Tasbeeh prayer, this prayer was handed (to us) by the pious predecessors, and from this, the above hadeeth gains extra strength…! 

    At-Tirmidthi said, ‘this is a ghareeb hadeeth from the narration of Abi Rafi’ he then said, ‘Ibn al-Mubarak used to practice it, and other people of knowledge used to practice it also, and they mentioned its merits.’ Of those who corrected (authenticated) the above hadeeth:- 

    1. Abu Dawood, 

    2. Ibn Mundah, 

    3. Al-Aajari, 

    4. As-Sum’aani, 

    5. al-Madini, 

    6. al-Mundthiri, 

    7. Abul-Hasan al-Mundthiri, 

    8. Ibn As-Salaah, 

    9. Ad-Dailami, 

    10. Al-Haakim, 

    11. Al-A’laali, 

    12. Az-Zurkashi, 

    13. Al-Muhaamili, 

    14. Abul-Hasan al-Muqdasi, 

    15. al-Juwaini, 

    16. Al-Baghawi, 

    17. Ar-Ra’fiee’, 

    18. Al-Haitami, 

    19. As-Su’youti, 

    20. Al-Luknawwi, 

    21. Ibn Aa’bideen, 

    22. Al-Albani and others… 

    There is a third hadeeth which too is authentic and is narrated by Ahmed, At-Tirmidthi (who stated this narration as Hasan), an-Nasa’i, ibn Khuzaimah, and Ibn Hibban in their Saheeh collections, and al-Haakim, said that is authentic according to the conditions set by Muslim. 

    This narration is on the authority of Anas b. Maalik, may Allah be pleased with him, that Umm Sulaim asked the Prophet, may Allah exalt his mention, ‘teach me a few words that I may say them in my prayer. He said, ‘Say Allahu Akbar 10 times, Say Subhanallah ten times, Say Al-Humdulilah ten times, then pray as much as you want…’ (in its meaning). 

    Al-Albani, may Allah have mercy on him, said: The main hadeeth on which the Tasbeeh prayer is based on is the hadeeth of Ibn Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, (the first Hadeeth I mentioned). 

    I have returned back to the original books were Sheik Muhammad Naasir ad-Deen al-Albani, may Allah have mercy on him, authenticated the ahadeeth (pl. Hadeeth) which concern the Tasbeeh prayer…such as Abu Dawood, Ibn Majah, At-Targheeb and at-Tarheeb.

    To summarize this altogether, there are authentic hadeeth which concern the Tasbeeh prayer and other Hadeeth which are weak. 

    So from the above, no one can call the one who practices the Tasbeeh prayer a man of bid’ah, nor the prayer itself a bid’ah practice…Subhanallah! 

    An argument which may be heard from those who deny this prayer is: ‘Now somebody might say to you…’look brother although the hadeeth is Saheeh, none of the Salaf (pious predecessors) practiced it.’ 

    The answer to this is that if the hadeeth is authentic, we should immediately put it into practice regardless of the fact if somebody did it before you or not…the proof of this is as follows:

    Imam ash-Shafi’ee said in his book ‘Ar-Risalah’:  Umar b. Al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, used to rule that the diyah (blood money) for the thumb, was 15 camels; but when he found the letter of Aal-Amr b. Hazm, and in which a hadeeth was mentioned: ‘For every finger there are 10 camels.’

    He immediately put this hadeeth into practice… Imam Ash-Shafi’ee said, ‘They didn’t practice what was in the letter of Aal-Hazm until it was affirmed that it was an authentic letter from the Prophet, may Allah exalt his mention.’

    Al-Albani, may Allah have mercy on him, said: ‘From this hadeeth we take two very important things, that we should accept the hadeeth once it is deemed authentic, even if nobody practiced it before you…’ 

    Besides this…it has been authentically reported that some of the Salaf practiced it, such as Ibn al-Mubarak! 

    Secondly, if you put this hadeeth into practice, which is regarded by some as bid’ah you would be reviving a Sunnah of the Prophet, may Allah exalt his mention, and whoever revives a Sunnah of the Prophet, would receive its reward and the reward of whomever practices it till the Day of Resurrection….Allahu Akbar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

  8. SubhanAllah :D JazakAllah Khair :) but the only problem here is that fajr is at 2:00 and ther is no time for tahajud :( cus iftar is at 9:10 ish and so after cleaning up, the time is about 10:10 then after some break we pray tarawih and extrah naafil prayers, then its about half 12ish, then we gotta cook for sehri then that’s it.

    • Asalaamu Alaikum sister. There is always time if we make preperations beforehand. What you need to do is to prepare the Iftaar food and cutlery etc for Suhoor earlier on in the day so that you can prepare it quickly when the time comes and then put it away again when the time is over.

      Start praying Taraweeh at 10:30 and by 12 you can read some Qur’an with tafseer until 12:30. Then pray Tahajjud pray from 12:30 to 1:00. Then prepare and serve Suhoor. Leave the dishes until after Fajr so you can make Dua from 01:30 until Fajr as Duas at that time are readily accepted insha’Allah

    Islam Q&A

  10. Assalamu alaikum!!!! jazak Allaahu khayran brother for this excellent article!!! :D Allaahu akbar!! keep sharing your articles with us :)

  11.  The ruling regarding Salat-ut-Tasbeeh is that it is permissible and, in fact, very meritorious.

    The Hadith in question has been accepted as Sahih (authentic) or Hasan (sound) by various eminent Masters of Hadith. Those that claimed that it was weak did so on the basis of a few chains of the narration.

    However, if all the various chains be gathered, there will remain no doubt as to its authenticity.Hafiz ibn Hajar al-Asqalaani (RA) states that sometimes a Muhaddith classifies a certain Hadith as weak, very weak or even as a fabrication based on one or two chains that were available to him, whereas there may be other chains through which that Hadith may be classified as Hasan (sound) or even Sahih (authentic). (Anukat vol.2 pg.848-850)

    Hafiz ibn Hajar (RA) then mentions the Hadith of Salat-ut-Tasbeeh as an example for this and he accepts it to be in fact either Sahih (authentic) or Hasan (sound) and not Dha’eef (weak). (Ibid)

    Imaam Tirmidhi (RA) says that many Ulama, among them Imaam Abdullah ibn al-Mubaarak (RA), have accepted the virtue of Salat-ut-Tasbeeh. (Tirmidhi vol.2 pg.348; Hadith 481)

    Imaam Bayhaqi (RA) states that ‘ Salat-ut-Tasbeeh was the practice of Abdullah ibn al-Mubaarak and may pious predecessors of various eras. And this in fact lends strength to its acceptability.’ (Shu’ubul Imaam vol.1 pg.427; Ilmiyyah)

    Allaamah Munzhiri (RA) mentions: Many Muhadditheen have accepted it’s authority from among them are: 1) Imaam Abu-bakr al-Ajurriy, 2) Imaam Abu Muhammad al-Misriy (Ustaadh of Allaamah Munzhiri), 3) Hafiz Abul-Hasan Maqdisi (Ustaadh of Allaamah Munzhiri), 4) Imaam Abu-Dawud and 5) Imaam Haakim. (Targheeb vol.1 pg.468)

    Allaamah Suyuti (RA) has enumerated upto 20 great Muhadditheen who have accepted its authenticity. Besides those that are mentioned above, some of them are: 6) Hafiz Abu-Sa’eed al-Sam’aaniy, 7) Hafiz Khateeb al-Baghdaadiy, 8) Hafiz ibn-Mandah, 9) Imaam Bayhaqi, 10) Imaam al-Subkiy, 11) Imaam al-Nawawiy, 12) Haafiz ibn al-Salat, 13) Hafiz Abu-Musa al-Madiniy, 14) Hafiz al-Alaaeiy, 15) Imaam Siraaj-ud-Deen al-Bulqiniy, 16) Hafiz al-Zarkashiy and a few others. (al-Laalil Masnoo’ah vol.2 pg.42-44)

    The following list of Muhadditheen is of those who have written detailed articles on this matter: 1) Imaam al-Daraaniy, 2) Imaam Abu-Musa al-Madiniy

    ,3) Imaam ibn Mandah,

    4) Hafiz ibn Naasirud-Deen ad-Dimishqiy, Allaamah al-Suyyooti.As for the claim of the writer, ‘It had been unknown to the great Imaams. and presumably Imaam Shaafi’ee (RA).’This is a claim that lacks the support of explicit quotations from those illustrious Imams as well as any reference. In fact, the books of Hanafi Fiqh support the view of its acceptance. (refer Shaami vol.2 pg.27; HM Saeed).

    And several Shaafi’ee Jurists have also endorsed it, namely Imaam al-Muhaamiliy, Imaam al-Juwaini, Imaam-ul-haramayn, Imaam Ghazaaliy,

    Imaam Raafi’ee and others. (al-La-aaliy vol.2 pg.43; al-Azkaar of Imaam Nawawiy pg.242)Khateeb Baghdaadiy (RA), who is Maaliki, states that there is no reason for it not being permissible. In fact, Imaam ibn Hajar (RA) has mentioned a quotation from

    Imaam Maaliki from which it could be deduced that it was acceptable in his Madhab. (refer Futuhaat al-Rabbaaniyyah vol.4 pg.321) Qaadhi Iyaad Maaliki (RA) has also accepted its virtue. (Ibid)As far as Imaam Ahmad ibn Hanbal (RA) is concerned,

    Hafiz ibn Hajar (RA) has stated that he had reversed his decision and was possibly inclined towards its acceptability later on. (Futuhaat al-Rabbaaniyyah vol.4 pg.318, 320)From the above, it is apparent that there can be no doubt regarding Salat-ut-Tasbeeh being an act of virtue which has been established authentically.

    And is accepted by a large number of celebrated scholars of Hadith as well as the scholars of Fiqh

    (jurisprudence).Imaams Taajud-Deen Subki (RA) and Badrud-Deen Zarkashi have stated that it is from the fundamentals of Deen and anyone who discards it despite knowing its virtue is not on the correct path. (Futuhaat vol.4 pg.321-322)

    And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best

    Many people are quoting from only one website which contains only one opinion from a set of scholars thst do not regard Salaatul Tasbih as a merituous act. But this is truly decieving as Salaatul Tasbih was given great eminence and acted upon by the Salaf us Salih aswell as great scholars of the past and present as can be seen from above.

  12. I think it is enough to know that Salaatul Tasbih was practised by many Salaf including that of Ibn Mubarak. Subhanallah!

  13. I heard that on Lailat ul qadr Allah only accepts one dua. Is that true or can I say many different duas? My goal is to make dua for every important thing and people in my life.

    • Asalaamu Alaikum, That is completely false. Allah accepts all Dua’s of the believers now and forever and not just one Dua.Laylatul Qadr is a very special night so Duas are more readily accepted but Duas can be accepted at any time particularly just before opening and closing fast. It is also readily accepted at Tahajjud time.

      Allah does not tire of accepting Dua’s but we tire of making Dua’s. So make as much Dua’s as you can now and forever until your last breath and NEVER think that Allah is not listening or that he will not accept it. Allah will do what is best for you or give you that which is better than what we ask for because we do not know what is best for us but he knows what is best as he created us.

  14. In this article the advices on managing time is quite good. But the problem in the article is the instructions of ebadah is given. Most of them are bidah, innovation.
    First of all, the salat al tasbih is an innovation. Here read it carefully with open mind.
    Praise be to Allaah.
    There are ahaadeeth concerning Salaat al-Tasaabeeh which are attributed to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), and which were classed as hasan by some of the scholars, but may scholars said that they are da’eef (weak) and that this prayer is not prescribed in Islam.
    The Standing Committee was asked about Salaat al-Tasaabeeh, and they answered:
    Salaat al-Tasaabeeh is a bid’ah (innovation) and the hadeeth concerning it is not proven, rather it is munkar. Some of the scholars mentioned it among the mawdoo’ (fabricated) ahaadeeth.
    See Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, vol. 8, p. 163
    Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said: Salaat al-Tasaabeeh is not prescribed, because the hadeeth is da’eef (weak). Imaam Ahmad said there is no sound evidence for it. Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah said it is a fabrication, and he said that none of the imaams recommended it. He (may Allaah have mercy on him) spoke the truth, because whoever examines this prayer will find that it is odd in the way it is performed … Moreover, if it were prescribed, it would have been something that was reported in many reports because of its great virtue and reward. Since there are no such reports and none of the imaams described it as being recommended, we know that it is not proven. The oddness in the way in which it is performed is as described in the hadeeth narrated concerning it, which says that it is to be performed once every day, or once every week, or once every month, or once every year, or once in a lifetime. This indicates that these reports are not sound; if it were prescribed, it would be something to be done on a regular basis, and one would not be given such a variety of options.
    On this basis, people should not do this prayer. And Allaah knows best.
    Fataawa Manaar al-Islam, 1/203
    (Islam Q&A Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid)

    Secondly, we should not stop eating suhoor 30 minutes before. It’s also innovation. Read below
    Praise be to Allaah.
    What they do is not correct. Because Allaah has permitted the fasting person to eat and drink until dawn comes. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
    “and eat and drink until the white thread (light) of dawn appears to you distinct from the black thread (darkness of night)” [al-Baqarah 2:187]

    al-Bukhaari (1919) and Muslim (1092) narrated from Ibn ‘Umar and ‘Aa’ishah that Bilaal used to give the adhaan at night. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Eat and drink until Ibn Umm Maktoom gives the adhaan, for he does not give the adhaan until dawn comes.”

    Al-Nawawi (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: This shows that it is permissible to eat, drink, have intercourse etc until dawn comes.

    Al-Haafiz ibn Hajar said in Fath al-Baari (4/199):
    One of the reprehensible innovations that have appeared in our times is giving the second adhaan approximately twenty minutes before Fajr in Ramadaan, and extinguishing the lamps which indicate that it is haraam to eat and drink for those who want to fast. Those who introduced this innovation claim that they are erring on the side of caution with regard to an act of worship.

    Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen was asked about some timetables which give the time of imsaak as being approximately one-quarter of an hour before Fajr. He said:

    This is a kind of bid’ah (innovation) which has no basis in the Sunnah. Rather the Sunnah is to do the opposite, because Allaah says in His Holy Book (interpretation of the meaning): “and eat and drink until the white thread (light) of dawn appears to you distinct from the black thread (darkness of night)”
    [al-Baqarah 2:187]

    And the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Bilaal gives the adhaan at night, so eat and drink until you hear the adhaan of Ibn Umm Maktoom, for he does not give the adhaan until dawn comes.” This imsaak which some of the people do is an addition to that which Allaah has enjoined, so it is false. It is a kind of extremism in religion, and the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Those who go to extremes are doomed, those who go to extremes are doomed, those who go to extremes are doomed.”
    Narrated by Muslim, 2670
    And Allaah knows best.

    • I do not think he is saying that we should stop eating 30 minutes before fajr because it’s prescrobed or anything, but that we should eat and be done and leave the rest of the time for dua.

  15. Giving just £10 to charity during Laylatul Qadr equals £30,000!

    The Night of Power is better than a 1000 months, which is over 83 years. Therefore any act of worship during this night is rewarded to worship equal to over 83 years. Subhanallah!

    This applies to prayers, Qur’an recitation, Dhikr (Remembrance of Allah) and giving to charity and so on.

    Giving to charity during the Night of Power (Laylat-ul-Qadr) for example is equal to an act of giving to charity for a 1000 months = 83.33 years x 365 days = over 30,415 days.

    Therefore giving just £10 to charity during such a night is equal to £300,000!

    £100 given to charity is equal to £3,000,000!

    £1000 given to charity is equal to £30,000,000 and so on.

    Subhanallah! What a great return for such a little amount given.

    So let us make the best of this opportunity to gain such immense and unimaginable rewards and do as many good deeds as possible and give to charity for the pleasure of Allah and gain incomprehensible rewards in return for so little!

    The generosity of Allah is not measurable it is infinite!

  16. Which day is laylat al-qadr most likely? Some sources say 27th, is there any truth to this?

    And what is l’tikaf? If you can explain Arabic terms in English in parenthesis, that would be great. Not everyone understands Arabic and the articles should be welcoming to even the person with the least knowledge. Thank you.

    • Asalaamu Alaikum. Laylatul Qadr is likely to be on any of the odd numbered nights of the last ten nights of Ramadan. The reason we do not know is so that we may search for it by worshipping all the last ten nights or at least the odd numbered nights rather than just one night. Therefore we should try our utmost to worship all the last 10 nights of Ramadan. If not then at least the odd nights such as the 21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th and 29th.

      I’tikaf is seclusion in the Masjid for the last 10 nights of Ramadan. This seclusion is so that we may reflect on ourselves and draw closer to Allah. It is certainly a great reward and a practise of the Prophet. If we cannot do the last 10 nights then we can certainly spend as much time in the Masjid as possible and get reward for voluntary I’tikaf. Hope that helps.

  17. @FarrukhPaasha ‎​جَزَاكَ اللَّهُ خَيْرَاً much for explaining to the mis-informed confused brother. We all know SalaatuTasbeeh is an authentic salaah. May Allh grant us beneficial ilm, barakah in it and the ability to practise on what we learn.

    اَللَّهُمَّ اِنَّكَ عَفُوٌّ ، تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي

  18. Assalaam alaikum…Article says we must eat suhoor early, but what I have read is …its better to suhoor late …just before fajr…ummah will be on righg path till they eat suhoor late and have iftar early….Secondly last half an hour dua….is best and most acccepted???? plz clarify…as far as I know its last one third of the night that duas are accepted…

    • Wa Alaikum Asalaam. What i meant by this is that we should eat Suhoor a little earlier so that we can spend the last moments of the last portion of the night in Dua as the time before Fajr begins is blessed and if it is Laylatul Qadr then this short time before Fajr begins would be even more blessed and Duas even more readily accepted than usual.

      Before Fajr is the last third of the night.

      And Allah knows best in all matters

    • Asalaamu Alaikum. Please spread to all so we can make the best of the last ten nights of this blessed month.

  19. Asalaamu Alaikum.
    Thanks for the article. It is very helpful. If the articles is made in doodle, it much more helpful to understand and spread among friends and family. :)

  20. Really a direction-facilitating article covering almost all the time during Laylatul Qadr. I look forward to apply this, thank you for opening my mind with all the desirable things that can be done during the night of Qadr.

      Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

      There is no Hadith that explicitly proves that 4 raka’ts before the prayer of Isha is sunnah. However, there is a Hadith reported in Sahih Al Bukhari, narrated by Abdullah bin Mughaffal (Radhiyallahu Anhu) that Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said:

      باب بين كل أذانين صلاة لمن شاء

      Between every two calls of prayer, there is a prayer for the one who wishes to perform it.

      Sahih Al Bukhri Vol.1 Pg.174 (Darul Fikr)

      It is unanimously accepted by the commentators of Ahadith that the words, “two calls of prayer”, mentioned above, refer to Adhan and Iqamah. Therefore, we understand that it is advisable to read some kind of Salaah between the Adhan and Iqamah of every Salaah.

      On the basis of this Hadith, Muslim Jurists have inferred that it is mustahab (desirable) to perform some prayer, nafl or sunnah, before every obligatory prayer, except before Maghrib, according to the Hanafi Mazhab. The rak’ats performed before Fajr and Zuhr are sunnah muwakkadah, whilst the ones performed before the rest of the prayers are either nafl or sunnah ghair-muwakadah.

      No mention has been made about the number of rak’ats in the abovementioned Hadith, meaning that praying any number of rak’ats will serve the purpose of the Hadith. However, a large number of scholars have preferred to perform 4 rak’ats before Isha on the analogy of Fajr, Zuhr and Asr. It may be seen in the case of these three prayers that the number of sunnah and nafl performed before each of them correspond to the number of obligatory prayers respectively. On this analogy, the said scholars have preferred to perform 4 rak’ats before Isha, as it corresponds to the 4 obligatory rak’ats of Isha.

      However, it should be borne in mind that these 4 rak’ats should not be taken as determined by Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), nor as a specific Sunnah.

  22. Assalamualaikum
    When do you sleep in 10 last days of ramadan? The schedule seems too packed. We need to give our bodies right too, don’t we?

    • Asalaamu Alaikum, The worship plan is meant as a template for one to adapt according to ones own life and situation. With regards to sleep it depends on whether you are off or working. If you are working then it is a bit more difficult but you can sleep straight after taraweeh and awaken 30 mins before Suhur ends and eat ad do 2 – 4 rakah Tahajjud with Dua and then sleep again to awaken for work. You must also try and get a 20 mins power nap in at lunch time.

      If you are off then I would have a 30 mins nap after Zuhur and since in the Uk in particular Iftaar is around 09:30 and Suhur ends at 2:45 am so after taraweeh you can have another nap or worship until Fajr. Then sleep and awaken on time to pray Zuhur with Jamah.

      I hope that helps.

    • agree with you people who are working its doing injustice to your work its only the Tak nights odd number
      20 night 22, 24 26 28 ( 5 nights)

  23. While this is a great article for people who are stay-at-home or don’t have jobs it completely neglects that people can’t always take time off from work as they need to support a family, especially before Eid.
    It would have been great had there been any advice for those who work day jobs and can’t stay up all night or steer clear of social media etc.
    Just to clarify, love the article just wish there was advice in it for those who work full time jobs in Ramadan as well.

    • Asalaamu Alaikum, The plan can easily be adapted to your situation. So for those who cannot worship the whole night can worship a part of it.

      Most people who work are able to take off annual leave during the last ten days of Ramadan especially if booked off as soon as posible. But for those who are not able to do for whatever reason can sleep straight after praying taraweeh and awaken 30 mins before Suhur ends and eat and pray 2 – 4 rakah Tahajjud with Dua and then sleep again to awaken for work. You must also try and get a 20 mins power nap in at lunch time.

      Please refer to the following thread:

      Ramadan Worship Plan for Workers and Mothers:

  24. Jazaak ALLAH khairan may ALLAH the,most gracious reward u good n may He b pleased with u for sharing n educating us with what ALLAH the magnificent has educated u with MashaALLAH .

  25. As salaamu alaikum brother, Great article Ma shaa Allah. I liked the planning aspect to maximise the returns. May Allah ( swt ) help you, us and all mumineen to get maximum benefit out of Laylatul Qadr, ameen.

  26. Jazak allahu haire for this wonderful plan..May Allah (swt) guide us to do more ibadaah in this Ramadan..
    Alhamdulillah

  27. Ibn al-Jawzi said: “When the race horse knows that it is nearing the end of the track it exerts all of its effort to win the race. Do not allow the race horse to be more clever than you. For verily, deeds are judged by their conclusions. So if you didn’t do well with welcoming Ramadan then perhaps you will do better bidding it farewell.”

    Ibn Taymiyyah said: “The lesson lies in perfection of the conclusion of a thing, not in the shortcomings of the beginning of it.”

    Hasan al-Basri said: “Improve your performance in what is left (of time) and you will be forgiven for that which has already passed. So take special care of the time you have left because you do not know when your soul will be turned over to Allah’s Mercy.”

    So let us learn from what has passed and make the best of the present for any second may be our last and we may not see another Ramadan!

  28. Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatahu, Excellent article brother, just one correction… 83 years is longer than some of us might live, and it is not correct to say it is longer than most of us will live, because only Allah knows how long we will live, and we ask Allah to lengthen our lives and fill it with good deeds and obedience to Him, and staying away from bad deeds and disobedience to Him.

    • Allahumma Ameen. That should be a wish and desire for all of us. But in reality on average not many people live past 83.

      The average life expectancy of the entire world does not exceed more than 83.7 years:

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_life_expectancy

      In this way we can see the magnitude of this blessed night. Also the very reason why we have been given the opportunity to gain such immense reward is because many of the nations of the past out lived our Ummah so some Sahaba’s complained to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) stating that we have such short lives and so how can we suprass the Ummah’s of the past. Hence why our Ummah has been given such a unique gift that we are able to gain more than a lifetime of rewards each year.

      So let us search for this blessed night in what remains of Ramadan!

  29. This is a wonderful tool. However it seems like it is difficult for a wife and mother to spend the whole night praying. What about the duties of cleaning the kitchen after eating? And with young children who require constant attention and wake up many times in the night. Any advise please would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

    • Asalaamu Alaikum my sister. With regards to Mothers and wives then I would recommend planning your day and night by writing down a daily routine and putting in there the times allocated to washing, cooking, naps for children and times where you will also nap and rest so you can have adequate energy throughout the day etc.

      The trick is to have your routine around that of your babies and children. Nap when they nap so you can have the energy to stay up from Isha to Fajr. Or sleep for an hour when you put your children to bed so you can stay up until Fajr.

      With regards to Iftaar and Suhur then preperation is everything. Prepare earlier on in the day so when it comes to the time of Iftaar and Suhur you only have to spend a little bit of time cooking at Iftaar and Suhur time which are also blessed times for worship and Dua in particular. Also ensure you eat good energy rich foods but not foods that will bloat or make you tired. Stick to complex carbs and proteins rather than simple carbs. Also do not over eat as that way you wil not have the energy necessery to stay up to worship.

      I would also recommend keeping a copy of the Qur’an with its meanings, Miswaak and tasbih (Dhikr counter if you use one) so you can worship where ever you are in the house. If you have very young children then you can worship where hey sleep so you can attend to them when required.

      Whatever you do nsure you have enough time to make a 30 minute dua before the end of Suhur. So the trick is to plan, plan and plan and you will be able to make the best of these last few blessed days and nights. Also bare in mind that you are getting immense rewards for household chores, looking after husband and children etc as with the right intention all good acts become worship.

      Please refer to the following thread and make your timetable right now:

      http://www.islamicboard.com/fasting-ramadhan-eid-ul-fitr/134326059-daily-ramadan-worship-plan-workers-mothers.html

      Ifyou need anything else then please do not hesitate to ask. Also mention me in your dua’s.

      • Assalamu alaikum
        I am a teacher. I don’t get leave from school. So I feel too difficulty to follow this time. Bcz I became too tired by following this time. Can u give me a suggestion

        • Asalaamu Alaikum,

          Those who are working should ensure they have a nap on their lunch break for at least 20 minutes or as long as they can. In this way they will feel more energetic for the night prayers. If not then recite Qur’an in your breaks throughout the day. When you get home then you can either have another nap or recite Qur’an and do Dhikr. These naps will help keep you be energetic for the Night prayers.

          I would also suggest preparing Suhur before you pray Taraweeh so that you have enough time as possible for worship and Dua before Fajr begins. After Taraweeh if you need to then have another nap and then awaken to be able to have enough time to prepare and eat the meal of Suhur and also pray 2-4 Rakah of Tahajjud and have enough time for about 20-30 minutes of make intense Dua up to Fajr prayer.

          If your not going to sleep after taraweeh then continue in worship after Taraweeh until Fajr. For men they should remain at the Masjid in worship until Fajr. Ensure to eat Suhur to be able to leave enough time to make a good comprehensive Dua until Fajr begins.

          I hope that helps. Please also mention me in your Dua’s

    • Asalaamu alaikum. No one routine or plan will suit all. Hence why this is a template for you to adapt according to your own personal situation and circumstance. If you need anymore help or advice then please let me know. Jzk

  30. Alhamdulillah , I have learned a lot of lessons from this website . May Allah bless all Muslims.

  31. Alhamdulillah, I have learnt ur guidance . May Allah bless all Muslims Ummah.

  32. AssalamuAlaikum Br. Farrukh.
    I find the time mentioned in this article is quite different from our local time. But making a schedule similar to the ones shown above seems like a good idea to try! Masha’Allah. May Allah bless you. J.A.K and thank you for sharing.

    • Asalaamu Alaikum sister, That is the whole point of this article for it to help us to be able to adapt and build our own daily worship timetables not only during Ramadan but throughout the year because planning the worship in our days in the form of a timetable will make us far better and more efficient worshippers of Allah than living a life “going with the flow”. Please remember me in your dua’s. jZK

  33. Special thanks to writer to give us such imaginary things. Your arrangement is good. But I have some few question…
    1. Is there any mentotory to do task at the given time by you ?
    2. We have to do same task every night of Ramadan last 10 days?

    Thank you in advance. may Allah blase you.

    • Wa Alaikum Asalaam,

      1. The timings given in the plan are just an example and template for you to use to construct your own Ramadan Worship time table plan. So you will use the timings of your local prayer times, sunrise, sunset timings etc and adapt the plan to your local area and timings.

      2. You can do a variety of worship but the best worship to do during the blessed month of Ramadan particularly the last 10 nights is to recite the Qur’an abundantley with its meanings and try to implement in ones life. Also to pray Tahajjud during the last third of the night and to make intense Dua afterwards.

      The main thing is to remember Allah as much as much and keep ones tongue moistened with his worship and glorification not only in Ramadan but throughout the year.

    • its the odd days in my view 20th night 22nd night 24th night 26th night and 28th night the writer is mentioning 10 days at a stretch those who are working cannot manage it, Brother be practical

    • That’s for the editors to spot and fix. Thanks though for the pedantic correction :)

      Please forward relevant corrections to them to correct. Jzk

  34. Alhamdulilahi, a wonderful article, May Allah continue to motivate you in your writings, Ameen Ya Rabbana!

    • Asalaamu Alaikum.

      You can pray Tahajjud straight after Isha Salah without going to sleep although it is more rewarding to sleep for a bit and then wake up to pray as the reward is from getting up from one’s comfortable bed to pray to Allah when most are asleep.

      But due to the short amount of time between Maghrib and Fajr (Here in the UK) it is far better to stay awake to worship during the last 10 nights between Maghrib and Fajr in order to be sure of catching Laylatul Qadr.

      And Allah knows best in all matters.

    • Wa Alaikum Asalaam,

      It is not necessary to have to sleep in order to pray Tahajjud according to the opinion of vast majority of scholars as Tahajjud can be prayed after Isha.

      However it is more rewarding to pray Tahajjud after a short amount of sleep as the biggest reward is for getting up from one’s sleep in order to pray in the latter part of the night when most people are asleep.

      But during these 10 blessed nights when the nights are short (In the Uk and Europe) and also Laylatul Qadr may fall in any of the last 10 nights then one should stay up to maximise worship as much as possible.

      And Allah knows best in all matters

  35. jazak Allah kair. Very much helpful.showed nicely to spend the last ten night’s .

  36. 09:30 pm – 10:00 pm: Break fast with dates and water and pray Maghrib (men with congregation and women at home). Afterwards pray the 2 raka’ahs of sunnah and as many nawafil (voluntary) prayers in sets of 2 raka’ahs as you can manage.

    Thanks for all the valuable advice. However, what is the basis of advising women to stay at home?

    • Asalaamu Alaikum,

      What is the ruling on sisters making salah in public?.

      Published Date: 2002-09-26

      Praise be to Allaah.

      Woman should be protected and concealed from men as much as her guardian can do that. The Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) preferred for women to pray in their houses and said that their reward for doing so is greater than their reward for praying in the mosque.

      It was narrated from ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “A woman’s prayer in her room is better than her prayer in her courtyard, and her prayer in her cabinet is better than her prayer in her room.” (Narrated by Abu Dawood, 570; al-Tirmidhi, 1173. This hadeeth was classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb wa’l-Tarheeb, 1/136).

      “Her room” refers to a woman’s own room in the house, and “her courtyard” refers to the central area (in a traditional Arabic house), off which all the rooms of the house open.

      A cabinet is like a small room inside the large room, in which personal items are stored.

      (Commentary from ‘Awn al-Ma’bood).

      It was narrated that Umm Humayd the wife of Abu Humayd al-Saa’idi came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and said, “O Messenger of Allaah, I like to pray with you.” He said, “I know that you like to pray with me, but your prayer in your room is better for you than your prayer in your courtyard and your prayer in your courtyard is better for you than your praying in your house, and your prayer in your house is better for you than your prayer in the mosque of your people, and your prayer in the mosque of your people is better for you than your prayer in my mosque.” So she issued orders that a prayer-place be prepared for her in the furthest and darkest part of her house, and she used to pray there until she met Allaah (i.e., died).”

      (Narrated by Ahmad, 26550).

      This hadeeth was classed as saheeh by Ibn Khuzaymah in his Saheeh, 3/95; Ibn Maajah, 5/595; al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb wa’l-Tarheeb, 1/135

      It was narrated that ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) said: “If the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) had lived to see how women have started to behave, he would have prevented them [from going to the mosque] as the women of the Children of Israel were prevented.” I said, to ‘Umrah, “Were they prevented?” He said, “Yes.”

      (al-Bukhaari, 831; Muslim, 445)

      ‘Abd al-‘Azeem Abaadi said:

      The reason why their praying in their homes is better is because it is safer from fitnah or temptation. This was later borne out by the way in which women began to make a wanton display of their adornments, hence ‘Aa’ishah said what she said. (‘Awn al-Ma’bood, 2/193).

      Hence women should be careful when praying in public places, or go far away from where men can see them, and should not pray in a public place when the time of prayer comes, unless she has no other place in which to pray.

      Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah al-Jibreen said:

      With regard to women, their houses are better for them. If they need to pray in the marketplace and there is a place that is screened off, there is nothing wrong with them praying there, in sha Allah.

      Fataawa al-Mar’ah al-Muslimah, 1/333

      But what some of the common people say, that a woman’s prayer is invalidated just because a man happens to see her, has no basis in sharee’ah at all. The women used to pray at the time of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) in one mosque and he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did not rule their prayer to be invalid.

      And Allaah knows best.

  37. I don’t understand if we taraweeh with imam in the masjid just after Isha, the how can we pray again 8 rakat tahajjud in the night of lailatul qadra. Is taraweeh and lailatul qadra different. Please answer

    • Asalaamu Alaikum, Tahajjud is a Nawafil prayer and as such there is no set limit for the amount of Nawafil prayers one can pray. There is a difference of opinion on whether Taraweeh prayer is the same or different to Tahajjud prayer but nevertheless one can pray as many Nawafil prayers as one likes during the night. So there is no harm in this.

      And Allah knows best in all matters

  38. Subhan Allah! Such immense rewards are to be gained during these blessed 10 nights. How can we afford to miss out on them? Who is to say that we will live to see the next Ramadan? We MUST make the best of these 10 nights. If we cannot manage all of the 10 nights, then as many as we can manage, particularly on the odd-numbered nights: 21st, 25th, 27th and 29th.

    In above statement 23rd is missed. Kindly make it correct.

  39. Mach’Allah this article is useful. Thank you and jazak’Allah khair. May we all catch the blessed laylat al qadr bi idni Allah.
