The last ten nights of Ramadan are upon us and during these nights Muslims around the world seek forgiveness, mercy, and guidance from Allah swt.
Observing the last ten nights of Ramadan is a beautiful tradition, however, these final nights are spent at home amid COVID-19. Quarantine has created an interesting opportunity to sincerely connect with Allah during these last 10 nights of Ramadan.
American Muslims are finding ways to identify a new normal at home during this Ramadan, especially during these final sacred nights. American Muslim women share their plans for the last ten nights of Ramadan with AboutIslam.net.
Reflections from American Muslim Women
“My plan is to engage in much reading, crying, and praying, while begging Allah to forgive my and our souls. Additionally, I plan on bagging up 504-700 cookies per night for the drive up Iftar at my local mosque,” Hameelah Rasheed told AboutIslam.net.
“I plan to attend all of these wonderful online sessions to help connect and reflect with my Lord. I also am hoping to stay up during the night – crying, praying, and seeking Allah’s mercy, forgiveness, and protection,” Azizah Kahera told AboutIslam.net.
“I plan to continue to do my part for the community by offering a space for sisters to connect, cook, cope, and stay sane while fasting during a pandemic. Last but not least, I plan on decorating and planning a mega `Eid brunch and `Eid dinner for my family.”
“My husband and I will try to memorize ayahs from the Holy Qur’an. Additionally, we will make salah and offer duaa prayers together. I plan to continue doing charity work and engaging in activism during these final days,” T.C Mahfouz said.Pages: 1 2
