Entering This Last Prophecy the Practice is done – It doesn’t feel like the month of Ramadan has entered the last 10 days starting from Sunday, May 2, 2021. At the end of this Ramadan, Rasulullah SAW gave an example that he was getting more active and earnest in doing good.
The following is the practice that was exemplified by the Prophet Muhammad in the last 10 days. Come on, we do it!
1. Evening prayer
In the last 10 days of Ramadan, Rasulullah SAW was very eager to increase his practice at night, he even invited his entire family and friends to liven up the night. This was conveyed according to the following hadith:
Rasulullah SAW used to be when he entered the last 10 Ramadan, he tightened his belt (earnestly in worship), enlivened these nights with worship, and woke up his wives to worship. ” (Narrated by Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
Iktikaf means staying in a mosque in order to worship Allah SWT. Iktikaf is recommended at any time, but it is preferable to enter the last ten nights of Ramadan as narrated by Abdullah bin Umar RA:
“Rasulullah SAW participated in the last ten days of the month of Ramadan.
Because the current situation is still a pandemic, it would be better for those of us who will do activities in the mosque to still follow health protocols to stay safe and comfortable when praying.
3. Increase alms
The practice of alms has many virtues, one of which can wash away sins. Rasulullah SAW said, “Almsgiving can wash away sins as water extinguishes fire.
“Surely those who give alms both men and women and lend to Allah a good loan, will undoubtedly be multiplied (reward) to them; and for them the reward is generous.
Rasulullah continued, “To be fair between two people is alms, helping someone (who has difficulty raising goods) on his animal, then helping him to raise it on the back of the animal he rides or carrying his belongings is alms.”
Rasulullah SAW also said: “Good words are alms, every step that is mobilized towards prayer is almsgiving and removing thorns from the road is alms”.

4. Read the Koran
In the month of Ramadan, many Muslims compete and have a target in practicing the Qur’an. Recognizing the Qur’an can be started by reading 1 juz after the obligatory prayer for 30 days of fasting, and can be added after the sunnah prayer.
Inside HR. Tirmidhi, Rasullullah SAW said that whoever reads one letter of the Koran, then for him there is one kindness with that reading.
“Whoever reads one letter from the Book of Allah (Al-Qur’an), it is for him one goodness. One kindness is rewarded with ten such things. I’m not saying alif laam miim is one letter. But alif is one letter, laam is one letter and miim is one letter. ” (HR. Tirmidhi, no 2910)
5. Several factors caused Rasulullah SAW to be more active in the last 10 days of Ramadan
First, the last ten days are the closing of the month of Ramadan, and every human practice is judged by its closing practice. Second, the last 10 nights were the nights most loved by Rasulullah SAW.
Third, there is the night of Lailatul Qadar where the virtue of worshiping exceeds praying for 1000 months. Fourth, Rasulullah SAW gave an example to his people so that they would not get carried away in the busyness of preparing for the needs of the holiday so that they forgot the virtues of worship in the last 10 days.
If Rasulullah SAW is eager to seek merit in the remnants of Ramadan, then we as the ummah must also be more enthusiastic. Come on, maximize our worship at the end of the glorious holy month!
