Finishing Ramadan Strong – Ustadh Amjad Tarsin

* Originally Published on 5/06/2018

In this reminder, Ustadh Amjad Tarsin gives advice on how to take advantage of the last ten nights and days of Ramadan. He discusses their virtue, the value of seeking Laylatu ‘l-Qadr, and the example of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) in reviving these last ten nights. He compares Ramadan to a marathon and urges us not to give up and to put in every last bit of effort even if we won’t get first place. Ustadh Amjad highlights the spiritual magnitude of these last ten nights and particularly of Laylatu ‘l-Qadr, within which, he says, an action is multiplied 30,000 fold. He stresses encouraging one’s family to perform night devotion, even if a little, just as one would be avid for them to claim a million-dollar prize. He closes emphasizing the importance of even small acts of worship to make the most of what’s left of the month.
