With the last 10 days of Ramadan here – with the last 10 days of Ramadan almost over – every passing moment grows more and more precious. Make every moment worth it. Here are some phrases to help you take advantage of your time, and to help you build your homes in Jannah,  insha’Allah.

Specifically to our sisters who may not be praying or fasting at this time, don’t lose hope, for this is a matter Allah has written upon the daughters of Adam. You can still take advantage of your time. Make du’aa. Plan out your day. And keep your tongue moist with the thikr of Allah.

Some simple, easy phrases and words everyone can take advantage of.  Say them on the nights of Ramadan for multiplied reward, especially if it lands on the night that is greater than a thousand months. The Messenger salla Allahu alayhi wasallam said:

1. “Whoever recites “Qul huwa Allahu ahad” [the entire Surah] ten times, Allah will build for him a house in Paradise.”

[Sahih al-Jami’ as-Sagheer]

2. “Whoever says: ‘Glorified is Allah, the Most Great, and praised is He’ [Subhan Allah al-‘Adhim wa bi-Hamdih] will have a date palm planted for him in Paradise.”

[Sahih al-Jami; # 5531]

3. “I met Ibrahim alayhi assalam on al-Israa’, and he said to me: ‘O Muhammad, convey my greetings to your Ummah, and tell them that Jannah is of pure land and sweet water. It’s expanse is vast and levelled, and its plants are, Subhan Allah, wal-hamdu-lillah, wa la illaha illa Allah, wa Allahu akbar.‘”

[Sahih at-Tirmithi]

4. “Shall I not point you to one of the treasures of Paradise? [It is], ‘There is no power and no might except in Allah’ [La hawla wa la quwatta illa billah].”

[Bukhari]

5. “Whoever is stricken with sadness, grief, sickness or hardship and says: ‘Allah is my Lord, without any partners’ [Allahu Rabbi, la sharika lah], then it will be removed from him.”

[Sahih al-Jami’; # 6040]

6. “Whoever ate something, then said: ‘Praise be to Allah who has fed me this food and provided it for me, without any strength or power on my part’ [al-Hamdu lillah aladhi at’amani hadha wa Razaqnih bi ghayr hawlin minni wa la quwwa] is forgiven his past and future sins. And whoever wears a garment and says: ‘Praise be to Allah who has clothed me with this garment and provided it for me without any strength or power on my part’ [al-Hamdu lillah aladhi kasani hadha at-thawb wa Razaqnih bi ghayr hawlin minni wa la quwwa] is forgiven his past and future sins.”

[Sahih al-Jami; # 6086]

7. “Whoever enters the marketplace and says: ‘There is none worthy of worship except Allah who has no partners, for Him is the Dominion, and for Him is all Praise, He brings life and He causes death, and He is Alive and does not die, in His Hand is all good, and He is able to do all things,’ [La ilaha ill-Allah, Wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahul-Mulk, wa lahul-Hamd, yuhyiyy wa yumit, wa Huwa Hayyun la yamut, bi Yadihil-Khayr wa Huwa ‘ala kulli shay’in Qadir] then Allah will write one million good deeds for him, and will wipe away one million of his bad deeds, and will raise him one million levels and will build a home for him in Paradise.”

[‘Sahih al-Jami’; # 6231]

8. “Whoever asks Allah for Paradise three times [Allahumma inni as’aluk al-Jannah], then Paradise will say: “O Allah! Enter him into Paradise!” And whoever seeks protection with Allah from the Fire three times [Allahumma najjini min an-Nar], the Fire will say: “O Allah! Protect him from the Fire!“”

[Reported by at-Tirmidhi, and it is authentic]

[Reported by at-Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, and Ahmad, and it is authentic]
