The last 10 days of Ramadhan 1439H begin tonight (Monday June 4, 2018) I wrote this post in 2010. I am reposting it to remind myself of the benefits of taking full advantage of the remaining days of this year's Ramadhan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. Life for Muslims begins when the sun goes down during the holy month. Muslims are obliged to abstain completely from drinking, eating and sex from sunrise to sunset. Every Muslim is taught to embrace Ramadhan completely by filling the days with acts of worship and charity, besides getting rid of bad thoughts and deeds. The whole month is full of blessings and rewards but the last ten days have a special status as seen in the recommendations and practices of the Prophet (PBUH) and his companions. See video below.
