The Last Ten Days of Ramadan are recognised as the most virtuous and blessed ten nights in Islam. The Last Ten Days take place from the beginning of the 20th night in Ramadan until Eid al-Fitr. A great reward is given to those who performed acts of goodness and worship on that night.
“The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months. The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord for every matter. Peace it is until the emergence of dawn”
(Sahih International Translation)
There has come to you Ramadan, a blessed month which Allah has enjoined you to fast, during which the gates of heaven are opened and the gates of Hell are closed, and the rebellious devils are chained up. In it there is a night which is better than a thousand months, and whoever is deprived of its goodness is indeed deprived.
للَّهُمَّ اِنَّكَ عَفُوٌّ ، تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي
Allahumma innaka `Afuwwun TuHibbul `Afwa Fa`fu `Annii.
O Allah, You are Most Forgiving, and You love forgiveness; so forgive me
Here’s some context, Aisha, the wife of the Prophet (pbuh) reported,
I asked: “O Messenger of Allah! If I realize Lailat-ul-Qadr (Night of Decree), what should I supplicate in it?” He ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) replied, “You should supplicate: Allahumma innaka ‘afuwwun, tuhibbul-‘afwa, fa’fu ‘anni (O Allah, You are Most Forgiving, and You love forgiveness; so forgive me).” [At-Tirmidhi].
During this time, men and women can do I’tikaf, in which they spend their last ten nights in their mosques and worship Allah (swt).
