Don’t waste the spirit of the child, Ma. Encourage him to do the deeds that are legalized in the last 10 days of Ramadan. Especially in the last 10 days of Ramadan there is the night of Lailatul Qadar.
The night of Lailatul Qadar is the night of the Qur’an’s descent from Lauful Mahfudz to the Baitul Izzah (sky) of the world. That night was a night better than 1,000 months.
It is not known exactly when this night will come. However, Rasulullah SAW said that the nights of Lailatul Qadar were odd nights of the last 10 days of Ramadan.
“Look for the night of lailatul qadar on odd night of the last ten months of Ramadan.” (Narrated by Imam Bukhari).
Well, this time Popmama.com has summarized the practices of the last 10 days that you can do with your children to get the night of Lailatul Qadar.
1. Tadarus Al-Quran
Tadarus Al-Quran is one of the practices that can be done throughout the day during the month of Ramadan. Moreover, the last 10 days of Ramadan coincide with the time when the Quran was revealed.
It was narrated by Abdullah Ibnu Mas’ud as follows:
“Abdullah ibn Mas’ud, Rasulullah SAW said: Whoever reads one letter of the Kitabullah (Al Quran), he will get one good. One good will be multiplied into ten such as. I did not say alif lam mim one letter. alif one letter, one letter lam, and one letter meme, “(Narrated by At-Tirmidhi).
During the last 10 nights of Ramadan, Muslims were ordered to do iktikaf. Iktikaf is to stay in the mosque and get closer to Allah SWT.
Rasulullah SAW stated that the activities in the last ten nights were like those of him.
مَنِ اعْتَكَفَ مَعِي فَلْيَعْتَكِفَ الْعَشْرَ الْأَوَاخِرَ
“Who wants to ‘tikaf with me, then give’ tikaf on the last ten nights.” (Narrated by Ibn Hibban).
3. Increase prayer
Praying is one form of our request to Allah SWT as a people who like to go wrong and make mistakes. So don’t ever stop to say a prayer to Him for mercy.
During the last 10 nights Mama and the children can add the following prayer,
Rasulullah SAW also ordered Ummul Mukminin Aisyah to pray on those nights. Ayesha said, “O Messenger of Allah, what do you think if I get the night of lailatul qadar right, what should I say?”, She replied: “Say, Allahumma innaka ‘afuwwun tuhibbul’ afwa fa’fu anna” forgiving loves forgiveness, so forgive me) “(Narrated by Ibn Majah, which Al Albani affirmed).
4. Increase your evening prayers
Night prayers are sunnah prayers. However, this prayer is the most important prayer after the fardu prayer.
From Abu Hurairah RA said, Rasulullah SAW said:
“The most important fast after the fast of Ramadan is fasting in the month of Allah (syahrullah) Muharram. Meanwhile, the night prayer is the most important prayer after the fardhu prayer. “ (HR. Muslim, no. 1982).
Therefore, let’s invite your mother’s child to set up the evening prayers. It might be difficult at first to get him up for the evening prayers. However, it’s only for a moment, over time the child will get used to it.
5. Increase dhikr
Dhikr is the easiest practice to do. Because, dhikr can be done anytime and anywhere as long as it is in a holy state.
The command for dhikr is listed in the chapter Al-Baqarah verse 152,
Allah SWT said in Surah Al-Baqarah verse 152 which means “Pray (remember) you to Me, I will certainly remember you too!”
Remembrance can also bring peace to the heart.
Allah SWT also said in Surah Ar-Ra’d verse 28 which means:
“That is people who believe, and their hearts are safe at peace with dhikr to Allah, remember with dhikr to Allah, then the heart will feel safe and at ease.” (Surah Ar-Ra’d; 28).
So that’s the practice you can do with your children during the last 10 days of Ramadan. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity and keep up the spirit!
