The Best 10 Nights of the Year aka the last 10 nights of Ramadan are about to start.

In this podcast, I speak about what it is and give you a quick run down on how to prepare it.
Episode 29 Welcome to the Muslim life hackers podcast, the weekly podcast providing you with tips and tricks on how to hack your life and maximize its potential. And now for your hosts Mithra maroof and maheen Malik.
As we said, across the sea
Assalamu alaikum Muslim life hackers, this is me from out of here with the 29th episode of the Muslim life hackers podcast, in this podcast, I'm going to be speaking to you about the last night and the one thing you should do during these nights. So this podcast is not going to be a podcast in which I'm going to be telling telling you about why is it special? And what are the benefits and everything because I know there's a lot of lectures out there that are happening about this. And I suggest that you check them out because they're awesome, they're brilliant. And I think they, they'll be much better than what I can be able to come up with in the podcast. So this one's gonna
be action based. And it actually goes with the second part of our tagline. So there's aim high, and take action. So this is gonna be the take action, even I take action. And yeah, be awesome as you do it. Okay, so I'm in, like, we know that the last 10 days are happening. So this is like really Blizzard days. And there's so many things you can do during these days. And the main thing is that make sure that we make the most out of it. I mean, that's, that's one thing that we have to keep in mind. Because this, these 10 days just come once a year. And we don't really know if this is our last 10 days in our life. And we don't know,
like if we would actually live to witness it. And even if we did, Allah subhanaw taala did bless us to witness it, then he can be our last one. So keeping that in mind, I don't want to scare you folks. But just to keep that in mind to keep the bigger picture in mind. And with that, what is the things that I'm really, really passionate about is that
if you haven't already, because I know that now, it's like the last war really like halfway past halfway around Ramadan now, and I'm sure that like, during this time you're off, learn about what worked for you what didn't work for you. And you may even be feeling a bit unmotivated, like you came back from you started with the high end, you came to a low, but you know what, that's okay. Because, um, you can be able to change, you know, look over your plans you had and then just
change a few things and get back into focus again. And what I really want you to do in this last 10 days is if you haven't already, like really write down your blood test, and I got into detail about the whole dualist in, in the last podcast, it was um, it was two podcasts behind, I believe two or three, three podcast, sorry. And it was about the whole thing about making the laundry and Ramadan. And why I mentioned and now is that because it's the last 10 days coming up. So what would happen if you were to make your doulas which is like supplication asking Allah subhanaw taala for what you need and decipher the Hereafter, then one of these days is bound to be the knight of the cutter. And
we know that letter cutter also known as the knight, his power is like a knight better than 1000 months of worship. So it's really like something that you wouldn't want to miss out on. And, as I mentioned in my last podcast, as well, like, with personal experiences, like so many of my blogs that I asked, especially during the last 10 nights, they like most of them got answered, but it's just, I can, I can't remember the ones that haven't got answered, because there were so many that got answered. So it's fun a lot. And I really want you to also make the most out of this. Okay, so what I suggest you do, if you haven't already have something started like this, or you was like
halfway done, and you never got around to finish it. What you should do is just to keep it very simple. Like, if, if you are told that you know, anything you can ask in this life in here after you would you would get that then what would you ask for? So like write down everything that comes to mind and keep writing, writing, writing, writing, writing. And then after that, I'm actually if you're you're sitting down and listen to this podcast, and I tell you to pause this, pause this and start writing away. Because there's something we listen to something and then we're like, I'll do it later and we never do it. So if you are listening to this podcast, then pause it and start writing
because this podcast is going to be shorter than our usual podcast and the reason I made it like this is so that you can have time to be able to sit down and do this so
there's no excuses. Okay, so, um, what you do pretty much is you would write down everything and then after that, just select out like the top
10 out of that list, and then make put that like at the top of your list. And then every single day, like asked from that list pretty much. And obviously, there's, there's more things to add on to that. But that's just really simple, simple, simple, right? Like I was mentioning my last podcast, how one of the things that I was doing personally was that a lot of my hereafter the worst that will got to do with the Hereafter, I normally got them from like the Quran and Sunnah, because they were just better word than I can write it down. And like, they asked for, you know, qualities of a character and this and that. And so
we actually compiled the list for you. And you can find that at our show notes. So it's like a, it's a, it's a, it's about like six to us. And it's a, it's like a JPEG file, so you can just save it. And you can download it straight onto your smartphone, and you can just like read through it one by one by one. So we've made it super easy for you check it out at our show notes. I've read there at Muslim life hackers.com slash 29. Since it's this, the episode 29, and the numbers, of course, not the letters, so check that out over there. And what you can do with like, you can just write down all the things that you want in this, like, as far as this life goes, and then get those dollars for
the hereafter. And plus, you can find more on your own and then add them on. And once you have all that set, asked from that list every single day during the last 10 nights, asked for it and be very sincere with it. I mean, if if there are some words in your lists that like your writing, writing, writing, and you don't even know what it means, then I suggest you like cross it out and get to us that you know exactly what they mean. But if if that's true confusing to do, then just leave it. I mean, the, the main thing is that you do it. And that's what because like, you know, time is short. And I really, really want you to make use of these last 10 days. So write that all down and start
making these to us in the last 10 nights. So that one night he can be led the color. Now just a disclaimer of the side. The recent I mentioned 10 like to get like the top 10 wasn't so because like 10 is a magical number. It's just so that you know, you can focus on something like you know, which was, which was were like your top 10 like this Ramadan and
especially like if you've memorized this top 10 or something you can ask not just like during the nights you can ask it when you break your fast and stuff like that. So you know that these are my These are your focus and like you had like extra dollars and stuff on your list as well. But that's just a side thing. Don't let me confuse you. Because if I have confused you then let me know in the comments of the show notes. But hopefully I haven't confused you. Okay, so, so pretty much said Get your list of the worst ready, and really make the most out of the last 10 nights and us from this list. And also get a list on the Muslim life hackers website. And what you what you can do is like,
access our Muslim life, hackers website straight from your phone, so that you can save that image onto your phone. And you can use it later on. And as a bonus tip, get more rewards and send it to your family and friends. Because the thing is the sad thing is a lot of people don't actually sit down and make a duel. It's like they don't
it's funny because people would be more Meebo me Sorry, be more bothered to complain about their problems, as opposed to actually asking Allah subhanaw taala about their problems, which and Allah subhanaw taala can do something about their problems, whereas like when they just like complaining to people, they just, you know, people can't really help that much. So the thing is, is centered around to them. You can what's up to them, MMS it to them. viberate you can kick it, you can Tango, or telegram. telegram. What was telegraph? I'm not sure about the last app, but unfortunately, I have a wall on my phone except Tango. I think I uninstalled it because it had too many ads. Okay, so
anyway, back to our topic. So with that, I want to conclude off today's podcast. But I also want to let you know about a few things that we're doing during Ramadan. So as you know, there was the Ramadan Race to the Top e book was also the Dean's list, which is stands for daily evangelizing also notifications via WhatsApp. And they're free to sign up and we have limited places for that. So there are still places left. If you want to sign up for that, you can check it out on a Muslim lifehacker.com slash Dean's list. Or you can just go straight to our main page and you can find a link there. And finally, one of my favorite things, favorite projects that we only do once a year
and this project is called the suntanning project. And it happens during the last 10 days of Ramadan and you may have guessed what it's about just by the name of it but I'll explain to you what it means. You seen the last 10 days of
Last 10 nights of Ramadan there is signs as to like you know which day is the night of power lit at the corner so you know there's their signs like it's like a peaceful night and things like that but one of the other signs and this sign you actually see after litical finishes though it's cold it's actually sunny in which you see the sun rise that following night and it will it will rise in like you would rise in a particular way you would have no no race around it right and so in this group what happens is that there are like Muslims all around the world and we'll take photos in like the morning sunrises afterwards. So it's really nice to see but you know what, I personally found that
it was more enjoyable to actually get up and go see the sunrise ourselves. Because what it does is like when you see that sign in front of you really increases your Eman And do you think spawn a lot like what prophet celestial have said like 1500 years ago, he was his true sake it's not that we don't believe it's true but it's just it really just increases our human because like we see something we witness something which was told to us by the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam years years ago, so that's that's just amazing. But on a side note, if you are doing these last 10 nights like going on, like eat decaf, like seclusion in the mosque and everything that act of worship, then
it's okay you don't you don't have to get out of that in order to get to the sun but if you can see it from the mosque, that's super cool. Like you know, this high up mosques or something, but otherwise, it's fine. You can also see like the photos of like I was mentioned, like photos of everyone who posted around the world. So check it out, you can go to find that app Muslim lifehacker.com slash sun siding. So that's how it's one word sun siding. Okay, so that's about it. This concludes of today's podcast, podcast 29 and the show notes you can find them at Muslim life hackers.com slash 29. Now, I wish you all the best with your last 10 nights of Ramadan and I pray
that Allah subhanaw taala helps us all make the most out of it. And until next time, we seem like hackers continue to aim high. Take action and be awesome.
