Every year as Ramadan comes to a close, we may feel a slight discontentment that we didn’t complete our mammoth of a to-do list. We didn’t make all the changes we intended nor did we pick up all the new habits we wanted – we’ve all been there. We make plans to recite, learn, change and do – but often we end up over-planning and underperforming.
But this year, let’s develop our Ramadan mindset.
What we learn from the Prophet PBUH is that it’s not how much you do, it’s how well and consistently you do things that matter.
The Messenger of Allah PBUH said,
“Take up good deeds only as much as you are able, for the best deeds are those done regularly even if they are few.”
This Ramadan is going to be strange. The mosques are closed, and there’ll be no community gatherings, which means what we do at home, with family or alone, is going to make our Ramadan.
So, it’s essential we get it right. Not by packing our schedules to the brim, but by planning early to make the most of the month and ensure we take the gift, that is Laylatul Qadr, with both hands.
This is exactly why MyTenNights exists. To play a part in your plans to maximise your reward in the most rewarding month of the year.
Our tech is unique. It automates your donations specific to your time zone, so your donations actually go through at night. Night is in the name of Laylatul Qadr, so there’s no point your donation going through randomly at 2pm. Our tech makes sure your donation is processed after sunset and before sunrise, usually just a couple of hours after Maghrib.
The process of automating your donations is simple.
First, you search MyTenNights (obviously!)
Then you pick your charity and causes.
We partner with some of the most well-known charities across the world. You just have to select your favourite.
And finally, split your donations.
You choose exactly how much you want to donate and how you want to split it across the last 10 nights.
You can split it equally, so each night gets an equal amount.
You can split more on the odd nights, so you give more on the odd nights and less on the even nights.
Or you can choose to give more on the 27th night, which lets you give more on the 27th nights and equally across the other nights.
And then you’re done.
A man said to The Messenger of Allah PBUH,
“O Messenger of Allah, should I tie my camel and trust in Allah, or should I leave her untied and trust in Allah?”
The Prophet, PBUH, replied,
“Tie her and trust in Allah.”
This year let’s make this strange Ramadan into the best Ramadan ever by planning ahead and focusing on a manageable number of things with quality and consistency. Plan in detail an achievable to-do-list and use tools to help you tie your camel tighter and firmer.
As you do your bit, put trust in Allah and make sincere intention to make this the best Ramadan yet.
May Allah make this Ramadan productive and rewarding and help us catch the most blessed night of the year – Laylatul Qadr.
