Ramadan is a blessing from God Almighty. It has three (Ashry)decades, each decade has its own virtue. In this post, the greatness and importance of the three decades of Ramadan is beautifully described in English. At the same time, the prayers (Dua) of the three decades are provided with beautiful pictures. Here are a few words to search for this post: pehle(first,1) ashray ki dua, dusre(second, 2nd) ashra ki dua, teesre(last, 3rd, Third) ashra ki dua, first, second and last ashra of ramadan, 1st, 2nd 3rd 10 days of ramadan dua، Рамадан Карим.
And now the discussion is that, either only the first 10 days are the phase of Rahmat, and if they so, then why do this phase called Rahmat? which qualities make him qualify as the decade of Rahmat? And the answer is this according to the Tafseer of the Ahadees of (Muslim and Bukhari).
Muslims are not accustomed to practice fasts in 11 months, therefore they feel a little bit of difficulty in keeping fast in Ramadan, and in this month, and especially in the first decade, Allah Almighty bestows the souls of Muslim, with great delight and spiritual fitness to face the thirst and hunger, only for the sake of Allah. First, ten days are the package of physical, emotional, and spiritual fitness.
And these ten days set our journey for the rest of Ramadan and then other two-decade set our life for a whole year. These 10 days,240 hours,14400 minutes, and 864000 seconds, are the source of unlimited blessings, because in these days whatever our brain think, on whatever issue our heart put the stamp of its acceptance.
Whatever the topic it might, which is completed by the movement of our fingers and hands, if the idea of brain, the acceptance of heart, and the task Which is accomplished by hands, is fruitful for ourselves and other fellow beings, each idea, each task, each acceptance is a boon and marvelous gift. This decade also makes us remember the other uncountable, unspeakable, unimaginable, and indescribable blessings of creator. This gifted ten days awakes the Muslims and remembers them to bow before Allah and be thankful and blissful.
Because we are the greatest creature among all creatures, we are the part of the luckiest ummah which is the ummah of Allah's beloved Prophet (P.B.U.H). A Muslim is a beautiful vessel, if it is empty, it might be a brake, during the moments of some thunderstorm, but if the vessel is full of spiritual flowers of good deeds, it will be protected by Allah Almighty. So, the first ten days are the time to remember Allah's blessing, and be thankful, and to fill our vessel with spiritual flowers.

- "My Lord, forgive me, have mercy on me, for You, are the Most Merciful of the merciful."

|Second Ashra Mubarak|
We are the strongest, wisest, and most beautiful creatures of Allah Almighty. But this strongest, wisest creature has become the slave of his wishes, dreams, and his craving for more and more wealth.
And the creature who has been called the "Crown of Creation" and this superior creation has lost its crown, its superiority and glamour due to its mean and trivial ambitions and perception.
And in this decade, we have the luckiest moments to seek pardon for our unlimited, uncountable and undesirable sins, which have been committed in this year and in our past.
Sometimes we commit sins, but due to some inner guilt or Burdon we can’t seek forgiveness for that sins, and the most important fact and a solid topic for discussion is that how many types of sins are there? and how we can get a pardon for that's sins?
Either only the act of seeking Allah's Mercy is enough for a Muslim, or something else is necessary too? We can get a solid answer from the understanding of the Holy Quran.
Allah has clearly mentioned that, he has the right to forgive his own rights, for example, if a Muslim is not keeping fasts, or not offering prayers these things are only for Allah, so he has the right to take revenge, or forgive his all rights which were imposed on Muslims.
And other types of sins are the sins that we commit by not performing the duties of our fellow beings which are imposed on us as Muslim, for example, we are not supposed to injure the feeling of anyone, not to kill anyone, not to blame anyone, not to abuse anyone and if we did it, we are supposed to repent and seek Mercy from that particular person. In this holy month, we are blessed with the periods of 10 days to repent, seek pardon, and salvation.
Because this month is a great boon for Muslims, and these ten days are made by creator, in order to prove his love and affection with his creature.
Because his love is so spacious and great, that he doesn’t want to send the ummah of his beloved Prophet (P.B.U.H) to hell therefore, he is giving the countless chance for forgiveness and salvation.
- "اَسْتَغْفِرُ اللہ رَبِّىْ مِنْ كُلِّ ذَنْۢبٍ وَّاَتُوْبُ اِلَيْهِ۔"
- "I ask forgiveness of Allah for all my sins, and turn to Him who is my Lord."
- Translation (Trjma) in Urdu:
- "میں اللہ سے تمام گناہوں کی بخشش مانگتا ہوں جو میرا پرور دگار ہےاور اسی کی طرف رجوع کرتا ہوں۔"
|Third (Last) Ashra Mubarak|
So the importance of the Quran and Ramadan can be guessed through this fact, the Quran has the description of Ramadan and the Quran has been descended by Almighty in the holy month of Ramadan both Quran and Ramadan bear the witness of each other.
The last decade of Ramadan is the phase in which Muslims can get rid of the fire of hell. In the whole year, Muslims don't practice all the duties which are imposed on them by God, so they become a sinner and the trees of their Faith and Iman be dry and weak, so their relationship with their the creator seems weak, so in order to make this relationship strong with his creation God has created this particular month, it is the sign of his unspeakable kindness and compassion, that the Muslims who become sinners by sinning throughout the year, get the chance to seek Mercy for their sins and be pious, by performing all the duties which are imposed on Muslims in the form of worship.
All the Muslims perform these duties joyfully because they have a pressing urge to get rid of the sins and to be free, by keeping fast and performing salah (Prayer), and in the last decade or phase, they get the special closeness with their creator and the creator accepts the tears of abashment and shame and gifts them his compassion, his love, and his forgiveness. Because his love is so vast and spacious that he cannot bear to fill the horrible hell with his beloved creation.
He has huge compassion and mercy therefore, he resembles his love with the love of a mother for her child but, he also declared, that his love is 70 times huge then the love of a mother so, he pardoned the sins of his people his believers and announced the boon of "Jannah" heaven for all Muslims, who tried their level best to get this prize.
- "اَللَّهُمَّ اِنَّكَ عَفُوٌّ تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنّیِ۔"
- "O Allah, You are the Forgiver and love to forgive. Forgive me."
- Translation in Urdu:
- "اے اللہ آپ معاف کرنے والے ہیں اور معاف کرنے کو پسند کرتے ہیں مجھے معاف کر دیں۔"
