Excitement is in the air as the last 10 nights of Ramadan have arrived! But for some people – especially busy mothers or menstruating women – this is accompanied by a sense of sadness or frustration that they can’t do as much as they wish they could. Ustadha Raidah Shah Idil introduces a paradigm shift that believers should develop for the last 10 nights of Ramadan.
This podcast episode delivers a reminder about the beauty of the last 10 nights, the best du’a to recite, and how Muslim families can create a community-wide revolution, starting at home.
