off and more. Everything must go. It’s the end of the season, it’s the end of Ramadan, and the blessed last ten nights of Ramadan.
The pious predecessors used to say, and it was narrated from the Prophet as a hadith, that “Ramadan is nothing but a marketplace, which was established, reached its prime and then came to an end. For some it was profitable and for others was a great loss.”
In Ramadan’s marketplace, the last ten nights, Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala trades with all merchants:
"Allah has purchased of the Believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the Garden (of Paradise)”
O you who believe! Shall I lead you to a bargain that will save you from a grievous Penalty?
That yeou believe in Allah and His Messenger, and that you strive (your utmost) in the Cause of Allah, with your property and your persons: that will be best for you, if you but knew!
He will forgive you your sins, and admit you to Gardens beneath which rivers flow, and to beautiful mansions in Gardens of Eternity: that is indeed the supreme Achievement. (As-Saff 61:10-13)
Aisha may Allah be pleased with her, narrated: “When the last ten nights of Ramadan begin, the messenger of Allah would stay up at night in worship, wake his family up, and tighten his lower garment.”
She also narrated: “The messenger of Allah used to show his utmost devotion in worship, the most of which, nothing like any other month of the year, would be during the month of Ramadan. And was most devoted in Ramadan during the last ten nights from it.”
