10 Hadiths on the Blessed Nights

The most blessed time of Ramadan is approaching; the showers of mercy and blessings are heaped on the believers during the last ten nights of Ramadan.

It is time to put more effort and be more dedicated. It is a golden chance for those who were careless in the past days of Ramadan to make up and get a great share of the Ramadan's reward. And it is a long awaited season for the devoted to get closer to Allah and to ascend in higher ranks of dedication.
