As we enter the last 10 days of Ramadan, let's remember the importance of this blessed time of the year.
Allah (swt) says in the Qur’an: "Laylatul Qadr is better than a thousand months. The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord for every matter. Peace it is until the emergence of dawn." [Qur’an: 97:3-5]
"He [Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)] would strive [to do acts of worship] during the last ten days of Ramadan more than he would at any other time." (Muslim)
Aisha also reported that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) would "tighten his waist belt" (meaning he would increase his efforts) and pray all night during these last ten days.
These last days also mark the most generous days for Muslims giving charity for the sake of Allah (swt).
On behalf of the staff, board, volunteers and all members of ICFA m I pray that Allah (swt) accepts your fasting, prayers. May Allah (swt) forgive your mistakes, grant you mercy and increase His blessings on your and your loved ones. Ameen.

Reach for the Peak of Generosity in Ramadan
It was narrated on the authority of Ibn ‘Abbaas that the Messenger of Allah was the most generous of all people, and he used to reach the peak in generosity in the month of Ramadan when Jibreel used to meet him. Jibreel used to meet him every night of Ramadan to teach him the Quran. The Messenger of Allah was the most generous person – even more generous than the strong uncontrollable wind (in readiness and haste to do charitable deeds). [Al-Bukhari and Muslim] In the narration of Imam Ahmad the following addition was mentioned: “He was never asked something without giving it.” [Ahmad] [Shu‘ayb Al-Arnaa’oot: Saheeh]
