And that reward will be multiplied by ten. I am not saying that ‘Alif, Laam, Meem’ is one letter, rather ‘Alif’ is a letter, ‘Laam’ is a letter and ‘Meem’ is a letter.” (Al-Tirmidhi).

5. Keep Giving Sadaqah

You should keep giving sadaqah when Ramadan is over to help the poor and needy, who always need money, food, clothes, and other basic needs.

Giving sadaqah is one of the good deeds for gaining countless rewards.

Allah says in the Quran:

{The example of those who spend their wealth in the cause of Allah is that of a grain that sprouts into seven ears, each bearing one hundred grains. And Allah multiplies ˹the reward even more˺ to whoever He wills. For Allah is All-Bountiful, All-Knowing}

(Al-Baqarah 2:261).

You can easily donate money, food, and clothes to charity projects. Doing this deed is a reason for increasing money, expiating sins, protecting from the fire, and dispelling grief. It teaches Muslims how to be generous and avoid stinginess.

6. Keep Performing Voluntary Prayers

When Ramadan is over, you can keep performing voluntary prayers by doing the Qiyam Al Layl prayer every night. Qiyam Al Layl is the best prayer after the obligatory ones.

Prophet Muhammed said:

“The best prayer after the obligatory (fard) prayers is prayer at night”. (Sunan an-Nasa’i)

7. Perform Qiyam al-Layl With Even a Few Rakats

Praying Qiyam Al Layl in the last third of the night before Fajr prayer is the best time for making a dua and supplication to Allah as he descends to the lowest heaven to answer worshipers’ prayers.

Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) said:” There is an hour during the night in which no Muslim individual will ask Allah for good in this world and the next without His giving it to him, and that applies to every night.” (Sahih Muslim, 757).

Praying Qiyam al layl brings rewards besides closeness to Allah, expiates sins, raises the prayer’s statutes, and increases chances of dua acceptance.
