Forgiveness and Healing: The Essence of Ramadan’s Second Ashra

“Forgiveness and Healing: The Essence of Ramadan’s Second Ashra”

Dua for Second Ashra: “I ask forgiveness of my sins from Allah, who is my Lord, and I turn towards Him.’ 

As the sacred month of Ramadan unfolds, each Ashra brings with it distinct blessings and virtues. The second Ashra, focusing on forgiveness (Maghfirat), holds special significance not only for individual believers but also for the broader community.

The importance of the second Ashra can be observed in its dua, “I ask forgiveness of my sins from Allah, who is my Lord, and I turn towards Him.” Muslims across the world place emphasis on seeking forgiveness from Allah by strengthening their repentance, seeking mercy, and cleansing their sins. This period, spanning from the 11th to the 20th day of Ramadan, offers a unique opportunity for reflection and collective healing.

Moreover, the second Ashra serves as an emotional reminder of the interconnectedness of humanity. As Muslims pray for forgiveness, they are encouraged to extend the same mercy to others, promoting compassion, understanding, and holistic healing.

The Holy Prophet (SAW) is noted to have said, “The best charity is that given in Ramadan.” The importance and value of charity not only increases in the holy month but also contributes to fostering a culture of empathy and understanding towards the sick and needy.
