The first Ashra — the first ten days of Ramadan — is dedicated to Mercy (Rahmat). Second Ashra of Ramadan dedicated to Forgiveness (Maghfirat), and third Ashra of Ramadan – to Safety/Salvation (Nijaat). Each Ashra is dedicated to its own particular subject. Muslims focus their attention on the central topic of Ashra, immerse themselves deeply in it and try to get closer to the best qualities Ashra is devoted to in their thoughts and behavior. Each stage has its own Dua.
In the period of the first Ashra, believers seek mercy from Allah Almighty. Dua for the first Ashra: “O! My Lord forgive and have Mercy and You are the Best of Merciful”. During Ramadan, such prayers are considered the most powerful and sacred. At the same time, Muslims themselves should show mercy to those who need it now, choosing more tolerant behavior and acceptance of other people, rather than intolerance and negative emotions.
O Allah, on this day, grant me wisdom and awareness, keep me away from foolishness and pretension, grant me a share in every blessing You send down, by You generosity, O the most Generous.
