Day 27 of Ramadan

 Duas for a distressed

The Prophet (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him) said: "The prayer for one stricken by distress is: "O Allaah, it is Your mercy that I hope for, so do not leave me in charge of my affairs even for a blink of an eye, and rectify for me all of my affairs. None has the right to be worshipped except You." more...

Spinach Triangles
  • 4 cups fresh spinach leaves, chopped
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons ground sumac
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen phyllo dough, thawed
  1. Place the chopped spinach in a bowl with a pinch
  2. of salt, and stir the spinach and salt for about 1 minute until the spinach begins to wilt and release its juice.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the chopped onion with a pinch of salt, and stir for about 1 minute to wilt the onion. Add the wilted spinach, olive oil, sumac, pine nuts, lemon juice, and pepper, and stir to combine. Let the stuffing mixture rest for 5 minutes, and then drain off the liquid.
  4. Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat, and set aside.
  5. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  6. Place a phyllo sheet onto a flat surface, and brush it lightly with melted butter. Place a second sheet on top of the first sheet, and brush with melted butter. Cut each stack of 2 buttered sheets into 5 strips about 3 1/2 inches wide by 13 inches long. Cover strips waiting to be filled with a damp cloth while you fill and roll the triangles.
  7. To fold a triangle, place a tablespoon of filling centered at the top end of a phyllo dough strip, and fold the right corner across and down, to make a pointed, filled dough pocket at the top of the strip. Fold the pocket down one more turn, like folding a flag, to make a triangle shape. Continue to fold the triangle down and across the dough strip until you reach the end of the strip and you have a compact, filled triangle of dough. Repeat with the remaining filling and phyllo dough.
  8. Place the filled triangles onto the prepared baking sheets, and brush them with butter. Working in batches if necessary, bake in the preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes per batch, until the triangles are golden brown. site


Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: Allah's Apostle used to practice Itikaf in the middle ten days of ramadan and once he stayed in Itikaf till the night of the twenty-first and it was the night in the morning of which he used to come out of his Itikaf. The Prophet said, "Whoever was in Itikaf with me should stay in Itikaf for the last ten days, for I was informed (of the date) of the Night (of Qadr) but I have been caused to forget it. (In the dream) I saw myself prostrating in mud and water in the morning of that night. So, look for it in the last ten nights and in the odd ones of them." It rained that night and the roof of the mosque dribbled as it was made of leaf stalks of date-palms. I saw with my own eyes the mark of mud and water on the forehead of the Prophet (i.e. in the morning of the twenty-first).  (Book #33, Hadith #244)
