*Day 9:*

1. *Learn Surah Kawthar:*
Despite being the shortest sūrah in the Qur’ān, there are so many lessons to derive from it. May Allāh swt allow us to drink from the river Kawthar – a river whiter than milk and sweeter than honey.

2. *Sunnah du’ā for today*:
Du’ā to be recited when drinking milk:
اَللّٰهُمَّ بَارِكْ لَنَا فِيهِ وَزِدْنَا مِنْهُ
O’ Allāh swt, grant us blessings in it and grant us more of it [_Mishkāt Sharīf_]

3. *Sunnah ‘amal of the day:*
Eat using your thumb, index and middle finger and lick them clean once done – this helps with digestion too.

4. Pray *2 rak’āt nafl salāh* anytime today with the intention of ‘_istikhāra_’ (seeking Allah’s guidance in any matter).

5. *Compliment someone* – if we don’t like something about a person, there must be another thing that we do like about them. Focus on the good and give them a genuine, heartfelt compliment today.

6. *Muhāsabah*
Search your heart for anger. What do you do when you get angry? Do you control it or do you let it out?

Nabī ﷺ has said, the powerful one is not he who overpowers somebody, but the powerful one is he who restrains himself when angry. [_Bukhāri Sharīf_]

7. *Bonus*:
*Recite salawāt/durūd sharīf*
Nabī ﷺ has said, whoever sends salawāt upon me once, Allāh swt will send salawāt upon him ten-fold, erase ten sins from him, and raise him ten degrees in status. (_Nasai Sharīf_)
