Ramadhan Mubarak to muslims all over the world.
"Ramadhan is the (month) in which the Quran was sent down , as a guide to the mankind and a clear guidance and judgement( so that mankind will distinguish from the right and wrong)."TMQ( 2:185)
Allah' s Messenger ( peace be upon him) said: Whenever you sight the new moon( of the month of Ramadhan) observe fast, and when you sight it( the new moon of Shawwal) break it, and if the sky is cloudy for you, then observe fast for thirty days.( muslim)
Allah's Apostle said, " When the month of Ramadhan starts, the gates of heaven are opened and gates of hell are close and the devils are chained."( Bukhari)
Narrated by Abu Huraira(r.a): The Prophet said:" ..... whoever fasts during the month of Ramadhan out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah's rewards, then all his past sins will be forgiven."( Bukhari)
The Messenger of Allah ( peace be upon him) addressed his companions on the last day of Shaban, saying," Oh people! A great month has come over you; a blessed month; a month in which a night better than thousand months; month in which Allah has made it compulsory upon you to fast by day, and voluntary to pray by night. Whoever draws nearer( to Allah) by performing any of the (optional) good deeds in this month shall receive the same reward as performing an obigatory deed at any other time, and whoever discharges an obligatory deed in this month shall receive the reward of performing seventy obligations at any other time. It is the month of patience and the reward of patience is heaven. It is the month of charity , and a month in which a beleiver's sustenance is increased. Whoever gives food to a fasting person to break his fast, shall have his sins forgiven, and he will be saved from the Fire of Hell, and he shall have the same reward as the fasting person, without his reward being diminished at all." ( Narrated by Ibn Khuzaymah).
Ramadhan is the month in which Allah(swt) covers you with his blessings, sends down Mercy, decreases sins and answers prayers. So show Allah( swt) the goodness from yourselves, for the unfortunate one is he who is deprived in (this month) of the mercy of Allah.
"Fasting is the shield with which a servant protects himself from the Fire" ( Ahmad)
On the Day Of Judgement, " Fasting will say: O My Lord I prevented him from food and desires so accept my intercession for him." ( Ahmad, al- Haakim, Hasan).
When I step into the month of Ramadhan every year I feel that I have got one more year to seek forgiveness and praise Allah. This is another blessed month of Ramadhan for us to Praise Allah( swt).
Ramadhan Mubarak to Muslims all over the world.
