Ramadaan Kareem

As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu

Ramadaan Kareem my dear brothers and sisters,



It was narrated that with the coming of every Ramadan, the beloved Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa-salaam) would remind his companions of the significance of the month. This is to remind them to take all the opportunities given by Allah. Another reminder is stated in a hadith:

There comes to you a month which is full of barakah. In this month, it is wajib (compulsory) for you to fast. In this month, all the gates of Heaven are opened and all the gates of Hell are closed and Shaytaan has been chained. In truth, there is a night reserved by Allah, which rewards are better than than the rewards of performing ibadah for 1000 months. Whoever loses this opportunity to receive the blessings, therefore he has been denied of Allah's Rahmaah. (An-Nasaai)

Please remember me in your dua's, insha'Allah.

May Allah Most High, accept our ibadaah and give us tawfiq in all that we do. Ameen.


The Greatest Works In Ramadaan:

Faith
Determining to increase in faith; to draw closer to Allah

Repentance
Committing to leave sin; and to return from every sin back to submission

Obedience
Redressing wrongs and fulfilling obligations

Leaving sin
Reflecting upon what is holding you back - sins, heedless ways - and leaving them

Sincerity
Turning to Allah in all one's life

Wa'alaykum as-salaam wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu my dear sisters,

Jazak'Allah for the comments, and beautiful dua' sister Suhaa. Ameen. The Greatest Works In Ramadaan is from an online lecture (sunnipath.com) I heard by Shaykh Faraz (May Allah have mercy on him), so I don't actually have any source as such, I'm sorry.

Organic Muslimah, jazak'Allah for droping by and leave such lovely comments. You are more than welcome to link me, and insha'Allah I shall do the same. I look forward to reading your Ramadaan Diary :)

Ma'salaama
Farhana
