ntroduction
 All praise be to Allah. We praise Him and seek His Help andGuidance. We seek refuge with Allah against the evils of ourselvesand the evils of our deeds. Whom Allah guides there is no one canmislead and whom Allah misleads no one can guide. And I bear witness that there is no god but Allah Alone who has no partner and I bear witness that Muhammad is His Servant and Messenger.The Blessed month of Ramadan approached full of goodness andblessings. Whoever is given mercy therein shall be successful,whoever is deprived of its good shall be of the losers, and whoevedoes not get provision (of piety) therein for the Last Day shall beblameworthy. Anas ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated:"Ramadan approached, so the Messenger of Allah (peace be uponhim) said: This month has come and therein is one night which isbetter than a thousand month. So, the one who is deprived of itsgood shall be deprived of all good and no one shall be deprived of its good but a loser." (1)Ka`b ibn `Ujrah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that theMessenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: "Gather around thepulpit. So, we gathered. When he ascended the first step, he said: Amen! When he ascended the second step, he said: Amen! Whenhe ascended the third step, he said: Amen! When he descended,we said: O Messenger of Allah, we heard you saying somethingyou did not use to say before. He said: Gabriel came to me andsaid: May the one who attends Ramadan and his sins are notforgiven be wretched! I said: Amen! When I ascended the secondstep, he said: May the one who hears your name but do not sendpeace and blessings upon you be wretched! I said: Amen! When Iascended the third step, he said: May the one whose both parentsare alive or one of them, but does not enter Paradise be wretched!I said: Amen!" (2)
 
 A month that is full of goodness a Muslim should be ready for andexert efforts to seize the opportunity because its days are few andelapse quickly as Allah (Glory be to Him) described: "A fixednumber of days." Therefore, the Prophet (peace be upon him) andhis Companions used to get ready for it since the crescent of Rajab. When they saw the crescent, they supplicated: "O Allah,bless Rajab and Sha`ban for us, and make us reach Ramadan."(3)Ma`la ibn Al Fadl said: They (the Companions) used to invoke Allah (may He be Exalted) six months to reach Ramadan theninvoke Him another six months to accept their deeds which theydid during Ramadan.Yahya ibn Abu Kathir said: Of their supplications: "O Allah! keepme safe until Ramadan, make me benefit from Ramadan, andaccept my deeds."In order to benefit from Ramadan, we should do several stepswhich I shall mention in short as follows:First, preparing oneself.Second, stimulating the spiritual energy.Third, knowing the reality of fasting.I conclude these steps by mentioning the glad tidings of acceptingthe Fast.These steps are:The first step is preparing oneself:In the beginning, dear Muslim brother, I shall ask you somequestions so that you can evaluate yourself and know your condition and to know whether you are foremost in good deeds,you are moderate, or from those who wrong themselves?So, answer sincerely between yourself:
