Ramdan Mubarak

‡ BLESSED ARE THE PEOPLE WHO GET THE MONTH OF RAMDAN. ‡ THERE WHERE MANY PEOPLE IN LAST RAMDAN , HOWEVER THEY ARE NOT THIS YEAR. ‡ THUS PLEASE TAKE FULL OPPORTUNITY OF THIS BLESSED MONTH. ‡ NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT THE NEXT SEC.

³O ye who believe, fasting has been prescribed upon you as it was prescribed upon those before you, so that ye may become pious´. (Chapter:2, Verse:183)

´All the deeds of man are for himself, except for fasting, which is for Me and I shall reward it MYSELFµ.

General Recommendations
It is strongly recommended by Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) to observe these practices during Ramadan:
‡ To have a light meal before the break of the dawn,

known as Suhoor. ‡To eat three dates and have a drink of water right after sunset, saying this prayer: ³O God! For Your sake we have fasted and now we break the fast with the food You have given us´. ‡To make your meals as light as possible because, as the Prophet put it, ³The worst thing man can fill is his stomach´. (Al-Tirmidhi, no. 2380)

General Recommendations
‡To exchange social visits & intensify humanitarian services. ‡To observe the supererogatory prayers known as Taraweeh and to try and perfect our five time prayers. ‡To increase study & recitation of the Quran. ‡To exert the utmost in patience & humbleness. ‡To be extraordinarily cautious in using the senses, the mind and, especially, the tongue; to abstain from careless & gossipy chats & avoid all suspicious motions.

General Recommendations
‡ Not to fight with anyone or to argue insultingly. ‡ Not to lie, or to do evil deeds or to backbite, as this can nullify your fast. ‡ To make intention in your heart that you will fast before the fast starts. ‡ To be generous in spending our wealth for charity.

‡ Narrated Abu Huraira(r.a.a) that the Prophet(pbuh) said Whoever does not give up forged speech and evil actions, Allah is not in need of his leaving his food and water.(ie Allah will not accept his fasting) (Al-Bukhari)

Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) said, that Allah Subhanahuwa-Ta¶ala said:

´All the deeds of man are for himself, except for fasting, which is for Me and I shall reward it MYSELFµ.
(Al-Bukhaari, Al-Fath, no. 1904)

Virtues and Benefits of Fasting
‡ Fasting will intercede for a person on the Day of Judgement, and will say, ³O Lord! I prevented him from his food and physical desires during the day, so let me intercede for him.´ (Reported by Ahmad, 2/174) ‡ The smell that comes from the mouth of a fasting person is preferred by Allah than the scent of musk. (Muslim, 2/807) ‡ Whoever fasts one day for the sake of Allah, Allah will remove him a distance of seventy years¶ from the Hell-fire. (Muslim, 2/808)

Virtues and Benefits of Fasting
‡ Whoever fasts one day, seeking the pleasure of Allah, if that is the last day of his life, he will enter Paradise. (Reported by Ahmad, 5/391) ‡ Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) said, ³Whoever fasts Ramadan out of faith and with the hope of reward, all his previous sins will be forgiven.´ (Al-Bukhari, Fath, no. 37) ‡ In Paradise there is a gate called al-Rayyaan, through which those who fast will enter, and no one will enter it except them; when they have entered, it will be locked, and no-one else will enter through it. (Al-Bukhari, Fath, no. 1797)

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. Verily, We have sent it (this Quran) down in the night of AlQadr (Decree). And what will make you know what the night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is? The night of Al-Qadr is better than a thousand months (i.e, worshipping Allah in that night is better than worshipping Him a thousand months, which is 83 years & 4 months). Therein descend the angels and the Ruh [ Jibrael (Gabrial)] by Allah¶s Permission with all Decrees. (All that night), there is Peace (and Goodness from Allah to his believing slaves) until the appearance of dawn. (Chapter: 97)

What to do in the Night of Glory or Power
Narrated Aisha (r.a.a.), Allah¶s messenger (s.a.w.) said, ³Search for the night of Qadr in the odd nights of the last ten nights of Ramadan´. (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol: 3, Hadith no: 234)

Aisha (r.a.a.) narrated, ³I asked Allah¶s Messenger (s.a.w.) what should I do if I find the night of Qadr´. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) replied, ³Pray to Allah: O our Lord! You are the most Forgiving, You love to forgive, so forgive us´. (Al-Bukhari & Muslim) Narrated Abu Huraira(r.a.a) that the Prophet(pbuh) said ³whoever established prayers for the night of Qadr with good faith with a wish of reward from Allah will have alll his previous sins forgiven.

‡ Give us the strength & patience to fast during the whole month of Ramadan. ‡ Accept all our fasts in this holy month. ‡ Give us the opportunity to worship in the night of Qadr & accept our worshipping. ‡ Help us to continue all the good deeds we do in this holy month. ‡ PLEASE PRAY FOR ME AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE AND FOR THE SENDER AND FOR ALL THE PERSONS FROM ADAM (A.S) TO THE LAST PERSON IN THIS WORLD
