"Ramadan is the (month) in which the Quran was sent down, as a guide to mankind and a clear guidance and judgment (so that mankind will distinguish from right and wrong).." (Q 2:183)
Oh you who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that you many learn piety and righteousness" (Q 2:183)

Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may attain taqwaa." (Q2:183)
The most honored by Allah amongst you are those best in taqwaa."(Q 49:13)
..And it is better for you that ye fast, if ye only knew." (Q 2:184)
"Indeed We have revealed it (Qur'an) in the night of Power. And what will explain to you what the night of Power is? The night of Power is better than a thousand months. Therein descends the Angels and the Spirit (Jibreel) by Allah's permission, on every errand: (they say) "Peace" (continuously) till the rise of Morning!" (Q 97:1-5)
We sent it (this Qur'an) down on a blessed Night. Verily, We are ever warning (mankind of Our Torment). Therein (that Night) is decreed every matter of ordainment. Amran (i.e. a command or this Qur'an or His Decree of every matter) from Us. Verily, We are ever sending (the Messenger). (As) a Mercy from your Lord. Verily! He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower." (Ad-Dukhaan 44: 3-6).

Rasulallah(sallallahualayhi wa salam)said, "When the month of Ramadan starts, the gates of the heaven are opened and the gates of Hell are closed and the devils are chained." (Imam Bukhari)

Narrated Abu Huraira(r.a): Rasulallah(sallallahualayhi wa salam)said:"... whoever fasts during Ramadan out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah's rewards, then all his past sins will be forgiven." (Imam Bukhari).

Salmaan(Radhiyallaho anho)Reports, ”On the Last day of Sha-baan, Rasulallah(sallallahu alayhi wa salam) addressed us and said, O people there comes over you now a great month, a most Blessed month in which lies a night more greater in Virtue than a thousand months. It is a month in which ALLAH has made Fasting compulsory by day. And has made sunnah the Taraaweeh by night. Whosoever intends drawing near to ALLAH by performing any virtuous deed, for such person shall be the reward like the one who had performed a faradh in any other time. And whoever performs a Fardh, shall be blessed with the reward of seventy Faraa-idh in any other time. This is indeed the month of “Patience, and the reward for true patience is Jannah!(paradise). It is the month of sympathy with one’s fellowmen. It is the Month wherein a true believer’s Rizq is increased. Whosoever feeds another who fasted, in order to break the fast (at sunset),for the feeder there shall be Forgiveness of sins and emancipation from the fire of Jahannam(Hell), and for such feeder shall be the same reward as the one who fasted(who he fed) without that persons reward being decreased in the Least. Thereupon we said, Ya Rasulallah(Sallallahu alayhi wa salam)!, not all of us possess the means whereby we can give a fasting person to break his fast.” Rasulallah(Sallallahu alayhi wa salam) replied,”ALLAH grants the same reward to the one who gives a fasting person to break the fast a mere date, or a drink of water, or a sip of milk.” This is a Month, the First of which brings ALLAH’s Mercy, The Middle of which brings His Forgiveness and the Last of which brings emancipation(freedom) from the fire of Jahannam.” Whosoever lessens the burden of servants(bondsmen) in this month, ALLAH will forgive him and free him from the fire of Jahannam. “

“And in this Month four things you should continue to perform in Great number, two of which shall be to please your Rabb(lord), while the other two shall be those without which you cannot do. Those which shall be to please your Rabb(Lord),Are that you should in great quantity bear witness that there is nothing worthy of worship except ALLAH!(Recite the Kalimah Tayyibah –Laa Ilaaha Illallah) and make much Istighfar (beg ALLAH’s forgiveness with Astaghfirullah).” And as for those without which you cannot do, you should beg of ALLAH, Entrance into paradise and ask refuge in Him from Jahannam.

“And whoever gave a person who fasted water to drink, ALLAH shall grant that giver to drink from My fountain, such a drink whereafter that person never again feel thirsty until he enters Jannah.”

This hadith draws our attention to quite a number of important points. Firstly, it should be noted that Rasulallah(sallallahu alayhi wa salam) delivered this sermon at the end of the month of Sha-ban the obvious reason being that he intended to put into our minds and hearts the great importance of ramadhaan so that we could remember and not allow one second of this month to go by without giving it the full importance it deserves. Thereafter our attention is drawn to Laylatul Qadr, about which more is said later. Then our attention is drawn to the fact that fasting has been made compulsory by ALLAH who also made Sunnah the Taraaweeh’salaah by night. From this Hadith it is noted that the command for Taraaweeh prayers too comes from Allah Himself. Besides this in all the Ahadith wherein Rasulullah (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) says, I have made it sunnah", is mainly to emphasize its importance. All the authorities of the Ahlus sunnah wal Jamaa'ah are agreed upon the fact that Taraaweeh is sunnah. Abu Hurayrah relates that Rasulullah (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) said, "My Ummah were given five things for Ramadhaan which were not given to anyone except them. For them, the smell from the mouth of a fasting person is more sweeter to Allah than the fragrant smell of musk. On their behalf the fish in the sea seek forgiveness for the fasting persons until they break their fast. Allah prepares and decorates a special garden in Jannah everyday and then says (to it), "The time is near when faithful servants shall cast aside the great trials of the world and come to you". In this month (for them) evil-minded Shaytaan is chained so as not to reach unto those evils to which they normally reach during other months besides Ramadhaan. On the last night of Ramadhaan they are forgiven".
The Sahaabah R.A. thereupon enquired, "Ya Rasulullah (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) , is that last night Laylatul Qadr? Rasulullah (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) replied, "No. But it is only right that a servant should be given his reward on having completed his service".

Kaab bin Ujra relates, "Rasulullah (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) said, "Come near to the mimbar". And we came near to the mimbar.

When he ascended the First step of the mimbar he said "Aameen". When he ascended the second step of the mimbar he said, "Aameen". When he ascended the third step he said, "Aameen".

When he descended we said, " Ya Rasulullah (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) , we have heard from you today something which we never heard before". He said, When I ascended the first step) Jibra-eel A.S. appeared before me and said, "Woe to him who found the blessed month of Ramadhaan and let it pass by without gaining forgiveness", Upon that I said, "Aameen". When I ascended the second step, he said "Woe to him before whom thy name is mentioned and then does not read Durood (salaat alan Nabi) on you". I replied "Aameen". When I ascended the third step he said, "Woe unto the person in whose presence both parents or one of them attain old age, and (through failure to serve them) is not allowed to enter Jannah" I said "Aameen".

Ubaadah bin Saamit (Radhiallaahu Ánhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said one day when Ramadhaan had drawn near; "The month of Ramadhan, the month of blessings has come to you, wherein Allah turns towards you and sends down to you His special Mercy, forgives your faults, accepts prayers, appreciates your competition for the greatest, good and boasts to the angels about you. So, show to Allah your righteousness; for verily, the most pitiable and unfortunate one is he who is deprived of Allah's Mercy in this month.

In this Hadith, we read about the spirit of competition among the believers, each one trying to do more good deeds than the other. In our own home, I am greatly pleased on seeing how even the womenfolk vie with each other, the one trying to recite more of the Qur'aan than the others, so that, in spite of domestic responsibilities, fifteen to twenty 'juz' (Parts) of the Qur'aan are read by each one daily. I mention this only out of a sense of gratitude to Allah, mentioning His favour, and not to boast of it. May Allah accept their deeds and ours, and increase us all in good deeds.

Abu Said al-Khudri reported that Rasulullah (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam), said: "No servant fasts on a day in the path of Allah except that Allah removes the hellfire seventy years further away from his face." This is related by "the group," except for Imam Abu Dawud.



`Abdullah ibn `Amr reported that Rasulullah (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam), said: "The fast and the Qur'an are two intercessors for the servant of Allah on the Day of Resurrection. The fast will say: 'Ya Rabb (O Lord), I prevented him from his food and desires during the day. Let me intercede for him.' The Qur'an will say: 'I prevented him from sleeping at night. Let me intercede for him.' And their intercession will be accepted." [Imam Ahmad]

Sahl ibn Sa'd reported that the Messenger of Allah (saw): "There is a gate to Paradise that is called ar-Rayyan. On the Day of Resurrection it will say: 'Where are those who fasted?' When the last [one] has passed through the gate, it will be locked." [Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim].



He who is amongst those who pray will be called from the gate of the prayer (in Paradise) and he who is from the people of Jihad will be called from the gate of Jihad, and he who is from those' who give in charity (i.e. Zakat) will be called from the gate of charity, and he who is amongst those who observe fast will be called from the gate of fasting, the gate of Raiyan." Abu Bakr said, "He who is called from all those gates will need nothing," He added, "Will anyone be called from all those gates, O Allah's Apostle?" He said, "Yes, and I hope you will be among those, O Abu Bakr." [Imam Bukhari
