Benefits of Ramadan

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

Today I would like to talk about the benefits and the beauty of the month of Ramadan. This month is for 30 days in which us as Muslims will fast to draw spiritual closeness to our one Lord Allah(SWT). To show how important this month is I am going to list below a few hadiths from the Prophet(SAWS) and various verses from the Quran itself.

Narrated Abu Huraira(r.a): The Prophet said:”… whoever fasts during Ramadan out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah’s rewards, then all his past sins will be forgiven.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari).

“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 rightousness” (Qur’an, al-Baqarah, 2:183)

Abdullah ibn `Amr reported that the Messenger of Allah, salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam, said: “The fast and the Qur’an are two intercessors for the servant of Allah on the Day of Resurrection. The fast will say: ‘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.” [Ahmad]

Abu Umamah reported: “I came to the Messenger of Allah and said: ‘Order me to do a deed that will allow me to enter Paradise.’ He said: ‘Stick to fasting, as there is no equivalent to it.’ Then I came to him again and he said: ‘Stick to fasting.”‘ [Ahmad, an-Nasa’i, and al-Hakim].

Sahl ibn Sa’d reported that the Prophet salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam said: “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.” [al-Bukhari and Muslim].

In another hadith, the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) says, “Ramadan has come to you. (It is) a month of blessing, in which Allah covers you with blessing, for He sends down Mercy, decreases sins and answers prayers. In it, Allah looks at your competition (in good deeds), and boasts about you to His angels. So show Allah goodness from yourselves, for the unfortunate one is he who is deprived in (this month) of the mercy of Allah, the Mighty, the Exalted.” [Narrated by Tabarani]

SubhanAllah, look at all the benefits of fasting in this month and abiding to the law of our Lord. InshaAllah we all continue this and attain Jannah-al-Firdaus. In the link below is something to possibly guide you towards your life as a seeker of truth. Please check out the shopping page also.

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to share with you one of the great character traits that the Prophet(SAW) had: Patience.

Right now we live in a time where the concept of Islamaphobia and the wrong idea of Islam is spreading like wildfire. It is up to us as Muslims to really start implementing the characteristics and moral principles instructed to us by Allah(SWT) and the Prophet(SAW). Our actions will speak louder than words, and what better actions are the ones none other than the Prophet(SAW).

The patience of the Prophet(SAW) was exemplified constantly throughout his life and actions. The patience that the Prophet(SAW) had is incomparable to any ordinary human being. As you will see through the narrations.

Here are some hadiths talking about the patience of the Prophet(SAW):

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “No one can be given a blessing better and greater than patience.” – Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 2, Hadith 548

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “There is no gift better and more vast (that you may be given) than patience.” – Sahih Al-Bukhari, Hadith 8:477

Insha’Allah we all can incorporate this small thing in our lives and really show the world what Islam truly is. Insha’Allah we ask Allah(SWT) for peace, forgiveness, guidance, protection, and Junnah-al-Firdaus.
