IN THE LIGHT OF AHAADEETH
'Ujrah radhiyallahu anhu relates that the Rasoolullah sallallahu
alayhi wasallam said, "Come near the pulpit," and
we came near the pulpit. When he ascended the first step of
the pulpit, he said, "Aameen." When he ascended the
second step, he said, "Aameen." When he ascended the
third step, he said, "Aameen." When he descended,
we said, "O Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam,
we have heard from you today something which we never heard
before." He said, "When I ascended the first step,
jibra'eel 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 your name is mentioned
and he does not read Durood (Salaat) on you. 'I replied: Aameen.
When I ascended the third step he said, 'Woe to him in whose
presence his parents or either one of them attains old age,
and (through failure to serve them) he is not allowed to enter
Paradise.' I said: Aameen." (Bukhaari)
radhiyallahu anhu relates that Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi
wasallam said, "Ramadhaan is a blessed month. In this month
is a night better than a 1000 months. Fasting has been made
compulsory and Taraaweeh Sunnah. Whosoever tries drawing nearer
to Allah by performing any virtuous deed in this month, for
him shall be such reward as if he had performed a 'Fardh' in
any other time of the year. And whoever performs a 'Fardh' for
him shall be the reward of seventy 'Fardh' in any other time
of the year. This is indeed the month of patience, and the reward
for patience is Paradise; it is the month of sympathy with one's
fellowmen; this is the month wherein a true believer's Rizq
is increased." Bayhaqi

are closed. And the Shayaateen are chained. Bukhaari, Muslim
a month, the first part of which brings Allah's Mercy, the middle
of which brings His forgiveness and the last part of which brings
emancipation from the fire of Hell. Bayhaqi
day and night of this month, Allah sets free a great number
of souls from Hell. And for every Muslim during each day and
night, at least one prayer is certainly accepted. (Bazzaa)

given these things specially.
1. The smell
from the mouth of a fasting person is more sweeter in the sight

month one should fast, perform all Salaat with congregation,
engage in recitation of the Qur'aan, perform Taraaweeh, give
charity and do whatever is possible to acquire the Pleasure
of Allah. One should make sure that he does not do anything
contrary to the Command of Allah and the teachings of His beloved
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Allah has made fasting compulsory. It is one of the five pillars
of Islaam. Just like the flower which outsmarts other flowers
in its smell and colour, and like the fruit which surpasses
the other fruits in its taste, the Ibaadah of fasting outweighs
the other forms of devotions in reward. A person gives up everything
whilst fasting, only to please his Almighty Creator. It is one
of the most accepted forms of Ibaadah, because Allah Himself
will give the reward for fasting.
His Angels send Mercy upon those who eat Sehri. Allah has made
Sehri full of mercy and blessings. People of other religions
also fast, but they do not eat Sehri, therefore, to differ from
them, it is advisable to have at least a sip of water with the
intention of Sehri
have been narrated for those who feed others when breaking fast.
A person who feeds another who fasted in order to break the
fast (at sunset), for him there shall be forgiveness and emancipation
from the fire of Hell. Allah grants the same reward to him who
gives a fasting person a mere date or a drink of water to break
Allah has made w0 Rak'at Taraaweeh Sunnah. It is also Sunnah
to complete the full Qur'aan in Taraaweeh. Taraaweeh is Sunnah
for women too.
a night of great blessings. It is better than a thousand months.
The people of the past had very long lives compared to the much
shorter lives of this Ummah. If this Ummah then wished to compete
with them in doing of the good deeds, it would mean that because
of the shorter lives it would be impossible for this Ummah to
either emulate or surpass them. For this reason, Allah in His
Infinite Mercy granted this Ummah, this night of great blessing.
This night has great virtues i.e.
1. The Qur'aan
was revealed in this night.
2. The reward of worship in this night is better than the reward
of 1,000 months.
3. On this night, Jibraeel descends to the earth with a group
of angels, reciting salaam and praying for the blessings for
those they see in Worship and Praises Allah.
4. This is a night of peace. The blessings and mercy descends
right until the break of day.

NIGHT IS LAYLATUL QADR
a difference of opinion amongst the Ulamaa about this night.
According to the vast majority of them, the Laylatul Qadr falls
on the odd dates of the last ten days of the month of Ramadhaan
- i.e. 21, 23, 25, 27, 29. However, one should strive to search
for this great night in all nights of the month of Ramadhaan,
particularly in the last ten nights.
It was the
general practice of Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam to
perform I'tikaaf in the last ten days of Ramadhaan. The women
should also try to perform I'tikaaf in their homes. It is stated
in a Hadeeth: Whoever performs I'tikaaf in the final ten days
of Ramadhaan, for him is the reward of Hajj and Umrah.
