The month of Ramadan is the month of Glorious Qur’an because the holy book was revealed in this blessed month. Quran, the word of God, was sent down to us in Ramadan which proves distinction of this month extraordinarily. Ramadan is the month when doors of heaven are open and doors of hell are closed.
Verily, we have sent it (this Qur’aan) down in the Night of Al-Qadr (Decree).
The month of Ramadân in which was revealed the Qur’ân, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion (between right and wrong). (2:185)
While fasting, Muslims refrain from what is ascribed unlawful by Allah (s.w.t). We practice more self-control, avoid sins like lying, quarreling, dishonesty etc. consciously. All these practices for a month make us a higher quality Ummah. Month of Ramadan looks like a crash course designed by Allah (s.w.t) for the development of Taqwa and gratefulness. Practicing Muslims try to focus more on spiritual development instead of lavish Sehris and Aftaris.
RasulUllah (s.a.w) said:
“Whoever draws near to Allah during it (Ramadan) with a single characteristic from the characteristics of (voluntary) goodness, he is like whoever performs an obligatory act in other times. And whoever performs an obligatory act during it, he is like whoever performed seventy obligatory acts in other times.” (Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah, no. 1887)
Sahl ibn Sa’d reported that the Prophet 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.” (Sahih al-Bukhari and Muslim)
Ramadan is the time which can really change us. It has a great capacity to change because we consciously devoid ourselves from essential pleasure like food and water. Because of this, we psychologically get the aptitude of self-control which can be practiced in leaving other unlawful obsessions.
Allah (s.w.t) revealed Surah Al Qadr to explain the great status of LaylatulQadr(the blessed night). This night is comes among the odd nights of last ten days of Ramadan. Muslims do special ebadahs on this night. This is the night which is better than thousands months and whoever is destitute from the goodness of this night is indeed deprived. Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever spends Laylat al-Qadr in prayer out of faith and in the hope of reward, will be forgiven his previous sins.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 1910; Muslim, 760.
The fasting in Ramadan is equal to reward of fasting for ten months. Ahmad (21906) narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever fasts Ramadaan, a month is like ten months, and fasting six days after al-Fitr will complete the year.”
The Taraweeh prayer in every night of Ramadan is a special feast of this month. Whoever prays qiyaam in Ramadaan with the imam until he finishes, it will be recorded for him that he spent the whole night in prayer. (Abu Dawood)
