10 narrations on Ramadaan

by Simple Muslimah

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم


Ten of the sayings of Prophet Muhmmad صلى الله عليه و سلم concerning the month of Ramadhan and fasting


“When the first night of Ramadhan comes, the doors of Paradise will be opened and the doors of Hell will be closed, and the devils will be chained, and it will be said, ‘O you who desires virtue! Come forth and O you who desires evil! Stay behind’, and Allah has people whom He frees from Hell every night (in that month).” (Bukhari and Muslim)


“He who observed the fasts of the month of Ramadan out of eeman (faith) and ihtisaab (hoping for the reward from Allah), then all his past sins will be forgiven.” (Bukhari)


“Ramadan has come to you, a blessed month which Allah has enjoined you to fast, during which the gates of heaven are opened and the gates of Hell are closed, and the rebellious devils are chained up. In it there is a night which is better than a thousand months, and whoever is deprived of its goodness is indeed deprived.” (An Nasaa’I, Ahmad)


“At every breaking of the fast, Allah has people whom He redeems.” (Ahmad)


“Ramadhan has arrived to you, a month of barakah (blessings), Allaah envelops you (with His mercy & blessings), so He descends His mercy, erases the sins, answers your du’aas, and He watches your competition in virtuous deeds and He boasts in front of the angels about you. So let Allaah see the best from you for truly, the miserable one is he who is deprived from the mercy of Allaah (in this month).” (Tabarani)


“In every night & day of Ramadaan, there are people to whom Allah grants freedom from the Fire. And for every Muslim, there is a supplication which he can make and it will be granted.” (Ahmad)


“In Paradise there is a gate called al-Rayyaan, through which those who used to fast will enter on the Day of Resurrection, and no one but they will enter it. It will be said, ‘Where are those who fasted?’ They will get up, and none will enter it but them. When they have entered, it will be locked, and no one else will enter.”  (Bukhari and Muslim)


“Fasting and the Qur’aan intercede for a servant on the Day of Resurrection. Fasting will say: “0 my Lord I prevented him from food and desires so accept my intercession for him” and the Qur’aan will say: “I prevented him from sleep at night, so accept my intercession for him” So their intercessions will be accepted.” (Ahmad)


“Whoever fasted Ramadan with faith and in expectancy of reward, his previous sins are forgiven him.” (Bukhari and Muslim)  


The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) addressed his companions on the last day of Sha`ban, saying, “Oh people! A great month has come over you; a blessed month; a month in which is a night better than a thousand months; month in which Allah has made it compulsory upon you to fast by day, and voluntary to pray by night. Whoever draws nearer (to Allah) by performing any of the (optional) good deeds in (this month) shall receive the same reward as performing an obligatory deed at any other time, and whoever discharges an obligatory deed in (this month) shall receive the reward of performing seventy obligations at any other time. It is the month of patience, and the reward of patience is Heaven. It is the month of charity, and a month in which a believer’s sustenance is increased. Whoever gives food to a fasting person to break his fast, shall have his sins forgiven, and he will be saved from the Fire of Hell, and he shall have the same reward as the fasting person, without his reward being diminished at all.” (Narrated by Ibn Khuzaymah)
