20 or so reasons to love Ramadhan

by Simple Muslimah

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

 

*Just some of the reasons to love, and be thankful for living to see another, Ramadhan!*

 

The month of the (revelation of) Quran

 

 

The gates of Paradise are opened wide

 

 

The gates of Hellfire are barred shut

 

 

The devils are chained up

 

 

People are saved from (being destined for) Hellfire every day  

 

 

It’s first third contains days of mercy

 

 

It’s second third contains days of forgiveness

 

 

It’s final third contains days reserved for freeing people from Hellfire 

 

 

It contains a night better than a thousand months of worship (Laylat ul Qadr)

 

 

An ‘umrah in Ramadhan is equal (in reward) to performing Hajj with Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم

 

 

The month of the amazing victory of Badr

 

 

Optional good deeds are rewarded with the reward for obligatory good deeds at any other time

 

 

Obligatory good deeds are rewarded with the reward for seventy obligations at any other time

 

 

Fasting leads to taqwa

 

 

Providing the fasting person with food to break their fast earns the reward of fasting, without diminishing the reward of the one who fasted

 

 

Allah sends down mercy, decreases sins and answers prayers

 

 

Allah watches His slaves (believers) compete with one another (in goodness) and boasts about them to the angels

 

 

Whoever fasts Ramadan with faith and in expectancy of Allah’s reward, his previous sins are forgiven

 

 

The supplications of the fasting person are not rejected

 

 

Whoever fasts one day for the sake of Allah, Allah will place between him and the Fire a ditch as (large as) the distance between the heavens and the earth

 

 

A caller calls out every night: ‘Oh seeker of Good, draw near! Oh seeker of Evil, desist!’ 

 

 

Fasting will be an intercession for the slave on the Day of Resurrection
