O ye who believe, fasting has been prescribed

O ye who believe, fasting has been prescribed upon you as it was prescribed upon those before you, so that ye may learn self-restraint. (Chapter:2, Verse:183) General Recommendations It is strongly recommended by Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) to observe these practices during Ramadan: To have a light meal before the break of the dawn, known as Suhoor.

To eat three dates and have a drink of water right after sunset, saying this prayer: O God! For Your sake we have fasted and now we break the fast with the food You have given us. To make your meals as light as possible because, as the Prophet put it, The worst thing man can fill is his stomach. (Al-Tirmidhi, no. 2380) General Recommendations To exchange social visits & intensify humanitarian services.

To observe the supererogatory prayers known as Taraweeh. To increase study & recitation of the Quran. To exert the utmost in patience & humbleness. To be extraordinarily cautious in using the senses, the mind and, especially, the tongue; to abstain from careless & gossipy chats & avoid all suspicious motions. Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) said, that Allah Subhanahuwa-Taala said: All the deeds of man are for himself, except for fasting,

which is for Me and I shall reward it MYSELF. (Al-Bukhaari, Al-Fath, no. 1904) Virtues and Benefits of Fasting Fasting will intercede for a person on the Day of Judgement, and will say, O Lord! I prevented him from his food and physical desires during the day, so let me intercede for him. (Reported by Ahmad, 2/174) The smell that comes from the mouth of a fasting person is preferred by Allah than the scent of musk. (Muslim, 2/807)

Whoever fasts one day for the sake of Allah, Allah will remove him a distance of seventy years from the Hell-fire. (Muslim, 2/808) Virtues and Benefits of Fasting Whoever fasts one day, seeking the pleasure of Allah, if that is the last day of his life, he will enter Paradise. (Reported by Ahmad, 5/391) Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) said, Whoever fasts Ramadan out of faith and with the hope of reward, all his previous sins will be forgiven. (Al-Bukhari, Fath, no. 37)

In Paradise there is a gate called al-Rayyaan, through which those who fast will enter, and no one will enter it except them; when they have entered, it will be locked, and no-one else will enter through it. (Al-Bukhari, Fath, no. 1797) In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. Verily, We have sent it (this Quran) down in the night of AlQadr (Decree). And what will make you know what the night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is? The night of Al-Qadr is better than a thousand months (i.e, worshipping Allah in that night is better than worshipping Him a

thousand months, which is 83 years & 4 months). Therein descend the angels and the Ruh [ Jibrael (Gabrial)] by Allahs Permission with all Decrees. (All that night), there is Peace (and Goodness from Allah to his believing slaves) until the appearance of dawn. (Chapter: 97) What to do in the Night of Glory or Power Narrated Aisha (r.a.a.), Allahs messenger (s.a.w.) said, Search for the night of Qadr in the odd nights of the last ten nights of Ramadan. (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol: 3, Hadith no: 234)

Aisha (r.a.a.) narrated, I asked Allahs Messenger (s.a.w.) what should I do if I find the night of Qadr. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) replied, Pray to Allah: O our Lord! You are the most Forgiving, You love to forgive, so forgive us. (Al-Bukhari & Muslim) Give us the strength & patience to fast during the whole month of Ramadan. Accept all our fasts in this holy month. Give us the opportunity to worship in the night of Qadr & accept our worshipping.

Help us to continue all the good deeds we do in this holy month. (AMEEN)
