Ramadan Mubarak

Ramadan is the most sacred month in Muslim Calendar and Muslims from the entire world exercise fasting the whole month and ask forgiveness from Allah.

ramadan

The profundity of Ramadan has also been described in various Hadith Mubarakah. It is stated by the Holy Prophet that:

 

“When the month of Ramadan begins, the gates of heavens are unlocked and opened, and gates of hell are shut, and the devils are chained in shackles”

 

How can you spend happy Ramadan in the best way?

 

  1. Spend Ramadan in seeking forgiveness from Allah:

 

We must seek forgiveness and absolution from Allah in the month of Ramadan. It is the month when Allah is the nearest to us and listens to our supplications and implorations, so why not should we ask for pardon and mercy. Prophet Muhammad said:

 

“Whoever fasts during Ramadan out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah’s rewards, then all his past sins will be forgiven.”

 

  1. Recite Holy Quran in Ramadan Mubarak:

 

We sent it (this Qur’an) down on a blessed Night. Verily, We are ever warning (mankind of Our Torment).

 

(Ad-Dukhaan 44: 3-6)

 

Quran was revealed in the month of Ramadan. recitation of the Quran is a virtuous act in the month of Ramadan. Make a schedule in Ramadan to recite Quran whenever you get spare time. Try to keep a pocket-size Quran with you and read few verses of it to earn good deeds in this beautiful month. Recite in a slow and rhythmic tone called Tilawat (Qiratt).

 

  1. Make Iftar dua:

 

Sahl ibn Sa’d narrated that the Holy Prophet said:

 

“There is a gate to Paradise that is called ar-Rayyan. On the Day of Resurrection, it will address: ‘Where are those who fasted?’ When the last [one] has passed through the gate, it will be locked.”

 

[Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim].

 

So it is very beneficial to make Iftar Duaah because the prayers of the faster are never rejected. Record all the prayers you want to make for yourself and your family in a notebook and repeat them throughout the day. Iftar dua is always accepted, as it is mentioned in Hadith.

 

  1. Make Sehri dua:

 

The Sehri Duaah is also likely to be accepted, so you must make Duaah for your children and family to make them good individuals. Also make Ramadan decorations by adorning your house with lights, candles, and flowers. Ramadan should be celebrated because it liberates the Muslims from their sins and grants them absolution.

 

  1. Make up prayers(Naffal) in shab-e-qadar:

 

Nawafil can make your Ramadan more spiritual, hence it is good to increase Ibadah in last ten days of Ramadan. It is stated:

ramadan mubarak

Make Ibadah in Shab-e-qadar because it is better than thousand nights. Try to find Laila-tul-Qadar on odd nights of Ramadan’s last ten days. Memorize some zikr, Durood-e-Pak, or auraad to enchant throughout the day and offer to make-up prayers (Nawafil) on odd nights.

 

Also, Ramadan Duaah is inevitably accepted and the payer maker is awarded with blessings, beneficence, benignity, and benevolence.
