How to Spend Ramadan

What Should be Done in Ramadhan
admin Ramadan May 11, 2019 Leave a reply

The month of Ramadhaan is the season of divine blessings. It is the month of purification. it is meant for annual renovation of the inner spiritual qualities. It is a golden opportunity for every Muslim to strengthen his ‘Iman, to purify his heart and soul and to remove the evil effects of the sins committed by him. This month invites a Muslim to minimize his other mundane involvement and maximize the acts of worship. One should plan his schedule for this month, before-hand, so as to spare maximum time for ‘ibadah. Here is a brief list of the acts which should be carried out in Ramadhan with due care:

What Should be Done in Ramadhan

  1. To offer every prayer with jama’ah in a masjid.
  2. To rise up a little earlier than the exact time of suhoor and to offer the salah of tahajjud. There is no prescribed number of the Tahajjud prayer.
  3. To offer the nafl prayers of Ishraq (two rak’at after sunrise) Duha (Four rak’at which may be performed at anytime after Ishraq before noon) and Awwabin (six rak’at after maghrib).
  4. The recitation of the Holy Qur’an. No specific limit is prescribed. But one should recite as much of it as he can.
  5. Any Zikr or Tasbeeh. Apart from reciting these words, one hundred times each, at a particular time, they may also be continued frequently throughout the day, even if one is engaged in some light work, when walking and when in bed.
  6. Prayers and supplications: No particular prayer is prescribed. One can pray for everything he needs both in this world and in the Hereafter. However, the supplications of the Holy Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihi Wassallam) are so comprehensive that they encompass all that a Muslim can need in his life and after his death. It is, therefore, much advisable to pray Allah Almighty in the prophetic words used by the Holy Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihi Wassallam) .

There are several books where these prophetic supplications have been compiled. Here is the name of a book which should be kept by every Muslim in his home and be used for praying daily: (i) Al-hisnul-hasin By Allamah al-jazri

  1. Sadaqah (charity): Apart from paying zakah, which is obligatory, one should also pay optional sadaqah in Ramadhan according to his best ability. It is reported in authentic ahadith that the Holy Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihi Wassallam) used to pay special attention in Ramadhan to look after the poor and to help them financially. Therefore, a Muslim Should give as much money in sadaqah as he can afford.

What Should be Avoided in Ramadan

All sinful acts should be avoided completely during the month of Ramadhan. Although the sinful acts are totally prohibited in Shariah, whether in Ramadhan or at any other time, but their prohibition becomes more severe in this month. It is evident that every Muslim avoids certain lawful acts, like eating and drinking, during the fasts. If he continues to commit sins in Ramadhan, it will be a mockery to avoid lawful things and yet be engaged in unlawful acts never allowed in Shari’ah. Thus, the abstinence from sins be comes all the more necessary in this month. Specially the following acts should be avoided totally:

(1) Telling a lie.

(2) Gheebah or backbiting i.e. condemnation of a person in his absence.

3) Quarrelling. (The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam) has particularly forbidden from it when one is in the state of fasting. He has directed us that, if someone wants to quarrel in Ramadhan, we should tell him that we are fasting, hence we are not prepared to indulge in any quarrel.

(4) Eating unlawful things.

(5) Earning through unlawful means.

(6) Any act which may harm a person without a valid cause.

(7) Burdening one’s servants or employees with a toilsome job beyond their ability, without providing them facilities to carry it out.

In short, one should try his best to refrain from all kinds of sins, and protect his eyes, ears, tongue and all other organs from indulging in an unlawful activity. Once a Muslim spends the month of Ramadhan in this way, he will In Shaa Allah, find himself equipped with a spiritual strength which will facilitate for him to conduct a good Islamic life in accordance with the pleasure of Allah.

Virtues of Ramadan

HADITH :

Salmaan (RA) reports, “On the last day of Sha-baan Rasulullah (SAW) addressed us and said, ‘0 people there comes over you now a great month, a most blessed month in which lies a night more greater in virtue than a thousand months. It is a month in which Allah has made Fasting compulsory by day. And has made sunnah the Taraaweeh by night. Whosoever intends drawing near to Allah by performing any virtuous deed, for such person shall be the reward like the one who had performed a fardh in any other time. And whoever performs a fardh, shall be blessed with the reward of seventy faraa-idh in any other time.

This is indeed the month of patience, and the reward for true patience is Jannah ( paradise. It is the month of sympathy with one’s fellowmen. It is the month wherein a true believer’s rizq is increased. Whosoever feeds another who fasted, in order to break the fast at sunset, for the feeder there shall be forgiveness of sins and emancipation from the fire of Jahannam (hell}, and for such feeder shall be the same reward as the one who Fasted (who he fed) without that persons reward being decreased in the least.”

Thereupon we said, “0 messenger of Allah, not all of us possess the means whereby we can give a fasting person to break his fast.” Rasulullah (SAW) replied, “Allah grants the same reward to the one who gives a fasting person to break the fast a mere date, or a drink of water, or a sip of milk.”

“This is a month, the first of which brings Allah’s mercy, the middle of which brings His forgiveness and the last of which brings emancipation from the fire of Jahan-nam.”

“Whosoever lessens the burden of his servants (bonds-men) in this month, Allah will forgive him and free him from the fire of Jahannam.”

“And in this month four things you should continue to perform in great number, two of which shall be to please your Lord, while the other two shall be those without which you cannot do. Those which shall be to please your Lord, are that you should in great quantity bear witness that there is no deity to worship except Allah (i.e. recite the Kalimah Tayyibah Laa llaaha illallaah) and make much Istighfaar beg Allah’s forgiveness with Astagirfirul-laah).” And as for those without which you cannot do, you should beg of Allah, entrance into paradise and ask refuge in Him from Jahannam.”

“And whoever gave a person who fasted water to drink, Allah shall grant that giver to drink from My fountain, such a drink where after that person shall never again feel thirsty until he enters Jannah.”

Reported by ibn Khuzaimah in his ‘Saheeh.
COMMENTARY

All the points which this Hadith draws attention have been further emphasized in numerous other Ahaadith on the great virtues of Ramadhaan. Quite a number of important points are brought to our notice.

Firstly, it should be noted that Rasulullah (SAW) delivered this sermon at the end of the month of Sha-baan the obvious reason being that he intended to put into our minds the great importance of Ramadhaan so that we could remember and not allow one second of this month to go by without giving it the full importance it deserves. Thereafter attention is drawn to Laylatul Qadr, about which more is said later. Then attention is drawn to the fact that fasting has been made compulsory by Allah who also made sunnah the Taraaweeh ‘salaah by night.

From this Hadith it is noted that the command for Taraaweeh prayers too comes from Allah Himself. Besides this in all the Ahadith wherein Rasulullah (SAW) says, I have made it sunnah”, is mainly to emphasize its importance. All the authorities of the Ahlus sunnah wal Jamaa’ah are agreed upon the fact that Taraaweeh is sunnah. (Bur-haan mentions that only the Rawaafidh deny this.)

Maulana Shaah Abdulhaq Dehlawi wrote in his book: “Maa Thabata Bis sunnah” that should the people of any town fail to perform Taraaweeh prayers, the Muslim ruler should make them do so by force.

Alhumdulillah, Ramadan is here. Whatever your goal is during this month, the Qur’an is a fundamental part of our faith. Practice and recitation is important all year round. Easiest steps to complete Quran is making an intention, drawing up a plan, realizing it, and remain consistent. For learning the Holy Quran Online from Pakistani Qari contact us now.

Children, the Quran and our responsibility

Quran and children, both of them have a very intimate connection, it is very important that the experts of the Quran in the world were connected to the Qur’an from childhood. The children who are linked to the quran by their parents at very young age, remained the whole life related to the Qur’an’s . Here I also explain the need to explain that linking with the Qur’aan at childhood does not mean what is going on in our society, return the child back from school to the mosque for half an hour, when he The child is very fatigue, and then parents have kept all the responsibility of Qari Sahib, years of age and parents never meet Qari Sahib.

If you are in the present era Alhamdulillah!The trend of memorizing quran is much higher, but it is usually the same that people sign on certificate of forgiveness and accept their forgiveness for ten people, sitting on their own, namely, we have been forgiven . Therefore, it is often seen that children are not provided a clean environment, the child comes from madrassa and is also benefiting from the shaitani tools of the house, in the shape of films, plays and cartoons, injection of dajjali instruction takes place in head .

Despite increasing the trend of memorization of quran, there are still more than ninty percent of those who do not link the child with quran at childhood. It is also our observation that the children who memorize in their childhood, their memory is stronger than other children, so if the children first start to be memorized at the age of five, then the rest of the things Later the child learns very well. The second thing is also important that the child will be taught in the young age, the same colour will be seen in his practical life. This is why the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to pray salah at the age of seven years, even though the seven-year-old boy is not obliged to pray, yet there are more than seven years in the obligatory prayer, this is the reason for all. This is narrated from Ali ra: أدبوا أولادکم علي ثلاث خصال: حب نبیكم وحب آل بیتہ وتلاوة القرآن, فإن حملة القرآن في ظل عرش الله یوم لاظل إلا ظله مع أنبيائه وأصفيائه ”. “Teach three characteristics to your children: The love of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), the love of Ahlbe bait and the love of quran, because in the shadow of Allah’s Throne, those who remember the Quran On the day when there will be no shadow besides its shadow. ” Imam Ghazali said that: “The child should be taught the Quran and Ahadith Nabiah and righteous people’s events.”

In early times when people used to arrange and give children to their teachers, they request them to teach the children the holy quran first, so that their language is correct. Their souls become pure and piety in their hearts, and their beliefs become strong.

Except for fasting, for it is for Me and I shall reward for it…

admin Online Tutor March 1, 2019 Leave a reply

It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Every deed of the son of Adam will be given a ten-fold reward, up to seven hundred. Allaah says: ‘Except fasting, for it is for Me, and I shall reward for it, for he gives up his desire and his food for My sake…’ and the fasting person has two joys, one joy when he breaks his fast and another when he meets his Lord. And the smell from his mouth is better before Allaah than the fragrance of musk.”

Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5927; Muslim, 1151.

This hadeeth points to the virtue of fasting and the greatness of its status before Allaah. This hadeeth mentions four of the many virtues of fasting:

-1-

Those who fast will be given their reward without measure. All good deeds will be rewarded between ten and seven hundred fold, except fasting, for its reward is not limited to these numbers, rather Allaah will multiply it greatly.

For fasting is part of sabr, and Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Only those who are patient shall receive their reward in full, without reckoning”

[al-Zumar 39:10]

al-Awzaa’i said: “It will not be weighed or measured, rather it will be scooped up in abundance.

-2-

Allaah has connected fasting to Himself, in exclusion to all other deeds, and this is sufficient honour. This – and Allaah knows best – is because fasting covers the entire day, so the fasting person feels that he has lost his desire and he would like to have it back. There is no other act of worship that takes as long as fasting, especially in the summer when days are long and hot.

For a man to give up his desires for the sake of Allaah is an act of worship that is rewarded, for fasting is a secret between a person and his Lord which no one knows of except Allaah. It is a hidden action which people cannot see and in which there is no element of showing off.

-3-

When the fasting person meets his Lord, he will rejoice over his fasting, when he sees the reward for that and the result of the acceptance of the fasting that Allaah enabled him to do.

As for his joy when breaking his fast, that is because he has completed his act of worship and kept it sound and free of anything that will invalidate it, and has managed to refrain from something that he was inclined towards. This is a kind of joy that is praiseworthy because it is joy in obeying Allaah and completing the fast for which reward is promised, as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Say: In the Bounty of Allaah, and in His Mercy —therein let them rejoice.”

[Yoonus 10:58]

-4-

The smell from the mouth of a fasting person is better before Allaah than the scent of musk. This fragrance will appear on the Day of Resurrection because that is the time when the reward of deeds will become apparent. The Prophet(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “… better before Allaah on the Day of Resurrection.” (Muslim, 163).

That also applies in this world because that is when the effect of this worship becomes apparent, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The smell in the mouth of the fasting person is better before Allaah than the scent of musk.” Ibn Hibbaan (8/211).

This smell – even though it is unpleasant to people in this world – is still better before Allaah than the scent of musk, because it is the result of obeying Allaah.

Ibn Hibbaan (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: The signs of the believers on the Day of Resurrection will be the marks of their wudoo’ in this world, by which they will be distinguished from all other nations. And their sign on the Day of Resurrection will be their fasting and the smell of their mouths will be better before Allaah than the scent of musk, so that they will be known among that great gathering by this action. We ask Allaah for that blessing on that Day.” Saheeh Ibn Hibbaan, 8/211.

Another of the virtues of fasting is that Allaah has set aside a special gate of Paradise for those who fast, through which no one else will enter Paradise, as an honour to them. Sahl ibn Sa’d (may Allaah be pleased with him) narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “In Paradise there is a gate called al-Rayyaan, through which those who fast will enter on the Day of Resurrection, and no one will enter it but them. When they have entered it will be closed and no one will enter it.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 1896; Muslim, 1152. “And whoever enters will drink, and whoever drinks will never thirst again.” Saheeh Ibn Khuzaymah, 1903.

But these virtues will only be attained by those who fast sincerely, abstaining from food, drink and sex, and who also abstain from listening to and looking at haraam things, and from haraam earnings, and whose physical faculties abstain from sin and whose tongues abstain from lies, obscene talk and false speech.

This is the fast that is prescribed in Islam and that will bring this great reward. Otherwise, the Prophet(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever does not give up false speech and acting upon it, and offensive speech and actions, Allaah has no need of him giving up his food and drink.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 1903.

It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There are people who fast and get nothing from their fast except hunger, and there are those who pray qiyaam and get nothing from their qiyaam but a sleepless night.”

Narrated by Ahmad, 8693; Ibn Maajah, 1690.

Read the Qur’aan, for it will come on the Day of Resurrection and intercede for its companions

muslim-men-reading-quranIt was narrated that Abu Umaamah al-Baahili (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: “Read the Qur’aan, for it will come on the Day of Resurrection and intercede for its companions…” Narrated by Muslim, 804.

This hadeeth is indicative of the virtue of reading the Qur’aan, and the great reward that it brings, and tells us that it will intercede for its companions on the Day of Resurrection for them to enter Paradise.

It was narrated that al-Nawaas ibn Sam’aan (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: I heard the Prophet(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: “The Qur’aan will be brought on the Day of Resurrection, with its people – those who used to used to act in accordance with it – preceded by Soorat al-Baqarah and Aal ‘Imraan.” The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) likened them to three things, which I did not forget afterwards. He (the Prophet) likened them to two clouds or twoblack canopies with light between them, or like two flocks of birds in ranks pleading for one who recitedthem.”

Narrated by Muslim, 805.

And it was narrated from ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Amr that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Fasting and the Qur’aan will intercede for a person on the Day of Resurrection. Fasting will say, ‘O Lord, I deprived him of food and desires during the day, so let me intercede for him.’ And the Qur’aan will say: ‘I deprived him of sleep during the night, so let me intercede for him.’ So they will both be allowed to intercede.”

Narrated by Ahmad, 6589.

The fasting person should recite Qur’aan a great deal during these blessed days and nights, for reading Qur’aan during Ramadaan is more special than in other months.

He should make the most of his time in the blessed month in which Allaah revealed the Qur’aan.

Reading Qur’aan in the nights of Ramadaan is something special, for the night is free of distractions and it is easier to focus the mind, thus a person can focus on what he is reading and try to understand it. And Allaah is the One Whose help we seek.

It was proven that Jibreel (peace be upon him) used to meet with the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) every night in Ramadaan and study the Qur’aan with him. If dhikr were superior to the Qur’aan or equal to it, they would have recited dhikr all the time or some of the time during their frequent meetings. This hadeeth shows us that it is mustahabb to study the Qur’aan in Ramadaan and to gather to do so, and to practise reciting Qur’aan in front of one who has more knowledge of it.

The righteous salaf of this ummah used to recite Qur’aan a great deal during Ramadaan. When they fasted they would sit in the mosques and say, Let us guard our fast and not backbite about anyone. They would recite Qur’aan in prayer and at other times.

‘Uthmaan (may Allaah be pleased with him) used to read the entire Qur’aan once a day.

Some of the salaf used to complete it when praying qiyaam every three nights.

Some of them used to complete it every seven nights, and some every ten.

In Ramadaan al-Shaafa’i used to complete it sixty times at times other than prayer.

Al-Aswad used to read the whole Qur’aan every two nights in Ramadaan.

Qutaadah used to complete the Qur’aan every seven days all the time, and in Ramadaan every three days, and in the last ten days every night.

These reports about the salaf are well known.

Al-Haafiz Ibn Rajab (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: It was narrated that it is not allowed to read the Qur’aan in less than three days as a habit, but in times of virtue, such as the month of Ramadaan – especially during the nights in which Laylat al-Qadr is sought, or in places of virtue such as Makkah for non-residents who go there, it is mustahabb to read Qur’aan a great deal, seeking to make the most of the virtue of that time or place. This is the view of Ahmad, Ishaaq and other imams, and this is indicated by the actions of others as stated above.

The one who reads Qur’aan must observe the proper etiquette, including having a sincere intention towards Allaah.

He should read in a state of purity (i.e., with wudoo’)

He should use miswaak.

He should think about what he is reading and not rush, rather he should read at a measured pace, and focus on the meanings, because this helps the reader to pronounce the letters correctly and ponder the meanings, and focus with proper humility. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“(This is) a Book (the Qur’aan) which We have sent down to you, full of blessings, that they may ponder over its Verses, and that men of understanding may remember”

[Saad 38:29]

The etiquette of reading includes not breaking off to speak to anyone. Many people sit to read with others next to them, and they often break off to speak to their neighbour. This is not appropriate because it is turning away from reading unnecessarily.

The one who is reading should act in accordance with the Qur’aan, regard as halaal that which it permits and as haraam that which it forbids, so that the Qur’aan will testify for him on the Day of Resurrection and will intercede for him to enter Paradise.

And Allaah knows best.
