It is finally here! My favorite month besides rabbi ulawwal! And the most special thing about this month for me is that I feel the closest to Allah.
Wishing a Blessed Ramadan to all Muslims across the globe! May Allah accept our fasts and duas..n give us all a chance to not just be better Muslims, but humans as well. InshAllah and Ameen!
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to tell his Companions the good news of the onset of Ramadaan, and urge them to make the most of it. Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said:
“The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said,
‘There has come to you Ramadaan, a blessed month. Allaah has made it obligatory on you to fast (this month). During it the gates of Paradise are opened and the gates of Hell are locked, and the devils are chained up. In it there is a night that is better than a thousand months, and whoever is deprived of its goodness is deprived indeed.'”
