QUICK READS____________________________________________________

Mercies of Ramadhan: Sins.  Within the religion of Islaam there are many favors; one is the month of Ramadan, which is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar.

The Prophet – sallallahu alaihi wa sallam – explained to his Ummah that Ramadaan has such a high station that even if a Muslim’s sins were as much as the foam upon the sea, they would be forgiven through fasting in this month.

He – sallallahu alaihi wa sallam – said: “He who fasts in Ramadaan due to eemaan and hoping for reward from Allah then his previous sins are forgiven [3].

Furthermore, in this month people are freed from the Hellfire every day and night, due to Allah’s extreme mercy. The Prophet – sallallahu alaihi wa sallam – told us in this regard that:

“There are, in the month of Ramadaan, in every day and night, those whom Allah grants freedom from the Fire, and there is for every Muslim a supplication which he can make and it will be granted” [4].

This supplication, which is never rejected, occurs at the time of breaking the fast (see Sunan ibn Maajah, 1/577).

[3] Narrated by Aboo Hurairah and collected in Saheeh al-Bukhari (Eng. Trans. Vol.3, no.125) & Saheeh Muslim (Eng. Trans. Vol.1, no.1664). The hadeeth applies to one who affirms the obligation of fasting in Ramadaan and hopes for the reward of doing it, being pleased with it, not feeling aversion to it, nor thinking that standing in its night is a hardship.

[4] Saheeh – Narrated by Jaabir and collected in Musnad Ahmad and al-Bazzar.
