Holy Month of Ramadan’s Virtue

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and the month in which the Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
The gates of Paradise are opened for a large number of lawful good deeds during this month, which are required to the access to Paradise; and the gates of Hellfire are closed for the short number of sins and evil acts leading to Hellfire.
In Ramadan, devils are chained and tied. So, they fail to lead obedient people astray and turn them from the good righteous deeds. The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said.
A private university lecturer Mawlawi Talabuddin told The Kabul Times that Ramadan is a month that Muslims will further approach to Allah the Almighty.
He added Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) says that holy month of Ramadan enjoys wealth, mercy and forgiveness to all Muslims.
Ramadan is the best month for Allah the Almighty, he went on to say.
He added as our mouths are closed in the holy month of Ramadan, our ears and tongue should be closed.
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) says that fast is a shelter before devil, he stated.
To observe fasting during Ramadan is one of the pillars of Islam. Therefore, whoever belies its duty and denies its obligation is an apostate cast out of the fold of Islam. If he repents, it will be accepted from him. If he does not repent, he is to be killed as a disbeliever. And whoever admits that it is obligatory and breaks his fasting deliberately, without any excuse commits, then, a major sin and a manifest evil act and deserves censure and deterrence.
“If Muslims know about the importance of this month, they would wish to fast all the year,” he said.
One of the virtues of fasting in the month of Ramadan is our eagerness to give to those who are suffering, domestically and around the world.
The Prophet (saw) was the most generous in the month of Ramadan. By fasting in this month, and having a restriction from food and drink, we can focus on the noble consequence of charity. Empathy for the poor. If we realize that the Rizq of the ones suffering is written with one of us, we develop a stronger inclination to give. Charity never decreases our wealth, we are always recompensed as Allah has promised, and this can be in many facets of our lives.
