ramadan_2012

Ibn Rajab (rahimahullaah) said:

“O servants of Allaah, indeed the month of Ramadhaan has prepared to leave, and nothing remains except a few more days.

Whoever has done well during the month should continue to do well, and whoever was deficient, should try to end the month in good, for indeed actions are according to their completion.

Therefore, take advantage of what remains of the month, and give the month the best farewell and peace.”

=== Remember your Muslim Brother and Sisters in Palestine,Syria,Burma and Everywhere in your Dua ===

The Prophet (ﷺ) said:

 Three supplications will not be rejected (by Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala)), the supplication of the parent for his child, the supplication of the o­ne who is fasting, and the supplication of the traveler.  – [al-Bayhaqi, at-Tirmidhi – Sahih]

 

Narrated Abu Huraira (Radi-Allahu ‘anhu): Abu-l-Qasim (the Prophet) (ﷺ) said:

On Friday there is a particular time if a Muslim happens to be praying and invoking Allah for something good during that time, Allah will surely fulfill his request.” The Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) pointed out with his hand. We thought that he wanted to illustrate how short that time was. – [Bukhari Vol. 8 : No. 409]

The hadeeth of Jabir ibn ‘Abdillah (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:

“The day of Friday has twelve hours, in which there is no Muslim slave who asks Allah for anything but He will grant it to him, so seek it in the last hour after ‘Asr.” – [Abu Dawood and an-Nasai]

 

 

The Prophet (ﷺ) said:

“Indeed the fasting person has at the time of breaking fast a prayer (supplication) which is not rejected.” – [Ibn Majah and Al-Hakim]

`A’ishah (radhiallahu `anha) reported that she asked Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ), “O Messenger of Allah! If I knew which night is Laylat ul-Qadr, what should I say during it?” And he instructed her to say:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّكَ عَفُوٌّ تُحِبُّ العَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي

“Allahumma innaka `afuwwun tuh.ibbul `afwa fa`fu `annee –

O Allah! You are the Oft-Pardoning,You love to pardon,so pardon me.”

[Recorded by Ahmad, Ibn Majah, and at-Tirmithi. Verified to be authentic by Al-Albani]

Angels on Laylatul-Qadr (the Night of Decree):  (Translated by Dawud Burbank)

*IMAAM ABOO DAAWOOD AT-TAYAALISEE-rahimahullaah (d. 204 H) reported in his Musnad (no. 2545):
Imraan narrated to us: from Qataadah: from Aboo Maymooonah: from Aboo Hurairah: that Allaah’s Messenger  ( ﷺ) said, concerning Laylatul-Qadr (the Night of Decree):


” لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ لَيْلَةُ السَّابِعَةِ ، أَوِ التَّاسِعَةِ وَعِشْرِينَ ،

إِنَّ الْمَلَائِكَةَ تِلْكَ اللَّيْلَةَ أَكْثَرُ فِي الْأَرْضِ مِنْ عَدَدِ الْحَصَى ” .

<<Laylatul-Qadr is the twenty seventh or the twenty ninth night. The Angels that night upon the earth are more than the number of the pebbles>>.

*Shaikh al-Albaanee -rahimahullaah- said in as-Saheehah (no. 2205)

Reported by at-Tayaalisee in his Musnad(no. 2545),and from him by Ahmad (2/519), and likewise by Ibn Khuzaymah in his Saheeh (2/223): from Imraan al-Qattaan: from Qataadah: from Aboo Maymoonah: from Aboo Hurairah marfoo`an. 
I say: And this is a hasan chain of narration; 
and al-Haafiz remained silent about it in al-Fath(4/209).

‘Aa’ishah (Radi Allaahu anha) said: “When the last ten days (of Ramadaan) would come, the Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam) would spend his night in worship, wake his family (at night), exert himself and tighten his Izaar (waistcloth).” [1]

This hadeeth is proof that the last ten days of Ramadaan have a special virtue over any other (set of days), in which one should increase in obedience and acts of worship, such as prayer, making dhikr (remembrance) and reciting the Qur’aan. (more…)
