Blessings of Ramadan


Blessings of Ramadan

The sacred month of Ramadan is arriving soon bringing a huge treasure of blessings and forgiveness. The excellence & virtue of Ramadan can be judged by this fact that as soon as this blessed month of Ramadan begins, with its blessings, the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم would convey the glad tidings of Ramadan and congratulate the Blessed Sahabah رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُم upon the arrival of this sacred month of Ramadan. Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ said, the Blessed and Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has stated herald the glad tidings to his blessed Sahabah رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُم: The sacred month of Ramadan, which is extremely blessed, has approached you, Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّhas made fasts obligatory upon you; doors of Jannah are opened in this month and the doors of Hell are closed, even devils are chained up; one of its nights is better than a thousand nights and the one who is deprived of its blessings is absolutely deprived.

(Musnad Imam Ahmad Bin Hanbal, vol. 3, pp. 331, Hadees 9001)
