Taqwa is very comprehensive word. It is inclusive of all
that is good. Its real meaning is to fulfill what is obligated
by Allah (SWT) and to refrain from what Allah(SWT) has
forbidden. It is to be done sincerely for Him and for His
love. It is to be done to attain His rewards and with the fear
of His chastisement.
he seven heavens and the earth and all beings therein
declare His glory: there not a thing but celebrates His praise;
and yet ye understand not how they declare His glory!
Verily He is Oft- Forbearing Most Forgiving. (Isra,17:44)

If someone draws near to God during Ramadan with some good deed he will be like one who
fulfills an obligatory duty in another month.
It is the month of endurance and the reward of endurance Is paradise.
This is the month of sharing with others,
A month In which the believer's provision (RIzk) is increased.
If someone gives one, who has been fasting, something to break the fast, It will provide forgiveness
of his sins and save him from hell, and he will have reward equal to his without his reward being
diminished in any respect.

Some Imams offer five Salahs (Prayers) in Ramadan after the
last Jumu’ah Prayer, with an Adhan and Iqamah for each.
They call it Salat-ul-Qada’ Al-’Umry (making up for Prayer once
in a lifetime).
The common people perform it, as its name denotes, to make
up for all the missed Salahs in one’s entire life;
The Imams offer it to compensate for the imperfect parts of their
Salahs, and they blame everyone who does not offer it
It was neither reported from the Prophet - وسلم عليه هللا صلى- nor
from his Sahabah or the Imams of guidance that they offered
this Salah or urged people to do it.
