and made it obligatory in the month of Ramadan for every believer. We look forward for the month of Ramadan as fasting is a shield against Hell Fire and an expiation for sins. When Ramadan begins the gates of Paradise are opened, the gates of Hell are closed and the devils are chained. During every night of Ramadan many sinners are released from Hell by Allah's command.
for the night of glory , that is Lailatul Qadr which comes in the last ten days of Ramadan. This night is better than a thousand months in merit and excellence. Whoever prayed during this night out of sincere faith, his previous sins will be forgiven. Also a person who performs the Tarawih prayers is entitled for the same reward.
called Ar-Raiyan for those who observe fasts. It will be said on the Day of Resurrection, "Where are those who observe fasts?"; -They will get up and enter the gate. After their entry the gates will be closed and nobody will enter through it.
many facilities and concessions so that they look upon Ramadan, not as a burden, but as a blessing. Allah (swt) says: "Wa 'anta sumu khairullakum 'in kuntum ta'lamun" (And it is better for you that you fast, if you only knew).
we should welcome Ramadan with true repentance and a strong will to get ourselves forgiven by Allah (swt). Allah has given us special mercy and kindness in this month, so we should do all good deeds and get salvation and release from Hell Fire. We should fast, perform fard and Tarawih prayers, give charity, feed the poor, recite the Quran and seek Lailatul Qadr.
Lastly, I would like to draw your attention dear brothers and sisters to something of great importance. That is 'Intention' and 'Sincerity'. The Prophet (pbuh) has always stressed this point. Without intention and sincerity we cannot earn any reward.
"We revealed it on the night of power. What do you know what the night of power is? Better is the night of power than a thousand months. On the night the angels and the Spirit descend by their Lord's permission,with all His decrees. That night is peace, till the break of dawn." (Surah: Al-Qadr)
is far beyond human realization. It is the night that marked the beginning of the revelation of the Quran to Prophet Muhammad. Allah (swt) says in Sura Ad-Dukhan: "By the Book that makes things clear; we sent it down during a blessed night, for We ever wish to warn. In that night is made distinct every affair of wisdom." During the night of power Allah grants us whatever is best for us, not as we see it, but as He knows it in His perfect knowledge.
because of the descent of the angels and the spirit, by their Lord's permission carrying the Quran. They fill all the space between heaven and earth in a very splendid, universal celebration. Traditions record that Allah ordains the angels to give up their supplications and say Amin after the prayers of the fasting persons.
the decisions for the whole year are announced and the destiny is shaped. The person who misses offering prayers during this night deprives himself of all the bliss and the grace and blessings of Allah.
Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (pbuh) said: "Whoever stood for prayers in the Night of Qadr out of sincere faith and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his previous sins will be forgiven."
