Ramadhan PPT

  1. 1. Ramadhaan – The month of Mercy, Blessings and Forgiveness.
  2. 2. What Is Ramadhan??  Ramadhan is the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar.  It is the blessed month in which muslims fast from dawn to dusk.  It is the month in which Quran was revealed to Prophet .
  3. 3. The word Ramadhan comes from the Arabic root ramida or ar-ramad, which means scorching heat or dryness and the arabic word for fasting (Saum) literally means “to refrain”-and it means not only refraining from food and drink, but from evil actions, thought, and words. Fasting is fard (obligatory) for every adult Muslim, except those who are ill, travelling, pregnant, going through menstrual bleeding but they have to make up their fast in the other days.
  4. 4. PURPOSE OF RAMADHAN The month of Ramadhan is not like any other month; its purpose is to rid man of those habits which he has accumulated throughout the rest of the year. It is a month that prepares man for the remaining eleven months by teaching him discipline and self control. This blessed month has been sent by Allah to His bondsmen so that can create a connection and draw closer to Allah by reaping the many rewards that lie in this month. In this month we will be given many opportunities to reform ourselves and seek forgiveness for our bad sins.
  5. 5. This is a month of reformation and self reflection, where a believer can ponder of over spirituality and piety and bring a change for the better. The Prophet of Allah has clearly stated: Whoever does not give up lying and evil actions, then Allah is not in need of his leaving his food and drink” [Saheeh al- Bukhari]
  6. 6. THE PURPOSE OF FASTING  It is a Pillar of Islam.  Attaining Taqwa(piety). Allah, the Most High says: “ O you who believe! Fasting has been ordained for you as it was ordained for those before you, so that you may attain Taqwa.” (Soorah Al-Baqarah:183)  Spiritual Purification.  Restraint and Self Discipline.
  7. 7. Benefits of fasting 1. Fasting makes a muslim feel the taste of hunger and thirst which helps him to realize the experience of the poor and sympathezis with those who are needy . 2. It is required that the individual gives up not only food, and sexual relations, but also all forms of evil speech (eg. Lying,backbiting,slander,etc). 3. It has also been noted by medical experts that fasting improves the physical health in numerous ways. 4. Fasting trains the individual for jihad by giving him a good course in self-control.
  8. 8. The Virtues and Merits Of Ramadhaan  “When Ramadhan comes, the gates of Paradise are opened and the gates of hell are cosed and devils are chained”  Umrah in Ramadhan: Equal to one Hajj (pilgrimage) Equal to one Hajj with Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)  Fasting also provides protection from evil for those who sincerely fast. “Fasting is a shield.”  The month of Ramadhaan is the one in which the Quran was sent down, the greatest and the most unique merit of Ramadhaan.
  9. 9. Virtues of fasting  Door of Rayyan: There is in Paradise a door called Al- Rayyan. It is for the fasting Muslims. Only those who fasted the month of Ramadhan will enter it. • Rejoices: There are two types of rejoices for the Muslims who fast. These are: (a) When breaking fast (b) When meeting Allah (SWT) on the day of Judgment • “Whoever fasts during the month of Ramadhaan out of sincere faith and hoping for a reward from Allah will have all of his previous sins forgiven.”
  10. 10. Blessed acts of worship during ramadhan  Taraweeh (Night Prayers) “Whoever performs the Night prayers with sincerity and good intention will receive forgiveness of his past mistakes”.  Seeking Lailatul Qadr (The Night of Power): Allah says: “The night of Al-Qadr(Decree)is better than a thousand months”.Soorah Al-Qadr:3  I’tikaf (Seclusion in the Masjid)
