3 Inspirational Stories To Welcome Ramadan 2017 / 1438

 

Ramadhan is coming!  It’s only a week away.

We hope you’re excited about Ramadan as we are….because Ramadhan is a month of blessings!

Let’s just recap what some of these blessings in Ramadan are.

Blessings in Ramadhan

  • The Gates of Heavens are opened – to signify Allah’s blessings
  • The Gates of Hells are closed – to signify Allah’s mercy and forgiveness
  • The devils are chained up…so that Muslims can get closer to Allah without these unseen instigators of sins…
  • Fasting will bring you closer to Allah (attaining taqwa) and clear your sins
  • Multiplication of rewards (ie Hasanat) for doing good in Ramadan.
  • Laylatul Qadr (The Night of Decree) is in the month of Ramadan, where praying on the Night is equal to praying a thousand months (83 years)!

(To read the Quran and Hadith sources of the points above, please visit it here.)

In Ramadhan, feeding the poor and other acts of charity are especially encouraged, whoever  invites others to break the fast, and whoever takes care of the hungry, needy, during Ramadhan will receive equal rewards to the fasting person.  Allah has prepared a room in Paradise for those who feed the poor (source here)

To get you pumped for Ramadhan, we’ve found some true Ramadhan stories by everyday people.
