Happy Ramadan kareem

All Praise is due to Allah for granting

us life till Ramadan without being

sick, deprived, apostate or alterant to

our religion. We praise Him for being

slaves owned by Him, He has the

authority of reckoning us while we do

not have authority to reckon Him, we

can take nothing but what He gave to

us and we can prevent ourselves

from nothing but what He prevented

us from. We praise Him for His

bounties as we praise Him for His

afflictions. He deserves to be praised

as He says and better than what we

say. All praise is due to Him, to Him

belong all the good and to Him all

affairs return. All praises and thanks

be to Him (both) in the first (i.e. in

this world) and in the last (i.e. in the

Hereafter). And for Him is the

Decision, and to Him we will be


I testify that there is no God except

Allah alone with no partner, and I

testify that Muhammad is His servant

and messenger, prayers and peace of

Allah be upon him and upon whoever

followed his guidance till the Day of


The month of Ramadan came to you

with greetings add loftiness to its

loftiness and augustness to its

augustness. It came with the hunger

and thirst where you see the food in

the rich of your hand but you cannot

eat it, and you find thirst burns your

body and the water is beside you but

you cannot quench your thirst.

Sleeping covers your mind and plays

with your eyelids but Ramadan

wakens you to eat Suhûr. It is a chain

of patience and persistence.

How happy is the fasting person!

How does he gain the reward of his

thirst and hunger from the One that

does not miss the weigh of an atom:

{That is because they suffer neither

thirst nor fatigue, nor hunger in the

Cause of Allâh, nor they take any step

to raise the anger of disbelievers nor

inflict any injury upon an enemy but

is written to their credit as a deed of

righteousness. Surely, Allâh wastes

not the reward of the Muhsinûn.}

Ramadan came to make people return

to their Lord and go to His Houses to

fill them with Tarawêh, remembrance

of Allah and occupy them for

observing worship or acquiring

knowledge. In any place you would

find people in the Masjids stand in

one row (their feet and foreheads are

lined on the earth with no

discrimination between rich or poor,

inferior or superior, pauper or

prince; they all submit themselves to

Allah) so He grants them honor over

all people because of this submission,

if they performed it well with sincere

intention. O Muslims, it is not strange

that Allah grants honor for whoever

submits himself to Him, and that

whoever is an obedient servant to

Allah, Allah makes him a master

among people. And whoever is with

Allah Almighty by following His

legislations, Allah is with him by

victory, success and forgiveness.

O servants of Allah, that is why our

ancestors dominated the world,

acquired glory and established a state

history did not know a state is better,

nobler, more generous or more just

than it. So after the truth, what else

can there be, save error! They were

not empty people; rather they were

people would be mentioned if

Ramadan is mentioned and Ramadan

would be mentioned if they are

mentioned. In Ramadan, Quran had

been revealed upon the master of the

humankind (prayers and peace of

Allah be upon him). By Allah, it is the

life of people at death and it is their

light at darkness.

The month of victories and conquests:

In Ramadan, Allah Almighty granted

victory to the believers in Badr, after

they were humble, and He called it

‘the Day of criterion (between right

and wrong), the Day when the two

forces met’. In Ramadan, Makkah had

been given to our Prophet (prayers

and peace of Allah be upon him), so

he purified it from the filth of

paganism and liberated it from all

forces of retreat and polytheism. In

Ramadan, Allah Almighty granted

Khalid ibn Al-Waleed victory in Al-

Yarmouk battle and granted victory

to Sa’d in Al-Qadisiyyah battle, and

Tarek ibn Zyad in Andalusia at Likka

River, and king Qutuz and Adh-

Dhahir Babers against the armies of

the Mongols, so the root of the people

who did wrong was cut off. And all

the praises and thanks are to Allah,

the Lord of the ‘Âlamîn (mankind,

jinn, and all that exists). The same

occurred in Hetteen and Galolaa

battles. There are a lot of victories in

Ramadan, and this is Ramadan that

gives the Muslim who observes fast

soundness of health beside loftiness

of spirit, the greatness of the self and

the satisfaction of Allah Almighty

before and after anything.

The month of love and rapport:

O people; Ramadan is the month of

love and rapport; so, you should be

more patient and talk better words

and be away from dispute and evil. If

you found mistake from your family,

you should tolerate it. If you found

default, you should correct it and be

patient. If you were encountered with

quarrel do not engage in it; rather

you should say ‘I am a fasting

person’. Otherwise, how could the

person, who does not like this, have

the reward of fasting after abstaining

from eating the lawful food and

having the unlawful food! The

Messenger of Allah (prayers and

peace of Allah be upon him) said:

“Whoever does not give up forged

speech and evil actions, Allah is not

in need of his leaving his food and

drink (i.e. Allah will not accept his

fasting.)” [Reported by Al-Bukhari]

‏«ﻣﻦ ﻟﻢ ﻳﺪﻉ ﻗﻮﻝ ﺍﻟﺰﻭﺭ ﻭﺍﻟﻌﻤﻞ ﺑﻪ، ﻓﻠﻴﺲ ﻟﻠﻪ

ﺣﺎﺟﺔً ﻓﻲ ﺃﻥ ﻳﺪﻉ ﻃﻌﺎﻣﻪ ﻭﺷﺮﺍﺑﻪ ‏» ﺭﻭﺍﻩ


People in Ramadan:

People in Ramadan are different

sitting in groups on the right and on

the left. Some people do not see

Ramadan more than deprivation has

no value and worship there is

nothing to justify it. Therefore, they

intend to breakfast in Ramadan, with

or without giving publicity to this.

Actually, those are fools who became

disbelievers after their belief then

they increased their disbelief and

thought that fasting suppresses the

freedom, which means going after

the whims and the desires and taking

from them with no limits. O servants

of Allah, this is false freedom;

actually, it is disorder in the first

place, then it is humble slavery to the

body at the end.

O servants of Allah; in fact, the

material freedom is the complete

slavery, while on the other hand

slavery to Allah alone is the complete

freedom. The true Muslim has free

soul even if the walls surrounded him

or if he lived in wasteland; he is free

even if he had been chained with

shackles and lashed. I swear by Allah

that this is the true freedom that fits

the dignity of the children of Adam

and it is the opposite to the freedom

of the ghosts and the empty bodies {Is

he whose breast Allâh has opened to

Islâm, so that he is in light from His

Lord (as he who is a non-Muslim)? So

woe to those whose hearts are

hardened against remembrance of

Allâh! They are in plain error!}

[Surat Az-Zumar 39:22]

O servants of Allah, some people do

not see Ramadan more than time of

hunger their abdomens do not afford

and thirst their veins do not afford.

Those people had become sick from

the name of Ramadan; its coming is

hard for them and it is like a chain

ties their desires and whims. They

fast it unwillingly. Such people missed

the pleasure of faith and the

happiness of the righteous people that

is result to their submission to the

Creator Who is exalted in His orders

and legislations: {And your Lord

creates whatsoever He wills and

chooses: no choice have they (in any

matter). Glorified be Allâh, and

exalted above all that they associate

(as partners with Him).} [Surat Al-

Qasas 28:68]

We have nothing to do more than

reminding such people, if they listen,

by what is mentioned by Ibn Rajab,

the memorizer, who said that one of

the boys of Haron Ar-Rasheed was a

fool boy disliked the coming of

Ramadan. Then this boy had epilepsy

and used to suffer from epileptics

attacks many times a day and stayed

in this case till he died before living

till the coming of the next Ramadan!

O Allah, make our end good in all

things and save us from the

humiliation of this worldly life and

the punishment of the Hereafter.

Some people see Ramadan as annual

season for the tables that are full with

all kinds of foods and consider it

good opportunity to play and nightly

entertainment lasts till the dawn. The

days of such people are like their

nights, their air is black and their

eyelids are like the burning coal.

Ramadan came to such people in time

of major catastrophes many Muslims

suffer from; however, they did not

bother themselves by such things. The

supreme kind of kindness toward

Ramadan, that such people may have,

is to make it time for the monotonous

riddles, misleading propagandas or

missed appointments because of

waiting the new vile movies and the

suspicious series that throws sparks

(huge) as Al-Qasr (i.e. a fort or a huge

log of wood) to burn the remains of

chastity and pudency or to condemn

something deserves to be praised and

encouraged. Allah said the truth

when He said: {And most of mankind

will not believe even if you desire it

eagerly} [Surat Yusuf 12:103]

Those who take benefits from


On the other hand; there are some

people, we praise Allah because they

are numerous, who see Ramadan as

month for things are not like any of

the above mentioned things and

deem far above all of these things.

They see it as the month of

refinement by fearing Allah, the

beautiful selflessness and the

generous patience; they knew that

these are lessons learned by fast not

in schools or universities that educate

the mind not the soul and develop

knowledge not strengthen the

relationship with Allah, except those

whom Allah granted mercy to them.

O servants of Allah, those are the

people who take benefits from

Ramadan; those are the people who

find the delight of manhood in its

days beside the true freedom and

patience in face of the hardships.

Those and their likes are the people

to whom the gates of Paradise would

be opened and the gates of Hellfire

would be closed. They are the people

whom Ramadan does not end before

having their sins forgiven and their

faults pardoned. They have self’s

highness, noble goal and righteous

hearts. Actually, those are the people

by whom the statuses could be better

and the societies could be happy.

How urgent is the need of the Muslim

Ummah to such people in each time

and country!

The status of some young men in


The Muslim young men observe fast;

however, most of them fast by just

leaving food and drink and live the

month of Ramadan without

occupying it by something useful.

Actually, their staying on this bad

status emerges consequent problems

in the society and the family makes

the roads and the alleys the only

shelter for them. They disturb a man

and waken another and molest a girl

and annoy another; the roads are

satanic table for them which teaches

them each obscene word and lewd

deed. Their actions say, “The devils of

Ramadan had been chained except


O Muslims, we need something that

makes their behavior good, elevates

their culture and limits their play

and the loss of their times in vain

affairs. We want them to be sure that

unemployment is death and that they

are the people who deserve most to

be resurrected as broken people have

nothing but stagnation and loss.

The status of some women in


As for the Muslim woman, may Allah

help you, she is the sister of the man;

rather she is half of the society and

she gives birth to the second half.

Actually, she is like a complete

society. Thereupon, would all her

efforts in Ramadan be dedicated to

cook and spending the times in

mastering the arts of making foods

and drinks or to going out the house

with clothes that conceal nothing

except to spread infatuation! Would

she indulge in these things and do not

care for whatever makes her close to

her Lord by reciting the Holy Quran,

observing supererogatory prayer,

giving charity or enjoining good and

forbidding evil in her house and her

family that recognize her pioneer in

these matters! Did you forget that she

is the teacher of the righteous

generations! Women’s share for

caring for the month of Ramadan is

not less than the share of men; the

mothers of the believers used to share

the Master of the humankind

(prayers and peace of Allah be upon

him) in his fast, prayer at night and


Al-Bukhari reported in his Sahîh:

“When the last ten nights began

Allah’s Prophet (prayers and peace of

Allah be upon him) kept awake at

night (for prayer and devotion) and

wakened his family.”

‏« ﻛﺎﻥ ﺍﻟﻨﺒﻲ ﺻﻠﻰ ﺍﻟﻠﻪ ﻋﻠﻴﻪ ﻭﺳﻠﻢ ﺇﺫﺍ ﺩﺧﻞ

ﺍﻟﻌﺸﺮ ﺷﺪ ﻣﺌﺰﺭﻩ، ﻭﺃﺣﻴﺎ ﻟﻴﻠﻪ، ﻭﺃﻳﻘﻆ ﺃﻫﻠﻪ ‏»

ﺭﻭﺍﻩ ﺍﻟﺒﺨﺎﺭﻱ

Also, ‘Aishah (may Allah be pleased

with her) asked the Prophet (prayers

and peace of Allah be upon him): “O

Messenger of Allah, if I knew which

night is lailatul Qadr, what should I

say in it?” the Prophet said: “Say, O

Allah you are Oft-forgiver Generous

likes to forgive so forgive

me.” [Authenticated by Al-Albani]

‏«ﻋﺎﺋﺸﺔ – ﺭﺿﻲ ﺍﻟﻠﻪ ﺗﻌﺎﻟﻰ ﻋﻨﻪ – ﺗﺴﺎﺋﻞ ﺍﻟﻨﺒﻲ

O Muslims, Show your efforts to Allah

in this blessed month because there

are grants from Allah Almighty the

one who is deprived from them is

deprived from much good. Also,I  take

glad tiding from the saying of the

Chosen Prophet (prayers and peace of

Allah be upon him) in the Qudsi

Hadeeth: “There is penance for each

deed, and fasting is for Me and I will

reward for it.” [Reported by Al-

Generosity and charity in Ramadan:

Know that the month of Ramadan is

the month of generosity and charity.

The Messenger of Allah (prayers and

peace of Allah be upon him) was the

most generous person and he was

more generous in the month of

Ramadan where he was more

generous than the wind that bears


The good charity is one of the best

generosities in Ramadan, whether it

is money, food or condolence.

Actually, gathering between giving

charity and observing fasting is one

of the things that facilitate entering

Paradise. The Messenger of Allah

(prayers and peace of Allah be upon

him) said: “In Paradise there are

chambers their outward could be

seen from their inward and their

inward could be seen from their

outward.” A Bedouin stood and

asked: “O Prophet of Allah, to whom

are these?” The Prophet said: “They

are for whoever spoke kindly,

presents food, fasts continuously and

prays to Allah at night while people

are asleep.” [Declared good by Al-


‏« ﺇﻥ ﻓﻲ ﺍﻟﺠﻨﺔ ﻟﻐﺮﻓًﺎ ﻳﺮﻯ ﻇﻬﻮﺭﻫﺎ ﻣﻦ ﺑﻄﻮﻧﻬﺎ

ﻭﺑﻄﻮﻧﻬﺎ ﻣﻦ ﻇﻬﻮﺭﻫﺎ، ﻓﻘﺎﻡ ﺇﻟﻴﻪ ﺃﻋﺮﺍﺑﻲ،

So, the Muslim should be kind toward

his brothers in religion, wipe their

tears and end their hunger. Actually,

the rich Muslim who does not feel

that he has duties toward the poor

people has a hard heart that does not

have sympathy and is away from the

mercy of Allah: {Surely, Allâh’s

Mercy is (ever) near unto the good-

doers} [Surat Al-A’râf 7:56]

“The merciful (of people) will be

treated in mercy by the Most

Merciful, have mercy upon who are

on earth you will have mercy upon

you from whom in the

heavens.” [Reported by At-Tirmidhi

and authenticated by Al-Albani]

‏«ﺍﻟﺮﺍﺣﻤﻮﻥ ﻳﺮﺣﻤﻬﻢ ﺍﻟﺮﺣﻤﻦ، ﺍﺭﺣﻤﻮﺍ ﻣﻦ ﻓﻲ

O rich man, it is not magnanimity to

enjoy yourself with decorated clothes

while your Muslim brother is harmed

by the heat of the summer and the

cold of the winter. It is not

magnanimity to prevent the support

and hold your hands out of misery

while the needy people suffer much.

O rich man, fear Allah and move

your eyelids and open your eyes to

see the needy people in front of you.

Imagine that your weak children

have been wronged by time and

turned to be poor have nothing to do:
