The Best Part About Ramadan


In this 'Hadith' we learned that Ramadan has three phases to it. The first is Allah's mercy, the second is Allah's forgiveness and the third is to be freed from the fire of hell. And so in this month, the month of mercy and the month of forgiveness and the month of being saved from the fire of hell, it is important for all of us to perfect our repentance to Allah because this is the month of repentance.

The Prophet (SAW) linked so many actions of this month to having our sins forgiven, to having our repentance accepted. Whoever fast the days of Ramadan with faith (Imaan) and expecting Allah rewards will have all of his sins forgiven. Whoever prays at night throughout the nights of Ramadan with faith (Imaan) expecting Allah's reward will have all of his sins forgiven. Whoever prays on 'Laylatul Qadr' with faith (Imaan) expecting Allah's reward will have all of his sins forgiven. Notice "All of the sins forgiven, all of the sins forgiven, all of the sins forgiven", in the famous 'Hadith' of 'Sahih Bukhari' our Prophet (SAW) is climbing the 'Mimbar' and he says "Ameen, Ameen, Ameen", we know this famous 'Hadith', every time he says "Ameen" and they asked him "Why did you say Ameen o Messenger of Allah?", and so he said "Jibreel (angel Gabriel) came to me and told me a certain phrase and then say Ameen to that phrase" and the phrase we're interested in one of them is that "Oh Muhammad (SAW) any one of your Ummah who catches the month of Ramadan and is not able to have his sins forgiven, then may he perish, say Ameen", so the Prophet (SAW) says "Ameen", meaning the month of Ramadan is the month of forgiveness of sins and even the average, mediocre, below average person who is not that practicing has the ability to have all of his sins forgiven in this month, in fact the only person that doesn't have that ability is somebody who is doomed to perish anyway, "O Muhammad any of your Ummah catches the month of Ramadan and yet still does not manage to have his sins forgiven, then may he perish, say Ameen", so Prophet (SAW) said "Ameen"

The Prophet (SAW) never made 'Dua' (Prayer) against a righteous person, against a good person, so the fact that he's making 'Dua' (Prayer) against somebody who doesn't manage to have his sins forgiven in the month of Ramadan shows that this person has no hope whatsoever. If you don't get your act together in Ramadan, if you're not able to get Allah's forgiveness in Ramadan, then really you have no hope whatsoever of Allah's forgiveness. That is the message that is being given. Now that's a scary message but there's also a positive light, and the positive light is what, that therefore the bar has been lowered so much that everybody who puts in the effort, everybody who tries and attempts to have his sins forgiven will indeed have his sins forgiven. That is the beauty and the blessedness of this month.

So we need to realize and appreciate and be aware of the concept of repentance and forgiveness and how do we attain Allah forgiveness. When Adam committed his sin, what did Adam do? He recognized his mistake and he realized he had made a mistake and he asked Allah to forgive him with genuine grief and regret and remorse and repentance, "O our Lord we have wronged ourselves", this is our fault, I made the mistake, "And if You don't forgive us and have mercy on us, we will be of those who are completely destroyed and lost", meaning going to 'Jahannam' (Hell) and Ramadan is the month to be saved from 'Jahannam' (Hell).
