Are You Looking For Great Treasures, O You, Fasting Person?

My fasting brother, I put between your hands great treasures about fasting, so hasten to performing good deeds...

* Would you like to read a collective Hadith about the virtues of fasting? Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, narrated that the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, has said, ''Every deed of the son of Adam is for him, a good deed would be multiplied receiving a tenfold to seven hundredfold reward. Allah, the Exalted and Majestic, has said: With the exception of fasting, for it is done for Me and I will give a reward for it, for one abandons his passion, food and drink for My sake. There are two occasions of joy for one who fasts, a joy when he breaks it, and a joy when he meets his Lord, and the breath (of an observer of fast) is sweeter to Allah than the fragrance of musk.'' [Authenticated by Al-Albani]

«كل عمل ابن آدم يضاعف ، الحسنة بعشر أمثالها إلى سبعمائة ضعف، إلى ما شاء الله، قال الله عز وجل: إلا الصوم؛ فإنه لي، وأنا أجزي به، يدع شهوته وطعامه من أجلي، للصائم فرحتان؛ فرحة عند فطره، وفرحة عند لقاء ربه، ولخلوف فمه أطيب عند الله من ريح المسك» صححه الألباني

* Would you like that Allah forgives all your previous sins? Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, narrated that the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, has said, ''Whoever establishes prayers during the nights of Ramadan faithfully out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah's rewards (not for showing off), all his past sins will be forgiven.'' [Reported by Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

«من قام رمضان إيمانا و احتسابا غفر له ما تقدم من ذنبه» رواه البخاري ومسلم

And ''Whoever observes fasting in Ramadan faithfully out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah's rewards (not for showing off), all his past sins will be forgiven.'' [Reported by Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

[Reported by Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

«من صام يوما في سبيل الله، باعد الله وجهه عن النار سبعين خريفا» رواه البخاري ومسلم

Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, narrated that the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, has said, ''[There are] three [persons] whose invocations are not refused: a fasting person, the invocation of the oppressed, and the invocation of the traveler.'' [Authenticated by Al-Albani]

«ثلاث دعوات مستجابات: دعوة الصائم، و دعوة المظلوم، و دعوة المسافر» صححه الألباني

* Would you like to have an intercessor who intercedes for you on the Day of Resurrection?

[Authenticated by Al-Albani]

«من قام مع الإمام حتى ينصرف كتب له قيام ليلة » صححه الألباني

* Would you like to get the same reward of a fasting person? Zaid Ibn Khalid narrated that the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, has said, ''Whoever breaks the fast of a fasting person will get his same reward without decreasing anything from the reward of that fasting person.'' [Reported by At-Tirmidhi and authenticated by Al-Albani]

«من فطر صائماً كان له مثل أجره غير أنه لا ينقص من أجر الصائم شيئاً» رواه الترمذي وصححه الألباني

* Would you like to attain the same reward as a pilgrim to the Sacred House of Allah with the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him?

[Reported by Muslim]

«فإذا جاء رمضان فاعتمر فإن عمرة فيه تعدل حجة» رواه مسلم

* Would you like to pray in a night that is better than eighty three years and four months? Allah Almighty has said, {The night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is better than a thousand months (i.e. worshipping Allâh in that night is better than worshipping Him a thousand months, i.e. 83 years and 4 months).} [Surat Al-Qadr 97:3]

* Would you like to give charity in a time where the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, was used to giving a lot of charity? It is reported in Sahih Al-Bukhari that ''the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, was the most generous of all people, and he used to reach the peak in generosity in the month of Ramadan. He was even more generous than the strong uncontrollable wind.''

«كان النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم أجود الناس بالخير، وكان أجود ما يكون في رمضان،...كان أجود بالخير من الريح المرسلة » رواه البخاري

* Would you like to keep a deserted Sunnah that contains a lot of good deeds (fasting, praying, reciting, remembrance?).

[Reported by Muslim]
