What Should Be Done During This Great Month

Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid

Preparing oneself and one's environment for worship, hastening to repent and turn back to Allah, rejoicing at the onset of the month, fasting properly, having the right frame of mind and fearing Allah when praying Taraweeh, not feeling tired during the middle ten days of the month, seeking Laylat al-Qadr, reading the entire Qur'an time after time, trying to weep and trying to understand what you are reading. ‘Umrah during Ramadan is equivalent to Hajj, and charity given during this virtuous time is multiplied, and I'tikaaf (retreat in the mosque for worship) is confirmed (as part of the Sunnah).

There is nothing wrong with congratulating one another at the beginning of the month. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to tell his Companions the good news of the onset of Ramadan, and urge them to make the most of it. Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

''The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, ‘There has come to you Ramadan, a blessed month. Allah has made it obligatory on you to fast (this month). During it the gates of Paradise are opened and the gates of Hell are locked, and the devils are chained up. In it there is a night that is better than a thousand months, and whoever is deprived of its goodness is deprived indeed.'''
