Today is 5th of Ramadan. Ramadhan is a purely holy festival which is celebrated in muslim community that would start on 18th June and will continue till 17th July 2015. Fasting is most important for every Muslims all around the world but it is not compulsory for those who are ill, travelling, pregnant, breastfeeding and other disease. Fasting in the month of Ramadhan is Wajib that’s means an obligatory.
THE HADITH ON FASTING
Abu Huraira related that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: Whoever fasts during Ramadan with faith and seeking his reward from Allah will have his past sins forgiven. Whoever prays during the nights in Ramadan with faith and seeking his reward from Allah will have his past sins forgiven. And he who passes Lailat al-Qadr in prayer with faith and seeking his reward from Allah will have his past sins forgiven.
The date are different in different countries as Ramadan date depends on Islamic calender which is different from English calender. The holy festival is for self learning and understanding the value of a life. Besides that Muslims are also supposed to implement message of Quran in their life. Overall, Ramadhan is all about making yourself a better human being.
BUT the most important thing, during Ramadan month we should giving charity more. This is a source of help and support, especially the ones fasting. By joining fasting and giving charity will lead to entering Paradise, by Allah's Leaving and Blessings. There are many hadiths saying and showing the importance of giving charity during Ramadhan month:
THE HADITH ON CHARITY
The Prophet (saws) said, “The best charity is that given in Ramadhan.” [At-Tirmithi].
“In Paradise there are rooms that their inside can be seen from outside and outside can be seen from inside.” He was asked, “For whom are these rooms, O Messenger of Allah?” He said, “They are for he who soften his speech, feeds the people, continues to fast, and prays at night while the people are asleep.” [Ahmad].
“Fasting is a shield and protection from Hellfire” [Ahmad]. He also said regarding charity, “Charity extinguishes the sin just as water extinguishes the fire. The man’s prayer late at night has the same effect.”
