Ramadan Mubarak 🙏🏽may Allah accept it from us

The Messenger of Allah (saw) addressed his companions on the last day of Sha`ban, saying, “Oh people! A great month has come over you; a blessed month; a month in which is a night better than a thousand months; month in which Allah has made it compulsory upon you to fast by day, and voluntary to pray by night. Whoever draws nearer (to Allah) by performing any of the (optional) good deeds in (this month) shall receive the same reward as performing an obligatory deed at any other time, and whoever discharges an obligatory deed in (this month) shall receive the reward of performing seventy obligations at any other time. It is the month of patience, and the reward of patience is Heaven. It is the month of charity, and a month in which a believer’s sustenance is increased. Whoever gives food to a fasting person to break his fast, shall have his sins forgiven, and he will be saved from the Fire of Hell, and he shall have the same reward as the fasting person, without his reward being diminished at all.” [Narrated by Ibn Khuzaymah]

There are three kinds of people whose requests are never rejected: he who fasts until his fast is broken, the imam who is just, and he who has suffered oppression.
God raises up their request towards Him beyond the clouds, and opens the gates of Heaven for it. The Lord then says: “By My Might, I shall indeed help you, even though it may take a while.
—  Prophet Muhammad SAW [Reported by al-Tirmidhī, according to Abū Hurayra.]
God, ever exalted is He, says: “O child of Adam, devote yourself exclusively to My worship, and I shall fill your chest with riches and preserve you from poverty. If you do not do this, I shall fill your hands with labour, and preserve you not from poverty.
—  Prophet Muhammad SAW [Narrated by Abū Hurayra]

On the authority of Anas (may Allah be pleased with him), who said:

I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say: Allah the Almighty said:

O son of Adam, so long as you call upon Me and ask of Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind. O son of Adam, were your sins to reach the clouds of the sky and were you then to ask forgiveness of Me, I would forgive you. O son of Adam, were you to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth and were you then to face Me, ascribing no partner to Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great as it.

at-Tirmidhi & Ahmad ibn Hanbal

The Prophet (ﷺ) said:

“I guarantee a house in Paradise for one who gives up arguing, even if he is right; and a house in the middle of Paradise for one who abandons lying even when joking; and a house in the highest part of Paradise for one who makes his character excellent.”

[Abu Dawud]

عن أنس بن مالك رضي الله عنه، عن الرسول صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: “ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَيَرْضَى عَنِ الْعَبْدِ أَنْ يَأْكُلَ الأَكْلَةَ فَيَحْمَدَهُ عَلَيْهَا أَوْ يَشْرَبَ الشَّرْبَةَ فَيَحْمَدَهُ عَلَيْهَا “ صحيح مسلم حديث ٢٧٣٤

Anas bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Allah is pleased with His slave who says: ‘Al-hamdu lillah (praise be to Allah)’ when he takes a morsel of food and drinks a draught of water." Sahih Muslim 2734 a

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ عَنْ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ :
( مَنْ صَامَ رَمَضَانَ إِيمَانًا وَاحْتِسَابًا غُفِرَ لَهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِنْ ذَنْبِهِ ،
وَمَنْ قَامَ لَيْلَةَ الْقَدْرِ إِيمَانًا وَاحْتِسَابًا غُفِرَ لَهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِنْ ذَنْبِهِ ‏)

Narrated Abu Hurairah :
The Prophet of Allah (Allah blessings and peace be upon him) :
( If anyone fasts during Ramadan because of faith and in order to seek his reward from Allah, his previous sins will be forgiven to him.
If anyone prays in the night of the power (lailat al-qadr) because of faith and in order to seek his reward from Allah his previous sins will be forgiven for him.)

عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنه قال: كنتُ خلفَ رسولِ اللهِ صلَّى اللهُ عليه وسلَّمَ يومًا قال يا غلامُ، إني أعلِّمُك كلماتٍ :” احفَظِ اللهَ يحفَظْك، احفَظِ اللهَ تجِدْه تُجاهَك، إذا سألتَ فاسألِ اللهَ، وإذا استعنْتَ فاستعِنْ باللهِ، واعلمْ أنَّ الأمةَ لو اجتمعتْ على أن ينفعوك بشيءٍ، لم ينفعوك إلا بشيءٍ قد كتبه اللهُ لك ، وإنِ اجتمعوا على أن يضُرُّوك بشيءٍ لم  يضُروك إلا بشيءٍ قد كتبه اللهُ عليك، رُفِعَتِ الأقلامُ وجَفَّتِ الصُّحُفَ “. حسن صحيح  - الترمذي حديث ٢٥١٦

Ibn ‘Abbas narrated:“I was behind the Prophet(s.a.w) one day when he said: 'O boy! I will teach you a statement: Be mindful of Allah and He will protect you. Be mindful of Allah and you will find Him before you. When you ask, ask Allah, and when you seek aid, seek Allah’s aid. Know that if the entire creation were to gather together to do something to benefit you- you would never get any benefit except that Allah had written for you. And if they were to gather to do something to harm you- you would never be harmed except that Allah had written for you. The pens are lifted and the pages are dried.’"  Hasan Sahih - Jami` at-Tirmidhi _ English reference : Vol. 4, Book 11, Hadith 2516

How beautiful is
The journey of Salah:
When you fall to your lowest 
You draw closest to Allah (96:19).
So fall in your sujood and cry,
As you praise your Lord the Most High.

The servant is nearest to his Lord during prostration, so increase your supplications therein.
 -Prophet Muhammad (saww) [Sahih Muslim]

If a praying person knew to what extent he was surrounded by Allah’s Mercy, he would never raise his head from Prostration.
-Imam Ali (as) [Tasnif al-Ghurar al-Hikam]

عَنْ أَبِي مَسْعُودٍ الأَنْصَارِيِّ، قَالَ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ :“‏ مَنْ قَرَأَ بِالآيَتَيْنِ مِنْ آخِرِ سُورَةِ الْبَقَرَةِ فِي لَيْلَةٍ كَفَتَاهُ‏ "‏‏.‏ صحيح البخاري حديث ٥٠٠٩

Narrated Abu Mas`ud Al-Ansari: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, ”If one recites the last two Verses of Surat-al-Baqara at night, it is sufficient for him (for that night).” Sahih al-Bukhari 5040

I cannot get over this hadith 😍

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) (p.b.u.h) said, “Our Lord, the Blessed, the Superior, comes every night down on the nearest Heaven to us when the last third of the night remains, saying: “Is there anyone to invoke Me, so that I may respond to invocation? Is there anyone to ask Me, so that I may grant him his request? Is there anyone seeking My forgiveness, so that I may forgive him?”

(Bukhari 1145)
