Ramadan 2017

Opening the Doors to Heaven

Opening the Doors to Heaven

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) has reported that the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “When the month of Ramadan starts, the doors of heaven are opened, the doors of the hell are closed, and Devils is put into chains” (Sahih Muslim Kitab-ulSaum). In this saying the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) has promised a high place in heaven for one who observes the fast because a believer is enjoined to perform such deeds that please Allah and stay away from bad things.

Allah forgives all previous sins of a person who honestly worships Allah during the month of Ramadan. During this holy month Allah’s blessings are at their peak. The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) has said that during holy Ramadan: “Allah says: ‘Is there anyone who calls on me so that I can accept his prayers? Is there anyone who asks for anything so that I can fulfill his desires? Is there anyone who asks for forgiveness so that I can forgive” (Sahih Bukhafi – Kitab-ul-Tauheed).

As Allah say in Quran:

“The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion (between right and wrong)”. [al-Baqarah 2:185].Almost all Muslims try to give up bad habits during Ramadan and some will try to become better Muslims by praying more or reciting the Qur’an.
