Virtues of Ramadan

Q. What are the virtues of the month of Ramadan?


A. The virtues of the month of Ramadan are well known to Muslims with fasting being the main Ibadah. It is mentioned in a Hadith, “Whoever fasts in Ramadan out of faith and with the hope of reward, all his previous sins will be forgiven.” (Bukhari)
In this auspicious month, Allah Ta'ala forgives sins, the gates of heaven are opened, the gates of hell are closed, the devils are chained up and in it is a blessed night which is better than 1000 months (83 years and 4 months).

Due to the blessings of Ramadan, a Muslim experiences a refreshment of faith and a renewed vigour to do good deeds. This is facilitated through obligatory fasting during the day and recitation of the Quran in Taraweeh prayers at night.

And Allah Knows Best
