Virtues of Ramadhaan
HADITH - 4
Ubaadah bin Saamit (Radhiallaahu Ánhu) reports that Rasulullah
(Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said one day when Ramadhaan
had drawn near; "The month of Ramadhan, the month of blessings
has come to you, wherein Allah turns towards you and sends down
to you His special Mercy, forgives your faults, accepts prayers,
appreciates your competition for the greatest, good and boasts to
the angels about you. So, show to Allah your righteousness; for
verily, the most pitiable and unfortunate one is he who is deprived
of Allah's Mercy in this month.
In this Hadith, we read about the spirit of competition among
the believers, each one trying to do more good deeds than the other.
In our own home, I am greatly pleased on seeing how even the womenfolk
vie with each other, the one trying to recite more of the Qur'aan
than the others, so that, in spite of domestic responsibilities,
fifteen to twenty 'juz' (Parts) of the Qur'aan are read by each
one daily. I mention this only out of a sense of gratitude to Allah,
mentioning His favour, and not to boast of it. May Allah accept
their deeds and ours, and increase us all in good deeds.
