In this post you will get collection of various Ramadan Hadith that will actually explain the Virtues of Ramadan. Ramadan is the most important and blessed month according to Islamic belief. Muslims all around the world observe fasting in this month. It is the ninth month of Islamic Lunar Calender. After this month the month Shawwal comes and Muslims celebrates Eid-al-Fitra on 1st Shawwal. In this post I have collected some important Ramadan Hadith explaining the Virtues and Blessings of the month Ramadan.
Important Ramadan Hadith
Aisha reported: I said, “O Messenger of Allah, I see that you know which night is the Night of Decree. What should I say during it?” The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Say: O Allah, you are pardoning and generous. You love to forgive, so forgive me.” Sunan At-Tirmidhi 3513
The above hadith is about Laylat-at-Qadra night. Allah forgives all the sins who worships with depth of his heart in Laylat-at-Qadra night.
Narrated Sahl:The Prophet said, “There is a gate in Paradise called Ar-Raiyan, and those who observe fasts will enter through it on the Day of Resurrection and none except them will enter through it. It will be said, ‘Where are those who used to observe fasts?’ They will get up, and none except them will enter through it. After their entry the gate will be closed and nobody will enter through it.” Sahih al-Bukhari 1896
So if you are observing fast in the month of ramadan then it is a good news for you. You will be entering paradise with the gate called AR-Raiyan on the Day of Ressurrection.
Narrated Abu Huraira:Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “When Ramadan begins, the gates of Paradise are opened.” Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “When the month of Ramadan starts, the gates of the heaven are opened and the gates of Hell are closed and the devils are chained.” Sahih al-Bukhari 1898-1899
This ramadan hadith clears that why there is too less sins happens in the month of ramadan as compared to other month. The reason is Almighty Allah chains up the devils and this leads to less sins happening around us.
Narrated Abu Huraira:The Prophet said, “Whoever does not give up forged speech and evil actions, Allah is not in need of his leaving his food and drink (i.e. Allah will not accept his fasting.)” Sahih al-Bukhari 1903
Now if you are fasting and still involve in evil actions, then your fast is not going to be accepted. Allah basically does not want us to leave only food and drinks also evil action we perform rest of the months. And that is why Allah made fasting compulsory for us. It is for us to control ourselves from evil actions. So don’t only just leave your food and drink, leave every bad habit. Perform 5 time salat, attend taraweeh prayers, and recite quran while you are fasting.
Narrated Anas bin Malik:The Prophet said, “Take Suhur as there is a blessing in it.” Sahih al-Bukhari 1923
Some of my friends are always lazy to wake up for Suhur, so this ramadan hadith is specially for them. Suhur contains blessings. And it is ramadan blessings which is much greater than any other month so please don’t skip this blessing from Almighty Allah.
Narrated Abu Huraira:The Prophet said, “If somebody eats or drinks forgetfully then he should complete his fast, for what he has eaten or drunk, has been given to him by Allah.” Sahih al-Bukhari 1933
This happened to many times, I forgets that I am actually in fast. But don’t worry if it has happened to you as well. The above hadith clears that if you ate something forgetfully it is given to you by Almighty Allah.
Narrated Abu Huraira:I heard Allah’s Messenger saying regarding Ramadan, “Whoever prayed at night in it (the month of Ramadan) out of sincere Faith and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his previous sins will be forgiven.” Sahih al-Bukhari 2008
This hadith is for those who skips Taraweeh prayer. So if you want your sins to be forgiven attend taraweeh prayers at night with full sincerity and ask from Allah.
So these are some Ramadan Hadith explaining about Ramadan and Fasting. Hope Allah will bless us all in this Ramadan. Happy Ramadan.
