The Month Of Ramadan Has Arrived
From Abu Hurairah [رضي الله عنه] who said: The Messenger of Allaah [ﷺ] used to give good news to his Companions with the arrival of Ramadan, he would say:
«قد جاءكم شهر رمضان شهرٌ مبارك ، كتب الله عليكم صيامه ، فيه تفتح أبواب الجنة وتغلق فيه أبواب الجحيم ، وتغل فيه الشياطين ، فيه ليلةٌ خيرٌ من ألف شهر ، من حُرِمَ خيرها فقد حُرِم.»
❝Indeed the month of Ramadan has arrived, a blessed month. Allaah has prescribed fasting for you. In this month the doors of Paradise are opened and the doors of hell are closed. The devils are shackled. In Ramadan there is a night better than a thousand months, whoever is prohibited from the good in that night then indeed he has been prohibited from good.❞
[Collected By Al-Mundhari In Targheeb Wa Tarheeb | Authenticated By Albaani, (1/490) | Translated By Abbas Abu Yahya Miraath al-Anbiyya]
Ibn Rajab Al-Hanbali said:
❝Some of the scholars said: This Hadeeth is a foundation for some people congratulating others with the month of Ramadan.
How can one not give good news to the believer with the doors of Paradise opening.
How can one not give good news to the sinful that the doors of the Hell fire have been closed.
How can one not give good news to the intelligent one with that the devils are shackled.
Where can this time period be compared to any other time.❞
[Lata'if Al-Ma'arif, (1/158) | Translated By Abbas Abu Yahya Miraath al-Anbiyya]
