    Month of Return to Allah

    the ninth month of the lunar calendar, beginning with the sighting of the new moon.

    The fourth pillar of Islam is fasting.

    Allah prescribes daily fasting for all able, adult Muslims during the whole of the month of Ramadan,

    Exempted from the fast are the very old and the insane. On the physical side, fasting is from first light of dawn until sundown, abstaining from food, drink, and sexual relations. On the moral, behavioral side, one must abstain from lying, malicious gossip, quarrelling and trivial nonsense.

    Those who are sick, elderly, or on a journey, and women who are menstruating, pregnant, or nursing are permitted to break the fast, but must make up an equal number of days later in the year. If physically unable to do so, they must feed a needy person for each day missed. Children begin to fast (and to observe the prayers) from puberty, although many start earlier.

    In addition to the fast proper, one is encouraged to read the entire Quran. In addition, special prayers, called Tarawih, are held in the mosque every night of the month, during which a whole section of the Quran (Juz') is recited, so that by the end of the month the entire Quran has been completed. These are done in remembrance of the fact that the revelation of the Quran to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was begun during Ramadan.

    (Laylat al-Qadr). To spend that night in worship is better than a thousand months of worship, i.e. Allah's reward for it is very great.

    Ramadan has always been a positive turning point in the lives of many Muslims.

    Narrated by Abu Hurairah, May Allah be Pleased with Him said:

    أنَّ النَّبيَّ صلَّى اللهُ عليه وسلَّم صعِد المِنبَرَ فقال: ( آمينَ آمينَ آمينَ ) قيل : يا رسولَ اللهِ إنَّكَ حينَ صعِدْتَ المِنبَرَ قُلْتَ : آمينَ آمينَ آمينَ قال : ( إنَّ جِبريلَ أتاني فقال : مَن أدرَك شهرَ رمضانَ ولَمْ يُغفَرْ له فدخَل النَّارَ فأبعَده اللهُ قُلْ : آمينَ فقُلْتُ : آمينَ ومَن أدرَك أبوَيْهِ أو أحَدَهما فلَمْ يبَرَّهما فمات فدخَل النَّارَ فأبعَده اللهُ قُلْ : آمينَ فقُلْتُ : آمينَ ومَن ذُكِرْتَ عندَه فلَمْ يُصَلِّ عليكَ فمات فدخَل النَّارَ فأبعَده اللهُ قُلْ : آمينَ فقُلْتُ : آمينَ ) (ابن حبان وصححه الألباني)

    Interpreation of the Meaning: "The Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) ascended the Minbar (Pulpit) and said: “Ameen, ameen, ameen.” It was said: ‘O Messenger of Allaah, you ascended the Minbar (Pulpit) and said, ‘Ameen, ameen, ameen.” He said: “Jibreel (Peace be upon him) came to me and said: ‘If Ramadaan comes and a person is not forgiven, he will enter Hell and Allah will cast him far away. Say Ameen.’ So I said Ameen. He said: ‘O Muhammad, if both or one of a person’s parents are alive and he does not honour them and he dies, he will enter Hell and Allah will cast him far away. Say Ameen.’ So I said Ameen. He said: ‘If you are mentioned in a person’s presence and he does not send blessings upon you and he dies, he will enter Hell and Allah will cast him far away. Say Ameen.’ So I said Ameen.”

    Narrated by Ibn Hibbaan, 3/188; classed as saheeh by al-Shaykh al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb, 1679.

    This means that Ramadan should be a turning point in the life of every Muslim: a turning point from sins to repentance, from negligence to diligence, from deviation to guidance and from leaning on the life of this world to hastening towards the Paradise of the Hereafter.

    Indeed, the Holy Qur’an is the most precious guidance to every Muslim and Recitation of the Holy Qur’an is the greatest treasure which drives us to make full advantage of time to increase our rewards. Virtues of Recitation have been approved in the Holy Qur’an and Noble Sunnah as well. The Messenger of Allah (Prayer and Peace of Allah be upon him) said:

    مَنْ قَرَأَ حَرْفًا مِنْ كِتَابِ اللهِ فَلَهُ بِهِ حَسَنَةٌ، وَالحَسَنَةُ بِعَشْرِ أَمْثَالِهَا، لاَ أَقُولُ الْم حَرْفٌ، وَلَكِنْ أَلِفٌ حَرْفٌ، وَلاَمٌ حَرْفٌ، وَمِيمٌ حَرْف
    (Interpretation of meaning):
    “Whoever reads a letter of the Book of Allah will have one hasanah (good deed) for it, and the hasanah (good deed) brings a tenfold reward. I do not say that ‘Alif-Laam-Meem’ is a letter; rather Alif is a letter, Laam is a letter and Meem is a letter.”
    Narrated by at-Tirmidhi, 2910. classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in (Saheeh at-Tirmidhi).

    This great virtue encourages us to devote our time for Recitation continuously, which sustains us to become more closer to Allah the Almighty and to be well-prepared for the day of Judgement via increasing our rewards. A Muslim should be wise to recognize that this life will end and good deeds will be a great help after death. We make Duaa to Allah the Almighty for granting us the blessing to be among righteous Muslims who follow the guidance in the Holy Qur’an. Praise due to Allah the Almighty, Prayer and Peace of Allah the Almighty be upon the Prophet Muhammad, his Family and all his Companions.

    When I was in Iraq, many people switched schedules. They slept during the day and did their business at night.

    What does Allah think about that?
    Allah is merciful

    \\\\

    Narrated Abu Hurayrah: Allah's Apostle said, "Whoever observes fasts during the month of Ramadan out of sincere faith, and hoping to attain Allah's rewards, then all his past sins will be forgiven." (Bukhari 2:37)

    The month of forgiveness has arrived. This is the month of abstinence from the worldly pleasures, the defiance of desires and the month of pure intentions. Allah granted us this month to purify our wayward hearts from the blackness of sins we have inflicted upon it. It is a month to renew and refresh our life to start worshipping Him. It is a month where we should return and repent to Him and beg Him for salvation
    \\\

    What is Ramadan
    Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and the month of fasting for Muslims. Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam; the others are confession of faith, five daily prayers, Zakah (almsgiving) and Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah).

    Ramadan starts upon the sighting of the moon.



    Why Muslims Fast

    Fasting in Ramadan is a main pillar of Islam that helps Muslim grow closer to the One God, Allah. According to the Qur’an “Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed to those before you, so that you may learn self-restraint”. Fasting, which is recognized for its health, spiritual and psychological benefits, is considered by Muslims as a means to improve their moral characters and provides an opportunity for a spiritual renewal.


    Purpose of Fasting

    The real purpose of fasting is not to make us hungry and thirsty, or to deprive us some of our comfort and conveniences but to be conscious of Allah. It is to do one's best to live by His commands and to avoid His prohibitions, fear of Allah, worship of Allah, sincerity in faith, and avoid the disobedience to Allah. Fasting is an invisible act. Only Allah and the person who is fasting know whether he or she is fasting or not. Fasting teaches how to control and discipline our desires. During fasting we learn how to say "no" to things that are otherwise permissible and good, but are forbidden during fasting. When one learns how to say "no" to that which is generally permissible, then one can easily control oneself to avoid that which is forbidden. Through fasting we taste—to some extent—the pain and suffering of those who are poor and destitute. Fasting teaches empathy and sympathy, and it takes away some of our selfishness and self-centeredness.


    How Muslims Fast

    Muslims fast from early dawn to sunset every day throughout the month (approximately 17 hours a day). The fast requires Muslims to abstain from food, drink, marital relations and ill-conduct during the fast.


    Who Fasts

    Fasting in Ramadan is compulsory on all physically and mentally healthy and mature Muslims. Those exempted from fasting are the sick, old, pregnant and menstruating women and travellers. Pregnant and menstruating women and travellers make up the missed days by fasting at a later time.

    Laylatul Qadr

    Hadith

    The importance of this night is also mentioned in hadith, which are the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad as remembered by his companions:

    Whoever establishes the prayers on the night of Qadr out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allahís rewards (not to show off) then all his past sins will be forgiven.

    Hadith, Bukhari Vol 1, Book 2:34.

    Lailatul Qadr (Arabic: لیلة القدر‎) also known as Shab-e-Qadr,is the Night of Destiny, Night of Power, Night of Value, the Night of Decree or Night of Measures,

    It is the anniversary of the night Muslims believe the first verses of the Quran were revealed to the Islamic prophet Muhammad.

    Allah says in the Holy Quran:

    We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power:

    And what will explain to thee what the night of power is?

    The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.

    Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by Allah's permission, on every errand:

    Peace!...This until the rise of dawn!

    óSura 97 (Al-Qadr), āyāt 1-5

    Therefore Allah himself puts this night better than a thousand months.

    So worshipping on this night is better than if you worshipped for a thousand months (thatís about 83 yrs, and 4 months)! SubhanAllah!

    Thus it would be foolish to miss this Night of Power.

    Also the ayah 4 means that on this night, Godís decrees for the next year are brought down to the earthly plane. It is true that everything has been determined since the beginning of eternity and written down in the Preserved Tablet, but it is said that during this night, the Angels are informed of the destinies of the worshippers for the following year. It is a blessed Night. So, everything will be decreed on this Night. It is a night when fates are determined and it is a night of high standing.

    Another important factor related to this night is that in it every decreed matter is conveyed as mentioned in the Holy Quran:

    We sent it (Quran) down on a blessed Night. We were to warn [mankind]. Therein (in that Night) is decreed every matter of ordainment. Amran (i.e. a command or this Quran or His Decree of every matter) from Us. Verily, We are ever sending (the Messenger) (As) a Mercy from your Lord. He is the Hearing, the Knowing. Ad-Dukhaan 44: 3-6

    Laylatul Qadr In Quran

    Verily! We have sent it (this Quran) down in the night of Al-Qadr , And what will make you know what the night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is? The night of Al-Qadr is better than a thousand months. Therein descend the angels and the Ruh by Allahs Permission with all Decrees, Peace! (All that night, there is Peace and Goodness from Allah to His believing slaves) until the appearance of dawn.

    [Al-Qadr 97:1-5]

    The night of Al-Qadr is better than a thousand months

    [Al-Qadr 97:3]

    When is Laylatul Qadr?

    Narrated by Aishah (رضي الله عنها‎) Mohammed (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم‎) says, Search for the Night of Qadr in the odd nights of the last ten days of Ramadaan.

    [Bukhari 3:32:234]
    Most Important Night of Ramadan: The Night of Power ...



    Ten days of Ramadan

    Have the advantage of a private

    the night of Al-Qadr

    21

    Or 23-25-27-29

    1. Verily! We have sent it (this Qur'an) down in the night of Al-Qadr (Decree)

    2. And what will make you know what the night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is?

    3. The night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is better than a thousand months (ie worshipping Allah in that night is better than worshipping Him a thousand months, ie 83 years and 4 months).

    4. Therein descend the angels and the Ruh [Jibrael (Gabriel)] by Allah's Permission with all Decrees,

    5. Peace! (All that night, there is Peace and Goodness from Allah to His believing slaves) until the appearance of dawn.





    162. Say (O Muhammad): "Verily, my Salat (prayer), my sacrifice, my living, and my dying are for Allah, the Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists).___

    It was the practice of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) to strive during the last 10 days of Ramadaan like no other time, to spend the night in prayer, supplication and recitation of the Qur'an. He also used to wake his family up to do the same.

    Abu Hurayrah said that the Prophet (PBUH) said: "Whoever stays up and prays on Laylat al-Qadr out of faith and in the hope of reward, his previous sins will be forgiven."

    (Hadith - Bukhari & Muslim)

    Thus, the Muslim should make good use of the last 10 nights of Ramadaan and spend them in prayer and remembering Allah. We do not know for certain which night Laylat al-Qadr is, but the odd-numbered nights in the last 10 days are the most likely according to the hadith:

    "Seek it in the odd nights of the last third of Ramadan."

    (Hadith - Bukhari)

    The night of the 27th of Ramadaan (ie the night before the fast of the day of the 27th of Ramadaan) has been narrated as being Laylat al-Qadr.

    I can't go a few hours without eating... even less without drinking.... even less without f******.


    I don't get how it is sometimes haram to kiss your wife and sometimes not (during Ramadan).
    I have a big cook.

    Somebody doin' sumpin' `bout Muslim terrorism...

    London Mosque Attacker: 'I Want to Kill All Muslims'
    19 Jun 2017 | Worshippers leaving a London mosque on Monday were helping an unwell elderly man when a van deliberately targeted them.
    Worshippers leaving a London mosque just after midnight on Monday were helping an unwell elderly man when a van deliberately targeted them, eyewitnesses said, driven by an attacker who shouted: "I want to kill all Muslims". The van swerved towards the people outside the Finsbury Park Mosque in north London just as they began to assist the man, who had collapsed. "He turned left into the alleyway, and he just drove at people," eyewitness Abdiqadir Warra told AFP. "Some of them he took a few metres. A man was inside in the van, I saw with my eye, and the old man was also on the ground, and I see some people were also injured. Some of them were very bad."



    Residents near the Finsbury Park Mosque early Monday after a van swerved into people leaving the mosque shortly after midnight, killing one person


    Locals then pounced on the driver and pinned him down while waiting for the police to arrive. "The man, he tried to escape... but they caught the driver," Warra said. Eyewitness Khalid Amin told BBC television that the van turned deliberately left and "just hit the people". One man was trapped under the van and people tried to lift up the vehicle to free him. Amin said that when people seized the driver, "he was shouting: 'All Muslims, I want to kill all Muslims.' Literally, he said that. Word by word." Police said that one man had been arrested at the scene and that no further suspects had been identified.


    'It's a terrorist attack'


    Another eyewitness, who gave his name as Athman, told AFP: "People were screaming: 'It's a terrorist attack, it's an attack, this guy attacked us', and I had to run back and tried to save people who were still alive and giving water, helping the police. "While he was in the police van he was waving for victory, he was very happy. "He chose the time and he chose the place and he chose his target. So, it's the holy month of Ramadan. "The time, he was planning for it, the target, he was planning for it, and the place -- outside a mosque." Mohammed Kozbar, chairman of the Finsbury Park Mosque, called for Prime Minister Theresa May's government to take action.


    The incident came after two terror attacks in London in the past three months involving vehicles ploughing into crowds of people, as well as the suicide bombing attack at a Manchester pop concert in May. "People now have a big question about safety in London after all these terrorist attacks, and we want to assure them that they are safe, and that's why we want to work with the police," Kozbar said. "People feel unsafe because after the terrorist attacks of London, Manchester, the increase of Islamophobia and hate crimes," he added. "This is very worrying to the Muslim community." Several bunches of flowers had been deposited outside the mosque as commuters went to work on Monday morning.

    UK terror attack suspect's family 'in shock'
    Tue, 20 Jun 2017 : The family of a man arrested after a van hit Muslims near a London mosque say they are "devastated".
    The family of a man arrested after a terror attack near a London mosque say they are "shocked" and "devastated". Father-of-four Darren Osborne, 47, was held on suspicion of attempted murder and alleged terror offences after a van hit Muslims in Finsbury Park. They had been helping a man who had collapsed. He later died but it is not clear if it was because of the attack. Met Police chief Cressida Dick and faith leaders were among hundreds who took part in a vigil on Monday night.


    'Hasn't sunk in'


    Ms Dick said the incident was "quite clearly an attack on Muslims", and the community would now see more police, including armed officers, in the area, "particularly around religious establishments". Mr Osborne's mother, sister and nephew said in a statement: "We are massively in shock, it's unbelievable. It still hasn't really sunk in." They added that their "hearts go out to those who've been injured". Police have carried out searches at an address in the Cardiff area. Security Minister Ben Wallace said the suspect was not known to the security services, and was believed to have acted alone. The BBC understands Mr Osborne grew up in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, and has lived at more than one property in Cardiff. He is also believed to have lived in Swindon. The Metropolitan Police said he was being held on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism including murder and attempted murder.



    Map of affected area


    The attack took place shortly after midnight close to Muslim Welfare House on Seven Sisters Road, which is also a community centre. Police say 11 other people were injured - including nine taken to hospital and two treated at the scene. Several of the injured are believed to be seriously hurt. On Monday night, faith leaders addressed a crowd at a vigil outside the nearby Finsbury Park Mosque. After a short silence, chairman of the mosque Mohammed Kozbar told those gathered that the attack was "on our families, on our freedom, on our dignity". He said the man who died was a father of six children. The Bishop of Stepney, Rt Rev Adrian Newman, said "an attack on one faith is an attack on us all".


    It is the fourth terror attack in the UK in three months, after incidents in Westminster, Manchester and on London Bridge. Prime Minister Theresa May said the attack was "every bit as sickening" as the others. "It was an attack that once again targeted the ordinary and the innocent going about their daily lives - this time British Muslims as they left a mosque having broken their fast and prayed together at this sacred time of year," she said. After speaking outside Downing Street, the prime minister visited Finsbury Park Mosque, where she held talks with faith leaders. Labour leader and Islington North MP Jeremy Corbyn also visited the area, telling the BBC that "an attack on a mosque, an attack on a synagogue, an attack on a church is actually an attack on all of us".
