Importance of prayers in Ramadan

Ramadan is a 8th month of a year. It came after Shaban. Muslims wait for this month whole year and prepare themselves for the Ramadan. In Ramadan ALLAH shower his mercy and forgiveness on people and Muslims do fating in this month for 30 days. There are so many verses of Quran about Ramadan Hadith and ayahs which tells us the importance of Ramadan.

Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said “Whosoever recites only one ‘Ayah’ in Holy Ramadan, He will be awarded as if he has recited the full Quran in other months”.

Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said “Whosoever established prayers on the night of Qadr out of sincere faith and hoping for a reward from ALLAH then all his previous sins will be forgiven.”

Hazrat Sahel bin Saad (R.A) said that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said “Heaven has eight doors and one of them is Bab_ur_Rayyan from which only those people will pass who take fast in Ramadan.”

Hazrat Abuhurairah radiallao anho said that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said “when the month of Ramadan came the gates of heaven are opened and the gated of hell are closed and the devils are chained.”

Surah Al-Bakra (2:185) “Ramadan is a month in which was sent down the Quran as a guide to mankind, also clear signs for guidance and judgment between right and wrong. So everyone of you who is present during that month should spend it in fasting”.

“Ramadan is a month whose beginning is mercy, whose middle is forgiveness and whose end is freedom from the fire.”
