Some Ayats and Hadith regarding Ramadan Fasting

Fasting in Ramadan is of great importance. ALLAH orders us to have fast during the oth of Ramadan with a complete faith. Fasting doesn’t mean to give you punishment. Always do breakfast at the time of sunrise and then decide to have a fast for whole day till sunset. Hazrat Anas related that Rasulullah said: “Take the Suhoor meal, for there is blessing in it (Bukhari, Muslim)”.

There are many Ramadan Ayats in Quran. We know that the Ayats of Quran are the words of ALLAH so they are true and for our better life.

“The month of Ramadan is that in which the Quran was revealed, guidance to men and clear proofs of the guidance and the distinction; therefore whoever of you is present in the month, he shall fast therein…” Quran 2:185

“God commanded fasting for you just as he commanded it for those who were before you so that you would be upright”. Al-Baqarah 2:183

Also some Ramadan Hadith are also available which are told by the followers of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).These ahadith help us.

Hazrat Abu Huraira said that I have heared Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) to say “ALLAH said Ibn_e_Adam did all deeds for himself accept fasting as fasting is for me and I will return for it. Swear to ALLAH who is the responsible of the life of Muhammad (PBUH) that the smell coming from fasting person mouth is favors than the person brushed his teeth”.

At the time of iftar Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was used to recite a dua (prayer) before breaking his fast that is “O ALLAH, for you have I fasted and with what you have provided do I break fast”.

As the crescent moon is sighted… And the Holy month of Ramadan begins… ALLH will bless us with happiness and grace our home with warmth and grace.
