Ramadhan Reminder 2009

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
Assalaamua'laykum Warahmatullaahi Wabarakaatuh May Allah enable me, my family, my community, all of us and the Ummah to better ourselves in the month of Ramadhan, to acquire Allah Subhana watala Happiness,Mercy and forgiveness. AMEEN Here is a short message about Ramadhan, I hope and pray it inspires myself and all of us to goodness InsyaAllah If you can remember us all in your duas, maybe not by name, but even if you say facebook peeps, Allah knows best what is in your hearts :D always remember when you make Dua for some1else the Angels say Ameen to that Dua to be accepted for yourself, so its a Double BONUS inshaAllah and Allah always knows best Your brother in Islam xx The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) says, "Ramadan has come to you. (It is) a month of blessing, in which Allah covers you with blessing, for He sends down Mercy, decreases sins and answers prayers. In it, Allah looks at your competition (in good deeds), and boasts about you to His angels. So show Allah goodness from yourselves, for the unfortunate one is he who is deprived in (this month) of the mercy of Allah, the Mighty, the Exalted." [Narrated by Tabarani] The preceding hadiths bring attention to readiness and preparation for receiving Ramadan. This is achieved by having a clear understanding of this month in one's mind, and greeting Ramadan with love and yearning. Also, one should have the determination and intention to perform good deeds and worship, and one should lay down a program to accomplish this in the days of the blessed month. It is communally obligatory upon the Muslims to seek the crescent at the time of sunset on the 29th day of Sha`ban, and the 29th day of Ramadan, in order to verify the status of the start and end of their fasting. When seeing the crescent, it is sunnah for the Muslim to supplicate with the following supplication, which has been reported from the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace). On the authority of Talhah ibn `Ubaydullah (may Allah be pleased with him): when the Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) saw the crescent, he used to say, "Oh Allah! Cause it to appear over us with prosperity, faith (Iman), security and Islam. (Then to the moon:) My Lord and your Lord is Allah." [Narrated by Tirmidhi, who said it is a good (hasan) hadith.]
