The holy month of Ramadan is the ninth Hijri month according to the Arab lunar calendar. It is distinguished as a very distinct month from the rest of the Hijri months for Muslims, as it is the month of fasting, zakat, and worship. In this month, a person draws close to his Lord by the deeds of prayer, the night prayers, and the recitation of the Noble Qur’an.
There are many recommended supplications in Ramadan, including what was narrated from the Messenger, peace be upon him, and some of which are mentioned in the Noble Qur’an, and another about the ancestors of peace. Among these supplications are the following:
- O Allah, end the month of Ramadan with your pleasure, and reward us in it from your punishment and your fire, find us thanks to you, your mercy, your forgiveness and your gratitude, and grant us what you have given to your parents, and make us among those whose divisions you have provided and made him happy with your obedience, so prepare for what is before him, by your mercy, O Most Merciful of the merciful! O Allah, make us among the winners at his seal, and among the rewards of the possessors, and among the blessings of the thankful, and when affliction is among the patient, and do not make us among those who were tempted by the devils and cast him into Hell, by your mercy, O Most Merciful of the merciful.
- O God, this is the month in which You revealed the Qur’an and in it were revealed clear verses of guidance and criterion. And to write me among the pilgrims of Your Sacred House, their pilgrimages are accepted, their efforts are praised, their sins are forgiven, their sins are forgiven, and their sins are forgiven.
- (I said: O Messenger of God, do you think that if I knew which night Laylat al-Qadr is, what should I say on it? He said: Say: O God, You are the Most Forgiving and You love forgiveness, so pardon me).
- (The Prophet, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, used to supplicate saying: Lord, help me and do not help me, help me and do not help me, plan for me and do not deceive me, guide me and make easy for me guidance, and help me against the one who transgresses against me. obedient, for you I have hidden to you, oh, repentant, O Lord, accept my repentance, wash my love, answer my supplication, prove my argument, stop my tongue, calm my heart, and calm my heart.)
- (I said to Umm Salamah: O Mother of the Believers, what was the most frequent supplication of the Messenger of God, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, if he was with you? She said: He used to supplicate the most frequently: O changer of hearts, make my heart firm in my religion. Hearts make my heart firm on your religion? He said: “O Umm Salama, there is no human being except that his heart is between two of the Fingers of God, so whoever wills He will stay, and whoever wills will deviate.
- (Oh God, set right for me my religion, which is the safeguard of my affairs, and set right for me my worldly life in which is my livelihood, and set right my hereafter in which is my return, and make life an increase for me in every good, and make death a relief for me from all evil).
- (Oh God, I seek refuge in You from incapacity and laziness, cowardice, miserliness, senility, the torment of the grave, and the trial of the Antichrist. An insatiable soul, and a supplication that is not answered.
- (Our Lord, do not deviate our hearts after You have guided us, and bestow upon us mercy from You, for You are the Giver).
- (قَلَّما كان رسولُ اللهِ صلَّى اللهُ عليه وسلَّمَ يقومُ من مجلِسٍ حتى يدعُوَ بهؤلاءِ الدَّعَواتِ لِأَصحابِهِ: اللهمَّ اقسِمْ لنا مِنْ خشيَتِكَ ما تحولُ بِهِ بينَنَا وبينَ معاصيكَ، ومِنْ طاعَتِكَ ما تُبَلِّغُنَا بِهِ جنتَكَ، ومِنَ اليقينِ ما تُهَوِّنُ بِهِ علَيْنَا مصائِبَ الدُّنيا، اللهمَّ متِّعْنَا بأسماعِنا، And our eyesight, and we strengthened what you have revived, and made it the heir from us, and make our revenge for those who have been our shadows, and we are victorious to those who have returned, and do not make our affliction in our religion, and we do not.
Desirable deeds in the month of Ramadan
Among the actions that must be done in Ramadan are the following:
- Fasting: Because Ramadan is the month of fasting, and God Almighty has singled out fasting with a reward that is not given to any kind of worship, which is what was mentioned in the honorable hadith: He gives up his desires and his food for my sake for the fasting person, two joys when he breaks his fast and a joy when meeting his Lord, and the smell of the fasting person’s mouth is better in the sight of God than the scent of musk). Fasting is done by abstaining from food, drink and lust, and by keeping away from things that are forbidden to hearing, sight and limbs.
- Qiyaam: There is a great reward in praying at night, especially in the month of Ramadan in which the reward for good deeds is doubled. It is mentioned by the Messenger, peace be upon him, in the noble hadith: his previous sins).
- Charity: It is what was reported from the Messenger, peace be upon him, which was the most generous in the month of Ramadan, and the charity is either feeding the food, or breaking the fast of the fasting person. God Almighty said in his dear book: (And they will feed the food on his love, poor, orphaned, and captive. And it came in the honorable hadith on the authority of the Messenger, peace be upon him: (He who breaks the fast for a fasting person will have a reward similar to his, except that nothing from the reward of the fasting person will be diminished).
- Reading the Qur’an: The month of Ramadan has been closely linked to the reading of the Qur’an, and reading here does not mean the number of pages that are read, but rather aims to reflect on its verses, extract its morals, and imitate its qualities.
- I’tikaf: When it involves seclusion away from people and the worldly life, the desire to do good deeds for the sake of the hereafter, especially on the Night of Decree, and I’tikaf was mentioned by the Messenger, peace be upon him, in the noble hadith: (The Prophet, may God bless him and grant him peace, used to perform I’tikaf for ten days every Ramadan, When the year in which he was arrested, he observed I’tikaf for twenty days.
