Preparing for Ramadan (III) – 17th May 2015

“Whoever fasts during Ramadan with faith and seeking his reward from Allah will have his past sins forgiven. Whoever prays during the nights in Ramadan with faith and seeking his reward from Allah will have his past sins forgiven. And he who passes Lailat al-Qadr (the Night of Power) in prayer with faith and seeking his reward from Allah will have his past sins forgiven.”

[Bukhari, Muslim] 

In order to attain the promised reward from Allah our actions should be based upon belief with sincerity and hope.

We need to purify our hearts from the sicknesses so that Eeman can enter it.

One of the sicknesses of the heart is love of the Dunya.

Love of the Dunya is the head of every sin, which is shown when you prefer your desire and worldly gain, or a beloved’s desire over what Allah loves.

We need to perform good deeds with sincerity and remind ourselves of the goal we want to achieve. We must keep the good intention in mind throughout such that we can attain the complete reward of the particular deed.

In order to do all the good deeds in Ramadan with sincerity, we must train ourselves from now onward.

Faith is situated in the hearts therefore we need to purify our hearts from sicknesses such that we can fill it with faith.

We have to focus on our hearts by:

1) Learning about Allah’s names, attributes, actions, etc.

We have to know the detailed meaning of each name of Allah. We have to know what it implies of an attribute, and the impact of that attribute on us and the entire world. We need to  worship Allah by every name. This is a duty.

The Intentions During the Month of Ramadan

Reported al-Bukhari that Umar bin al-Khaatab  (Radhia-Allaahu ‘anhu) narrated: “I heard Allah’s Messenger (Salla-Allaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam)  saying:

إِنَّمَا الأَعْمَالُ بِالنِّيَّاتِ، وَإِنَّمَا لِكُلِّ امْرِئٍ مَا نَوَى

“The reward of deeds depend on the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended.” [Al-Bukhari: 1/1/1]

As the Month of Ramadan is now at our doors (May Allah make us benefit  from this blessed month) let us maximize our reward and remind ourselves of the multiple rewards we can achieve in this blessed month just by making righteous intentions!

“The matter of intention is business with Allah (Subhaanahu wa Ta’aala). Your rewards for performing good deeds depends on the multiple intentions you have for a certain deed. Read the rest of this entry
