Few Points Valuing Ramadan

Words of wisdom of: Shaykh Mawlana Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahullah

We should consider a few points in relation to valuing time especially in Ramadhan:


Ensure no time is spent in sinful activities. By refraining from mixing and keeping to onesself one is aided greatly in staying away from many sins.


1.  Ensure no time is spent in Laayaani/futile (any activity where there is no benefit in this world or hereafter).


2.  Ensure your time is spent where you will receive the most reward. For example, if one is performing Tilawat of the Qur’aan he can do this in the Atrium of a Masjid or he can perform this in the Masjid itself with the intention of I’etekaaf. The latter will bring more reward and should be chosen.


3.  Keep occupied at all times. By holding fast to a timetable, a person can make the most of this blessed month and he will be able to accomplish much.


4.  Try to spend something in charity every night in Ramadhan. Even little as $1 in charity. If it happens to be Laylah-al-Qadr, you will receive the reward of spending $1 every day for eighty-three years.


5.  Abundance of repentance.


6.  Set achievable targets: For example one should not set such a large quantity worship targets if one cannot carry them out for a sustained period.

Guidelines For The Month Of Ramadhan

By: Shaykh Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahulah

1. We must wake up for suhoor as it is a sunnah of our Rasool sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam. He has informed us that the food of suhoor is full of barakah: “Eat suhoor, because in it lie great blessings.” (Bukhari, Muslim)

We should arrange our time for suhoor in such a way that we are also able to perform at least 4 to 8 rak’ãt of tahajjud together with du’ã for about 15 minutes or more. Rasoolullah sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam has said that the du’ã in the darkness of the night (after tahajjud) is readily accepted by Allah. (Tirmidhi)
