يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ ٱلصِّيَامُ كَمَا كُتِبَ عَلَى ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ
“O believers! Fasting is prescribed for you—as it was for those before you—so perhaps you will become mindful ˹of Allah˺.”
Furthermore, there are numerous practices that you can participate in during the month of Ramadan, including:
- Read the Quran
In the hadith HR. At-Tirmidhi, narrated by Ibn Mas’ud, Rasulullah SAW said, “Whoever reads one letter from the Quran, for him one goodness, and one kindness is rewarded tenfold. I didn’t say that alif lam mim is one letter; but alif is one letter, lam is one letter and mim is one letter.”
- Performing Sunnah Prayers and Night Prayers (Tahajjud Prayers)
In the hadith HR. Bukhari and Muslim. “Indeed, Allah has made the fasting of Ramadan obligatory and I have made it a sunnah for you to pray at night. So whoever fasts in the month of Ramadan and prays sunnah prayers at night out of faith and hoping for a reward from Allah SWT, he will come out of his sins as on the day he was born to his mother.”
- Donate to charity
Allah SWT promises rewards to those who enjoy donating to charity. Giving alms during Ramadan has many benefits, including erasing sins, receiving shade on the last day, blessing wealth, and receiving multiple rewards. In the month of Ramadan, your charity and good deeds will be multiplied by Allah SWT!
