1-Ramadan as an obligatory fasting:
The month of Ramadan is the best month of the year because Allah Almighty has singled him out by making fasting an obligation and the fourth pillar of Islam.
In Ramadan, you must fast. The gates of heaven are opened, the gates of al-Jahim are locked, and the rebellious devils are chained. In it, Allah Almighty has a night that is better than a thousand months.
Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger as saying, “He who fasts during Ramadan with faith and seeking his reward from Allah will have his past sins forgiven; he who prays during the night in Ramadan with faith and seeking his reward from Allah will have his past sins forgiven, and he who passes Lailat al-qadr [Night of Decree] in prayer with faith and seeking his reward from Allah will have his past sins forgiven.” (Bukhari and Muslim.)
2- Piety as the wisdom of fasting Ramadan:
Among the people are those who do not know anything about Ramadan except for tables and various types of restaurants, where they spend their day sleeping.
Glory be to Allah. They are ignorant of Allah’s wisdom in fasting. The wisdom for which fasting has been prescribed is piety.
Piety is the balance of deeds. The fasting person is hungry, able to eat, and thirsty, able to drink, but faith and piety are achieved. The tongues are fasting from bad words, the ears are fasting from everything that is not permissible, and the eyes are fasting from looking at the forbidden.
3- Ramadan& Mercy& righteousness:
The month of Ramadan is greeted with sincere repentance and a return to the Lord of the creatures. It is obligatory to quit sin at all times, especially in the month of mercy, forgiveness, and freedom from Hellfire. What does a person lose when Ramadan enters him, then leaves, and he does not add a good deed to it, and does not draw closer to Allah Almighty in any way? This is a clear loss.
The month of Ramadan is the month of goodness, righteousness, and growth; it is also the month of generosity and giving. Do not forget your brothers, the poor and needy, the widows and the needy, the orphans.
The Prophet (PBUH) was the most generous person, and he used to become more so (generous), particularly in the month of Ramadan, because Gabriel used to meet him every night of Ramadan till it elapsed. Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) used to recite the Qur’an for him. When Gabriel met him, he used to become more generous than the fast wind in doing good.
4- Fasting and reciting Qur’an as the intercessors for every servant:
Fasting and the Qur’an intercede for a man, as in Hadith:
‘Abdallah b. ‘Amr reported Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) as saying, “Fasting and the Qur’an intercede for a man. Fasting says, ‘O my Lord, I have kept him away from his food and his passions by day, so accept my intercession for him.’ The Qur’an says, ‘I have kept him away from sleep by night, so accept my intercession for him.’ Then their intercession is accepted.”
Baihaqi transmitted it in Shu’ab al-iman.
Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was revealed as a guide for humanity to distinguish between right and wrong. But whoever is ill or on a journey, let him fast for an equal number of days after Ramadan. Allah Almighty intends ease for you.
And be keen on the Sunnah of hastening the breaking of the fast and delaying the time of suhoor. There is a blessing in taking a meal at that time of suhoor (time before fajr) and making the intention of fasting Ramadan every night because it is obligatory fasting.
