My ibadah focusses during Ramadan


Allah azza wa jall says,I created not the Jinns and mankind except to worship me(Quran: 51/56)... so Insha Allah these are going to be my Ibadah (worship) focusses during Ramadhan:


1. fasting (saym)

O you who believe, I made fasting fardh on you as I made it fardh on those before you that perhaps you may have taqwa (god consciousness)

Sa'ad Ibn Sahl relates that the Holy Prophet, sallalahu alayhi wa sallam, said:
"There is a gate of Paradise called Rayyan through which only those will enter on the Day of Judgment who are regular in observing the fast and no one else. A call will go forth: Where are those who observed the fast regularly? And they will step forth and no one beside them will enter through that gate. After they shall have entered, the gate will be closed and no one else will enter thereby" (Bukhari and Muslim).

2. qiyaam ul layl (taraweeh)

3. quran (recitation)

Will they then not contemplate the Qur’an? Or are there locks upon (their) hearts?” (Surat Muhammad (47:24)

4. sadaqah

"He who feeds a fasting person will gain the same reward as he will, without decreasing from the fasting person's rewards." [Ahmad]

5. dhikr

Verily, in the remembrance of Allah, do hearts find rest [13:28]
and remember your Lord when you forget... (18:24)

The Prophet (pbuh) said, “Shall I not inform you of the best of your actions, the most pure in the sight of your Master, the one which raises your ranks highest, that which is better for you then giving gold and silver in charity, and better for you then meeting your enemies, so that you strike their necks and they strike yours?” The companions urged, “Of course, O Messenger of Allah! (inform us)” He replied, “It’s the remembrance of Allah.” (Sahih: Abu Dawud)

6. du'a



Our Lord, give us good in this world, and good in the hereafter, and save us from the torment of fire. (AL BAQARAH: 201)
