Welcome to you O Month of Ramadan!

AlhamduliLlah,All Praises be to Allah.
As-Salamu 'alaikum wa rahmatuLlahi wa barakatuH
we're sorry it might be late,but what the heck..HAPPY FASTING TO YOU ALL! :D
Finally,the month of ramadan has finally arrive and we are still alive to celebrate it.

Why the name 'Ramadan'?The Holy Prophet (divine peace and blessings be upon him) said: "Surely, the month of Ramadan has been named so because it scorches away the sins."

All praises be to You the Lord of universe!

How's your month of ramadan? i hope you guys are doing good with your ibadah.inshaAllah.
Most of the Devil has been tied up and now it's us one on one with our nafs.

InshaAllah we can win this struggle.Amiin.

Every ibadah that we do is mostly for us,except for fasting,it's for Allah.

as stated in hadith qudsi:

Allah said, "Every action of the son of Adam belongs to him except the fast. It is Mine, and I repay him for it. Fasting is a protection. When one of you has a day of fasting, he should then speak neither obscenely nor too loudly; and if someone seeks to curse him or fight with him, let him say, 'I am fasting.' By Him in whose hand is the soul of Muhammad, the smell of the mouth of the one who fasts is more delectable to Allah than the scent of musk. The one who fasts has two joys in which to delight: when he breaks his fast, he rejoices; and when he meets his Lord, he rejoices in his fast."

Also,our teacher told us to call it "the month of ramadan" not just say it as "ramadan..ramadan..".Like,"how have you been doing during this month of ramadan?" not "how have you been doing during ramadan?" since it's important to say it with the month.

and there's three types of fasting:

1st type:They only abstain themselves from eating,drinking and sexual desires.

2nd type:Same as the one above except now they abstain their eyes,hands,legs and other part of the body from sinful act.

while the 3rd type:Like all of them above except now that they are keeping their hearts clean,as in every second thinking about Allah and praising Him.If they think about anything else,it's a sin for them.These are the types for Anbiya [as] and Awliya [qs].

But for us,inshaAllah at least we can try our best to be in the 2nd type.Amiin.
The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny) has said: It (Ramadan) is the month, whose beginning is mercy, its middle, forgiveness and its end, emancipation from the fire (of hell).

So for the first 10 days let us try to selawat as many times as we can and berdhikir Yar-Rahman and Yar-Rahim for 100 times every time after we solat sunnah.

And Also The prophet [s] always du'a during this month : Allahumma-rhamna Ya Arhamar-Rahimiin.

And for the second 10 days try to istirghfar for 300 times a day.

And for the last 10 days,O what a blessed nights! Let's do more ibadah during all of this night since one of the night is the most greatest night of all! which is Laylatul-Qadar.Some says that the night falls on odd numbers,but who cares! Let's just celeberate!

Actually there's this du'a that our ustaz read it to us but some how i didn't noted it down.

But here's some sites that have a du'a that you can read:

until now,May you guys enjoy your fasting!Also,forgive us if we've make any mistakes to any of you up to now.May Allah Bless you.

wassalam wa rahmatuLlah wa barakatuHu alaik
