good deeds

Donations box at Benta Mosque.

“…whoever draws nearer (to Allah) by performing any of the (optional) good deeds in (this month) shall receive the same reward as performing an obligatory deed at any other time, and whoever discharges an obligatory deed in (this month) shall receive the reward of performing seventy obligations at any other time... ” [Narrated by Ibn Khuzaymah]

Allah promises us to give blessings when we do good deeds at any time of the year. But during ramadhan He will give extra blessings (bonus). Most of us will do sunat prayer, reciting quran, zikr, donation and many more good deeds.

ramadhan al-mubarak

Sultan Mahmud Mosque

Salam Ramadhan al-mubarak to all muslim readers who celebrate fasting days today.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. It is the Islamic month of fasting, in which participating Muslims refrain from eating, drinking and sexual activities from dawn until sunset. Fasting is intended to teach Muslims about patience, humility and spirituality and is a time for Muslims to fast for the sake of Allah and to offer more prayer than usual. (more in wikipedia)

The blessings of Ramadan are not limited to fasting alone, because the performance of all sorts of worship and good deeds during this month is also a source of great Divine favor.

after rain

I hear leaves drinking rain;
I hear rich leaves on top
Giving the poor beneath
Drop after drop;
'Tis a sweet noise to hear
These green leaves drinking near....

(The Rain by William Henry Davies)
