What to say if you encounter the Night of al-Qadr
اللَّهمَّ إنَّك عفُوٌّ تُحبُّ العفوَ فاعْفُ عنِّي
Transliteration: Allahumma innaka afuwwun tuhibbu al-afwa fa'fu anni
Translation: Oh Allah you are forgiving, and you love forgiveness, so forgive me

Importance of Intention and Fasting

It was narrated on the authority of Hafsah bint ‘Umar (ra) that the Messenger of Allaah (saw) said: “Whoever does not resolve on fasting before dawn, his fasting is invalid.” [Abu Daawood and At-Tirmithi]

In Ramadan, fasting becomes a continual routine and the importance of renewing our intention often slips our mind. We should continually renew our intention and fast only for the Sake of Allah and not to loose weight. Allah says. "Fasting is for Me and I will reward it." 

Sufyaan ibn 'Uyaina mentioned that on the Day of Judgement that Allah holds to account his servants and settles the wrong a person did by giving away his good deeds and the only deed that will NOT be given away- is the reward of fasting.

Those who fast, will enter the door of Rayyan. Sahl(ra) narrated that the prophet said. "There is a gate in paradise called Rayyan through which those who fast will enter on the Day of Judgement and no one besides them will enter." However the obligatory fast, is- well-obligatory... so this refers to the fasts that are done voluntarily. The 13,14,15 of every month, Monday and Thursday of every week, and day of Ashoorat and Arafat are voluntary.

Fast with full faith and a sincere intention.
May Allah reward us and accept our actions and intentions. Ameen.

What really is Ramadan?

Ramadan is not only to fast from food, it is a training camp. A boot camp for your heart to control its desires from what is halal so that you may be able to avoid the haram in the coming 11 months.
It is a catapult- the more force you put into it- the better you will fly and sail across the rest of the 11 months. 
Ramadan is to refrain from all types of sinful acts. It's not fill your stomach as much as you can and see if you last the day- its to eat little and remember what you have. 
It's a time for you to get back to the basics and be thankful for the blessings you forgot and stop focusing on others apparent blessings. For it is this misdirected focus that is the source of jealously and the lack of contentment in ones' life.
It's a time to reconnect with your lord and become the best Muslim you can be. 
Ramadan is a time to take control of your heart and show it who's boss.

It comes but once a year... don't waste it.

Assalam u alaikum everyone and Ramadan Kareem! :)

There are some apps that are essential to have this Ramadan. Athan Pro is hands down one of the best Athan apps I have downloaded. So many Athan types to choose from, shortcut to Quran, mosques nearby- it's brilliant!

There's this other app- and honestly .. It is gold. It is called Ramadan Legacy. I'm pretty sure that most of you have created Ramadan goals, some of mine were memorizing a new Hadith and dua everyday .. AND THIS APP HAS IT! You can set your goals and follow up on them! You can record and write your reflections and thoughts of the day. I have never seen an app like this and I'm truly impressed by it. Oh! Also- there is an ilm library. Like wat?! Things cannot possibly get better.. But they actually do!

Everyone should download this and spread the word! Allah truly bless the team that created this. May Allah reward them greatly. Ameen.

Keep me in your Duas! #Ramadan2k15 #RamadanLegacy
