Ramadan: Quran & Spending (Hadith No. 1621)
Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu):
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was the most generous amongst the people, and he used to be more so in the month of Ramadan when Gabriel (`alayhissalaam) visited him, and Gabriel (`alayhissalaam) used to meet him on every night of Ramadan till the end of the month. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) used to recite the Holy Qur’an to Gabriel, and when Gabriel (`alayhissalaam) met him, he used to be more generous than a fast wind (which causes rain and welfare).
- The sunnah is to go through the whole Quran in Ramadan. It’s the best time of the year. You can do it!
Join online classes if there’s no other means.
- Spend generously in the cause of Allah. Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was more generous than ‘fast wind’ – meaning he would spend a lot and he would spend of whatever he had as soon as he got it.. no delays. And his spending was such that it would benefit others – the poor and the needy.
