15 Hadiths About Ramadan

Protection from Hellfire

10. Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said,

Anyone who fasts for one day for Allah’s sake, Allah will keep his face away from the Hellfire for (a distance covered by a journey of) seventy years. (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

11. `Uthman ibn Abi Al-`Aas reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Fasting serves as a shield from Hellfire.” (An-Nasa’i and authenticated by Al-Albani)

12. Abdullah ibn `Amr reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said,

Fasting and the Qur’an will intercede on behalf of Allah’s servant on the Day of Judgment:

Fasting will say, “O my Lord! I prevented him from food and desires during the day, so accept my intercession for him.”

And the Qur’an will say, “O my Lord! I prevented him from sleeping by night, so accept my intercession for him.”

The intercession of both will thus be accepted. (Ahmad and authenticated by Al-Albani)

Actions Speak Louder

13. Ibn `Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated:

“The Prophet was the most generous of all people, and he used to become more generous in Ramadan when Gabriel met him. Gabriel used to meet him every night during Ramadan to revise the Qur’an with him. So, Allah’s Messenger then used to be more generous than the fast wind.” (Al-Bukhari)

14. `A’ishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported:

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) used to strive more in worship during Ramadan than he strove in any other time of the year; and he would devote himself more (in the worship of Allah) in the last ten nights of Ramadan than he did in earlier part of the month. (Muslim).

15. Abu Hurayrah reported:

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) used to observe i`tikaf (spiritual retreat in a mosque) every Ramadan for ten days; in the year in which he passed away, he observed i`tikaf  for twenty days. (Al-Bukhari).
