Ramadhan is a wellspring of mercy and blessings.  It is a month of profuse worship and establishing Salaat and fasting and to busy oneself in Dhikr and Durud and Salaam.


A true believer spends his/her days and nights is giving charity, obeying the orders of Allah Most High and staying away from what is prohibited.  In this month all Muslims become the very embodiments of virtue and goodness.


Indeed it is a blessing of Ramadhan that it turns even sinners into habituated virtuous folk.  It enrobes them with the garment of piety.


Ramadhan is the month in which all arrangements are made to forgive the sins of the Ummah.  Along with this the value of good deeds is also increased and their reward is increased.  In this month such an auspicious night is granted to the worshippers, which is superior to 1000 months, which is called “Shab Qadr” (The night of power)


Shab Qadr is a night of greatness, excellence and blessings.  This is the auspicious night when the Holy Quran was revealed.  In this night, angels descend.  In this night those who are busy in worship and remembrance of Almighty Allah are granted the reward of worshiping for 1000 months.  Almighty Allah says in the Holy Quran:


Surely, We sent down this (Holy Qur’an) during the Night of Destiny.


And what have you made out what the Night of Destiny is?


The Night of Destiny is better than a thousand months (in merit, blessings, reward and recompense).


The angels and the Spirit of Peace (Gabriel) descend by their Lord’s command during this (night) with decrees concerning all matters (of blessings and bounties).


This (night) is (absolute) peace and security till daybreak.  Surah Qadr (97:1-5)
