Ramadan 22, 1431 A.H, Thursday, September 02, 2010
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
Ramadan is a month of Blessings, Mercy and a month of victory for the Muslims over the Kuffar. In this blessed month the battle of Badr, the conquest of Makkah, the famous battle of Qadesiya, the conquest of Andulus (Spain), the battle of Hiteen and Ain Jaloot have taken place and Allah SWT gave the final victory to the Muslims over the Kuffar.
This is a month in which Allah SWT bestowed his book as a mercy for mankind and many hadith reported from our beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW talk about the rewards and importance of prayers in this blessed month.
There are many revelations reported about the night of Qadr, which is from one of the nights of this blessed month, in which the prayer performed is better (more in reward) than the prayer performed in the nights of a thousand months.
In many of the narrations reported from Prophet Muhammad SAW it is said that, there are times in this month in which if a Muslims prays (conforming to Shariat) to Allah SWT, he SWT will answer his prayers.
Today, our Muslim Ummah is facing a lot of hardships by the hands of the Kuffar (infidels). We are being killed, our wealth and honor is being plundered in Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan and many other parts of the world, so we ask our Muslim brothers and sisters to pray, especially in the last 10 nights of this blessed month for our success, for the success of the Mujahideen who fight for the cause of Allah over the Kuffar, and the shameful defeat of the enemies of Islam so that the Muslims are released from the atrocities committed by their hands.
Allah SWT accepts these kinds of prayers as he says himself in his book (Quran):
(وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُواْ لِي وَلْيُؤْمِنُواْ بِي لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ (البقرة . 186
When My servants ask thee concerning Me, I am indeed close (to them): I listen to the prayer of every suppliant when he calleth on Me: Let them also, with a will, listen to My call, and believe in Me: that they may walk in the right way. (Surah Baqarah, verse 189).
It is hoped from the Muslim Ummah that they will pray to Allah SWT in the last 10 blessed nights of this blessed month, (along with their own needs) for the Mujahideen who are fighting for Allah’s cause to become victorious over the enemies of Allah SWT. Ameen.
