Day 23 #Ramadhan - Step 26 -Sufi Secrets & Gems by ~Sajad Ali~
5 Gifts this Ummah given in Ramadhan that No other prophet has been given.
The Prophet ﷺ said: “My Ummah has been given in Ramadhan five things that no prophet before me was given. The first is that on the first night of the month of Ramadan Allah gazes upon them and if Allah gazes upon someone, He will never punish them. The second is the smell emanating from their mouths in the latter part of the day is sweeter in Allah’s sight than the scent of musk. The third is that the angels seek forgiveness for them every day and night. The fourth is that Allah says to Paradise: ‘Prepare yourself and beautify yourself for My slaves for they will soon find rest in My Abode in the place of My generosity after the hardship of this life. The fifth is that they will all be forgiven on the last night.”
Someone asked: “Is that Laylat al-Qadr? He replied: “No, look at workers: when they finish their work they are given their wages in full. This a is reference to the last night of Ramadhan is called 'Layla tul Ja'iza (night of prize giving).'
The Prophet ﷺ said: “Allah made fasting Ramadhan compulsory and made the night prayer recommended. Whoever fasts in it and prays in the night in a state of belief; seeking Allah’s reward, will be free of sins like the day on which his mother gave birth to him.”
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ informed us that in this month gates of the heavens are opened, meaning that it is easy for our actions, our prayers and our repentance to find acceptance with Allah. It has also been narrated that when Ramadhan enters, Allah orders the angels who carry His throne to stop praising Him and to seek forgiveness for the Ummah of Muhammad.
