Preparation for Ramadhan

The Regard for Ramadhan in the Sight of Allah Ta’ala

Great importance is displayed from the side of Allah for the blessed month of Ramadhan. Nabi Kareem SAW has also elucidated its worth in various ways to the ummah.

Its importance in the sight of Allah is understood from the following Hadith of Nabi SAW

“Jannah is beautified and adorned from one Ramadhan to the next in anticipation of the blessed month of Ramadhan.”

I.e. from the completion of one Ramadhan up to the commencement of the next Ramadhan, for a full eleven months, Jannah is beautified for the coming Ramadhan. Read More

One should cover open utensils at night because it is mentioned in Muslim Sharief that “there is one night in the year wherein plague / disease descends. If this happens to pass over any open utensil, then a portion of that plague / disease will definitely fall into it.

(Muslim‐Vol.2, pg..171)

The Stuck Manuscript

Upon receiving her manuscript with a rejection letter back from a major publishing company, the author sent a letter to the editor.

"Sir," she began, "you sent back a story of mine. I know that you did not read the story, for as a test I pasted together pages 18,19,20 and 21. My story came back with these pages still stuck together. I know you are a fraud and turned down the manuscript without reading them."

The editor replied: "Madam, at breakfast when I open an egg, I don't have to eat the whole egg to discover it is bad."
