HOW TO ATTAIN ALLAH’S MERCY IN RAMADAN? 


What Qur’an Says about Ramadan?

“O believers! fasting has been made compulsory for you as it was compulsory for those before you so that you may become pious” (2:183)

“The month of Ramadan in which was sent down the Qur’an - the guidance for mankind, the direction and the clear criteria (to judge between right and wrong); so whoever among you witnesses this month, must fast for the (whole) month ……..”

Surah Al-Baqra (2:185)


Reminder to Ourselves
We should be thankful to Allah SWT abundantly for giving us the opportunity to be able to benefit from such a blessed month.  But as we all know life is very uncertain & unfortunately many will have passed away before the coming of this blessed month & so it may well be our very last Ramadan as we may not be alive to see the next.  Therefore we should treat this Ramadan as our last and do our utmost to ensure that we maximize each precious second in this blessed month to ensure that we gain maximum benefit from it.
