5 Special Merits of Ramadan

Sayyiduna Abu Sa'eed Khudri (Radi Allahu Anhu) has narrated that the Beloved Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) has said: “On the first night of Ramadan, the portals of the skies and Paradise are opened which remain open until the last night (of the month). So if anyone:

1. Offers Salah (Prayer) in any night of this month, Allah will reward him with 1,500 virtues for every Sajdah (Prostration) and

2. Make a palace of Red Rubies for him that will have 60,000 gates. The gates will have hinges of gold that will be embroidered with red rubies.

3. Thus, the one who fasts on the first day of Ramadan will be forgiven for his sins until the last day of the month and

4. 70,000 angels will ask for his forgiveness from morning till evening.

5. Each time he prostrates during the day or at night, he will be granted a tree in Heaven and each tree is so huge that a horse rider can ride under its shadow for 500 years!”

Sixty Thousand Sinners Forgiven Every Night

Sayyiduna Abdullah Ibn Masud (Radi Allahu Anhu) has narrated that the Beloved and Blessed Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) has stated,

"At every night of Ramadan, an announcement is made in the skies till dawn, ‘O seeker of goodness! Complete (i.e. keep worshipping Allah) and rejoice, and O evil one! Give up your evil and take some lesson. Is there any seeker of forgiveness, his desire will be fulfilled? Is there anyone repenting, his repentance will be accepted? Is there anyone making Dua, his Dua will be accepted? Is there anyone who seeks anything, he will be bestowed what he wishes for?’ Each evening of Ramadan at the time of sunset, Allah Almighty frees sixty thousand sinners from Hell, and on the day of Eid, He forgives as many people as the total number of those who were freed throughout the month."
