يَاأَي هَُّا الهذِينَ ءَامَنُوا كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ ال صيَامُ كَمَا كُتِبَ عَلَى الهذِينَ مِنْ قَ بْلِكُمْ لَعَلهكُمْ تَ ته قُو ن

( البقرة: 183 )

Meaning in English:

Oh you who believe, fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you that you may achieve taqwa

[Surah Al Baqarah (2):183]

Definition of Fasting (Siyam)

Siyam is a way of worshiping Allah by intentionally abstaining from food, drink, sexual intercourse and other things that break ones fast; from dawn to sundown.

Merits of fasting

Abu-Hurayrah reported that the Messenger of Allah (SWT) said:

كل عمل ابن آدم يضاعف الحسنة عشر أمثالها إلى سبعمائة ضعف قال الله عز وجل إلا الصوم فإنه لي وأنا

أجزي به يدع شهوته وطعامه من أجلي للصائم فرحتان فرحة عند فطره وفرحة عند لقاء ربه ولخلوف فيه

أطيب عند الله من ريح المسك

(رواه البخاري ومسلم )

Siyam Meaning in English:

“Every good deed of the son of Adam is multiplied in reward 10 to 700 times (depending on one’s intention and sincerity), Allah (SWT) proclaims:

‘Except for fasting, for it is for me and i will grant the reward for it. He leaves his passions and his food for my Sake.’ the fasting person has two moments of joy; one when he breaks his fast and the other when he meets his Lord. And the smell that comes from the mouth of the fasting person is more pleasant to Allah than the smell of musk.” (collected by bukhari & muslim)

Here is the list of 30 days dua for Ramadan month. List in Arabic with meaning in English.

May Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) accept all our good deeds and help us in the cause, forgive our mistakes and make us amongst the Muntaqeen & By His Mercy make us all Inhabitants of Jannah. Ameen ya rabbal’alameen.

Jazakkallahu khairan!
