Narrated Abu Huraira (RA):

The Prophet said:

"… whoever fasts during Ramadan out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah’s rewards, then all his past sins will be forgiven."

[Sahih Al-Bukhari]

The key thing is to fast out of SINCERE FAITH, and to HAVE THE HOPE TO ATTAIN ALLAH'S REWARD when we fast this month of Ramadan, and THEN Allah will forgive us our past sins.

Insha'Allah we need to fast with the above intentions, and not just fast for the sake of fasting..we must remind our selves of this hadeeth during our fasts in Ramadan to keep ourselves focussed on why we are fasting and motivate ourselves to strive harder to attain this forgiveness from Allah.

Allah says : “O you who Believe! Observing al-sawm (the fasting) is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become al-muttaqoon (the pious).”

[Surah Al-Baqarah, 2:183]

The above Ayat explains how fasting has been prescribed upon us Muslims so we may become PIOUS - this is our aim in Ramadan and we must strive hard to attain this during this month. Insha'Allah we need to work hard on ourselves to become better believing Muslims by keeping ourselves busy in the remembrance of Allah, by fulfilling our obligations followed up by many good voluntary deeds and staying away from all the haraam actions and things that are displeasing to Allah.

May Allah increase us in goodness during this month,and be of those who come out of Ramadan as winners,having strengthened in our faith, become better righteous Muslims, given up bad habits we may have adapted during the year and have the ultimate reward of having our past sins forgiven and to be written as from the people of Jannah..may we not be amongst those who come out of Ramadan as losers only having felt thirst and hunger, and not gained any benefit from this blessed month... AaMEEN!

The Prophet Muhammad (

) said:

"Whoever does not give up false speech and evil actions (i.e. during Ramadan), Allah is not in need of him to leave his food and drink (i.e. Allah will not accept his fasting.)" [Bukhari]

Ramadaan Mabrook!
