The impact of Ramadan on Muslim families

The month of Ramadan is a blessing for the believer. In this month, Allah increases the reward of good deeds, increases the dignity of the believer, frees the sinners from Hell and accepts the prayers of the believer. As a result, the believer prays for the month of Ramadan and is happy to receive it. When the month of Rajab began, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to pray, ‘O Allaah, bless us in the month of Rajab and Shabaan and bring us to Ramadaan.’ (Al-Muzammul Awsat, Hadith: 3939)

The atmosphere of Ramadan in the Muslim family: In order to achieve the greatness of Ramadan, it is necessary to create a holy atmosphere in the family environment as well as in personal worship. In Ramadan, the Prophet (peace be upon him) used to inspire his family to perform Tahajjud. Ayesha (RA) said, “When the last decade of Ramadan came, the Prophet (SAW) used to fasten his waist, stay awake at night and wake up his family.” (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 2024)

Do’s and don’ts of family in Ramadan

Here are some things a Muslim family should and should not do during Ramadan:

1. Highlighting the greatness of Ramadan: When Ramadan comes, it is necessary to highlight the greatness of Ramadan in front of the whole family, so that everyone, big or small, is interested in the welfare of Ramadan. Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) ascended the pulpit. He climbed the first stairs and said, Amin. He also went up the second step and said, Amin. He also climbed the third step and said, Amin. The Companions said, O Messenger of Allah! We heard you say Amen three times. He said, “As soon as I first climbed the stairs, Gabriel came and said, ‘Woe to the man who got the month of Ramadan and his sins were not forgiven even though it was over.’ I said, Amen …. ‘(Adabul Mufrad, Hadith: 648)

2. Discussing the rules and regulations: Even if the rules and regulations of Ramadan are known in advance, it is better to discuss them at the beginning of Ramadan, so that everyone is alert and aware and if any rules are forgotten, they come to mind. Family ignorance about religion is reprehensible. The Holy Qur’an says, “So that you may warn a people whose forefathers were not warned, so they are heedless.” (Surah Ya-seen, verse 8)

3. Forgiveness of sin: Every member of the family will abstain from sin and will abstain from others. Because the precondition for gaining welfare and reward in Ramadan is to avoid sins. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, ‘There is no need for Allaah to give up eating and drinking to a person who has not lied and has not acted accordingly.’ (Saheeh Bukhari, Hadith: 1903)

4. Don’t waste too much time on food and drink: In Ramadan, food is usually eaten during Iftar and Sahri. Time is very important for prayer, supplication and worship. At these two times Allah accepts prayers. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, ‘The prayers of three people are not returned ক the righteous ruler, the fasting person when he breaks the fast, and the prayers of the oppressed person.’ (Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 1852)

Elsewhere, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, ‘Our Lord descended to the heavens of the earth with the last third of the night remaining, and said,’ Whoever calls me, I will answer his call, whoever asks me, I will give him, I will do it. ‘(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 1145)

5. Competition for good deeds: In Ramadan, Allah increases the reward for good deeds. So there must be competition for good work in the family. Especially to increase the recitation of the Qur’an. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “Compete for the good.” (Surat al-Baqara, 147)

. Taking care of Tahajjud: In Ramadan, one should try to do Tahajjud as a family, so that everyone can perform Tahajjud. Because Ayesha (RA) said, ‘When the last decade of Ramadan came, the Prophet (SAW) would tie his waist tightly, stay up at night and wake up his family.’ (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 2024)

. Cooperation in family work: In Ramadan, women cannot concentrate on worship due to the pressure of family work. So everyone, young and old, should help with family chores. Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to fix shoes, sew clothes and work as you do at home. ‘(Musnad Ahmad, Hadith: 25360)

. Getting children accustomed to fasting: It is not obligatory for children to fast until they reach adulthood, but the Companions used to get children accustomed to fasting from childhood. Rubaiya bint Mu’abbij (may Allah be pleased with her) said, “Later we used to fast on that day (Ashura) and our children used to fast.” We would make fur toys for them. If one of them cried for food, I would forget him with that toy. And in this way it would have been time for Iftar. ‘(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 1980)

9. Standing by the side of helpless relatives: It is encouraged to donate in Ramadan and stand by the side of helpless people. Ulamaye Keram has urged to inquire about one’s relatives, especially if they are helpless. Because the Prophet (peace be upon him) used to give more and more in Ramadan. Abdullah ibn Abbas (ra) said, ‘The Messenger of Allah (saw) is the most generous of people. When Gabriel met him in Ramadan, his generosity would have increased. ‘(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 6)

10. Being careful in prayers: Due to laziness and sleep in Ramadan, many people miss Fajr prayers. In this case, others should warn him. Irshad has said, “Warn your close relatives.”

May Allah create a religious environment in every Muslim family. Amen.
