Ramadhan Kareem!!!

assalamu alaikum!!!

Allahu Akbar!! The blessed month of Ramadhan has come upon us!! May Allah allow us to live through it and live with it once more! ameen! Dont forget to increase in duaa especially for the suffering Muslims and the believers in general, lets make sure we dont miss the blessings of suhoor which it is preferable and best to eat with dates and water!! Also, lets not forget hastening the iftaar which is sunnah and the most blessed time is right before fajr salah.

We should read as much quran as we can, Ramadhan is the month of the Quran, as Allah says and try to at least finish it once. Be more generous and kind and increase in your good deeds, after all the acts of worship done in Ramadhan are doubled, Allah has also promised a special reward for those who fast. Lets not forget the duaa for breaking the fast which is a sunnah as well:

Allahuma laka sumtu wa 'ala rizquka aftartu


O Allah, it is for you that I have offered my fasting and it is with provision from you that I am breaking the fast.

Also the duaa for the one who provides you with Iftaar(host):

Allahuma ad'im man ad'amni wasqee man saqaanee


O Allah feed the one who fed me and quench the thirst of the one who quenched my thirst
