I was talking with my colleague, he shared with me what in Friday sermon he gets from the preacher in his local Masjid / Mosque:
Prophet Muhammad Sallal Lahu Wallahe Waasalam (Peace Be Upon Him) asked a group of companion Radhi Allah Taalah Anhum (May Allah be pleased with them), two brothers in Islam died and went to Jannah who is better amongst them, one died in the path of Allah fighting (Jihad) and the other died an year later generally?
The companion said, Ofcourse the one fighting in the path of Allah!
Prophet Muhammad Sallal Lahu Waalahe Waasalam said, No the one who died generally, because he was able to get one more year in Ramadan, and he was able to pray more than him.
Amazing, Never heard this saying before in life. My colleague doesn’t have the reference of the hadees. But this is the power of Ramadan.
Ramadan being the month of Allah, Ask Allah for forgiveness, we do so many bad deeds small and big, some we know and do intentionally and some we didn’t realise. May Allah forgive us from both of them!
