May Allah Almighty, by His grace and grace, once again bless us with the blessed month of Ramadan. In the month of Ramadan, where many other blessings descend, Allah Almighty also increases the feeling of compassion and love for each other in the hearts of the believers. In the hadith, Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah, has called it the “city of sympathy”.
Empathy means killing oneself and taking care of the poor and needy. So that their sehri and iftar can be a little better and the blessings bestowed by nature on the rich class can also be used by the poor.
In Ruhul Bayan, Hazrat Abdullah bin Umar, quoting the Holy Prophet, has said that there are always five chosen and forty Abdals in my ummah. If one of them dies, the other immediately takes his place.
The Companions asked, “What are their special deeds?” He said, “Whoever wrongs them, they pardon him. Those who do evil, they do good, and Allah provides for them.” Treats people with empathy and grief. In another hadith, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said that whoever feeds the hungry or clothes the naked or gives the traveler a place to spend the night, Allaah will protect him from the hardships of the Hour.
In another hadith, the Holy Prophet (sws) has said that on the Day of Judgment, Allah Almighty will say: O son of Adam, I was sick and you did not ask me about my illness. I needed food, you didn’t feed me, I needed water, you didn’t give me water.Then how could I do this? Allah will say, “My servant, if you worshiped such and such a patient, it would be as if you worshiped me (because the creature is mine).” If he fed such and such a hungry person, he would have fed me. If he had given water to such and such a thirsty person, he would have given me water. If given, Allah Almighty will admit him through the special door of Paradise and only a person who acts like him can enter through this door.
In Sahih Ibn Habban, he says that there are some upper chambers in Paradise, the outer part of which is visible from the inside and the inner part from the outside. Allah Almighty will give it to those who feed the needy and greet the people and at night when people are asleep they stand before Allah (perform Tahajjud). According to another narration, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever feeds his Muslim brother and gives him plenty of water to drink, Allaah will remove seven trenches from Hell and there will be a distance of five hundred years between them.” ۔
It is in Tirmidhi that the Holy Prophet (sws) said: There are three deeds which can be found in a person and Allah Almighty has special mercy on him and will admit him to Paradise.
To be gentle with the weak, to respect one’s parents, to be kind to one’s slave and servant, and three things are found in a person. On the Day of Resurrection, Allah Almighty will grant him the shade of the Great Throne.
Such as performing ablutions in painful situations and places, going to the mosque on dark nights, feeding the hungry, the reward of Taraweeh can be estimated from them.
Hazrat Abu Jahm says that in the battle of Yarmouk, I went in search of my cousin who was involved in the battle so that I could see his condition and I took a glass of water with me that he might be thirsty. Give them water
Coincidentally, he met me in a place where his body was covered with wounds and he was in his last breath, so I asked him to offer me water, and he said that I offered water.My cousin gestured to me to leave me and give me some water to the Mujahid Sahabi.”
Hazrat Abu Jahm says: When I reached this Sahabi, another Mujahid Sahabi who was lying with him said: Water. This other Sahabi gestured to me to leave me and give water to this Mujahid Sahabi. He says that when I reached him, his soul had flown away. When he returned, the other two gentlemen had also reached Hauz Kausar at the last moment, making sacrifices.
Saying Allahu Akbar is an incident, but if we go to the bottom of this incident, where the effect of Muhammad’s training can be seen, the Companions are seen teaching self-sacrifice and compassion at the last moment.
In Ramadan, the reward for a good deed is up to seven hundred times. If a person spends one rupee in this month, Allah Almighty rewards him for spending seven hundred rupees.
Then how far is it from the mercy and grace of Allah Almighty that Allah Almighty likes the payment of a servant that at the time of Iftaar-e-Sahar the poor person should take a bite in his mouth or take a sip of sherbet, then Allah Almighty decides for forgiveness. If possible, this can be done in cash. Otherwise, the best way is to give rations according to one’s ability and to take care of the poor and the needy as much as possible, then Allah Almighty will reward them in the Hereafter.
There the world will also increase in sustenance. Then this reward is different. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: Whoever breaks the fast, whether it is by mixing water in dates or milk with raw lassi.
