The month of Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was sent down,
a guidance for the people, and clear verses of guidance and criterion.

Ramadan Message 2010: Dua

Ramadan Messages and Daily Reminders for 2010
Day 8

Some of you may feel weary and tired during Ramadan, and that is normal because we are fasting, and yet continuing with life's many responsibilities from housework, child-rearing, school and work. But we hope these short but insightful Ramadan reminders will inspire you to persevere through times of difficulties during this Ramadan. InshaAllah.

Ramadan is the month in which the Holy Quran was sent down, as a guide to mankind with clear signs for our guidance and judgement.

Prophet Muhammad (saw) said: "Bear in mind that if all the people combined together to grant you some benefit, they would not be able to do it unless Allah has determined it for you. And if all of them combined together to do you harm, they would not be able to do it unless Allah has determined it for you. The pens have been set aside and writings of the Book of Fate have become dry."

So make duas (supplications) this Ramadan so that you can ensure you are on the right side of the Fate that you desire. InshaAllah.

The Importance of Making Dua and How to Do it - Video

Dua (supplication) is the most powerful weapon of the believer and a means of communicating with his Lord. Shaykh Yasir Qadhi elaborates on the status, importance and etiquette of dua' in Islam. For more information and details please refer to the book published by the speaker of the same title which is the most comprehensive work yet to be written in English on the topic, the author discusses, amongst other matters: the excellence and benefits of du'a; the types of du'a; the pre-conditions that are needed in order for a du'a to be accepted; the recommended etiquette of performing du'a; the timings and situations in which a du'a is more likely to be answered; the various factors that aid or prevent a du'a from being accepted; the relationship of du'a with the Divine Decree (qadr); the wisdom behind a delayed response, and many other relevant topics.

Yasir Qadhi was born in Houston, Texas and completed his primary and secondary education in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. He graduated with a B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Houston, after which he was accepted as a student at the Islamic University of Madinah. After completing a diploma in Arabic, he graduated with a B.A. from the College of Hadith and Islamic Sciences. Thereafter, he completed a M.A. in Islamic Theology from the College of Dawah. His published works include Riya'a: The Hidden Shirk, Du'aa: The Weapon of the Believer, and An Introduction to the Sciences of the Qur'an.

Special Ramadan Series

Dear Reader, Assalaamu’alaikum.

Ramadan Mubarak. We wish you a blessed and productive Ramadan! Make no mistake about it - keeping the fast and increasing our acts of worship during this blessed month is not an easy task. The physical demands of balancing work or school with fasting all day, feeling fatigued and less effective than you normally are, waking up for Suhoor, praying Teraweeh and Tahajjud prayers, dealing with sleep deficits.

But the last thing we would want is to let Ramadan pass us by without doing all that we aim and desire to. Do not allow yourself to feel guilty or regretful when Ramadan passes.

The Ramadan Series will send you emails with practical tips on how to gain and maintain the physical and spiritual energy necessary to embark on increased religious oligations so that you will reap the benefits from this blessed month. This includes special Ramadan duas to say during the month. Do sign-up today!
