What is Ramadan?

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and a time when Muslims across the world will fast during the hours of daylight.

Ramadan is the fourth of the five pillars of Islam.

The Qur'an was first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad during this month. The actual night that the Qur'an was revealed is a night known as Lailut ul-Qadr ('The Night of Power').

It was narrated that Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه said: "The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: 'There has come to you Ramadan, a blessed month, which Allah, the Mighty and Sublime, has enjoined you to fast. In it the gates of heavens are opened and the gates of Hell are closed, and every devil is chained up. In it Allah has a night which is better than a thousand months; whoever is deprived of its goodness is indeed deprived."' [Sunan an-Nasa'i 2106]
 

Taraweeh

Taraweeh prayer arrangements are made for the month of Ramadan. Sisters are welcome to attend the prayer.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "He who observes optional prayer (Taraweeh prayers) throughout Ramadan, out of sincerity of Faith and in the hope of earning reward will have his past sins pardoned." [Al- Bukhari and Muslim]
