This is a BEAUTIFUL Hadith about Ramadhan that everyone should read In Sha Allah. It's really over-powering MashaAllah, especially the part that in Italics. Love it, MashaAllah!
Ibne Abbas (radhiyallahu anhu) says that he heard our Holy Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) say: "Jannah (paradise) is made fragrant with the sweetest perfumes in Ramadhaan. From the very beginning of the year till the end, it is brightly decorated for the coming of this blessed month.
And when the first night of Ramadhaan appears, a wind blows from beneath the Arsh (Throne). It is called Mutheera and causes the leaves of the trees of Jannah to rustle and door handles to vibrate, thus giving forth such a melodious sound as had never been heard before. The dark-eyed damsels of jannah then step forth till they appear in the centre of the balconies of jannah, exclaiming, “Is there anyone praying to Allah for us that Allah may join us in marriage with him?” Then these damsels call out: “O Ridhwaan, Keeper of jannah! What night is this?” He replies: “Labbayk, it is indeed the first night of Ramadhaan, when the doors of Jannah are opened to those who observe the fast from among the ummah of Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).”
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) further said: Allah says, “O Ridhwaan, open the doors of Jannah and O Maalik (Keeper of Jahannam), close the doors of Jahannam for those who fast from among the ummah of Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). O Jibra’il, proceed down to the Earth and bind all the rebellious shayateen (devils), put them in chains, cast them in the oceans, so that they make no mischief, to spoil the fast of the ummah of My beloved Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam)”.
Allah commands a caller from the heavens to call out three times on every one of the nights of Ramadhaan: “Is there anyone begging of Me that I may grant him his desire? Is there anyone repenting to me that I may turn in mercy to him? Is there anyone begging my forgiveness that I may forgive him? Who is there who shall give a loan to the One whose wealth does not diminish, and the One Who duly pays back without any deductions.”
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said further: Every day at the time of iftaar, Allah sets free one thousand souls from the fire of Jahannam who had previously been found deserving Jahannam. On the last night, He sets free as many more as had been set free throughout the month. On the night of Laylatul Qadr, Allah commands Jibra’il to descend to the earth with a large group of angels. They descend carrying a green flag, which is then planted on top of the Kaa’bah. Jibra’il alayhis salaam himself has one hundred wings, two of which are spread out on this night only. He spreads out these two wings so that their width extends from east to west. Jibra’il (alayhis salaam) then sends out the angels in all directions to offer salutation to anybody they find standing in prayer or sitting, performing salaat or celebrating the praises of Allah. They shake hands with them and say Aameen to all their du’as (prayers) until dawn. When dawn comes, Jibra’il (alayhis salaam) calls out: “Depart O Angels of Allah, depart.”
The Angels then inquire: “O, Jibra’il, what did Allah do regarding the needs that the faithful ones from among the ummah of Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) put before Him?” Jibra’il (alayhis salaam) replies: “Allah looked at them with Mercy and pardoned them all, except four kinds of people.”Thereupon, we the Sahaabah inquired: “Who are they, O Rasulullah?” Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) replied: “They are the ones who are addicted to wine, those disobedient to their parents, those who cut themselves off from their near relatives, and those who harbour ill-will against their fellow beings and break off relations with them.”
And then the night of Eidul Fitr, the night that is called Laylatul Jaa’izah, (the night of prize giving), comes along. On the morning of Eid, Allah sends down the angels to all the lands of the Earth, where they take their positions on all the streets and lanes, calling out with a voice that is heard by all except men and jinn: “O ummah of Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), come forth from your houses towards the Lord, Who is Noble and Gracious, Who grants abundantly and pardons the major sins.”
When they proceed for their Eid salaat, Allah says to the angels: “What indeed is the reward of that employee who has rendered full service?” The angels reply: “O our Lord and Master, it is only right that he shall receive his reward in full for his services.”
Allah then says: “I call you to witness, O My angels, that for their having fasted for Me during the month of Ramadhaan, and for their having stood before Me in prayer by night, I have granted to them as a reward of My pleasure and have granted them forgiveness. O My servants, ask now of Me, for I swear by My Honour and Greatness, that whatsoever you shall beg of Me this day in this assembly of yours for the needs of your Hereafter, I shall grant you; and whatever you shall ask for your worldly needs, I shall grant what is to your advantage. By My Honour do I swear, as long as you shall obey My commands, I shall cover up your faults. By My Honour and My Greatness do I swear, that I shall never disgrace you in front of the transgressors and disbelievers. Return now from here; you are forgiven. You have indeed pleased Me, and I am pleased with you.”
The Angels, on seeing this great reward bestowed upon the ummah of Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) on the day of Eid, become greatly pleased and happy.
This really is a gift of a Hadeeth for all of us. May Allah accept all of us!
