Five Ramadhan Gifts to this Ummah

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

Abu Huraira r.anhu. relates that Rasulullah s.a.w. said: “My ummah has been given five special things that were not given to anyone before them. The smell from the mouth of a fasting Muslim is sweeter for Allah ta’ala than the pleasant smell of musk. The fish in the sea seek forgiveness on their behalf until they break their fast. Allah ta’ala prepares and decorates His special jannah every day and says: ‘The time is near when My faithful servants shall put away the load (of the world) and come to you.’ In this month, the rebellious shaytan are chained, so as not to cause those evils which they normally do during months other than Ramadhan. On the last night of Ramadhan, the fasting Muslims are forgiven.” The sahabah r.anhu. thereupon enquired: “O Rasul of Allah, is that night laylatul qadr?” Rasulullah s.a.w. replied: “No, but it is only tht a servant should be given his reward on having completed his duty.”

 

Abu Hurairah r.anhu. berkata Rasulullah s.a.w. telah bersabda, “Umatku telah diberikan dalam Ramadhan lima perkara yang belum pernah diberikan kepada mana-mana umat pun sebelum mereka. 1. Bau busuk mulut orang berpuasa lebih harum disisi Allah ta’ala daripada bau kasturi. 2. Ikan-ikan di laut akan beristighfar untuk mereka sehingga mereka berbuka. 3. Setiap hari Allah ta’ala akan menghiaskan syurgaNya dan berkata “Telah hampir masanya hamba-hambaKu yang soleh akan dilepaskan dari beban-beban dan mereka akan dating kepadamu.” 4. Dirantaikan syaitan-syaitan yang jahat dalm bulan Ramadhan dan mereka tidak akan dapat berbuat sesuatu dalam bulan Ramadhan ini seperti mana yang biasa diperbuat oleh mereka pada bulan lain. 5. Mereka akan diampunkan pada malam terakhir Ramadhan. Rasulullah s.a.w. ditanya, “Adakah ia Lailatuqodar?” Baginda menjawab, “Tidak! Namun seorang pekerja akan diberikan ganjarannya apabila telah menyelesaikan kerjanya.”
