|Ramadhan Kareem Month of the Quran|
Rasulullah SAW said
When the month of Ramadhan starts, the gates of the heaven are opened and the gates of Hell are closed and the devils are chained.
Ramadhan Kareem Month of the Quran
Muslims believe that the first verses of the Quran (Surah Al Alaq 96:1-5) were revealed in the Month of Ramadan while Prophet Muhammad was in spiritual retreat in the cave of Hira outside of Makkah. Years later when the fast of Ramadan was made compulsory, the Angel Jibreel used to sit with Muhammad every day during Ramadan so that the latter could recite all that had been revealed so far of the Quran. In his final year, the Prophet recited the entire Quran twice in Ramadan.
Muslims continue reading the entire Quran at least once during Ramadan. In Muslim countries, it is not at all unusual in this month to see many people reading the Quran while riding the bus or metro to and from work. Others find time early in the morning, late at night, or at intervals throughout the day. Ramadhan Kareem Month of the Quran
Many others read or recite the Quran during Tarawih Prayers, which are held only during Ramadan, or in private late night Prayers called Tahajjud.
Muslims who cannot yet read Arabic well, spend some time each day listening to a tape or CD of the Quran being recited. Muslims consider Ramadan to be a good time to get into the habit of reading at least some of the Quran or its translation every day, and if they haven’t read either of them cover to cover, Ramadan is the time to do it.
