Ramadan, Roza rakhne ki dua, roza kholne ki dua

Ramadan (رمضان) is the holy month of Islam, full of blessings and forgiveness. Every Muslim wishes to preserve the maximum acceptance of this month. We thank Allah almighty, He blessed this glorious month once again so we can seek forgiveness of our sins. Ramadan is a very spiritual month for Muslims as compared to other months.

Roza rakhne ki dua Intention (Niyat) to Fasting

Roza rakhne ki dua also called Niyat is the name of the heart’s intention (نیت), so if someone gets up at dawn to fast and fast after eating and drinking, this is his intention. Many scholars believe that it is Mustahib (مستحب) to say with the tongue. Well, three words are more common for Fasting intention. 

Dua is not just about asking for material things, but also about seeking guidance and forgiveness from Allah. It is a way to connect with our Creator on a deeper level and to express our gratitude for the blessings in our lives. Muslims are encouraged to make dua at all times, but especially during Ramadan when the gates of heaven are open and the reward for good deeds is multiplied.

Importance of Ramadan

Ramadan Kareem is the only month mentioned in the Holy Quran, and it is one of the four months in which war is haram (however, it is allowed in some cases). Other heavenly books Bible, Torah, Various Scriptures, and Psalms, are also revealed in Ramadan.

Allah says in Surah Al Baqra Ayat : 183

یٰٓاَیُّھَاالَّذِیْنَ اٰمَنُوْا کُتِبَ عَلَیْکُمُ الصِّیَامُ کَمَا کُتِبَ عَلَی الَّذِیْنَ مِنْ قَبْلِکُمْ لَعَلَّکُمْ تَتَّقُوْنَ

O believers! Fasting is prescribed for you—as it was for those before you1—so perhaps you will become mindful ˹of Allah۔

Allah describes the details of Fasting in the very next Ayat of the Quran. There are the details of the day’s limits and conditions for stopping Fasting.

اَيَّامًا مَّعْدُوْدَاتٍ ۚ فَمَنْ كَانَ مِنْكُمْ مَّرِيْضًا اَوْ عَلٰى سَفَرٍ فَعِدَّةٌ مِّنْ اَيَّامٍ اُخَرَ ۚ وَعَلَى الَّـذِيْنَ يُطِيْقُوْنَهٝ فِدْيَةٌ طَعَامُ مِسْكِيْنٍ ۖ فَمَنْ تَطَوَّعَ خَيْـرًا فَهُوَ خَيْـرٌ لَّـهٝ ۚ وَاَنْ تَصُوْمُوْا خَيْـرٌ لَّكُمْ ۖ اِنْ كُنْتُـمْ تَعْلَمُوْنَ

Fast a prescribed number of days. But whoever of you is ill or on a journey, let them fast an equal number of days after Ramaḍân. For those who can get only fast with extreme difficulty, 2 compensation can be made by feeding a needy person ˹for every day, not fasted˺. But whoever volunteers to give more is better for them. And too fast is better for you, if only you knew.

What Makes Ramadan Very Special?

The prophet Muhammad (PBUH) explains the importance of Ramadan very absolutely. Here I am describing some primary values of Ramadan Kareem.

  1. Fasting is an essential part of Islam and has been strongly recommended. There are many physical benefits of Fasting, as proved in modern science. It cleans our bodies very effectively every year. So Ramadan is a blessing of God for his servants.
  2. The Holy Quran, which is mercy and guidance for all the world, was revealed during Ramadan. 
  3. The third aspect of the goodness of Ramadan is that the Laila Tul Qadar (لیلتہ القدر) comes in this month. According to Quran, worshiping on this night is better than thousand-night worship.

There are many Hadiths about Fasting by Hazarat Muhammad (PBUH). Let us now examine some hadiths that will make the virtues of Ramadan clear to us.

The Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) said.

  • Fasting is a shield from the fire of Hell, the Same as you have a shield for battle.
  • As Ramadan starts, the doors of Heaven are opened, the Doors of Hell are closed, and the devils are restrained.
  • Whoever fasts in this Ramadan with belief and intention of reward, all his previous (minor) sins are forgiven.
