To each is a goal to which Allah turns each; then strive together. Towards all that is good. Wheresoever you are, Allah will bring you together. For Allah has power over all things. (Qur’an 2:148)


It is mentioned in the narrations that the holy month of Ramadan is the spring of hearts, the spring of the Holy Qur’an. This does not refer to that heart which is in our chest, or the heart behind the ribs of our chest, but instead that heart which is of our soul, that which is the true and sensational heart of the human being. This heart of the soul passes through different seasons as well – spring, summer, autumn, and winter.


The Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, said: “This is the month of Ramadhan, a blessed month, in which Allah has made its fasts obligatory. In it, He opens the gates of Paradise and in it, Satan is put into shackles. There is a night in it, which is worthier than thousand months; whoever misses it he is indeed deprived.” He used to repeat it three times. (Al Amali, Ch. 13 h. #2)


The Prophet, peace be upon him and his Family, said: “Every year, when the month of Ramadhan enters, the Garden arrays itself ornately and beautifies itself.

So when the first night of that month falls, a gentle wind blows from under the Throne, called al-Mutheerah; and the leaves of the heavenly trees flap and the door shutters clank, to produce a melodious tune, the like of which the hearers have never heard.”

(as narrated in Al-Amali ch. 27, h. 3)
