Ramadan Roundup

Alhamdulillah, we have all lived to see another Ramadan and insha’Allah we will benefit from this month of months. As this article reminds us:

The month of Ramadan has arrived again, the month of fasting and prayer. It is the month that provides an opportunity for forgiveness from Allah and emancipation from our sins. It is the month for performing good deeds and giving in charity. It is the month when the gates of the heavens are opened and the rewards for our deeds are magnified many times over. It is the month wherein prayers are answered and the status of the worshipper is elevated. It is the month wherein sins are forgiven.

Allah bestows so many blessings upon his servants in the month of Ramadan. This is the month of fasting that is one of the five pillars of Islam. The Prophet (peace be upon him) fasted during this month and directed his followers to do the same. He told us that whoever fasts this month with faith, seeking Allah’s reward, will have all of his past sins forgiven. He likewise informed us that whoever stands in prayer throughout this month will have all of his past sins forgiven.

So, here’s a quick list of some of the more interesting Ramadan-related posts, sites and resources that we’ve come across in recent times.  If anyone wants to recommend anything else, please feel free to use the comments and we’ll add them accordingly.
