Hadiths about fasting during Ramadan

4:25 PM

I have read some Hadiths-- Hadiths are the ways of the Sunnah, Sunnah meaning the following of the Prophet Muhammed (sallallahou alayhi wasallam)--dealing with fasting during Ramadan and everyday, insha'Allah (God willing) I would love to share with you what I read from the Hadiths, so as it is Ramadan, I have provided few Hadiths regarding fasting in Ramadan:

Summarized Sahih Al-Bukhari
Translated by Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan
Islamic University, Al-Madinah Al-Munawwarah

31.The Book of As-Saum (The Fasting)

Chapter 1. The superiority of As-Saum (the fasting).

919. Narrated by Abu Huraira
Allah's messenger (sallallahou alayhi wasallam) said, "Saum (fasting) is a shield (or a screen/shelter from the Hell fire). So, the person observing Saum (fast) should avoid sexual relation with his wife and should not behave foolishly and impudently, and if somebody fights with him or abuses him, he should say to him twice, 'I am observing Saum (fast).'" The Prophet (sallallahou alayhi wasallam) added, "By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, the smell coming out from the mouth of a person observing Saum (fast) is better with Allah (Subhana Wa Tala) than the smell of musk. (Allah says about the fasting person), 'He has left his food, drink, and desires for My sake. The Saum (fast) is for Me. So I will reward (the fasting person) for it and the reward of good deeds is multiplied ten times.'"

Chapter 2. Ar-Raiyan (one of the gates of Paradise) is for the people observing Saum (fast).

920. Narrated by Sahl:
The Prophet (sallallahou alayhi wasallam) said, "There is a gate in Paradise called Ar-Raiyan, and those who observe Saum (fasts) will enter through it on the Day of Resurrection and none except them will enter through it. It will be said, 'Where are those who used to observe Saum (fasts)?' They will get up, and none except them will enter through it. After their entry, the gate will be closed and nobody will enter through it."

923. Narrated by Abu Huraira:
Allah's messenger (sallallahou alayhi wasallam) said, "When the month of Ramadan starts, the gates of the heaven are opened and the gates of Hell are closed and the devils are chained."
