There was once a fire worshipper who saw his son eating in the presence of Muslims during the month of Ramadhaan. As soon as he saw his son eating before the Muslims, he hit him and reprimanded him saying, “Why do you not show regard for the sanctity and respect of the Muslims during the month of Ramadhaan?”

It so happened that the fire worshipper passed away that very week. Soon after he passed away, the ‘Aalim of that locality had a dream in which he saw the fire worshipper in Jannah! In the dream, he asked him, “Were you not a fire worshipper?” The man replied, “I was a fire worshipper. However, shortly before I passed away, Allah Ta‘ala honoured me, by inspiring me to accept Islam, due to the respect that I had shown for the month of Ramadhaan.” (Nuzhatul Majaalis pg. 201)

The blessed month of Ramadhaan holds a very special place in the heart of every Muslim, and is eagerly anticipated by one and all. While most people are aware of the abundant blessings, special mercies and tremendous rewards that are on offer in this auspicious period, not all manage to capitalize on this opportunity and improve their relationship with their Creator during this month of mercy.  

In this regard, it is the pious servants of Allah Ta‘ala who truly understand the objective of Ramadhaan and the crucial role it plays in the life of a Muslim. They thus value every second of this blessed month and strive to gain maximum goodness and blessings from it.

(Abu Muslim Al-Khawlaani [rahimahullah] #3)

On one occasion, the wife of Abu Muslim Al-Khawlaani (rahimahullah) said to him, “O Abu Muslim! We do not have any flour!” Abu Muslim (rahimahullah) asked her, “Do you have any money?” She replied, “I have one dirham which we earned through selling yarn.” Abu Muslim (rahimahullah) instructed, “Hand me the dirham and give me a sack.”

Abu Muslim (rahimahullah) thereafter proceeded to the market and stood before a man who was selling food. However, at that moment, a beggar also arrived and stood before Abu Muslim (rahimahullah) imploring, “O Abu Muslim! Give me some charity!” As Abu Muslim (rahimahullah) only had one dirham and there was no food at home, he turned and fled from the beggar, arriving at another food stall. The beggar, however, followed him and continued to call out to him. Abu Muslim (rahimahullah) thus fled for a third time and went to a third stall, but the beggar persistently followed him and continued to implore him for charity.
