Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that once when the Ramadan month arrived, the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) exclaimed: “Subhanallah! What a great moment you are about to welcome, and what a great moment is about to dawn on you!” ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said: “May my father and mother be sacrificed for you, O Messenger of Allah! Has some revelation descended or an enemy approaches?”

The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) replied: “No! Instead it is the Month of Ramadan! Allah grants forgiveness on the first night (of this month) to every member of this qiblah [every Muslim]!”

Someone in our local Masjid was sharing this lengthy narration in the form of a booklet. However, many said it is a Shi’i narration.

Abu Dharr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said that one day, “I entered at midday in the presence of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) in his Masjid and I said: ‘O Rasulullah, by my father and mother, please advise me with such advice that Allah will benefit me by it.’

So he said: ‘Yes, and how noble you are O Abu Dharr! Most surely, you are from us, the Ahlul Bayt and I am giving you advise, so remember it, for surely it is the collection of [all] the paths of goodness. Surely if you memorise them and put them into practice, you will have two folds of mercy [In this world and the Hereafter]…”
