In a recent bayan a Moulana stated It is reported that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

We must do four things in abundance in the month of Ramadan:

1. Recite the first Kalimah as much as possible

2. Say – Istighfar (Seeking Forgiveness)

3. Make Du’a – Asking Allah to grant us Jannat.

4. Make Du’a – Asking Allah to save us from Jahannam.

Is this correct?


This is part of a lengthy Hadith reported by Sayyiduna Salman (radiyallahu’anhu) about Ramadan, that is considered weak, but suitable for practice.

See the full wording of the Hadith and a detailed analyses on the chains here.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
