Please provide the correct reference for his statement:

Al-Hafiz said:

“Know that in the month of Ramadan, there are two Jihads of the self which take place for the believer: Jihad of the daytime with fasting. Jihad of the night time with standing for prayer.”



This is the statement of Hafiz Ibn Rajab Al Hambali (rahimahullah).

He writes, “During the month of Ramadan, people are confronted with two [internal] struggles. One during the day while fasting and the other during the night to stand for [tarawih]. Whoever overcomes these two battles, fulfils their rights and is patient, will be granted reward without limit.”

(Lataiful Ma’arif, pg. 319, Dar Ibn Kathir edition)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.

لطائف المعارف لابن رجب (ص: ٣١٩):
واعلم أن المؤمن يجتمع له في شهر رمضان جهادان لنفسه: جهاد بالنهار على الصيام وجهاد بالليل على القيام فمن جمع بين هذين الجهادين ووفى بحقوقهما وصبر عليهما وفى أجره بغير حساب.
