Ramadan is the (month) in which was sent down the Qur'an, as a guide to mankind, also clear (Signs) for guidance and judgment (Between right and wrong).
(Al Qur’an, 2:185)
O People! Indeed (Ramadan) is the blessed month of Allah. A month of blessing, mercy and forgiveness. A month which is the best of months. Its days are the best of days, its nights are the best of nights, and its hours are the best of hours. It is the month which invites you to be the guests of Allah and invites you to be one of those near to Him. Each breath you take glorifies him; your sleep is worship, your deeds are accepted and your supplications are answered. So, ask Allah, your Lord to give you a sound body and an enlightened heart so you may be able to fast and recite his book, for only he is unhappy who is deprived of Allah's forgiveness during this great month. Honor your old, show kindness to the young ones, guard your tongues, close your eyes to that which is not permissible for your sight and close your ears to that which is forbidden to hear. Repent to Allah for your sins and raise your hands in dua during these times, for they are the best of times and Allah looks towards his creatures with kindness, replying to them during the hours and granting their needs if he is asked.

O People! Indeed your souls are dependant on your deeds, free it with Istaghfar (repentance) lighten its loads by long prostrations (sajda); and know that Allah swears by his might: That there is no punishment for the one who prays and prostrates and he shall have no fear of the fire on the day or Judgment. The one who spreads his kindness, Allah will spread His mercy over him on the day of Judgment. Who so ever performs a recommended prayer in this month Allah will keep the fire of hell away from him. Whoever performs an obligator prayer Allah will reward him with seventy prayers (worth) in this month. Who ever prays a lot during this month will have his load lightened on the day of Judgment. He who recites one verse of the Holy Qur’an will be given the rewards of reciting the whole Qur’an during other months.

O People! Indeed during this month the doors of heaven are open, therefore ask Allah not to close them for you; The doors of hell are closed, so ask Allah to keep them closed for you. During this month Shaitaan (Satan) is imprisoned so ask your Lord not to let him have power over you.
