Detailed History of Ramadan Month

Ramadan is a sacred month where Allah (swt) is constantly testing His creation and giving him the opportunity to attain His infinite Blessing. Fasting is a complete purification and a means to develop awareness of the presence of Allah (swt). The consciousness of Allah ( Taqwa ) is a protection against the schemes of Shaitan , and the suffering of this world. Allah has informed us that, "Whoever does his duty to Allaah (has Taqwa ), He marks a path and gives sustenance from where He does not imagine." And whoever trusts in Allah is sufficient for him. Allah has set a measure for everything. " (65: 2) 
Many Muslims today have a misconception about fasting and a person's activities during fasting. They enter into a state of semi-hibernation, wasting most of the hours of light. If they respect Allah (swt), they wake up for the salat , but then go back to sleep immediately. This unnatural dream makes them lazy, clumsy and often lose the real notion of things. 
Ramadan , it is really a time of increased activity where the Muslim, now lightened from the burdens of eating and drinking, must be more eager to strive and strive for Allah.
The Prophet (sas) spent about Ramadan nine times after the Hijrah . But they were full of decisive events and left us a shining example of sacrifice and submission to Allah. 
In the first year after the Hijrah , the Prophet (sas) sent Hamza ibn Abdul Muttalib with thirty Muslim horsemen to Saif Bahr to investigate three hundred Coraixies horsemen who had camped suspiciously in that area. The Muslims were about to attack the unbelievers, but were separated by Majdy ibn Umar al-Juhany. The hypocrites of Medina, intending to oppose the unity of the Muslims, built their own mosque (Masjid Ad-Dirar). The Prophet, (sas), ordered to destroy this mosque in Ramadan . 

On the seventeenth day of Ramadan from 3 DH, Allah (swt) separated the truth from falsehood in the Great Battle of Badr . The Prophet (s), and 313 of his companions left to join one of his caravans that had left Mecca. It was guided by Abu Sufyan, and its value stood at around 50,000 dinars. They encountered a well-equipped army of the nobility of the Korahis , who tried to quench the light of Islam. Despite being outnumbered three to one and looking weak and tired, the Muslims defended themselves with a burning desire to protect the Prophet (sas) and meet their Lord through martyrdom.
In 6 DH, Said ibn Haritha was sent to Wadi al-Qura at the head of a detachment to confront Fatima bint Rabiah, the queen of that area. Fatima had previously attacked a caravan carried by Said and had succeeded in obtaining the spoils. She was known to be the most protected woman in Arabia, as she was equally well known in her hostility to Islam. She was killed in a battle against these Muslims in the month of Ramadan . 
In Ramadan of 8 DH, the treaty of Hudaibiyya was broken and the Muslim armies faced the Byzantines in the North. Mohammad (sas), felt the need to deal a fatal blow to skepticism in the Arabian Peninsula and conquer the city of Mecca. Allah has declared His Sanctuary a place of peace, security and blessing. Now was the time to purify the Ka'ba and to rid her of nakedness and abomination. The Prophet (sas) departed with the largest army that Medina had ever seen. The people thickened the lines of the army as it approached Mecca. The determination of the Muslims, guided by the desire of Allah (swt), Was so imposing that the city of Mecca was conquered without battle, on the twentieth day of Ramadan . This has been one of the most important dates in Islamic history since after this time, Islam was firmly entrenched in the Arabian Peninsula. During the same month and year, after destroying the Mecca idols, detachments were sent to the other major centers of polytheism and al-Lat, Manat and Suwa, some of the greatest idols of Arabia were destroyed. Islam was firmly entrenched in the Arabian Peninsula. During the same month and year, after destroying the Mecca idols, detachments were sent to the other major centers of polytheism and al-Lat, Manat and Suwa, some of the greatest idols of Arabia were destroyed. Islam was firmly entrenched in the Arabian Peninsula. During the same month and year, after destroying the Mecca idols, detachments were sent to the other major centers of polytheism and al-Lat, Manat and Suwa, some of the greatest idols of Arabia were destroyed. 
Such was Ramadan at the time of the Prophet (sas). It was a time of purification, seeking good and forbidding evil, and compromising one's life and wealth.   
After the death of the Prophet (sas), the Muslims continued this tradition and Allah used the true muminim to affect the course of history.
Back in AD 582, Salah ad-din Al-Ayyubi, after fighting with the Crusaders for years, finally expelled them from Syria and the lands occupied in the month of Ramadan . The Muslim world would then face one of its most terrifying challenges. 
In the 7th century DH the Mongols were invading all of Asia and destroying everything that stood in their way. Genghis Kan called "the scourge of God sent to punish mankind for its faults." In 617 DH, Samarkanda, Ray and Hamdan were taken and their inhabitants passed by knife more than 700,000 people were killed or captive. In 656 DH, Hulagu, the grandson of Genghis Kan, continued this destruction. Even Baghdad, the main city of the Muslim world, was looted. Some estimates say that about 1,800,000 Muslims were killed in this tremendous carnage. Christians were asked to eat pork and drink wine openly while surviving Muslims were forced to participate in drinking orgies. Wine was sprinkled in the mosques and the Adz├ón (called the salat ) was not allowed . Faced with such a horrible disaster and with the entire Muslim world threatened and Europe subject to the same fate, Allah (swt) raised the Mamluks, under the command of Saif Ad-din Qutz of Egypt, who united the Muslim army and clashed with the Muslims. Mongolians in Ain Jalut the twenty-fifth day of Ramadan . Under great pressure, Muslims with the help of Allah, And with a skillful and brave strategy crushed the Mongol army and stopped this wave of terror. The whole civilized world sighed with relief and admired the achievement of these noble sons of Islam.
This was the Ramadan spirit that allowed our ancestors to face seemingly impossible challenges. It was a time of intense activity, spending the day in the saddle and the night in Salat asking Allah for mercy and forgiveness. 
Today, the Muslim world is faced with emptiness, armed aggression, widespread corruption and tempting materialism. Certainly we are in need of Muslims who can follow in the footsteps of our Prophet (sas), the nobles Sahaba (the companions), Saif Qutuz, Salah ad-Din and so many others who strove for Islam . Certainly we are in need of Muslims who are not afraid of the threats of the unbeliever, Muslims whose fast is complete and is not only a source of hunger and thirst. 
May Allah raise a generation of Muslims who can bring Islam to all parts of the globe and that He will provide us with strength and success. May Allah be of those who follow Islam during and after Ramadan.
