Hadiths of Prophet for the Month of Ramadan

SAHIH AL-BUJARY
Following is the summary of Hadiths shared at the bottom of this page regarding the holy month of Ramadan.
[1] It means: fasting is recommended for those who fear to commit fornication or other unlawful and aberrant sexual acts during their single, for lack of a stable partner.
[2] There are several interpretations for this hadith; The most common is: the good works done in these months will be fully rewarded, even if the months are only twenty-nine days or thirty; Or that it is no problem for the Muslim to begin his fast on a wrong day, provided he has carefully observed the moon, or performs the stay in Arafa on a wrong date, without intention. The good works of the Muslims are not rejected by Allah.
[3] His name is 'Uwaymir bin' Amir bin Z and d H W s ari. He died the year 32H. His tomb is in Damascus.
[4] Apparently, the man whom the  Prophet (PBUH) asked had a habit of fasting the last days of each month and did not fast the last days of Sha'ban because of his closeness to Ramadan. With his words, the  Prophet (B and P) wanted to show him that if it was his custom to fast the last days of each month he should continue with his custom.

THE VIRTUE OF FASTING  
919.     Abu   Huraira related that the   Messenger of Allah (B and P) said: "Fasting is a protection (of Fire). The fasting must, therefore, abandon all sexual relations and all bad behavior. And if someone attacks or insults you, you should say, 'I am fasting' - twice -. And by Him in whose hands is my life! The smell that comes from the mouth of the fasting is better for Allah than the perfume of musk. (Allah says of the fasting): (Leave your food, your drink and your desires for Me. Fasting is for Me and I will reward for it.)   The good work has its reward multiplied by ten.

TO RAIEN FOR THE FASTENERS

"

" Abu   Bakr said: 'May my parents be offered by you! Surely whoever is called from these portals will not be in any hurry. Will there be someone called from all the portals together? '   The Prophet (B & P) said, "Yes, and I hope you are one of them."
