Respected Brothers and Sisters/ May Allah's peace and blessings be upon you
Wishing you a very blessed and prosperous Happy Ramadan. May Allah (God) bring happiness, peace, reward, and joy to all of you and your families and to all of humanity. We hope that this sacred month is a source of blessing and happiness and that all good works are accepted.
In this blessed month of Ramadan,
May Allah the Almighty shower his choicest blessings on all of us.
May Allah make our Iman stronger.
May Allah forgive all our sins, short comings and mistakes.
May Allah fulfill all our desires.
May Allah safeguard us from all calamities and troubles.
May Allah assist us all in rushing towards good deeds and staying away from the bad. May all of our efforts and prayers (duas) in this blessed month be accepted by Allah. Ameen.
"We are also reminded that our iman (faith) cannot be blind faith; it must be active in reflecting, pondering, enriching our understanding, expanding our knowledge and contemplating our successes in this life and in the Hereafter. Insha Allah, this month will provide us all with the opportunity to continue to act upon such deeds. The opportunity to nourish our deen (Way of life) and increase the noor (light) in our hearts. The opportunity to fortify ourselves for the challenges of today, tomorrow, the next day, the next month, and beyond."
Muslims believe Ramadan is a month in which the rewards for good deeds and generosity are multiplied. Let us do all that we can to reap the benefits of this blessed month. May Allah Almighty make this month a source of light and strength and may He uplift our condition through His Mercy.
Please remember all Muslims and for the well being of all humanity in your daily prayers/duas. Ramadan Mubarak (Blessings) and may Allah Almighty reward you abundantly.

" It is the month of Ramadan in which the Quran was revealed, a Guidance for mankind with clear teachings showing the Right Way and a criterion of truth and falsehood - (Quran 2:185). Ramadan is the month of the Quran, as the Prophet (May the blessings and peace be upon him), has said, and that the Quran has four rights: Qirat (to read it), Tilawat (to understand and act upon its guidance), Tadabbur (to comprehend its teachings) and Balaghat (to preach and convey its Message).
Herewith, we share with you once again:
Allah's Apostle said, "When the month of Ramadan starts, the gates of the heaven are opened and the gates of Hell are closed and the devils are chained." [Sahih Al-Bukhari]
Narrated Abu Huraira(r.a) : The Prophet said:"... whoever fasts during Ramadan out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah's rewards, then all his past sins will be forgiven." [Sahih Al-Bukhari]
"...whoever witnesses the Month of Ramadan should fast through it..." Quran [2:185]
"Ramadan is the (month) in which the Quran was sent down, as a guide to mankind and a clear guidance and judgment (so that mankind will distinguish from right and wrong)" [Quran 2:183]
"Oh you who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that you may learn piety and rightousness" [Quran, al-Baqarah, 2:183]
"...And it is better for you that ye fast, if ye only knew." [Quran 2:184]
On the last day of one Sha'ban, Prophet Muhammad (saws), gave a Khutbah about the upcoming month of Ramadan. It is a very important Khutbah that we should carefully read before every Ramadan to prepare ourselves mentally for the sacred month.
"Oh people! A great month is coming to you. A blessed month. A month in which there is one night that is better than a thousand months. A month in which Allah has made it compulsory upon you to fast by day, and voluntary to pray by night.
Whoever draws nearer to Allah by performing any of the voluntary good deeds in this month shall receive the same reward as is there for performing an obligatory deed at any other time. And whoever discharges an obligatory deed in this month shall receive the reward of performing seventy obligations at any other time.
It is the month of Sabr (patience), and the reward for sabr is Heaven. It is the month of kindness and charity. It is a month in which a believer's sustenance is increased.
Whoever gives food to a fasting person to break his fast, shall have his sins forgiven, and he will be saved from the Fire of Hell, and he shall have the same reward as the fasting person, without the latter's reward being diminished at all." [Narrated by Ibn Khuzaymah]
