Allaah ﷻ says in the Qur'aan "O' you who believe, fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you so that you may achieve Taqwaa (righteousness, God-fearing)."
the person who sends one Durood upon him, Allah Taala will send ten mercies upon that person.
The blessed month of Ramadaan is just around the corner. We should prepare ourselves to receive this month with sincerity in our fasting and our nightly prayers.
Allaah, the Glorious, has guided us to this deen (of Islaam) and without His guidance we would be lost. We should be grateful we belong to this Ummah, the best nation that has ever existed.
