Ramadan Mubarak!

Abu Hurayrah narrated that the Prophet said to his Companions,

There has come to you the month of Ramadan, which Allaah has enjoined you to fast. In this month, the gates of Paradise are opened and the gates of Hellfire are closed. The devils are chained in this month, and there is a night in it which is better than a thousand months of worship: whoever is deprived of its goodness is indeed deprived.”

[Ahmad – Shu’ayb al-Arnaa’oot graded it saheeh (sound)]
