:: Striving Hard, Competing for Good Deeds in Ramadaan ::
All Praise is due to Allaah, and may the peace and blessings be upon His Messenger Muhammad.
is legislated for all the Muslims to strive hard in the various types
of worship during this noble month. They should strive to pray voluntary
prayers and recite the Qur'an with reflection and thinking. They should
increase the glorification of Allaah [saying "SubhanAllaah"], declaring
Allaah’s right to be worshiped alone [saying "La illaaha il Allaah"],
praising Him [saying "Al-Hamdulillaah"], declaring His greatness [saying
"Allaahu Akbar"] and seeking His forgiveness.
They should say
legislated supplications, command the good, forbid the evil, invite to
Allaah, be generous to the poor and needy, strive to be kind to parents,
keep good family ties, honor the neighbor, visit the sick, and other
types of good deeds. This is due to the Prophet’s (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa
sallam) statement:

*"Allaah looks at your competing for good
works during it and He proudly tells the angels about you all.
Therefore, show Allaah goodness from yourselves. For verily, the
wretched person is the one who is deprived of Allaah’s Mercy during it
(Ramadaan)." *
– Majma ‘uz-Zawa’id 3:142; Kanzul-’Ummal no. 23692.

This is also due to what is reported from him (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) that he said:
"Whoever draws near to Allaah during it (Ramadaan) with a single
characteristic from the characteristics of (voluntary) goodness, he is
like whoever performs an obligatory act in other times. And whoever
performs an obligatory act during it, he is like whoever performed
seventy obligatory acts in other times." *
– Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah, no. 1887.

This is also due to his (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) statement in the authentic hadith:
* "An ‘Umrah performed during Ramadaan is equal to a performance of Hajj – or he said – a Hajj with me." *
– Al-Bukhari (no. 1863) and Muslim (no. 1256).

ahadith and narrations that prove the sanctioning of competing, and
being aggressive in performing the various acts of goodness in this
noble month are numerous. Allaah is the one Who is asked to help us and
the rest of the Muslims to do all that contains His Pleasure and to
accept our fast and standing for night prayer. We ask Him to correct our
situations and protect us all from the deviations of trials and
temptations. Likewise, we ask Him to make the leaders of the Muslims
righteous, and unite their word upon the truth. Verily, Allaah is the
Guardian of that, and He is capable of doing it.
