Recommended Deeds That We Should do during Ramadan

This article was send in by Hafsah Ali Ermes, jazak Allahu khayran.
The Prophet was the most generous person in doing good, and he was more
generous than ever during Ramadan when he would meet with Jibril.

1. As-Sadaqah (charity)

Whoever feeds the person who is breaking his fast, he will have his
reward (for his fasting) without decreasing anything from the reward of
the fasting person. (Ahmad and At-Tirmithi, and it is Sahih.)

2. Qiyam-ul-Layl (standing at night for prayer):

The Prophet said: Whoever stands (for prayer at night) during Ramadan,
with faith and seeking reward, he will be forgiven for his previous
(Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

The Prophet used to be more active (in prayer) during the nights of
Ramadan and during the last ten nights, he would wake everyone in his
family, young and old, whoever was able to perform prayer. (Muslim)

3. Recitation of the Noble Qur'an:

As the Prophet used to recite the Noble Qur'an often during Ramadan and
Jibril, upon him be peace, used to review the Qur'an with him during
Ramadhan. (Al-Bukhari)

The Prophet used to prolong his recitation for Qiyam (standing in
prayer at night) of Ramadan more than he did at other times.

Hudhayfah prayed with him one night and he recited Surah Al-Baqarah,
then Aal 'Imran and then An-Nisa'. He did not pass a verse that caused
fear except that he stopped at it and asked (supplicated to Allah). He
did not complete two Rak'ahs (units of prayer) until Bilal came and
called him to the prayer (Salat-ul-Fajr}. (Al-Bukhari)

4. Al-I'tikaf:

This means staying in the Masjid for worship, seeking to draw nearer to
Allah the Almighty. The Prophet performed Al-I'tikaf and he always made
Al-I'tikaf during the last ten nights of Ramadan until Allah the
Almighty took him away. This has been related in the Sahih (of Al-Bukhari)

5. 'Umrah:

This means visiting the Sacred House of Allah (the Kaabah) for the
performance of Tawaf and Sa'y during Ramadan, as the Prophet said: An
'Umbra performed during Ramadan is equivalent to a Hajj performed with me.
(Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

And he said: Al-'Umrah to Al-'Umrah is an expiation for whatever (sins
were committed) between them. (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
