Ramadan acts

When we approach the month of Ramadan we ought to feel that we have stepped into the arena of Islam, and that we ought to work hard to fill our minds, hearts, feelings, emotions and entire life with Islam.
We ought to read the Quran with contemplation, and sit between the hands of Allah and relate all our pains, problems and needs to Him, so that this, along with the fasting we perform during the day, would confirm one’s will in obeying Allah. Once we gather all these elements, we will find out that it implants in man the knowledge in Allah, as well as His closeness, love and friendship… Allah knows all our hidden truths, so let us make Him the One we lean on and the refuge we seek so as to complain to Him what we do not complain to others, and to confess our secrets and sins before Him so that He would purify us and set us free from them. Disclosing our secrets before others might scandalize and degrade us, and it might not lead to any aspired form of pardon and forgiveness, while Allah can grant us all that, for: “He is the One that accepts repentance from His Servants and forgives sins: and He knows all that ye do” (42:25).

Dua al-Iftitah is recommended to be recited every night during the holy month of Ramadan. This dua was taught by Imam al-Mahdi (ajtf)

Dua Abu Hamza al-Thumali is a Dua attributed to Imam Zein al-Abidin (a.s.). It was said that Imam ‘recited the supplication every evening or dawn (Sahar) during the month of Ramadan.

This dua recommended to be recited during the holy nights of Ramadan and Laylatul qadr.

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) has said, “Whoever recites an ayat from the Qur’an (in Ramadan) will receive a similar reward as the one who recites the entire Qur’an in other months.”

Al-Qadr Night is not matched in its rewards by any other night; deeds in it bring about the good of a thousand months; in it the deeds are weighed and the angels and the Spirit come down by Allah’s permission; it is from sunset till the break of dawn. It is most likely to be one of the following eves, the nineteenth, the twenty-first or the twenty-third of Ramadan.

See below the general acts of worship recommended on this Holy night.
