“Describe to me a day in His (S.A.W)’s life during Ramadan”

When the time of sehri was determined, Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) would consume the pre-dawn meal. Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) advised the partaking of food during this time even if it be only a morsel of fold or a sip of drink. Sehri would be delayed until just before Fajr Salaah. 

Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) would make his intention for fasting and he would clean his teeth with a miswak. 

Several narrations indicate that Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) would have guests with him from time to time. 

Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) would then perform Fajr Salaah in Masjidun-Nabawi. 

Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) was the most benevolent of people but his benevolence was markedly increased during Ramadan. Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم)’s entire day used to be spent in acts of generosity and charity. 

When Maghrib azaan was called out, Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) would not delay breaking his fast. Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) would break his fast before performing Maghrib Salaah with a fresh date. If a fresh date was not available, then Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) would eat a dried date. If there were no dates available, Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) would drink a sip of water or, according to some narrations, a particular type of soup. 

Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) used to supplicate after he broke his fast, reading the dua that we read at the time of breaking the fast. 

Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) never sought out a certain dish of food. Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) ate whatever was available and as was his habit, Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) never ate his fill. 

Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) would then perform Esha Salaah. Esha was followed by Taraweeh; a twenty rakaat cycle, with rests after ever four rakaats. 

After this, Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) would retreat into his room, spending a significant portion of the night engaged in Ibadah. 

More time was devoted to reading the Quran during Ramadan. Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) used to recite the Quran every night to Jibra’eel (عليه السلام) and Jibra’eel (عليه السلام) would reciprocate by reciting it back to Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم), as a means of preserving and confirming the Quran. 

Ibn Abbas (رضى الله عنه) reported that Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) was the most generous of people and he was even more generous during the month of Ramadan when Jibra’eel (عليه السلام) visited him. Jibra’eel (عليه السلام) would meet with him every night of Ramadan and Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) would recite the Quran to him. [Bukhari 1803]

A’isha (رضى الله عنها) narrates, “With the start of the last 10 days of Ramadan, Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) would tighten his waist belt (work hard) and used to pray all the night and used to keep his family awake for prayers.” [Bukhari]

Abu Hurairah (رضى الله عنه) narrates, “The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) used to observe I’tikaaf every year in the month of Ramadan for 10 days and the year he passed away, he observed I’tikaaf for 20 days.” [Bukhari] 

Don’t forget to recite as much Durood as you can!

Love and Duas,

TWS ❤
