Prophet Muhammad's (saw) Sermon on welcoming the month of Ramadan
O People! The month of Allah (Ramadan) has approached you with His mercy and blessings. This is the month that is the best of all months in the estimation of Allah. Its days are the best among the days; its nights are the best among the nights. Its hours are the best among the hours.
Prophet Muhammad's (saw) Teachings about the Month of Ramadan
Imam al-Baqir (A.S.) said that Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) used to face the people and say: "O people, when the crescent of the month of Ramadan shines, all devils will be chained, the doors of heaven will open, while the doors of hell will be closed; prayers will be answered... Then with the advent of the month of Shawwal, the believers will be told to count their rewards... These rewards, I swear by God, could not be compared with material rewards of money".
