Ramadhaan Advice from Shaykh Hasan Abdul-Wahhaab Al-Bannaa (May Allah preserve him and his family upon good).
Question: What advice do you have for our fasting brothers in America? Advice in regards to the drawing closer to Allah during this blessed month.
Answer: This is Shahrul-Qur’aan (the month of Al-Qur’aan). This is Shahrul-Qur’aan. Read Al-Qur’aan in abundance. Indulge in reading Al-Qur’aan. This is Shahrul-Ibaadah (the month of worship) and Shahrul-Qiyaamah (the month of standing in prayer). Increase in worship; in obedience to Allah. Increase in standing in prayer. Increase in prayer. Pray the night prayer with the jamaa’ah if you are able to, or pray in your homes and it is not a problem if you hold the Mushaf (copy of Al-Quraan) in your hands while you pray.
Read Al-Qur’aan with understanding and reflection. But if one cannot understand it, still read it. Increase during this month in reading Al-Qur’aan. Shahul-Qur’aan.
