Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ said, the Blessed and Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has stated herald the glad tidings to his blessed Sahabah رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُم :The sacred month of Ramadan, which is extremely blessed, has approached you, Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ has made fasts obligatory upon you; doors of Jannah are opened in this month and the doors of Hell are closed, even devils are chained up; one of its nights is better than a thousand nights and the one who is deprived of its blessings is absolutely deprived.
