Abu Huraira related that the Prophet said: Allah the Majestic and Exalted said:

“Every deed of man will receive ten to 700 times reward, except Siyam (fasting), for it is for Me and I shall reward it (as I like). There are 2 occasions of joy for one who fasts: one when he breaks the fast and the other when he will meet his Lord”


Ibn Abbas reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said to an Ansari woman,

“What prevented you from performing the Hajj pilgrimage with us?”

She said, “We have a camel and the father of this man and his son rode it and left only one camel for us to use for irrigation.”

The Prophet said, “Perform the Umrah pilgrimage when Ramadan arrives, for Umrah during Ramadan is equal to the Hajj pilgrimage.”

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhiallaho anho):
Allah’s Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam)said,

“Fasting is a shield (or a screen or a shelter). So, the person observing fasting should avoid sexual relation with his wife and should not behave foolishly and impudently, and if somebody fights with him or abuses him, he should tell him twice, ‘I am fasting.”

The Prophet added,
“By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, the smell coming out from the mouth of a fasting person is better in the sight of Allah than the smell of musk. (Allah says about the fasting person), ‘He has left his food, drink and desires for My sake. The fast is for Me. So I will reward (the fasting person) for it and the reward of good deeds is multiplied ten times.”
Sahih Al-Bukhari Vol. 3 : No. 118

Narrated by Abu Huraira (Radhiallaho anho):
Allah’s Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said

“The blessed month has come to you. Allah has made fasting during it obligatory upon you. During it, the gates to Paradise are opened and the gates to hellfire are locked, and the devils are chained. There is a night [during this month] which is better than a thousand months. Whoever is deprived of its good is really deprived [of something great].”

This is related by Ahmad, an-Nasa’i, and al-Baihaqi.

Narrated by Abu Said Al Khudri (Radhiallaho anho):
Allah’s Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Allah’s  Apostle said,

“When the believers pass safely over (the bridge  across) Hell, they will be stopped at a bridge in between Hell and  Paradise where they will retaliate upon each other for the injustices  done among them in the world, and when they get purified of all their  sins, they will be admitted into Paradise. By Him in Whose Hands the  life of Muhammad is everybody will recognize his dwelling in Paradise better than he recognizes his dwelling in this world.”

Sahih Al-Bukhari Vol. 3 : No. 620

Narrated by Anas ibn Malik (Radhiallaho anho):

Allah’s Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said,

“When a woman observes the 5 times of prayer, fasts during Ramadan, preserves her chastity and obeys her husband, she may enter by any of the gates of Paradise she wishes.”

(Al-Tirmidhi 956, Abu Nu’aym transmitted it in al-Hilyah)
