The Prophet (saas) said;

“The world will not come to an end until a day would come to the people on which there will be general massacre and bloodshed.”

(Muslim)

The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) says, “Ramadan has come to you. (It is) a month of blessing, in which Allah covers you with blessing, for He sends down Mercy, decreases sins and answers prayers. In it, Allah looks at your competition (in good deeds), and boasts about you to His angels. So show Allah goodness from yourselves, for the unfortunate one is he who is deprived in (this month) of the mercy of Allah, the Mighty, the Exalted.”
[Narrated by Tabarani]

Abu Umaamah r.a.a. said: I said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, tell me of an action by which I may enter Paradise’. He said: ‘Take to Fasting, there is nothing like it.’ [An-Nasaa'ee, Ibn Hibbaan, Al-Haakim, Saheeh]
“Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may attain taqwaa.” [2:183]

“O people, there comes upon you now a great month, a most blessed month, in which lies a night greater in worth than one thousand months. It is a month in which Allah has made it compulsory that fasting should be observed by day; and He has made the ‘Taraweeh’ by night a ‘Sunnah’. Whosoever tries drawing nearer to Allah by performing any non-obligatory deed in this month, for him shall be such a reward as if he had perform a “Fardh” (obligatory observance) in any other time of the year. And Whosoever performs a ‘Fardh’, for him shall be the reward of seventy ‘Fardh’ in any other time of the year.

This is indeed the month of patience, and the reward for true patience is ‘Jannah’ (Paradise); it is the month of sympathy for one’s fellowmen; it is the month wherein a true believer’s “Rizq” (provisions) is increased. Whosoever feeds a fasting person in order to break the fast (at sunset), for him there shall be forgiveness of his sins and emancipation from the fire of ‘Jahannam’ (Hell), and for him shall be the same reward as for him (whom he fed), without that person’s reward being diminished in the least.”

Thereupon we said: “O Messenger of Allah, not all of us possess the means whereby we can provide enough for a fasting person to break his fast.”

The Messenger of Allah replied: “Allah grants this same reward to him who gives a fasting person a single date or a drink of water or a sip of milk to break the fast. This is a month, the first part of which brings Allah’s Mercy, the middle of which brings His forgiveness and the last part of which brings emancipation from the fire of ‘Jahannam’ (Hell). ‘Whosoever lessens the burden of his servants (bondsmen) in this month, Allah will forgive him and free him from the fire of ‘Jahannam’.”

“And in this month, four things you should endeavour to perform in great number, two of which shall be to please your Lord, while the other two shall be those without which you cannot make do. Those which shall be to please your Lord, are that you should in great quantity recite the ‘Kalimah Tayyibah’: Laa ilaaha il’lal Lah ‘ and make much ‘Istighfaar’ (beg Allah’s forgiveness with Astaghfirullah). And as for those two without which you cannot make do, you should beg Allah for entry into Paradise and seek refuge with Him from the fire of ‘Jahannam’.”

“And whosoever gave a person, who fasted, water to drink Allah shall grant him a drink from my fountain such a drink, whereafter he shall never again feel thirsty until he enters ‘Jannah’.” (Reported by ‘Ibn Khuzaimah’ in his ‘Sahih’).

From Aboo Dardaa radiyallaahu `anhu, who said that I heard Allaah’s Messenger, sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam say: “The mosque is the house of every pious person, and Allaah has granted comfort and mercy for everyone for whom the mosque is his house, and that they will traverse the bridge (as-Siraat) to Allah’s Pleasure and Paradise.”

[Reported by at-Tabaraanee in al-Kabeer and al-Awsat and al-Bazzaar who declared it hasan, and it occurs in Saheehut-Targheeb (no. 328)]

Narrated by Abdullah bin Umar (Radhiallaho anho):
Allah’s Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said,

“A Muslim is a  brother of another Muslim, so he should not oppress him, nor should  he hand himover to an oppressor. Whoever fulfilled the needs of his  brother, Allah will fulfill his needs;whoever brought his (Muslim) brother out of a discomfort, Allah will bring him out of the
discomforts of the Day of Resurrection, and whoever screened a Muslim, Allah will screen him on the Day of Resurrection.”

Sahih Al-Bukhari Vol. 3 : No. 622
