Learning isn't really learning, when it is not shared or used, this blog was created to gather things that I have learned or found particularly interesting in my search of knowledge.
We are reminded in the Quran to reflect on its beautiful verses, thus the importance of not just reading what is on the outside, but to ponder on deeper meanings, in order to taste the truth.

Hadith 2: Al-Arba'in Collection Of 40 Hadiths on Ramadhan - Mufti Muhammad ibn Adam Al-Kawthari
40 Hadiths related to the blessed month of
The companion Sahl (RA) relates that the Messenger of Allah
(SAW) said: “Verily in Paradise (Jannah) there is a door called Rayyaan. This door
Rayyaan is reserved for people who observed fasting in the month of Ramdaan. It
will be announced, “Where are those people who fasted in Ramadaan?” and those
who observed the fasts will stand up, and no one else besides them will enter through
this door.Once they enter, the door
will be closed.
Recorded by Bukhari and Muslim
There will be different doors to Jannah reserved for people,
based on their different acts of worship.For example, the people who observed Salah excessively will enter
through a door called Baab-usallah and people of Jihaad will be called from the
door of Jihaad (Baab ul Jihaad) and people of charity will be called from the
door of charity. And thus, the people of fasting will be called from Rayaan.
Abu Bakr once asked the Prophet (SAW), “Will there be anyone
who is called from all the doors?” and He (SAW) said “Yes, and I hope that you
will be of those people.”
In summary, this just shows that there are specific doors
that will open for specific people, based on their acts of worship either it be
naflprayers, Dhikr, charity etc. and
thus one of the virtue of fasting.
