The 8 Gates of Paradise... Ar-Rayyan (Thirst Quencher)

In Paradise there are eight gates; one of them is called Ar-Rayyan, and no one will enter it except those who fast. None else would enter along with them.

There is a door in Paradise called Rayyan. Only those who observe fasting can enter that door on doomsday, nobody else can enter with them.

Then, a voice is heard ‘Where are the ones who observed fasting in the world?’ They come and enter paradise from that door. When the last one of them enters, the door is closed; nobody else is permitted after that. Whoever enters Paradise from that door never gets thirsty again eternally"

It would be proclaimed:

Where are the people who fast that they should be admitted into it? And when the last of them would enter, it would be closed and no one would enter it.

When the first night of Ramadan comes, the doors of the skies are opened; none of them is closed until the last night of the Ramadan.

Of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH):

I will come to the gate of Paradise on the Day of Resurrection and will ask for it to be opened. The gatekeeper will say, "Who are you''

I will say "Muhammad.''

He will say, "I was told about you and that I was not to open the gate for anyone before you.''

Whoever spends a pair of something from his wealth for the sake of Allah, will be called from the gates of Paradise.

Of the 8 gates in Jannah (Paradise):

1.Baabus Salaah..those who were punctual in observing their salat

2.Baabul Jihad..those who participated in jihad

3.Baabus Sadaqah...those who frequently gave sadaqah
4.Baabur Rayyaan...the ones who constantly fasted
5.Baabul Hajj...those who observe their annual pilgrimage[hajj]
6.Baabul Kadhemean al- Gaidh...this door is reserved for those who suppress their anger and pardon others
7.Baabul Iman...this door is reserved for the entry of those who by virtue of their faith are saved from reckoning and chastisement.

8.Baabuz Dhikr...those who excessively remembered Allah.

Abu Bakr said,

`O Messenger of Allah, it does not matter from which gate one is called, but will anyone be called from all of them'

Onto which the prophet (PBUH)replied:

Yes, someone can be invited from all of the doors. O Abu Bakr, I hope you be one of those happy ones too.

Abu Bakr's question refers to a person who has all these good qualities: prayer, fasting, charity, jihad, and so on, so that he will be called from all the gates.

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

"Whoever spends a pair (of anything) for the sake of Allah will be called from all the eight gates of Paradise.The eight gates of Paradise will be opened to him, and he will enter it through any gate he wishes."

Of the Prophets Sunnah ways in Ramadan:

He was born on Monday, 12th Rabi Al Awwal, (April 22nd, 571 AC).He died in the evening of the twelfth of Rabi’ al-Awwal (June 8, 632 A.D.) at the age of sixty-three.

He used to break the fast before offering Al Maghreb Salah.

He would break his fast by having fresh ripe dates, if found. However, if he could not find any, he would break his fast on dried dates and if he could not find, he would drink few sips of water.

When he broke his fast, he used to say:

O my Allah, for Thee, I fast, and with the food Thou gives me I break the fast, and I rely on Thee.

اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ صُمْتُ وَ عَلَى رِزْقِكَ أَفْطَرْتُ وَ عَلَيْكَ تَوَكَّلْتُ

It was part of the Prophet's Sunnah during the month of Ramadan to increase the acts of worship during Ramadan. He used to pay charity frequently, recite the Qur'an, perform Salah, say Dhikr (Frequent mentioning of Allah), and observe I`tikaf .ie, going to the mosque frequently to worship.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) used to observe I`tikaf during the last ten days of Ramadan until he passed away. Once, he left it then he made it up in Shawwal.

He used to observe I`tikaf for ten days of each year and when it was the year in which he passed away, he observed I`tikaf for twenty days.

According to Islamic sources, there were several signs of the Prophet’s impending death. In the Ramadan before his death, the Prophet went and meditated for twenty days instead of his usual ten.

Immediately following the conquest of Khaibar, a Jewish woman prepared a dinner for Muhammad and some of his men. Unknown to the Muslims was that she had put a poison into the lamb (some say goat) that was served at dinner. Muhammad ate some of the poisoned lamb and died as a result three years later.

"The Prophet died on Monday and was buried on the night of Wednesday.", during what would become the farewell Hajj,

he said,

I do not know whether I will ever meet you at this place once again after this current year.

It is said that the Prophet’s last words were,

O Allah, with the supreme companions.

and:

O my Allah, for Thee, I fast, and with the food Thou gives me I break the fast, and I rely on Thee.

اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ صُمْتُ وَ عَلَى رِزْقِكَ أَفْطَرْتُ وَ عَلَيْكَ تَوَكَّلْتُ
