It’s Coming…

Ramadan 2

حَدَّثَنَا ‏ ‏أَبُو كُرَيْبٍ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْعَلَاءِ بْنِ كُرَيْبٍ ‏ ‏حَدَّثَنَا ‏ ‏أَبُو بَكْرِ بْنُ عَيَّاشٍ ‏ ‏عَنْ ‏ ‏الْأَعْمَشِ ‏ ‏عَنْ ‏ ‏أَبِي صَالِحٍ ‏ ‏عَنْ ‏ ‏أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ ‏ ‏قَالَ ‏
قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ‏ ‏صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ‏ ‏إِذَا كَانَ أَوَّلُ لَيْلَةٍ مِنْ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ ‏ ‏صُفِّدَتْ ‏ ‏الشَّيَاطِينُ ‏ ‏وَمَرَدَةُ ‏ ‏الْجِنِّ وَغُلِّقَتْ أَبْوَابُ النَّارِ فَلَمْ يُفْتَحْ مِنْهَا بَابٌ وَفُتِّحَتْ أَبْوَابُ الْجَنَّةِ فَلَمْ يُغْلَقْ مِنْهَا بَابٌ ‏ ‏وَيُنَادِي مُنَادٍ يَا ‏ ‏بَاغِيَ ‏ ‏الْخَيْرِ أَقْبِلْ وَيَا ‏ ‏بَاغِيَ ‏ ‏الشَّرِّ ‏ ‏أَقْصِرْ ‏ ‏وَلِلَّهِ عُتَقَاءُ مِنْ النَّارِ وَذَلكَ كُلُّ لَيْلَةٍ

Abu-Hurayrah said, “The Messenger of God, peace and blessings of God be upon him, said, ‘When it is the first night of the month of Ramadān, the devils and those jinn who are devoted exclusively to evil are chained. The gates of the Fire are firmly locked, such that none remains open; and the gates of Paradise are flung open, such that none remains closed. A caller proclaims, “Seeker of good, advance! Seeker of evil, desist!” Allah has people whom He frees from the Fire; and that happens every night [of the month] (1).'”

(1): Alternatively, the phrase “and that happens every night [of the month]” could also be inclusive of the proclamation of the caller.

(Sunan al-Tirmidhi)
