Executive Summary

Approximately 200 hadiths on the key works of Ramadan: fasting, reciting Qur’an and giving in charity.

Course Summary

In this course, we have presented a vast body of hadiths pertaining to Ramadan in specific and those works specifically recommended to be done in Ramadan in general. The hadiths are all from Hafidh al-Mundhiri’s phenomenal work al-Targhib wa al-Tarhib — a collection of hadith to do with the practical and spiritual life a Muslim. The topics covered are Ramadan itself, praying, fasting, reciting the Qur’an and giving charity.

As one of the most blessed and active times of the year for Muslims, it only makes sense that at this time we should all take a look at the extensive, detailed and authentic prophetic teachings that have reached us about this blessed time and about the actions that we should be involved in during this time.

By taking this course we can really open our eyes to the works that we can all start doing in Ramadan, and how these deeds can become a new way of life for all of us in a practical and realistic way.
