Q&A: The Three Phases of Ramadhaan

Q. Could you please give me the breakdown of the three sections of Ramadhaan – what happens, who is forgiven, who is not, Night of Power – Laylatul Qadr, etc.?

A. Rasoolullah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said that the first part of Ramadhaan – the first ten days – are Days of Allah Ta’ala’s Rahmah. In other words the Rahmat of Allah Ta’ala descends in profusion during these ten opening days and for this reason we find that abstaining from food and drink and standing for long periods in Taraaweeh Salaat are akin to habitual practices for us, whereas prior to Ramadhaan going without food and drink and standing for Twenty Rakaats Salaat after Isha were inconceivable. The lesson for us to learn from these first ten days is to resign ourselves to the Will of Allah Ta’ala and inculcate Rahmat (mercy, pity and compassion) and distribute this Rahmat to everyone.

The Second Ten Days are described as Days of Maghfirah as Allah Ta’ala forgives in abundance during these Ten Days. The middle ten days are the most difficult. If the bandah (servant of Allah) remains resolute and continues his/her Ramadhaan Ibaadaat with sincerity and constancy then Allah Ta’ala forgives the sins of these devoted servants of His. Just as Allah Ta’ala is forgiving during these middle days of Ramadhaan, we too, should be forgiving, accommodating and overlooking the mistakes and wrongs of others.

The Last Ten Days are described in the Hadeeth of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) as Freedom from Hellfire. It is the ultimate glad tiding. With happiness and joy we should engage in Allah Ta’ala’s Ibaadat and Taa’at with Salaat, Tilaawat, Saum, Sadaqah and virtuous character knowing and believing that Allah Ta’ala has announced our freedom from the awful abode of the Fire.

وعن أمير المؤمنين أبي حفص عمر بن الخطاب بن نفيل بن عبد العزى بن رياح بن قرط بن رزاح بن عدى بن لؤى ابن غالب القرشى العدوى‏.‏ رضي الله عنه، قال‏:‏ سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول‏:‏ ‏ "‏ إنما الأعمال بالنيات، وإنما لكل امرىء ما نوى فمن كانت هجرته إلى الله ورسوله فهجرته إلى الله ورسوله، ومن كانت هجرته لدنيا يصيبها، أو امرأة ينكحها فهجرته إلى ما هاجر إليه‏"‏ ‏(‏‏(‏متفق على صحته‏.‏ رواه إماما المحدثين‏:‏ أبو الحسين مسلم بن الحجاج بن مسلم القشيرى النيسابورى رضي الله عنهما في صحيحهما اللذين هما أصح الكتب المصنفة‏)‏‏)‏‏.‏

Narrated 'Umar bin Al-Khattab Radiallahu Anhu reported:

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said, "The deeds are considered by the intentions, and a person will get the reward according to his intention. So whoever emigrated for Allah and His Messenger, his emigration will be for Allah and His Messenger; and whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration would be for what he emigrated for".
