** Reserve a room this Ramadan **

The Prophet Mohammad PBUH said,

إِنَّ فِي الجَنَّةِ غُرَفًا تُرَى ظُهُورُهَا مِنْ بُطُونِهَا وَبُطُونُهَا مِنْ ظُهُورِهَا

“In paradise there are rooms, their outsides are visible from their insides, and their insides are visible from their outsides.”

An Arab Bedouin stood up and said, “Who do they belong to O messenger of Allah?”

He said,

لِمَنْ أَطَابَ الكَلاَمَ، وَأَطْعَمَ الطَّعَامَ، وَأَدَامَ الصِّيَامَ، وَصَلَّى بِاللَّيْلِ وَالنَّاسُ نِيَامٌ

“They are for those who are best in speech, who distribute food, who fast regularly and pray at night when people are asleep”

(Narrated by At-Tirmidhi)

So, it's only a four step reservation process. But here's what's interesting.

Imam Ibnu Rajab said,

وهـذه الخـصال كلـها تكـون فـي : [رمـضان] فـيجتمع فـيه للمـؤمن :- الصـيام والقـيام والصـدقة وطـيب الكـلام فإنـه ينـهى فيـه الصائـم عـن اللغـو والرفـث

“All of these traits are practised in Ramadan, as the believer fasts, prays at night, gives in charity and chooses the best of speech since he is prohibited from engaging in ill speech.”

Ramadan, however, is temporary training.

‘Eid onwards is the real test.

Start planning for tomorrow from today.
