How Should Your Prayer Be In Ramadan
Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, encouraged standing for night prayer in the month of Ramadan, without imposing it on them. The Prophet would say, “Whoever stands in prayer during Ramadan due to faith and seeking reward, his previous sins will be forgiven.” After the Prophet passed away the matter continued like that, then continued like that during the Caliphate of Abu Bakr and in the early part of the Caliphate of Umar.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic Calendar and is observed by Muslims globally. It is a month of Fasting to honor the first revelation of Quran on Muhammad (PBUH). It is a month of worship, spirituality and increased and improved dedication. Ramadan teaches Muslims how to exercise self-discipline and self-possession. It also strengthens our knowledge in Quran and makes us more philanthropic.
Sayyeditna Ayesha [RA] also narrated that:
“The Prophet (PBUH) offered Salah in the mosque and many people prayed with Him. The next day He did the same and more people prayed with Him. The the people gathered on the third night but, the Prophet (PBUH) did not come out to them. In the morning, He said to them: ‘Surely I saw what you did, and nothing prevented Me from coming out to you, save that I feared that (that prayer) would be made obligatory upon you.’ And that was during Ramadan.”
