Sixty Thousand Sinners Forgiven Every Night in Ramadan

Sayyiduna Abdullah Ibn Masud (Radi Allahu Anhu) has narrated that the Beloved and Blessed Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) has stated,

"At every night of Ramadan, an announcement is made in the skies till dawn, ‘O seeker of goodness! Complete (i.e. keep worshipping Allah) and rejoice, and O evil one! Give up your evil and take some lesson. Is there any seeker of forgiveness, his desire will be fulfilled? Is there anyone repenting, his repentance will be accepted? Is there anyone making Dua, his Dua will be accepted? Is there anyone who seeks anything, he will be bestowed what he wishes for?’ Each evening of Ramadan at the time of sunset, Allah Almighty frees sixty thousand sinners from Hell, and on the day of Eid, He forgives as many people as the total number of those who were freed throughout the month."

Allah's Name (we) begin with, The Compassionate Most Merciful

As Salaatu Was Salaamu Alaika Ya Rasool'Allah
صلٰى الله عليه و سلم

Tomorrow here in Durban, South Africa marks the 29th Day of Sha'baan. In sha Allah if the moon of Ramadaan is sighted and the proper Shahaadat (testimony) is received as per the stipulations of Shariah, we will commence Ramadaan on Thursday, if not we will complete the counting of 30, as per the Hadith of Rasoolullah Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam and the injunction of Shariah. We should attempt to follow the strict rule of Shariah in this, just as we are commanded to do so in all other issues of our Ibaadat. We should abstain from following the ways that have been implemented contrary to the Shariah, and especially from pre-set dates for Ramadaan. Allah bless us all with following the Shariah and protect us from following our desire. Aameen

It is in Sahih Bukhari and Muslim from Ibn Umar Radi Allahu anhu that Rasoolullah Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam said, ‘Do not commence fasting unless you have seen the new moon, and do not make Iftaar (i.e. Do not end your fasts and make Eid) unless you have seen the new moon, and if it is cloudy, then complete the counting.’

It is also reported in Sahihain from Hazrat Abu Hurairah Radi Allahu anhu that Rasoolullah Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam said, ‘Commence fasting by sighting the moon and end fasting by sighting the moon, and if it is cloudy, then complete the counting of 30 for Sha’baan.’

Important Law:  On the evening of the 29th of Sha’baan, one should look for the moon (of Ramadaan).  If it is seen, then one should keep fast on the following day, otherwise one should complete 30 days of Sha’baan and then commence the month of Ramadaan.  [Alamgiri]

Please go out in your numbers and make a sincere and dedicated effort to sight the moon. Hold firmly to this Sunnah of the Beloved Rasool Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam. It is mentioned in the Hadith that, one who holds firmly to a  Sunnah of Rasoolullah Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam in times of strife, will receive the reward of 100 Shaheeds (Martyrs).
