Ramadan selections (4): Ramadan is a once in a lifetime opportunity


Ramadan is a once in a lifetime opportunity

Dear noble brothers, we are about to be given a once in a year opportunity when all our shortcomings, sins and religious violations will be erased (it is the month of Ramadan). 

Suppose that someone is in debt of  20.000.000 Lira, and he is unable to pay back  the   debt, so his house, shop and car are seized  and he is threatened to  go to jail. However, someone tells him, "if you do such and such thing for 30 days, all your debts will be forgotten", his situation will be incredible! In fact, this is how sins are erased in Ramadan. Here is the Hadith regarding this point:    

(Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "He who observes fasting during the month of Ramadan with Faith while seeking its reward from Allah, will have his past sins forgiven.")

[Al-Bukhari, Muslim, At-Tirmithi & An-Nas'i]
