بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيم

In the Name of Allah, the Infinitely Compassionate, the Most Merciful.

شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِيَ أُنزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنُ هُدًى لِّلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَاتٍ مِّنَ الْهُدَى وَالْفُرْقَانِ فَمَن شَهِدَ مِنكُمُ الشَّهْرَ فَلْيَصُمْهُ وَمَن كَانَ مَرِيضًا أَوْ عَلَى سَفَرٍ فَعِدَّةٌ مِّنْ أَيَّامٍ أُخَرَ يُرِيدُ اللّهُ بِكُمُ الْيُسْرَ وَلاَ يُرِيدُ بِكُمُ الْعُسْرَ وَلِتُكْمِلُواْ الْعِدَّةَ وَلِتُكَبِّرُواْ اللّهَ عَلَى مَا هَدَاكُمْ وَلَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ

The month of Ramadan that wherein the Qur’an was sent down to be a guidance for mankind, and as clear signs of guidance and a criterion (between right and wrong). Therefore, whoever of you is present (at his home) during the month, he shall fast therein and whoever is sick or on a journey, he shall then (fast) the same number of other days; Allah desires ease for you, and He does not desire hardship for you; so you should complete the number (of days decreed), and exalt Allah for His having guided you, and that haply you might be grateful (to Him). Quran, al-Baqarah: 185

Zakat Al-Fitr

Zakat al-Fitrah is a special form of obligatory Zakat given at the end of the month of Ramadhan, during the day of Eid. The estimated minimum value of Zakat al-Fitrah, in the United States, is US $10.00 per eligible person. A sum must be paid on a person’s behalf as well as on behalf of all those who are his dependents. This would also include any guests who are staying overnight during the eve of Eid al-Fitr, under the care of the person. A family of 4, for example, who also has 2 guests staying overnight during the eve of Eid al-Fitr would pay 6 times the Zakat, for a total of US $60.00, to account for each family member and guest.

Please note, if a center or person knows of someone needy in their city, as an obligatory precaution, it is not religiously allowed to send the Zakat al-Fitrah to feed the poor outside of that city. [Reference: Minhajul-Saliheen, Book 1, page 383. Year 2001. Mas’ala #1182].

Ramadan Duas

With Arabic & English Text

Praise belongs to God who guided us to His praise
الْحَمْدُ للهِ الَّذِي هَدَانَا لِحَمْدِهِ
and placed us among the people of praise, that we might be among the thankful for His beneficence
وَجَعَلَنَا مِنْ أَهْلِهِ لِنَكُونَ لإحْسَانِهِ مِنَ الشَّاكِرِينَ
and that He might recompense us for that with the recompense of the good-doers!
وَلِيَجْزِيَنَا عَلَى ذلِكَ جَزَآءَ الْمُحْسِنِينَ
And praise belongs to God who showed favour to us through His religion,
وَالْحَمْدُ للهِ الَّذِي حَبَانَا بِدِينِهِ
singled us out for His creed, and directed us onto the roads of His beneficence,
وَاخْتَصَّنَا بِمِلَّتِهِ وَسَبَّلَنَا فِي سُبُلِ إحْسَانِهِ
in order that through His kindness we might travel upon them to His good pleasure,
لِنَسْلُكَهَا بِمَنِّهِ إلَى رِضْوَانِهِ
a praise which He will accept from us and through which He will be pleased with us!
حَمْدَاً يَتَقَبَّلُهُ مِنَّا وَيَرْضَى بِهِ عَنَّا
And praise belongs to God who appointed among those roads His month, the month of Ramadan,
وَالْحَمْدُ لِلّه الَّذِي جَعَلَ مِنْ تِلْكَ السُّبُلِ شَهْرَهُ شَهْرَ رَمَضَانَ
the month of fasting, the month of submission, the month of purity,
شَهْرَ الصِّيَامِ وَشَهْرَ الإِسْلاَم وَشَهْرَ الطَّهُورِ
the month of putting to test, the month of standing in prayer,
وَشَهْرَ التَّمْحِيْصِ وَشَهْرَ الْقِيَامِ
“in which the Qur’an was sent down as guidance to the people,
الَّذِي أُنْزِلَ فِيْهِ الْقُرْآنُ هُدىً لِلنَّاسِ
and as clear signs of the Guidance and the Separator” (2:185)!
وَبَيِّنَات مِنَ الْهُدى وَالْفُرْقَانِ
He clarified its excellence over other months
فَأَبَانَ فَضِيْلَتَهُ عَلَى سَائِرِ الشُّهُورِ
by the many sacred things and well-known excellencies which He placed therein,
بِمَا جَعَلَ لَهُ مِنَ الْحُرُمَاتِ الْمَوْفُورَةِ وَالْفَضَائِلِ الْمَشْهُورَةِ
for He made unlawful in it what He declared lawful in others to magnify it,
فَحَرَّمَ فِيْهِ ما أَحَلَّ فِي غَيْرِهِ إعْظَاماً
He prohibited foods and drinks in it to honour it,
وَحَجَرَ فِيْهِ الْمَطَاعِمَ وَالْمَشَارِبَ إكْرَاماً
and He appointed for it a clear time which He (majestic and mighty is He) allows not to be set forward
وَجَعَلَ لَهُ وَقْتاً بَيِّناً لاَ يُجِيزُ جَلَّ وَعَزَّ أَنْ يُقَدَّمَ قَبْلَهُ
and accepts not to be placed behind
وَلا يَقْبَـلُ أَنْ يُؤَخَّرَ عَنْهُ
Then He made one of its nights surpass the nights of a thousand months
ثُمَّ فَضَّلَ لَيْلَةً وَاحِدَةً مِنْ لَيَالِيهِ عَلَى لَيَالِي أَلْفِ شَهْر
and named it the Night of Decree;
وَسَمَّاهَا لَيْلَةَ الْقَدْرِ
“in it the angels and the Spirit descend by the leave of their Lord upon every command,
تَنَزَّلُ الْمَلائِكَةُ وَالرُّوحُ فِيهَا بِإذْنِ رَبِّهِمْ مِنْ كُلِّ أَمْر
a peace” (97:4-5) constant in blessings until the rising of the dawn
سَلاَمٌ دَائِمُ الْبَرَكَةِ إلَى طُلُوعِ الْفَجْرِ
upon whomsoever He will of His servants according to the decision He has made firm
عَلَى مَنْ يَشَاءُ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ بِمَا أَحْكَمَ مِنْ قَضَائِهِ
O God, bless Muhammad and his Household,
اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
inspire us with knowledge of its excellence, veneration of its inviolability,
وَأَلْهِمْنَا مَعْرِفَةَ فَضْلِهِ وَإِجْلاَلَ حُرْمَتِهِ
and caution against what Thou hast forbidden within it,
وَالتَّحَفُّظَ مِمَّا حَظَرْتَ فِيهِ
and help us to fast in it by our restraining our limbs from acts of disobedience toward Thee
وَأَعِنَّـا عَلَى صِيَامِـهِ بِكَفِّ الْجَـوَارِحِ عَنْ مَعَاصِيْكَ
and our employing them in that which pleases Thee,
وَاسْتِعْمَالِهَا فِيهِ بِمَا يُرْضِيْكَ
so that we lend not our ears to idle talk
حَتَّى لاَ نُصْغِىَ بِأَسْمَاعِنَا إلَى لَغْو
and hurry not with our eyes to diversion,
وَلا نُسْرِعَ بِأَبْصَارِنَا إلَى لَهْو
we stretch not our hands toward the forbidden
وَحَتَّى لاَ نَبْسُطَ أَيْدِيَنَا إلَى مَحْظُور
and stride not with our feet toward the prohibited,
وَلاَ نَخْطُوَ بِأَقْدَامِنَا إلَى مَحْجُور
our bellies hold only what Thou hast made lawful
وَحَتَّى لاَ تَعِيَ بُطُونُنَا إلاَّ مَا أَحْلَلْتَ
and our tongues speak only what Thou hast exemplified,
وَلا تَنْطِقَ أَلْسِنَتُنَا إلاَّ بِمَا مَثَّلْتَ
we undertake nothing but what brings close to Thy reward
وَلا نَتَكَلَّفَ إلاَّ ما يُدْنِي مِنْ ثَوَابِكَ
and pursue nothing but what protects from Thy punishment!
وَلاَ نَتَعَاطَى إلاّ الَّذِي يَقِيْ مِنْ عِقَابِكَ
Then rid all of that from the false show of the false showers and the fame seeking of the fame seekers,
ثُمَّ خَلِّصْ ذَلِكَ كُلَّهُ مِنْ رِئآءِ الْمُرَائِينَ وَسُمْعَةِ الْمُسْمِعِينَ
lest we associate therein anything with Thee
لاَ نَشْرَكُ فِيهِ أَحَداً دُونَكَ
or seek therein any object of desire but Thee!
وَلا نَبْتَغِيْ فِيهِ مُرَاداً سِوَاكَ
O God, bless Muhammad and his Household,
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
in it make us attend to the appointed moments
وَقِفْنَـا فِيْـهِ عَلَى مَـوَاقِيْتِ
of the five prayers within the bounds Thou hast set,
الصَّلَوَاتِ الْخَمْس بِحُدُودِهَا الَّتِي حَدَّدْتَ
the obligations Thou hast decreed, the duties Thou hast assigned,
وَفُرُوضِهَا الَّتِي فَرَضْتَ وَوَظَائِفِهَا الَّتِي وَظَّفْتَ
and the times Thou hast specified;
وَأَوْقَاتِهَا الَّتِي وَقَّتَّ
and in the prayers make us alight in the station of the keepers of their stations,
وَأَنْزِلْنَا فِيهَا مَنْزِلَةَ الْمُصِيْبينَ لِمَنَازِلِهَا
the guardians of their pillars, their performers in their times,
الْحَافِظِينَ لاِرْكَانِهَا الْمُؤَدِّينَ لَهَـا
as Thy servant and Thy messenger set down in his Sunna (Thy blessings be upon him and his Household)
فِي أَوْقَاتِهَـا عَلَى مَا سَنَّـهُ عَبْدُكَ وَرَسُـولُكَ صَلَوَاتُـكَ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِـهِ
in their bowings, their prostrations, and all their excellent acts,
فِي رُكُوعِهَا وَسُجُودِهَا وَجَمِيْعِ فَوَاضِلِهَا
with the most complete and ample ritual purity and the most evident and intense humility!
عَلى أَتَمِّ الطَّهُورِ وَأَسْبَغِهِ وَأَبْيَنِ الْخُشُوعِ وَأَبْلَغِهِ
Give us success in this month to tighten our bonds of kin with devotion and gifts,
وَوَفِّقْنَا فِيهِ لاِنْ نَصِلَ أَرْحَامَنَا بِالبِرِّ وَالصِّلَةِ
attend to our neighbours with bestowal and giving,
وَأَنْ نَتَعَاهَدَ جِيرَانَنَابِالاِفْضَالِ وَالْعَطِيَّةِ
rid our possessions from claims,
وَأَنْ نُخَلِّصَ أَمْوَالَنَا مِنَ التَّبِعَاتِ
purify them through paying the alms,
وَأَنْ نُطَهِّرَهَا بِإخْرَاجِ الزَّكَوَاتِ
go back to him who has gone far from us,
وَأَنْ نُرَاجِعَ مَنْ هَاجَرَنَـا
treat justly him who has wronged us,
وَأَنْ نُنْصِفَ مَنْ ظَلَمَنَا
make peace with him who shows enmity toward us
وَأَنْ نُسَـالِمَ مَنْ عَادَانَا
(except him who is regarded as an enemy in Thee and for Thee,
حَاشَا مَنْ عُودِيَ فِيْكَ وَلَكَ
for he is the enemy whom we will not befriend,
فَإنَّهُ الْعَدُوُّ الَّذِي لاَ نُوالِيهِ
the party whom we will not hold dear),
وَالحِزْبُ الَّذِي لاَ نُصَافِيهِ
and seek nearness to Thee through blameless works which will purify us from sins
وَأَنْ نَتَقَرَّبَ إلَيْكَ فِيْهِ مِنَ الأَعْمَالِ الزَّاكِيَةِ بِمَا تُطَهِّرُنا بِهِ مِنَ الذُّنُوبِ
and preserve us from renewing faults,
وَتَعْصِمُنَا فِيهِ مِمَّا نَسْتَأنِفُ مِنَ الْعُيُوبِ
so that none of Thy angels will bring for Thee
حَتَّى لا يُورِدَ عَلَيْكَ أَحَدٌ مِنْ مَلاَئِكَتِكَ
the kinds of obedience and sorts of nearness-seeking unless they be less than what we bring!
إلاّ دُونَ مَا نُورِدُ مِنْ أَبْوابِ الطَّاعَةِ لَكَ وَأَنْوَاعِ القُرْبَةِ إلَيْكَ
O God, I ask Thee by the right of this month
أللَّهُمَّ إنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ بِحَقِّ هَذَا الشَّهْرِ
and by the right of him who worships Thee within it
وَبِحَقِّ مَنْ تَعَبَّدَ لَكَ فِيهِ
from its beginning to the time of its passing,
مِنِ ابْتِدَائِهِ إلَى وَقْتِ فَنَائِهِ
whether angel Thou hast brought nigh to Thee, prophet Thou hast sent,
مِنْ مَلَك قَرَّبْتَهُ أَوْ نَبِيٍّ أَرْسَلْتَهُ
or righteous servant Thou hast singled out,
أَوْ عَبْد صَالِح اخْتَصَصْتَهُ
that Thou bless Muhammad and his Household,
أَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
make us worthy of the generosity Thou hast promised Thy friends,
وَأَهِّلْنَا فِيهِ لِمَا وَعَدْتَ أَوْلِياءَكَ مِنْ كَرَامَتِكَ
make incumbent for us what Thou hast made incumbent for those who go to great lengths in obeying Thee,
وَأَوْجِبْ لَنَا فِيهِ مَا أَوْجَبْتَ لأِهْلِ الْمُبَالَغَةِ فِي طَاعَتِكَ
and place us in the ranks of those who deserve through Thy mercy the highest elevation!
وَاجْعَلْنَا فِي نَظْمِ مَنِ اسْتَحَقَّ الرَّفِيْعَ الأعْلَى بِرَحْمَتِكَ
O God, bless Muhammad and his Household,
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
turn us aside from deviation in professing Thy Unity, falling short in magnifying Thee,
وَجَنِّبْنَا الإلْحَادَ فِي تَوْحِيدِكَ وَالتَّقْصِيرَ فِي تَمْجِيدِكَ
uncertainty in Thy religion, blindness toward Thy path, heedlessness of Thy inviolability,
وَالشَّكَّ فِي دِينِـكَ وَالْعَمَى عَنْ سَبِيْلِكَ وَالاغْفَالَ لِحُرْمَتِكَ
and being deceived by Thy enemy, the accursed Satan!

O God, bless Muhammad and his Household,
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
and when in every night of this month’s nights
وَإذَا كَانَ لَكَ فِيْ كُلِّ لَيْلَة مِنْ لَيَالِيْ شَهْرِنَا هَذَا
Thou hast necks which Thy pardon will release and Thy forgiveness disregard,
رِقَابٌ يُعْتِقُهَا عَفْوُكَ أَوْ يَهَبُهَا صَفْحُكَ
place our necks among those necks
فَاجْعَلْ رِقَابَنَا مِنْ تِلْكَ الرِّقَابِ
and place us among the best folk and companions of this our month!
وَاجْعَلْنَا لِشَهْرِنَا مِنْ خَيْرِ أَهْل وَأَصْحَاب
O God, bless Muhammad and his Household,
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
efface our sins along with the effacing of its crescent moon,
وَامْحَقْ ذُنُوبَنَا مَعَ امِّحاقِ هِلاَلِهِ
and make us pass forth from the ill effects of our acts with the passing of its days,
وَاسْلَخْ عَنَّا تَبِعَاتِنَا مَعَ انْسِلاَخِ أَيَّامِهِ
until it leaves us behind, while within it Thou hast purified us of offenses
حَتَّى يَنْقَضِي عَنَّا وَقَدْ صَفَّيْتَنَا فِيهِ مِنَ الْخَطِيئاتِ
and rid us of evil deeds!
وَأَخْلَصْتَنَا فِيهِ مِنَ السَّيِّئاتِ
O God, bless Muhammad and his Household,
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
and should we go off to one side in this month, set us aright; should we swerve, point us straight;
وَإنْ مِلْنَا فِيهِ فَعَدِّلْنا وَإنْ زِغْنَا فِيهِ فَقَوِّمْنَا
and should Thy enemy Satan enwrap us, rescue us from him!
وَإنِ اشْتَمَلَ عَلَيْنَا عَدُوُّكَ الشَّيْطَانُ فَاسْتَنْقِذْنَا مِنْهُ
O God, fill this month with our worship of Thee,
أللَهُمَّ اشْحَنْهُ بِعِبَادَتِنَا إيَّاكَ
adorn its times with our obedience toward Thee,
وَزَيِّنْ أَوْقَاتَهُ بِطَاعَتِنَا لَكَ
help us during its daytime with its fast,
وَأَعِنَّا فِي نَهَـارِهِ عَلَى صِيَـامِـهِ
and in its night with prayer
وَفِي لَيْلِهِ عَلَى الصَّـلاَةِ
and pleading toward Thee, humility toward Thee,
وَالتَّضَرُّعِ إلَيْكَ وَالخُشُوعِ لَكَ
and lowliness before Thee,
وَالذِّلَّةِ بَيْنَ يَدَيْكَ
so that its daytime may not bear witness against our heedlessness, nor its night against our neglect!
حَتَّى لا يَشْهَدَ نَهَارُهُ عَلَيْنَا بِغَفْلَة وَلا لَيْلُهُ بِتَفْرِيط
O God, make us like this in the other months and days as long as Thou givest us life,
أللَّهُمَّ وَاجْعَلْنَا فِي سَائِرِ الشُّهُورِ وَالأَيَّامِ كَذَلِكَ مَا عَمَّرْتَنَا
and place us among Thy righteous servants,
وَاجْعَلْنَا مِنْ عِبَادِكَ الصَّالِحِينَ
“those who shall inherit Paradise, therein dwelling forever” (23:11),
الَّذِينَ يَرِثُونَ الْفِرْدَوْسَ هُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ
“those who give what they give, while their hearts quake,
وَالَّذِينَ يُؤْتُونَ مَا آتَوْا وَقُلُوبُهُمْ

وَجِلَةٌ أَنَّهُمْ إلَى رَبِّهِمْ رَاجِعُـونَ
those who “vie in good works, outracing to them” (23:61)!
وَمِنَ الَّذِينَ يُسَارِعُونَ فِي الْخَيْرَاتِ وَهُمْ لَهَا سَابِقُونَ
O God, bless Muhammad and his Household
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
in every time, in all moments, and in every state,
فِي كُلِّ وَقْت وَكُلِّ أَوَان وَعَلَى كُـلِّ حَال
to the number that Thou hast blessed whomsoever Thou hast blessed
عَـدَدَ مَا صَلَّيْتَ عَلَى مَنْ صَلَّيْتَ عَلَيْهِ
and to multiples of all that, through multiples
وَأَضْعَافَ ذَلِكَ كُلِّهِ بِالاضْعافِ
which none can count but Thee!
الَّتِي لا يُحْصِيهَا غَيْرُكَ
Surely Thou art Accomplisher of what Thou desirest
إنَّكَ فَعَّالٌ لِمَا تُرِيدُ

When your eyes fall on the new moon, you must not point to it; rather you should turn yourself towards the kiblah, raise both your hands towards the sky, and address the new moon with the following words:

رَبّي وَرَبّكَ اللّهُ رَبّ العَالَمِينَ

Your and my Lord is Allah; the Lord of the worlds

 Allahumma Ahillahu Alayna
اللّهُمّ أَهِلّهُ عَلَيْنَا

Allahumma Qad Hazara 
اللّهُمّ قَدْ حَضَر

Imam Ja`far Sadiq (as) is also reported to have said: When you see the new moon of Ramadhan, you may say the following:

اللّهُمّ قَدْ حَضَرَ شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ

O Allah: the month of Rama¤¡n has commenced,

وَقَدِ افْتَرضْتَ عَلَيْنَا صِيَامَهُ

And You have made obligatory upon us to observe fasting during it,

وَأَنْزَلْتَ فِيهِ القُرْآنَ

And You revealed the Qur’¡n in it,

هُدَىً لِلنَّاسِ وَبَيّنَاتٍ مِنَ الهُدَى وَالفُرْقَانِ

As guidance for people and clear proofs of true guidance and distinction (between the right and the wrong)

اللّهُمّ أَعِنَّا عَلَى صِيَامِهِ

illuminates jet-black shadows by you,

He Who has been always there before all things,
ثُمّ خَلَقَ كُلّ شَيْءٍ
And He then created all things,
ثُمّ يَبْقَى وَيَفْنَى كُلّ شَيْءٍ
And He then stays while all things vanish.
يَا ذَا الّذِي لَيْسَ كَمِثْلِهِ شَيْءٌ

لَكَ الحَمْدُ حَمْداً لا يَقْوَى عَلَى إحْصَائِهِ إلاَّ أَنْتَ
To You be the praise that none can count save You,
فَصَلّ عَلَى مُحَمّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمّدٍ صَلاةً لا يَقْوَى عَلَى إحْصَائِهَا إلاَّ أَنْتَ.
So, please bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad with the blessings that none can count save You.

Ya Aliyu Ya Azeem
يَا عَلِيُّ يَا عَظِيمُ 

O the Most High; O the All-great;
يَا عَلِيُّ يَا عَظِيمُ
O the All-forgiving; O the All-merciful
يَا غَفُورُ يَا رَحِيمُ
You are the All-great Lord
 أَنْتَ الرَّبُّ الْعَظِيمُ
Like Whom there is nothing
الَّذِي لَيْسَ كَمِثْلِهِ شَيْءٌ
and He is the All-hearing, the All-aware;
وَهُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْبَصِيرُ
and this is a month that You have glorified and ennbled,
وَهذَا شَهْرٌ عَظَّمْتَهُ وَكَرَّمْتَهُ
and honored and preferred to the other months,
وَشَرَّفْتَهُ وَفَضَّلْتَهُ عَلَى الشُّهُورِ
it is the month that You imposed upon me to observe fasting in it,
وَهُوَ الشَّهْرُ الَّذِي فَرَضْتَ صِيَامَهُ عَلَيَّ
it is the month of Rama¤¡n during which You revealed the Qur’n
وَهُوَ شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِي أَنْزَلْتَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنَ
as guidance for people and clear proofs on true guidance and distinction (between the right and the wrong);
هُدَىً لِلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَاتٍ مِنَ الْهُدَى وَالْفُرْقَانِ
and You decided the Grand Night to be in it,
وَجَعَلْتَ فِيهِ لَيْلَةَ الْقَدْرِ
and You have decided it to be more favorable that one thousand months
وَجَعَلْتَهَا خَيْراً مِنْ أَلْفِ شَهْرٍ
So, O the Lord of graces; and none can ever do favor to You;
فَيَا ذَا الْمَنِّ وَلا يُمَنُّ عَلَيْكَ
Please do me a favor by releasing me from the Fire and by including me with those to whom You do this favor,
مُنَّ عَلَيَّ بِفَكَاكِ رَقَبَتِي مِنَ النَّارِ فِي مَنْ تَمُنُّ عَلَيْهِ
and allow me to enter Paradise;
وَأَدْخِلْنِي الْجَنَّةَ
on account of Your mercy; O the most Merciful of all those who show mercy
بِرَحْمَتِكَ يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ
