Hazrath Abdullah bin Mas’ud (R.A.) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “The person who will be nearest to me on the Day of Judgement is the one who recited the most durood upon me.” (Tirmizi)

A company promises its employees a triple bonus, based on the production. Undoubtedly every employee will eagerly work overtime to meet the production target so that he may receive the triple bonus. Whatever he earns for the month, he will want to receive an extra cheque for three times that amount at the end of the year. For this he will slog as hard as he can.

The month of Ramadhaan is super bonus time. Every fardh (compulsory) action performed is rewarded with a bonus of 70 times the normal reward. For every nafil (optional) action, one is granted a reward equivalent to a fardh action. The latter reward must be understood in context. For instance, tahajjud Salaah (performed in the last part of the night) is an extremely great nafil ibadah. The rewards are tremendous. However, a lifetime of tahajjud cannot equal the reward of one day’s fajr Salaah. Yet in the month of Ramadhaan Allah Ta'ala grants a reward equivalent to a fardh action for every nafil action performed. It could therefore be safely said that one tahajjud Salaah in the month of Ramadhaan is worth more than a lifetime of tahajjud at other times!!! The same applies for every other nafil action such as recitation of the Qur'an, zikr, recitation of Durood Shareef, etc. Therefore, maximum effort should be made in this Mubaarak month to acquire these multiplied rewards.

Hereunder are the virtues for some nafil Salaah which one should endeavour to perform, especially in Ramadhaan..

Summary of Letter:

باسمه تعالى
Respected Mufti Saheb
السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

My heart has become very hard. It just would not melt with the rememberance or the fear of Allah Ta`ala. Please advise as to how I should soften my heart.
 
Furthermore, with the grace of Allah Ta`ala and through the barkat (blessing) of being linked to yourself, I have been blessed with the tawfeeq (ability) of quickly repenting from my sins. The problem is that to remain steadfast on tauba (and not repeat the sin) is among the most difficult things for me. Please help me to overcome these maladies.
