Priceless Ramadhaan

Two men, from a certain tribe came to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and accepted Islam. After some time, one of them went out in jihaad and was blessed with martyrdom, while the other lived on and passed away a normal death one year later. Sayyiduna Talhah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) thereafter saw a dream in which he was shown that the Sahaabi who had passed away a natural death had surpassed the one who had been martyred!

The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) expressed their surprise at this, to which Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “Did he not live one more year after him? (Did he not) see another Ramadhaan in which he fasted? (Did he not) perform so-many more sajdahs (salaah)?” When the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) replied in the affirmative, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The difference between them is greater than the distance between the sky and the earth!” (Sunan Ibnu Maajah #3925)

May Allah Ta‘ala bless us all with the true value of Ramadhaan and may He enable us to take maximum benefit from this blessed month.
