Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) writes:

The mubaarak month of Ramadhaan is a very great blessing and favour of Allah Ta’ala for the Muslims. However, the full blessing of this favour will be reaped by valuing it and appreciating it. Otherwise Ramadhaan will come and go without us gaining anything. (Fazaail-e-A’amaal [urdu], Fazaail-e-Ramadhaan pg. 2)
