What are the duties of Muslims in the holy Month of Ramadhan according to the Prophet of Islam (PBUH)? (Last part)


O’ people, the doors of heaven are open in this month (Ramadhan). Ask your God not close them on you, and the doors of hell are closed; ask Allah (SWT) not to open them on you. The Satans are in chains in this month. Ask God not to allow them to dominate you. Imam Ali (AS) said: At this moment I stood up and asked: O’ the Prophet of Allah (SWT), what is the most superior of deeds in this month (Ramadhan)? The Prophet (PBUH) replied: O’ Abul-Hassan, the most superior of deeds in this month is avoiding Harams.

Then the Prophet (PBUH) cried; I asked: What made you to cry? The Prophet (PBUH) replied: O’ dear Ali, I cry because in this month (Ramadhan) while you are performing Salaat/Salaah, your head will be cut by the most wretched person and your face and beard will be covered in blood. Amiral Momeneen Ali (AS) said: O’ the Prophet of Allah (SWT), is my faith healthy? The Prophet (PBUH) replied: Yes, your religion is totally healthy.

Then the Prophet (PBUH) added: O’ Ali, your killer and the one who gets angry with you, has got angry with me, and the one who insults you, has insulted me; you are to me like my own life, your soul is from my soul and your nature is from my nature, Allah (SWT) created and chose you and I; me for the prophethood and you for Imamate of the Islamic Ummah; and whoever denies your Imamate, in fact has denied my prophethood [1].
