The month of Ramadan is an opportunity for Muslims to increase their practice.

  15 Maret 2024 16:25 - The holy month of Ramadan is a joyful month for Muslims all over the world. On this occasion, all Muslims are required to fast.

The reason is, this month Allah SWT opens the door to forgiveness and repentance as much as possible for His people. In fact, Allah grants other wishes of His people, starting from safety, health, easy sustenance and many others.

Apart from that, Allah SWT also promises double rewards for anyone who wants to increase their good deeds during the month of Ramadan. Practice itself can be obtained in various ways, starting from carrying out the five daily prayers, giving alms, reading the Koran, dhikr, istighfar and others. Talking about praying to Allah SWT in the month of Ramadan, are there certain times? Actually praying can be done at any time, but if you want to be more solemn you can do it at the following times, as reported by from various sources, Friday (15/3).

Mustajab time in the month of Ramadan.

1. Pray at dawn.

Effective time


Sahur is done in the third part of the night, at this time the prayers you pray will be easily answered by Allah SWT. Before performing sahur, you can perform the tahajud prayer first and then pray. As in the Hadith of the History of Bukhari and Muslim, numbers 1145 and 758. From Abu Hurairah radhiyallahu anhu, the Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam said: "Our Rabb tabaraka wa taala descended to the sky world when the last third of the night remains.

Then Allah said, "Whoever prays to Me, I will grant it. Whoever asks Me, then I give. Whoever asks Me for forgiveness, then I will forgive." This prayer was granted by Allah SWT in a third of the night was also explained by Ibn Hajar. In the hadith above, Ibn Hajar said: "Prayers and istighfar at dawn are easily answered." (Fath Al-Bari, 3: 32).

2. When fasting.

Effective time


When you fast and pray, it will be the right time. The reason is that people who are fasting are advised to pray a lot in order to get goodness in this world and the hereafter.

In this case, Abu Hurairah radhiyallahu anhu said that the Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam once said: "Three people whose prayers are not rejected: the person who fasts until he breaks the fast, the just leader, and the prayers of the person who has been wronged." (HR. Ahmad 2: 305. Shaykh Syuaib Al Arnauth said that this hadith is authentic with various ways and reinforcements).

Imam Nawawi Rahimullah also explained this as follows: "It is Sunnah for those who fast to increase their prayers for the affairs of the afterlife and this world, and they can also pray for the wishes they desire, as well as don't forget to pray for goodness for Muslims in general." (Al- Majmu, 6: 273).

3. When breaking the fast.

Effective time


When breaking the fast, try to say a prayer. This is explained in the Hadith narrated by Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah, where Rasulullah shallallahu alaihi wa sallam said: "There are three people whose prayers are not rejected: (1) A just leader, (2) A person who fasts when he breaks his fast, (3) Prayer people who are wronged (HR. Tirmidhi no. 2526, 3598 and Ibnu Majah no. 1752.

Al-Hafizh Abu Thahir said that this hadith was hasan). Then in Tuhfah Al-Ahwadzi (7: 278) again explained this matter. "That Muslims who pray when breaking the fast will be easily granted by Allah, because that person has finished fulfilling "worship, namely in a state of submission and humbling oneself before Allah. This is what Allah likes, so that every prayer offered by his people in that state will be easily accepted by Allah."

4. When the call to prayer sounds.

Effective time


Of course, this is not only done during the month of Ramadan, other months are also the right time to pray. As is well known, when the call to prayer is heard, Muslims are advised to answer the call to prayer by saying the same pronunciation.

As in the Hadith narrated by Abu Daud, Rasulullah Shallallahualaihi Wasallam said: "Prayer is not rejected at two times, or at least there is little chance of being rejected. Namely when the call to prayer is heard and when the war is raging, when both sides attack each other (HR. Abu Daud, 2540, Ibnu Hajar Al Asqalani in Nata-ijul Afkar, 1/369, said: Hasan Sahih).
