Ramadan: Quran & Spending (Hadith No. 1621)

Volume 3, Book 31, Number 126:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu):
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was the most generous amongst the people, and he used to be more so in the month of Ramadan when Gabriel (`alayhissalaam) visited him, and Gabriel (`alayhissalaam) used to meet him on every night of Ramadan till the end of the month. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) used to recite the Holy Qur'an to Gabriel, and when Gabriel (`alayhissalaam) met him, he used to be more generous than a fast wind (which causes rain and welfare).
  1. The sunnah is to go through the whole Quran in Ramadan. It's the best time of the year. You can do it!
    Join online classes if there's no other means.
  2. Spend generously in the cause of Allah. Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was more generous than 'fast wind' - meaning he would spend a lot and he would spend of whatever he had as soon as he got it.. no delays. And his spending was such that it would benefit others - the poor and the needy.
