15 Common Errors Committed by Muslims in the Holy Month of Ramadan?

Today I am going to post 15 common mistakes which every Muslim committed in the month of Ramadan so make sure you share them with your family and friends so they can realize their mistake.

(1). Many people they skip the sahoor.

(2). Some people have an early sahoor i.e. they have the sahoor one or two hours before the fajar time. Infact sahoor is a blessing, every muslim should have it. And the prophet said, “we should delay the sahoor as much as possible”. we should have it just before the fajar time.

(3). Many Muslims delay opening the fast, they delay iftaar and Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, “The people will be good as long as they hasten in breaking the fast” that means immediately after sunset they should break their fast.

(4). Many Muslims read un-authentic Dua during iftaar. The most authentic Dua as far as iftaar is concerned is “zehbah zamaha wa-abtil-latil urooqu wasa-bata ajar inshallah”. That means “my thirst is quenched, veins are moistened and the reward is written god willing”.
(5). And some people who read this dua when breaking the fast, they say it before breaking the fast. Before they put date in their mouth, they say it and it is contrary to the meaning. The meaning says that my thirst has been quenched and the veins have been moistened. So your thirst cannot be quenched before breaking the fast. So normally it is should be said after you eat the ‘khajoor’ after your water and you are satisfied, maybe after few minutes when you break the fast, then you read this dua.

(6). Many Muslims eat excessively during iftaar and many of them eat throughout the night.

(7). Many of them are negligent as far as taraweeh is concerned, because taraweeh is not a fardh so they think it is no problem if a Muslim missed taraweeh, though taraweeh is not a fardh it is a very important sunnah. And a muslim who missed taraweeh is missing a great deal of reward.

(8). Many Muslims who perform taraweeh they read taraweeh very fast – 100 miles/hour. They try to finish in a short time and they defeat the purpose in fact you should read it at a moderate pace so that people will understand and they grasp the message of Allah subhanwatala.

(9). Those who go for itakaaf in the mosque many of them socialize during itakaaf as though it is a time to meet people and friends. It is totally contradictory to sunnah.

(10). Many of the Muslims think that the ‘laylatul qadar’ (night of power) is on the 27th night of Ramadan and they only worship Allah subhanwatala in this night. Infact our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, “search for the lylatul qadar in the odd nights of the last ten days”. So lylatul qadar can fall on 21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th or 29th.
(11). They spend their time in ramadan in unproductive work rather than spending in dhikir and worshipping Allah subhanwatala. Also they should spend time in offering besides the compulsory salaah, the nawafil – the voulantary salaah and the sunnah salaah.

(12). They should do dua.

(13). They should ask for forgiveness, this is the month of forgiveness.

(14). They should read the Quran as much as possible, to get the blessing of Allah subhanwatala.

(15).They fast and keep themselves hungry but basically they are nor mentally prepared for their fast and it as though they are staying hungry, but the main purpose of fasting is to aquire Taqwah (God consciousness, piety).

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so


It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy


Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
