We have heard and read the Ahaadeeth regarding the virtues of Ramadhaan many times, however do we ever reflect and ponder over what they mean?
For instance take the hadeeth regarding the Shayaateen being chained up. Since they are chained up they are not around to cause mischief. Allah subhaanahu wataíala is giving us an opportunity to build up our forces and become powerful enough to combat their attack when they are released after Ramadhaan. Therefore perform abundant good deeds, refrain from all disobedience and be included amongst the Muttaaqoon (the god-fearing).
There is the Hadeeth regarding the good deeds performed in Ramadhaan being multiplied manyfold.
"...Whosoever tries to draw nearer to Allah subhaanahu wata'ala by performing any virtuous deeds in this month, for him shall be reward as if he performed a Fard (obligatory action) in any other time of the year. And whoever performs a Fard, for him shall be the reward of seventy Faraaidh in other times of the year..." from Fadhail A'maal
Out of all the deeds, the obligatory ones are most beloved to Allah subhaanhu wata'ala. They are a means of attaining His closeness. Therefore the good deeds performed in the month of Ramadhaan become an easy means of attaining Qurb (nearness) of Allah subhaanahu wata'ala!
