The month of Ramazan enjoys an intrinsic superiority over all the other months of the year. Likewise, it’s last Ashra or ten days are superior to the two earlier ‘Ashras, and Laylatul Qadr or the Night of Power, generally falls in it.
Experience shows that effects of Ibaadah(worship) in the blessed month Ramazan remains whole year round. Whoever practices any virtue in Ramadan ease of performing good deed overtakes them thereafter.
Similarly, whoever prevents them self from sinning therein is likely to stay away from them throughout the year. Actually prevention from sins in Ramazan is not very difficult because it is established that the Shaitan is imprisoned. Consequently, less sinning occurs the rest of the year.
Thus, we must try to make ourselves perfect in Ramadan with respect to practicing virtues and avoiding sins so that the remaining year bears fruit for our one month drill.
