As Ramadhaan approaches, we should commence reading about the fadhaail and virtues of Ramadhaan so that we can motivate ourselves. A businessman markets and advertises his products and then he sees the customers coming in. Likewise, through reading these Ahaadith, we will be motivated to prepare and be ready for the month of Ramadhaan.
Just as water brings about life, so too do the blessings of Ramadhaan bring life to the soul. Once it is stored in the soul, fulfilling the orders of Allah Ta‘ala in the remaining months of the year become easy. It is preserved by protecting the inlets to the soul from sins, i.e. the eyes, ears and tongue.
