Hadith: 3 Parts of Ramadan

In a Hadith reported by Salman Al-Farisi: "...The first third of the month of Ramadan is the time for mercy, the second third is for forgiveness, the third is for release from Hellfire…" (Ibn Khuzaymah)

Did you know that....?

  • Fasting is a forgiveness of sins.
  • Ramadan is when the Mercy and Blessings of Allah descend upon us continuously.
  • Fasting is purification and a way of feeling closer to Allah.
  • The Prophet, peace be upon him, said, “whosoever does not give up telling lies or acting in a false manner, Allah has no need for his giving up eating or drinking.”
  • There is blessing in sahur, the pre-dawn meal.
  • In Ramadan, the devils and rebellious jinn are chained up, the doors of Paradise are opened and the doors of Hell are closed.
  • Fasting is more than giving up food and drink; it is about improving behaviour and refraining from sin; so no lying, backbiting or being rude to others.


  1. So the hadith about Ramadan being divided in to 3 parts is a fabrication as the narraters are considered weak?

  2. Yes, but please also read this: https://thuriayaa.wordpress.com/2013/07/21/alert-weak-hadith-ramadan-1st-part-mercy-2nd-part-forgiveness/
