    Default Reason for the Name Ramadhan

    Five Letters of the Word ‘Ramadhan’

    Our pious predecessors have stated that there are five (Arabic) letters in the word ‘Ramadhan’ – Raa is the Pleasure (Raza) of Allah Ta’ala; Meem is the orgiveness (Magfirat) of Allah Ta’ala; Duaad is the Security (Zamanat) of Allah Ta’ala; Alif is the Love (Ulfat) of Allah Ta’ala; and Noon is the Beneficence or Bounty (Nawaal) of Allah Ta’ala. Therefore, the person who worships in the month of Ramadhan, becomes deserving of all these.

    Reason for the Name Ramadhan

    ‘Ramadhan’ is from the root ‘Ramadh’, which means ‘to burn’.
    Commentators have stated some reasons for this month being given the name ‘Ramadhan’:
    1. It is called ‘Ramadhan’ because, as a result of hunger and thirst in this month, the body becomes weak and burns.
    2. Fasting burns and destroys sins.
    3. When it was time for this month to be named, it was extremely hot and that is why it was called ‘Ramadhan’, just as when it was time for the months of Rabi ul Awwal and Rabi uth Thaani to be named, it was spring time.
    4. ‘Ramadhan’ is one of the names of Allah Ta’ala and therefore, it should not simply be called ‘Ramadhan’, but the word ‘month’ should be added before it (Shehr e Ramadhan) – meaning ‘Allah Ta’ala’s month’, just as it is reported: “Do not say Ramadhan has come and Ramadhan has departed, rather say that the month of Ramadhan has arrived, the month of Ramadan has departed.”

    The Four Names of Ramadan-ul-Mubarak

    Mufti Ahmad Yaar Khan rehmatullah alaih says in his commentary on the Qur’an Tafseer-e-Na’eemi, “In total, there are four names for this auspicious month:
    (1) Ramadan,
    (2) The month of patience (sabr),
    (3) The month of sympathy (mu’asat) and
    (4) The month of increase in sustenance (wus’at-erizq).”
    He rehmatullah alaih further writes, “Fast is patience (sabr), and its reward is Allah azwajal, and it (fast) is kept in this month, therefore, it is called the month of patience. Mu’asat means “treating others well”.
    This month is called the month of sympathy because the reward for behaving well (and sympathising) with Muslims, especially relatives, is increased. In this month the sustenance is increased and even poor people enjoy the bounties of Allah azwajal, therefore, it is called the month of increased sustenance.” (Tafseer-e-Na’eemi, V2, P208)
