The question reads, is it disrespectful to say Ramadan? Or does one have to say, the month of Ramadan? This is a good question my dear brothers and sisters, the scholars have three views regarding this particular question the first view and this is the view of the Maliki method and it is a view in the humble method and it states that it is disliked, just to say Ramadan, however, one should say the month of Ramadan and they use as evidence and eration attributed to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, in which he says latifolia Ramadan Ravana is movement Asma Illa Allah in Oulu Sharma and in this particular iteration of the translation of which is do not say Ramadan,

The third view states that it is permissible to say Ramadan just as it is permissible to say, the month of Ramadan irrespective of context, it is permissible all the time just to say I'm Yvonne and this is the correct view. And Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah knows best and the evidence for this is that if we look in the sooner we see, in the authentic books of Hadith authentic narrations, English Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam just mentions Ramadan by itself without mentioning the month or the month of Ramadan. For example, He says sallallahu alayhi wa sallam either j or Ahmad Abu Jana, right that if Ramadan comes, the doors

00:02:15--> 00:02:35

of gender are opened wide. And in another narration Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said, a number of Ramadan Terra de lo hijack, that an aroma in Ramadan is equivalent in terms of rewards to a hedge and Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah knows best
