What does RAMADAN stand for? 

Imām ar-Raghib said

Ramaḍān is taken from the word ramad which means that which is intensely or vigorously heated by the sun. And the word ramdha means the intense heat of the sun. [The Arabs used to say] the sheep that they were burned (ramidat) while they were grazing under the burning heat of the sun insofar as their livers were damaged (by the intense heat of the sun). Ramaḍān was named such because it burns the sins of the believers.

Imām al-Zamarkhshari wrote

"When they changed the names of the months of the ancient tongue, they called them according to the seasons where they fell, and this month fell in the days of intense heat and that is why it was named Ramaḍān ' '

How does Allāh burn our sins?

The Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) is reported to have said: “…Whoever draws nearer (to Allāh) by performing any of the (optional) good deeds in (this month) shall receive the same reward as performing an obligatory deed at any other time, and whoever discharges an obligatory deed in (this month) shall receive the reward of performing seventy obligations at any other time… ” [Narrated by Ibn Khuzaymah]

Therefore one of the main ways in which Allāh eradicates and deletes our sins and wrong doings is by multiplying our deeds in the month of Ramaḍān and erases our sins because the hasanat (good deeds) eliminates the sayyi’aat (bad deeds).

May Allāh subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) destroy by the light of His raḥmah all our past sins, and may He make all of us among His servants who receive the glad tidings of forgiveness.

Please keep me in your sincere du‘ā’s and forgive any mistakes I may have committed.
