The Greatest Intention in Receiving Ramadan

Answered by Sayyidi Habib Umar bin Hafiz (may Allah protect him and benefit us by him)

There are many intentions that we can make in receiving Ramadan. What is the greatest single intention?

We intend to perfect our following of the best person who ever experienced Ramadan, the one by whom Ramadan was ennobled ﷺ. There is no greater or more comprehensive intention than this. We should be keen to implement as much of his Sunnah as we are able. We should be conscious that we are emulating him in both obligatory and extra acts of worship and in customary actions. All types of good and all other intentions are combined in this intention.
