Ramadan can also b called the month of Repentence. The more one does Taubah the greater the chance of being forgiven.
It (Ramadhan) is the month, whose beginning is mercy, its middle, forgiveness and its end, emancipation from the fire. (of hell) — Bihar al-Anwar, Vol.: 93, Pg.: 342
Sura Qadr, chapter decree
Verily, We have sent it down in the Night of Al-Qadr) (97:1). This was in the month of Ramadan, as Allah tells us: (The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur’an) (2:185).
Brief explanation of the importance of the night of al Qadr
(Therein (that night) is decreed every matter, Hakim.) means, on Laylatul-Qadr, the decrees are transferred from Al-Lawh Al-Mahfuz (Allah, before creation, ordered pen to write everything for the future n it did. These r all stored n sealed by Allah in a safety locker known as lawh al mahfuz n no one besides Allah can access them) to the (angelic) scribes who write down the decrees of the (coming) year including life span, provision, and what will happen until the end of the year. This was narrated from Ibn `Umar, Mujahid, Abu Malik, Ad-Dahhak and others among the Salaf.
(Hakim) means decided or confirmed, which cannot be changed or altered. Allah says:
(As a command from Us.) meaning, everything that happens and is decreed by Allah and the revelation that He sends down — it all happens by His command, by His leave and with His knowledge.
