The four sacred months

Q: Allah Ta’ala has decreed four sacred month and this is well known. Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) has mentioned so many virtues of the month of Ramadaan. What is the difference between the four sacred months and the blessed month of Ramadaan. Which ones are more superior and why?

Bismillaah

A: The four sacred months have their own virtues and the month of Ramadhaan has its own virtues. However the four sacred months are greater than the month of Ramadhaan.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

إِنَّ عِدَّةَ الشُّهُورِ عِندَ اللَّـهِ اثْنَا عَشَرَ شَهْرًا فِي كِتَابِ اللَّـهِ يَوْمَ خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ مِنْهَا أَرْبَعَةٌ حُرُمٌ ذَٰلِكَ الدِّينُ الْقَيِّمُ فَلَا تَظْلِمُوا فِيهِنَّ أَنفُسَكُمْ وَقَاتِلُوا الْمُشْرِكِينَ كَافَّةً كَمَا يُقَاتِلُونَكُمْ كَافَّةً وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّـهَ مَعَ الْمُتَّقِينَ ﴿التوبة: ٣٦﴾
