It’s the advent of per month that’s filled with immeasurable blessings; the thirty days which necessitate a Muslim to observe one of many five pillars of Islam, fasting. This month helps all the Muslims to abstain themselves from all the bad deeds and to produce good habits in them.
Life is high in challenges and we confront it on regular basis. But Islam has given us a true bounty of Ramadan to meet up the challenges with courage and confidence. Where this blessed month brings an opportunity for all your Muslims to alter their habits and to produce good deeds, in addition it brings to be able to look for forgiveness.
Based on Allah, the gates of Heaven are thrown open, the gates of Hell are closed and the devils are chained in this month. Our Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) said,
“When the initial night of Ramadan comes, the devils and the rebellious jinn are chained, the gates of Hell are locked and not one of them is opened; the gates of Paradise are opened and not one of them is locked; and a crier calls,’You who desire what is good, come forward, and you who desire evil, refrain.’ Some are freed from Hell by Allah, and that occurs every night.” (Tirmidhi).
Another proposal with this month could be the act of fasting, which was ordained during the 2nd year of Hijrah. Fasting is obligatory for all your Muslims. Fasting develops the skills of self-restraint and self-control in someone, as anyone fasting does not just abstain from food and drink, but s/he must also refrain from many other items: backbiting, gossiping, bad deeds, using abusive language etc.
The Prophet said, “Whoever does not quit false statements (i.e. telling lies), and evil deeds, and speaking bad words to others, Allah isn’t needing his (fasting) leaving his food and drink” (Bukhari).
The observance of fasting during Ramadan constitutes one of the five pillars of Islam. The experience of fasting is designed to teach Muslims self-discipline and self-restraint, and understand a little of the plight of the less privileged (e.g., the hungry, thirsty and the poor). Furthermore, Ramadan fasting is not merely about disciplining the body to avoid eating and drinking from pre-dawn until sunset, but can also be about exerting control on the mind. This involves restraining anger, doing good deeds, exercising personal discipline, and preparing someone to serve as an excellent Muslim and a great person. Fasting during Ramadan is prescribed for every healthy, adult Muslim whereas the weak, the sick, children, travelers and menstruating women are those types of exempted. Muslims observing the fast are needed to abstain not merely from eating food and normal water, but in addition from consuming oral medicines and injecting intravenous nutritional fluids.
The goal of fasting is to have spiritual happiness besides material welfare and to explore a real sense of happiness within us. This month is a fortunate month and gives us an email to be pious to to get closer to Allah.
In the Quran, Allah says:
O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you, even while it absolutely was prescribed for anyone when you that ye may defend against (evil) (2:183).
Fasting is a motion, which, we are told, will become a shield for us whenever we most need it.
Allah’s Apostle said,
“Fasting is a shield or protection from the fire and from committing sins” (Bukhari).
Ramadan is the month, when most of the Muslims should have to pay for their yearly Zakat from whatever she or he has earned. Paying Zakat is obligatory in Islam and every you’ve got to check out its procedure strictly. Look after the indegent relatives, neighbors and other deprived people is also ordained upon the Muslims in the shape of Zakat. A small portion of wealth, left accumulated in the last year, is to be distributed on the list of deserving people, thus developing a sense of gratitude on the list of rich towards the Almighty and at once a feeling of fulfillment among the under-privileged towards the Almighty, in addition to a feeling of brotherhood towards the giver of the charity.
