|“O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed upon you as it was prescribed upon those before you, so that you may be pious (or you may learn self-restriant.” (Surah Al- Baqarah: 183)
During Ramadan, when we abstain from food and water, our body is put to test. But during Ramadan when we are asked to stay away from sins, we learn to master our soul and desires. Ramadan is one month where we can take a step back and look at our lives in totality. Look at the way we are leading our lives and try to walk in the direction that has been revealed 1400 years ago. Looking at the pitiful conditions of Muslims, put our ego aside, make amends and together become one single unit of Muslims rather than divide ourselves into thousands of sects.
May we make the most of this month. May Allah guide us all and keep us on the straight path. May our sins be forgiven during this holy month and we be granted Paradise in Hereafter. Ameen.
Narrated Abu Huraira(may Allah be pleased with him): Allah’s Messenger(Peace be upon him) said: “When the month of Ramadan starts,the gates of the heaven are opened and the gates of HEll are closed and the devils are chained.”
Narrated Abu Huraira(may Allah be pleased with him): Allah’s Messenger (Peace be upon him) said:”Whoever does not give up lying speech (false statements)and acting on those lies and evil actions etc.,Allah is not in need of his leaving his food and drink [ i.e. Allah doesnot want his Saum]”
