Ramadan; the month of spiritual reflection, self-improvement, and devotion to Allah

Fasting during the holy month of Ramadan is the third pillar of Islam. Ordained in the Holy Quran, fasting during the month of Ramadan is obligatory on Muslims. Fasting is an act of deep personal worship in which Muslims seek a richer perception of Allah. Fasting or the month of Ramadan is a golden opportunity in the life of Muslims because according to the texts of the Holy Quran, the month of Ramadan has with it the night of power, in which the performed worship has a reward equal to the worship of a thousand months. It is also mentioned in the hadith that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to tell his colleagues about Ramadan. The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “When Ramadan begins, the gates of Paradise are opened and the gates of Hell are closed, and the devils are put in chains.” Like other obligatory acts of worship, fasting also has special rules and etiquettes that must be taken seriously and performed according to the proper way as the obligatory acts of worship during this month have the reward of seventy obligations. Fasting is a school of human development with rewards and blessings, because at this time the human soul becomes weak, and sympathy and compassion lead to the heart. It is the fasting of the holy month of Ramadan that forces you to take care of your soul as this fasting directs all actions and thoughts to the divine instructions, and every moment of it ends with thought and remembrance. Fasting is what forces you to give charity. When you feel hungry and thirsty, others seem hungry and thirsty, and as a result, an atmosphere of kindness and compassion arises. It is Fasting that forces us to take care of our health. If we look at the level of diseases in the world, we see that most of the diseases are mostly as the result of bad habits and eating excessive food, but the only way to address such diseases is to observe fasting. Fasting forces one to have a schedule or plan in different areas of life. Fasting is also a good opportunity to give up bad habits and addictions. Many Muslims who are addicted to bad habits and drugs will be freed from all bad habits and drugs by the blessings of Allah. Keep fasting according to your needs and conditions and make it an example for your future life. May Allah give us the ability to observe fast properly, the reward and the happiness of those who do it. Amen Muhibullah Mayar
