2017-05-24 06:00

RAMADAN is an opportunity to submerge oneself in the endless ocean of Almighty Allah’s mercy and pardon, wherein complete forgiveness is guaranteed.

The burden and anguish of sin leads to frustration and anxiety will be lifted. Fasting in the month of Ramadan is a unique moral and spiritual attribute.

The main reason behind fasting is to attain piety, after all it is an act of worship that testifies to total submission and obedience.

The hardship that the faithful endure while carrying out this obligation is insignificant in comparison to the noble objective of attaining Almighty Allah’s pleasure and the great reward in the hereafter.

Fasting helps the faithful develop a strong personality and character. It instills in them the quality of willpower and determination. It also helps develop the virtue of displaying affection towards the poor and distressed, for one can easily remember their condition when one undergoes the pangs of hunger.

Fasting also nurtures a gentle forbearing character and teaches patience. It also provides the faithful with spiritual growth and physical fitness. It strengthens the body and is a cure to many diseases.

The righteous servants of Allah welcomes this month with repentance and determination to fully reap its benefit and put its precious time to good use.
