In Ramadan tips to follow.
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. Ramadan is the most blessed month in the Islamic calendar. Every Muslim do fast this month. Ramadan is the month in which every Muslim does good things. Ramazan is the most important month in the Islamic calendar, It’s a time for calm thought and self-control. Ramadan, like many others, urges us to live with kindness and charity.
It is historically regarded as the month of fasting and good deeds. In brief, Ramazan is a month that, if properly practiced by a Muslim, would assist in the purification of his or her soul and get him or her closer to Allah (SWT).
“The month of Ramadan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey – then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful.”
(Al Quran 2:185)
Prayer in Ramadan
Without prayer, our fast is not complete. Prophet Muhammad S.A.W said:
Whoever establishes prayers during the nights of Ramadan faithfully out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah’s rewards (not for showing off), all his past sins will be forgiven.”
Sahih al-Bukhari: 37
So, in Ramazan, we offer prayers 5 times a day. Without prayer, our fast is not completed. Prayers are the most important part of our Fast.
Recite Quran every day.
During Ramadan, we can not only recite the Quran during prayer but also recite and read it. In Ramadan, the Quran was announced. Allah’s teachings in our holy book are the cornerstone of our friendship with him. So, having time to recite and understand Allah’s teachings is a perfect way to nurture this partnership.
Give Charity in Ramazan.
Ramadan is a month of love and kindness. Although we might not be able to come together as a community, you can always be a part of it by donating. When you donate to charity, you are not only supporting your fellow human beings; you are also enjoying God’s joy. It is particularly rewarding to give iftar to a poor brother or sister.
Prophet Muhammad S.A.W, said, “Whoever provides a fasting person food to break the fast will earn a reward equal to the reward of that fast, without the fasting person’s reward decreasing in the least.”
Forgiving bad deeds and gaining Rewards.
For the sake of Allah (SWT), Muslims should abstain from food and drink from sunup to sundown. This strengthens their iman and gets them closer to Allah (SWT). As Allah said in Quran:
“O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous”
(Al Quran 2:183)
