Life is saturated in challenges and we confront it on regular basis. But Islam has given us a real bounty of Ramadan to meet the challenges with courage and confidence. Where this blessed month brings a chance for all your Muslims to change their habits and to produce good deeds, in addition, it brings to be able to ask 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 first nights 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 happens every night.” (Tirmidhi).
Another proposal with this month is the act of fasting, that has been ordained during the next year of Hijrah. Fasting is obligatory for all the Muslims. Fasting develops the skills of self-restraint and self-control in an individual, as anyone fasting does not only have to abstain from food and drink, but s/he must avoid many other activities: backbiting, gossiping, bad deeds, using abusive language etc.
The Prophet said, “Whoever does not stop trying false statements (i.e. telling lies), and evil deeds, and speaking bad words to others, Allah isn’t in need of his (fasting) leaving his food and drink” (Bukhari).
The observance of fasting during Ramadan constitutes one of the five pillars of Islam. The ability of fasting is meant 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 only about disciplining the human body to keep from eating and drinking from pre-dawn until sunset, but can also be about exerting control on the mind. This requires restraining anger, doing good deeds, exercising personal discipline, and preparing anyone to serve as a great Muslim and an excellent person. Fasting during Ramadan is prescribed for every single 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 just from eating food and normal water, but in addition from consuming oral medicines and injecting intravenous nutritional fluids.
The goal of fasting is to get spiritual happiness besides material welfare and to explore a true sense of happiness within us. This month is a blessed month and gives us a note to be pious to to have nearer to Allah.
In the Quran, Allah says:
O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you personally, even as it absolutely was prescribed for anyone before you that ye may defend against (evil) (2:183).
Fasting is a motion, which, we’re told, will behave as a shield for us once we most need it.
Allah’s Apostle said,
“Fasting is really a shield or protection from the fire and from committing sins” (Bukhari).
Ramadan may be the month, when most of the Muslims needs to have to cover their yearly Zakat from whatever she or he has earned. Paying Zakat is obligatory in Islam and every one has to check out its procedure strictly. Take care of the poor relatives, neighbors and other deprived people can be ordained upon the Muslims in the form of Zakat. A small portion of wealth, left accumulated in the earlier year, is usually to be distributed among the deserving people, thus making a sense of gratitude among the rich towards the Almighty and at once a feeling of fulfillment among the under-privileged towards the Almighty, as well as a feeling of brotherhood towards the giver of the charity.
