Ramadan the Month of Fasting, Forgiveness and Blessings

Ramadan is a month of fasting. In Ramadan we read Quran and learn different aspects of life. There are 30 days in Ramadan and Quran has 30 Suparah. Muslims easily recite all the Quran in 30 days of Ramadan and understand what it says then implement the teaching of Islam in their lives. Quran tells us the right way. Ramadan is a month when ALLAH showers his blessings on Muslims. ALLAH forgives Muslims and saves them from the fire of hell. Ramadan is a month when Muslims forget all things and worship ALLAH for his forgiveness and blessings. It is the month when Quran was revealed to our beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

Ramadan makes us more and more close to ALLAH and is a good practice to recall our deeds for all the year beyond. And we can save our year ahead from the sins and wrong way. ALLAH wants us to do all this in the month of Ramadan.

ALLAH said in Quran (2:61) "And recall when you said, "O Moses, we can never endure one [kind of] food. So call upon your Lord to bring forth for us from the earth its green herbs and its cucumbers and its garlic and its lentils and its onions." [Moses] said, "Would you exchange what is better for what is less? Go into [any] settlement and indeed, you will have what you asked." And they were covered with humiliation and poverty and returned with anger from Allah [upon them]."

ALLAH said in Holy Quran “And we send this month to you, the month of Ramadan is better than thousand months”.

Ramadan is also good for our health. It makes our mind relaxed and saves us from the Evil. The beauty of Ramadan is that Muslims fast because their lord ALLAH has said them to. Ramadan not only does spiritual development but also physical development. Muslims should be cheerful when Ramadan came. Ramadan provides opportunity to strengthen faith.
