Ramadan is the month in which Quran was sent down by Allah SWT as a guide for human beings. It is the time for reflection, spirituality, forgiveness and self-restraint. It is also a time for the remembrance of our Lord and the asking of forgiveness.
During the month of Ramadan, we become even more aware of our Lord’s blessings, and our Lord’s mercy on us. It is the time to fulfil our Lord’s call to check whether our actions are right or wrong. Are we truly and spiritually remembering Allah or asking forgiveness? In Quran Allah SWT has said:
“Ramadan is the (month) in which Quran was sent down, as a guide to mankind, also clear (signs) for guidance and judgment (between right and wrong) so everyone of you who is present (at his home) during that month should spend it in fasting” Quran (S II – Verse 185).
