Ramadhan: The Month of Blessings, Mercy and Forgiveness

It is the most sacred month of the year for Muslims which exactly begins and culminates based on the sighting of the Moon

April 14, 2021 | Mushtaq Bhat

Let's try to forgive everyone who has wronged us so that we can focus on entering the month which is blessing and a form of mercy and forgiveness bestowed upon humanity by Allah. Ramadhan (also known as Ramzan) which is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. It is a time when Muslims around the world focus on prayer, fasting, giving to charity, and religious devotion. It is the most sacred month of the year for Muslims which exactly begins and culminates based on the sighting of the Moon.

Ramadhan is one of the pillars of Islam along with the testimony of faith, prayer, charitable giving, and making a pilgrimage to Mecca (the five basic tenets of the Muslim religion).
According to Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) when the month of Ramadhan starts the gates of heaven are opened whereas the gates of hell are closed. It is the month in which the Holy "Quran-e-Shareef was revealed to the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) in a night known as "Shab e Qadr". During the entire month Muslims fast from dawn to sunset. It is meant to be a time of spiritual discipline of deep contemplation of one's relationship with Almighty Allah. One must understand it's real essence that it is not just about abstaining from food & drink during daylight hours rather the spiritual side of Islam's holiest month is far more important. Thus we could say that false words or bad deeds or intentions are as destructive of a fast as is eating or drinking. Fasting is being made obligatory for Muslims so that they may attain to Allah's consciousness, there fore the real essence and purpose of fasting is "Taqwa" the righteousness. The Quran repeatedly commands to have Taqwa, and the implication of the term is that one protects oneself by always keeping Allah in view. In other words, when we say something or do something, we do it as we see Allah and we are very careful, vigilant and cautious about this, because we know that Allah sees not only our actions and dealings, but also knows our thoughts and intentions, what we conceal in the inner of our hearts.
In fact Ramadhan is one of the most blessed and revered months of the year, so one must not leave a single moment without worshipping to Allah in thoughts and deeds. The whole month of Ramadhan is divided into three parts of ten days with each part called an 'Ashra' an Arabic word which means ten days. Every 'Ashra' has its countless blessings and revered. The first ten days are the days of mercy and we should seek mercy during these days. The second part or Ashra exhibits Forgiveness of Allah whereas its third part is believed to be release from the fire of hell. May Allah give us the strength to seek Allah’s mercy, forgiveness, and release from fire of hell! Ameen.
Let's keep focus straight during Ramadhan and grab the opportunity and purpose of fasting. Let's be more focused and motivated.
