Islam is the only religion on Earth that strongly encourages its followers to go through every word of the Quran at least once a year. It has dedicated an entire month known as as Shahrul Quran / the month of the Quran.
What is Ramadan?
It is the month, month of peace, the month of tranquillity, the month of cure, the month of goodness, the month of forgiveness, the month of mercy, the month of attaining Paradise, the month of the Quran, the month of Revelation, the month of celebration of being a Muslim, where we practice self restraint. We don’t just do what we want. We do what the Almighty has ordained; subhanAllah or it is our duty to make an effort with the word of Allah.
The term shahrul Ramadan is only used once in the Quran. And Allah connects it not to the fasting, but rather to the book that He revealed to us. Allahu Akbar.
The Quran is, Subhanallah, supposed to have an impact on the heart, and we are supposed to become more generous.
Make an effort to fulfill taraweeh, to read the Quran on a daily Like I told you, Revelation, make an effort to go through its meaning. Make an effort to actually let it impact on you. Then you know this is the month of Ramadan.
Soften your hearts towards people, learn to love others, learn to appreciate and respect people. Learn to understand that we will have differences of opinion, but we will love each other with those differences. We will learn to respect each other with those differences. We will not insult. It’s the month of protection from Shaytaan.
Fasting is not all about food and drink alone. It’s about molding yourself.
