Ramadan Is the month of forgiveness. It is a month in which there is a night more powerful than a thousand months. So before we get into Ramadan, one of the first things you should do to seek the forgiveness of Allah so that you start Ramadan with a clean slate.
Let’s remember, Allah doesn’t need us. We need Allah. So Allah is watching us. He put an instruction and he says, what are you going to do? Pray five times a day for me, but the benefit is actually yours.
If the whole world had to transgress against Allah, it doesn’t deplete anything from Allah’s Kingdom. It doesn’t decrease His value even in iota. And if all of us had to obey Allah, may Allah make us from among those, it doesn’t increase the value of Allah, it increases our value. We become closer to Allah.
Spend a bit of time with the people; serve the people, especially those who are underprivileged. The Prophet (pbuh) has told us to serve those who have been struck with calamity disaster.
