Ramadan is the month of blessings for all. It inculcates the spirit of virtue and kind deeds in every one’s heart. Fasting is not only based on hunger and thirst rather its essence teaches the followers to frame their lives in the best possible way for long term. The basic purpose of Ramadan is to develop unity, fraternity and brother hood among the Muslims all over the world. We can conclude that the Holy Month is a training session for the remaining year. During this month, one learns to schedule his life so as to please the Creator.
The exclusivity of Islam is that it is the religion of nature and its teachings are easy to follow practically. It tells that little deeds of kindness will remain eternal and will continue to outshine always. Ramadan makes the Muslims philanthropists. As they avoid eating and drinking anything from dawn till dusk, they come to know of the difficulties and problems which the less fortunate have to face. Therefore, the fortunate ones are motivated to help the downtrodden people of the society. It is the month which spreads the beautiful feelings of equality and fairness. It is the month of sharing!
Ramadan is the month of personal assessment and the month is about to leave. We have entered the last ten nights of the Holy Month. It’s the time to question yourself that what have you gained from this blessed month? Have you practised fasting as its true essence demands? Have you tried to help out others? Have you performed any little deeds of kindness? Have you brought changes in your lifestyle? Once you answer these questions, promise yourself today that you will continue incorporating the practices of Islamic teachings just as you are following them during this month. In this way, will be showered by endless blessings not only in this world but also hereafter!
