The Month of Mercy.
Allah, ofcourse, knew that man will forget Him once he occupies himself in the affairs of the world. He will not pay as much attention to worship as he will be immersed in his worldly pursuits. So, he said to man, “We will give you more opportunity. Every year you will get one month. You will spend eleven months running after the material things and We will give you one month of Mercy. If you come to us in this one Month, you will regain the lost spiritual blessings and you will again come near Us. We guide you in this month that the rust that has come over your heart you may remove and may you come out of negligence. You may take up Our remembrance.”
To obtain these things fasting is very important. The other forms of worship prescribed this month are also helpful in achieving nearness to Allah. The aim of Allah is that those who have gone far away may regain nearness to Him.
Allah has said “O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you as was prescribed for those before you that you may be God fearing.” (Al-baqarah 2:183)
It is as though Allah says: The eleven months that you have been spending away from Us have weakened your taqwa (fear of Allah). You can regain that by fasting this months.” So, it is not enough that we fast and pray but we must regain what we have lost in that past eleven months. In the month of Ramadan, we must bring down the other tasks as much as we can. Let us keep this month for worship.
Inshaallah if Allaah allows us we will prepare very good articals and information for Ramadan in our website. May Allah give us the tawfeeq to strengthen our connection with him and strive in our efforts for His Face.
