Ramadan Ul Mubarak is about to knock on the doors. Millions of Muslims all around the world wait for this great moment of closeness towards Allah Almighty.
It is the month of not just refraining from the items of physical strength but also from the misdeeds that are likely to impact upon the spiritual health too. Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar.
Every year Muslims celebrate the month with the desire to get the blessings of the Allah Almighty. They put in all the efforts to do the best deeds that can help them win the best of both the worlds. The significance of the month is evident from the verses of Quran and the sayings of the Holy Prophet.
Allah says that the fast is obligatory for the Muslims just like it used to be for the people before Islam so that they get infused with the characteristics of piety and nobleness. It is like a spiritual bath that allows keeping away all kinds of bad from our lives.
This one month is significant in several ways. On one hand it protects the souls from evils and on the other hand keeps the body fit. It is a kind of detoxification of the body.
Limiting the diet and taking particular foods for a comfortable fast time can make the things better for those who want to stay healthy throughout the year.
According to the quaint verses and the quotes of the Prophet all the evil forces especially the Satan are chained on the arrival of the Ramadan so that the pious Muslims can spend the best time in the company of their Creator.
This month is just prayers, supplications and thankfulness to the Almighty. It is the time of endless blessings and virtues. The doors to heaven stay open for the Muslims fasting for the sake of Allah.
Aitekaf makes it further special as it is the time in the last ten days of this holy month in which the Muslims occupy an isolated place to get connected with their Almighty in all the spirit.
The month of Ramadan is split into three distinct parts. Each part is called ashra or the ten days. The first part of the month is the mercy, second part of the month is maghfirat or forgiveness and the final part is safety from the hell or nijat.
One essential aspect of the month is that the Holy Quran was revealed in this month. The last ten odd nights hold the secret night in which Gabriel came to the Holy Prophet with the message from the Almighty. This great night is referred as the Laila tul Qadr.
