Ramadan As It Should Be: A Month of Peace and Giving
Date: 2 months ago
"If someone insults you, say I am fasting I am fasting"
Ramadan is a significant month of spiritual reflection and self-improvement observed by Muslims worldwide. The month-long observance involves fasting from sunrise to sunset, practicing charity, and performing good deeds to purify the soul and strengthen the connection with Allah.
Foremost, Ramadan is a time to embrace peace. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) advised that when insulted, a Muslim should respond by saying, "I am fasting." This guidance encourages Muslims to exercise self-control, patience, and empathy towards others, responding to provocation with kindness and understanding.
The month of Ramadan is an occasion for giving back to the community. Fasting is a way to remind us of the hunger felt by those that are less fortunate and in need, whether through monetary donations, volunteering at soup kitchens, or simply being kind to others. These charitable acts will surely help us in our struggle toward inner peace and our devotion to Allah. Let's remember that our actions impact the world around us.
Fasting during the day is just one aspect of this sacred month. The true essence of Ramadan lies in the inner transformation that occurs as a result of observing it as it should be. Ramadan is a time to prioritize peace, charity and self-improvement and strengthening our bond with Allah.
