We are thankful to Allah Almighty that we fast in another holy month of Ramadan.
Some of the features of the month are fasting from Fajr to evening, sitting at the tables with your brothers during Iftar, performing Taraweeh prayers in congregation and getting up early in the morning for Suhoor. But Ramadan is more than that. This was the month in which the Holy Qur’an was revealed to guide mankind and distinguish well from evil.
By contemplating hunger and thirst, we can better understand the plight of the poor and the importance of helping them, and we strive to do good deeds, to attain piety for the Hereafter, and to gain the pleasure of our Lord. Are our bottom line is restrained, our moral values improve and Ramadan, for all these benefits, illuminates our eyes, enlightens our hearts. With the month of Ramadan that Muslims spend in a pleasant atmosphere, what the believers have observed in this month gives their souls a great deal spiritually. Their sincerity and religious awareness also increase in direct proportion.
Furthermore, believers who are careful that they control themselves and control their desires, by lying, behaving backwards, speaking evil, saying bad things to others, being angry and not being submissive. Avoid, but always try to show proper moral qualities instead Of course, one of the great features of this auspicious month, which is presented with goodness and good manners, is the strengthening of love and brotherhood among the believers. Our Holy Prophet (PBUH) says about this holy month, when the feelings of mutual love, respect and sympathy, tolerance and mutual help come to the fore: “O people! A big month has come upon you. A happy month a month in which night is better than a thousand months. The month in which God has made it obligatory for you to fast during the day and to pray voluntarily at night. The month of patience, and the reward of patience is heaven. It is a month of charity, and a month in which a believer’s sustenance increases.
Another countless blessing of Ramadan, in which we receive material and spiritual blessings from God, and for which we receive every year with deep spirituality with the joy of religious worship, prayer, charity and Iftar and Suhoor. Are that we may know the blessings that are with us. Whoever opens his eyes to the world creates his Lord and who gradually becomes accustomed to perfection in the work of his systems. And one who becomes acquainted with the wonders of the world may fail to appreciate the blessings bestowed upon him.
This veil of negligence is removed from his eyes in the month of Ramadan. He becomes more aware of the blessings bestowed on him by God and begins to understand his power and greatness. When he looks at the blessings placed on the Iftar table, many of the fruits and vegetables, with their delicious aromas and flavors that come out of the soil, and the various products derived from animals, are in fact the art of God. Surprise increases.
He better understands the miracle that bright yellow melons, red apples or strawberries, whose fragrance still cannot be fully replicated by modern technology, should emerge from the soil without smell. When he sits at the table to break his fast after a period of time, although he is deprived of these blessings, but if he is deprived of this blessing, he keeps the value of this blessing in front of him.
With the month of Ramadan, he remembered once again that if God had willed, He could have created for us a single form of sustenance, and it could be as bitter, tasteless and colorful as the clay He created. But the reason is that because of God’s compassion and love for His servants, they have their own unique tastes in all foods. In this way, in the light of the title of God as Merciful and Compassionate, His submission and humility also increases. When we once again experience the great joy of the month of Ramadan, a month that increases our powers of reflection and gives us many spiritual pleasures and it helps us to draw closer to God and show determination. Let’s feel the love and passion we feel in our hearts, we also believe our brothers who are being persecuted all over the world.
We have once again shaken the innocent people of the Middle East by siege and bombing, by strife and suffering. We remember that our brothers are in danger of persecution, slaughter and abuse and genocide in Syria, Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan, Myanmar, Kashmir and many other parts of the world. We remember the importance of unity and solidarity if they are to be saved. Pictures of innocent people wiped out by bombs and machine guns and the bodies of children left in rows never leave our memory.
We think and pray for them every Iftar meal and reaffirm our intentions to do our best to accelerate the arrival of Islamic unity so that they may survive.
We want our God, the Lord of Glory, to answer our prayers. As Muslims with God’s love, we fast with God’s love, and break our fast with God’s love. May he deliver our innocent brothers whom we will never forget for a moment. Let them make the earth a place where the divisions and conflicts of the Islamic world are put aside and all Muslims embrace each other. Let the bloodshed end as soon as possible, let the sufferings of the Ummah and all humanity end and let peace and security prevail.
