Fasting and other engagements in the holy month of Ramadan were the basis of inner purification and helps attaining the piety. These engagements were meant for special training and providing opportunities for attaining endurance and courage to face the hardships. The prime purpose of Ramadan was to accept Allah’s subjugation and lead the life in accordance with the commandments He had laid in the holy Quran, which were solely for the benefits of the Muslims.
The reward of the fast could not be imagined as Allah Almighty had said that the fasting was for Him and He would bless the Muslims for keeping fast. Hence, the holy month of Ramadan was an opportunity to get purified, cleansed of sins and become pious and ultimately pleases The Creator, Allah.
Those who ignored the importance of the holy month of Ramadan were in fact the loser. While the society was being inflicted with nudity and vulgarism, the Muslims had been avoiding their duty for stopping that unethical, immoral and anti-Islam trends and practices from the society.
The practices done in the holy month of Ramadan should be followed in other 11 months, thus the entire year should be led by the piety attained in this month.
