The holy Quran was descended upon the heart of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in the holy month of Ramadan, which is a highly august and blessed month. The holy Quran is the only divine Book that is intact and would remain intact till the Day of Judgment and it could never be altered, modified or replaced and it is the only Book of ultimate guidance to the whole of the mankind. Ramadan is the month to seek Almighty Allah’s forgiveness, take a firm stance to lead the life in strict compliance to the teachings and commands laid in the holy Quran. The Ramadan is the month to examine one’s character, attitude and behavior towards other human and creatures.
The Ramadan is the month to engage in prayers as much as one could and should also remember the war-driven Muslims of Afghanistan, Iraq, Kashmir, Palestine and in particular Myanmar where the Muslims are exposed to deliberate genocide under the forces of Myanmar.
The fasting in the holy month of Ramadan creates force in humans to endure pains with courage and help improve inner self of those who fast. The fasting improves ties with the Almighty Allah and helps become pious and kind.
People of the country have been confronting for past many years, since the country is gripped by unending crises such as poverty, hunger, target killings, lawlessness, corruption, profiteering, violation of human rights and many more so it is imperative on us all Muslims that we organize special event for collective prayers seeking Allah’s forgiveness so as to seek his blessing and riddance of the evils.
