Ramadan Timetable 2012
Fasting is one of the greatest blessings Allah has bestowed on us. If it is carried out with the intention of gaining His pleasure, it has the potential to make us constantly aware of Him. If a person refrains from eating and drinking without having the intention to worship Allah, then they aren’t gaining the full reward of fasting. It also confirms our belief in and love for the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) as we fast according to the manner in which he fasted.
On the aspect of personal development, fasting also helps bring out the best in our manners, with Ramadan often being cited as the “month of patience” both for our perseverance in this month and in our preparation for the Hereafter. With millions of people living in poverty across the world it is more important than ever to reassess and strengthen our solidarity.
