The Fasting: A blessing touch to the minds


     As we know, the forth fundamental of Islam is to fast every day of the month of Ramadan. Fasting is called in Arabic ‘Sawm’. Sawm means to protect something against something else. In Islam, Sawm means to protect oneself against three things (during the days) of the month of Ramadan, as they were commented by Allah: eating, drinking and sexual intercourse.In the month of fasting, all believers are soaring in to the pinnacle of self fulfillment. The fasting, which arriving each year, makes the life of believer pure and conscious of the eventual aim of human life. Once, the holy Messenger said that the fasting is a buckler. This buckler protects him from the impediments and entangling in expressing one’s slavery and sincerity.... Read more

The blossoming of peace

      The Arabic word, sawm, is the synonym of English word, fasting. Imam Razi(R) says: the linguistic meaning of the fasting is to avoid anything or abstain from it. The scholars united in the matter that the fasting of Ramadan is basically an obligatory one but others will not be the obligatory deeds. The fasting is a manner of worship (ibadath) which made obligatory to the Messengers from Adam (a) to our Messenger (Peace be upon him).The blessed month of Ramadan is very honorable.... Read more

The nocturnal prayer (Tharaweeh)

     The nocturnal prayer (Tharaweeh) is a voluntary prayer which is recommended only in the nights of Ramadan. Imam Sharqavi says: the word, Tharaweeh, is the plural form of tharweehath, its meaning is ‘to take rest at one time’. The one who does this prayer might take rest at each four Raka’ths of it (Fath-hul mubdi 2/165).The very name, Tharaweeh, itself can be seen in the time of the Companions of Prophet (Peace and Blessing of Allah be upon him). Imam Masu’di states in his Muruju-dhahab(2/328): the caliph Umer (R) ordered to pray Tharaweeh in the nights of Ramadan in 14H. Muhammad ul Baghdadi says: it was Umer (R) who was the first one for implementing the prayer, Tharaweeh, in congregation. But, the deviators argue that it is imam Bukhari who brings the name, Tharaweeh, at first. Some argue that this naming took place after the time of imam Bukhari. Nevertheless, from the histories we can understand that this naming was famous in the time of the prophet’s followers. ....Read more


In Ramadan, Spend our time wisely


      The month of Ramadan is a precious, precious time, so much so that Allah calls this month 'Ayyaman Ma'doodaat' (A fixed number of days). Before we know it, this month of mercy and forgiveness will be over. We should try and spend every moment possible in the worship of Allah so that we can make the most of this blessing. However, there are some of us who waste away, trying to obey Allah by disobeying him!.Most Muslims who fast Ramadan focus on the benefits and rewards of it. But in doing so, we often make mistakes that instead of adding to our experience actually detract from it. Mistakes that can make us commercialize Ramadan as so many other religions have commercialized their sacred days. May Allah help us to spend our time wisely this Ramadan and help us to avoid these mistakes. . . Read more


Medical Benefits of Ramadan


       Muslims do not fast because of medical benefits, but because it has been ordained to them through our beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessing of Allah be upon him). There are so many medical benefits as a result of fasting. Fasting, in general, has been used in medicine for medical reasons including weight management, for rest of the digestive tract and for lowering lipids. There are many adverse effects of total fasting as well as so-called crash diets. Islamic fasting is different from such diet plans because in Ramadan fasting, there is no malnutrition or inadequate calorie intake. Read more
