Ramadan Mubarak to my Muslim brothaz and sistaz. Also, Sallam (peace) to all others.

This will serve as a reminder for those who know,
education for those who don't and a gesture of Zakat (charity) for myself, as I am Muslim and am observing Ramadan.

As most of you know, Saturday, Sept. 23rd began the first day of The Holy Month of Ramadan for the entire Muslim community worldwide. This time is a blessed one indeed. It was during this time that The Holy Qur'an was revealed unto The Final Messenger of God. The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him), through The Holy Spirit. Archangel Gabriel (upon whom be peace). In observing Ramadan, Muslims must abstain from food, drink, sexual intercourse, smoking (which is prohibited anyway, but a blessing still, to one who wishes to quit.), foul language, backbiting etc. Also, listening to or watching anything that would make one forgetful of The Most High. A meal before dawn is required. Once the daylight is visible from night, all of these things must cease. After the evening prayer, the fast is then broken. Preferably by dates or water, because both have abundant blessing and cleanliness.

This fast not only cleanses our soul, in the sense that we have no energy to do anything that would break our fast, it also teaches patience and gives your digestive organs a rest. More importantly, it reminds us that there are people who feel hunger pains like this every day they wake up and pushes us further to give in charity to those in need.

Along with the obligatory 5 prayers that we are instructed to make all of our lives. A special night prayer is also ordained. This can be performed as many times as we wish.

During this month, the gates of Heaven are open and the gates of Hell are closed. Satan and his devils are all chained. Making it easier for any who wish to use this time to their advantage.
What is that advantage?? Well, if one fasts every day, earnestly. Makes the prayers on time and with conviction. All of his or her sins will be forgiven for the past year.

This month is for Allah alone. Though we know what rewards we will receive in teh cases of prayer, charity...etc...none but Allah knows how He will reward us for this month. So, steadfastness is essential.

30 pages of The Qur'an are to be read daily by the believers as well. This, because, when The Month is completed, we will have read the entire book. Sunnah (the written examples of The Prophet Muhammad's ((pbuh)) way of life, sayings and lectures.) are also to be read more frequently during this time. As it is his example that all Muslims have been ordered to follow.

The most important theme of this month, I believe, is obedience. To give up things like food and drink, to remember The One who gave us such things in the first place, is a fantastic testimony to how righteous we as Human beings can be.

Dear Muslims, take this time to remember the truth about existance. That all things, seen and unseen, came from Him and unto Him shall all things return.

Dear people, those of you who are willing to understand a person for who they really are, instead of how society judges them, may Allah smile upon you always.

Insha-Allah (God Willing), I've helped a few of you with this. There's a significant amount of ignorance in the world today regarding Islam and I seek to show people the true nature of this way of life in any possible way.

Ramadam Mubarak and
As-Sallam-Mua-Laikum (Peace Be Unto You)
