Fasting in the lunar month of Ramdan is the third pillar of Islam and it has a great impact on a Muslim’s life. It teaches patience, obedience, and makes us to care about the hunger of poor people. It tells us to have the sense of sympathy for poor and hungry people around us. Ramdan is there for our spiritual exercise for the betterment of our souls with good relationship with Allah Al-Mighty. Ramdhan aims to make us Muttaqi, which means being protective form disobedience of our lord Al-Mighty Allah.
Every moment of this blessed month is precious to be save in obedience. This month will be a model month to spend life in rest of the month of the year. We take utmost care during this Holy month in fasting, taking care of our prayers, reciting the Holy Quran, giving the charity and Zakah, offering Taraveeh prayers, Qiyamul Lail, paying Sadaqa tul Fitart, and abstaining from eating and drinking in day time because of the Hukam. This routine must be carried into other months of year so that we can lead an obedient life.
To attain Taqwa in Ramdan, the Holy Quran is the main source to be utilize by reading and reciting it more and more in the month of fasting. This is the word of Allah and was revealed in this Holy month. The sense of reading His words to Him enhances your spiritual level, makes you feel being near to Allah and being loved by Him is priceless. This sense of being watched by Him with love is another precious way to enhance your spiritual level. Ramdhan would be a great opportunity to acquire the love of Allah by fasting, reading the Holy Quran and offering prayers.
