Issue 105 - Ramadan

When Ramadan comes fast is made compulsory so that you may become god-fearing

When Ramadan comes

When Ramadan comes, the door of mercy is open so do more good, recite the Quran and fast for it has been prescribed. When Ramadan comes, the door of fire is shut so desist from evil, repent and seek Laylat al-Qadr. When Ramadan comes, the devils are put in jail so do not become the agent of shaytan or cause corruption; be mindful of the rights of others and seek freedom from the fire of hell. Ramadan is a great gift from Allah; utilise it, do not squander it.


Fast is made compulsory (Baqarah 183-187)

Oh those who believe! Fasting has been made compulsory upon you, as it had been made compulsory on those before you, so that you may become fearful... So those of you who witness the month, fast within it. Those who are ill or on travel the number will be from other days. Allah intends for you ease, He does not intends for you hardship. Complete the number, exalt Allah at what He has granted you, and perhaps you may become thankful.
