Ramadan 2006

Alhumdulillah, the month of Shaban is now upon us and we have less than a month left to go to the blessed month of Ramadan.

What is Ramadan?
Ramadan is the 9th month of the Islamic calendar and during this month Muslims abstain from food, drink, smoking and marital sex during daylight hours (from the break of dawn until sunset). When asked by Non Muslims as to why we fast during Ramadan, remember when responding that the primary reason is that it has been declared Fardh (obligatory) upon every adult, sane and healthy Muslim and is a form of worship. Fasting in Ramadan is one of the 5 pillars of Islam. All other reasons such as it teaches us patience, empathy for the hungry etc are secondary.

The month of Ramadan is even more so blessed for the Muslims as it was in this month the Holy Qur’an was revealed. Our scholars and teachers have already started telling us of the virtues and blessings of Ramadan and how the Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) used to await and prepare for the coming of Ramadan. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to so eagerly await the arrival of the month of Ramadhãn that from the time the moon of Rajab was sighted he would make the following Duã:
“O Allah, Bless us in the month of Rajab and Sha’ban and cause us to reach Ramadhan.”

Please visit the Haq Islam Ramadan resources page below for some great articles on Ramadan and how to prepare for it. Inshallah, more and more will be added to it over the course of the next few weeks for us to utilise this coming Ramadan.

Ramadan 2006 will start in the UK on Friday (night) 22nd September. (1st fast on Sat.) [info. updated on 22/9] Please check with your local Masjid for times of Salaah, Suhur and Iftar.

Please make dua that Allah allows us to see the blessed month of Ramadan and allows us to utilise the blessed month to amass and add to our good deeds and to safeguard ourselves from hellfire in the hereafter.
