“Ramadan is the (month) in which the Quran was sent down, as a guide to mankind and a clear guidance and judgment (so that mankind will distinguish from right and wrong)..”(Q 2:183)
Oh you who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that you many learn piety and righteousness” (Q 2:183)
Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may attain taqwaa (God-consciousness).” (Q2:183)
The Messenger of Allah (saw) said:”… whoever fasts during Ramadan out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah’s rewards, then all his past sins will be forgiven.” (Imam Bukhari).
We are excited for Ramadan and hope and pray this Ramadan is a month full of barakah (blessings), closeness to Allah, and an opportunity for you and your loved ones to gain Allah’s blessings and forgiveness. Ameen.
