In many homes the radio is playing almost 24 hours a day. We are listening to Quraan, nazams, talks, speech contests, and quiz competitions. The tragedy is that these programs have now taken the place of our own personal recitation of the quraan, zikr and dua. Ramadaan is a month of the Quraan. Shaikhul Hadeeth Moulana Muhammed Zakariyya Khandhelwi (rahimahullah) writes regarding the women of his household and the importance they gave to reciting the Quraan. He states that together with their house work, they managed to easily complete fifteen to twenty juz (paras) daily. Let us all try this Ramadaan to switch off all stations and increase our recitation of the Quraan, the zikr of the first kalimah and istighfaar. Some time daily should also be dedicated for dua.

   

Thirty Blank Cheques

Someone hands thirty blank cheques to us. We are only required to fill in the amount on each cheque and this will qualify us to receive that entire amount in cash. Will any of us show any in difference and return the thirty cheques blank without filling in an amount? We are given thirty “blank cheques” (days) of the blessed month of Ramadaan where the fasting persons Duaas are accepted. Why do we then send these thirty days back to Allah Ta’ala all blank, without making any Duaa? Allah Ta’ala, the Giver is there to give us, but we the takers are not there to take. Let us increase our duaas in the month of Ramadaan, especially at the time of sehri (early morning) and iftaar (when we break fast). 

   

Fasting develops Piety

“O you who believe! Fasting has been made compulsory upon you just as it was compulsory upon those before you (the Jews and Christians), so that you may develop taqwa (piety).” (Surah Baqarah, v183)

This verse highlights the love and mercy that Allah Ta’ala has for us. Allah Ta’ala has not merely instructed us to fast, but rather Allah Ta’ala has made the task easy for us by informing us that the previous nations also had to fast. Naturally if they had managed to fast, we too will be able to carry it out. Fasting develops piety. The only way to give up sin is to go against one’s carnal desire of eating, drinking and relations. This in turn weakens the carnal desire and strengthens the will-power to say “no” to any unlawful desire. Thus fasting develops self-restraint and leads us on to the pathway of piety.
