All About Ramadan 1438-2017

All About Ramadan 1438-2017

Islam aims to transform the whole life of man into a life of worship. Fasting is the second act of worship that Allah enjoins upon the Muslim that help us come to that life of total worship.

Sawm or the Fasting means abstaining from dawn to sunset from eating, drinking and sex.

Like the prayer, this act of worship has been part of the Shari`ah given by all the Prophets. Their followers fasted as we do.

However, the rules, the number of days, and the periods prescribed for fasting have varied from one Shari`ah to another. Today, although fasting remains a part of most religions in some form or other, people have often changed its original form by accretions of their own.

O Believers! Fasting is ordained for you, even as it was ordained for those before you. (Al-Baqarah 2:183

Why has this particular act of worship been practiced in all eras?

Ramadan is earmarked for all Muslims to fast together, to ensure similar results, turning individual into collective i`badah, and suffusing the whole environment with a spirit of righteousness, virtue and piety. As flowers blossom in spring, so does taqwa in Ramadan.

The Prophet, blessings and peace be on him, said:

Every good deed of a man is granted manifold increase, ten to seven hundred times. But says Allah: Fasting is an exception; it is exclusively for Me, and I reward for it as much as I wish. (Al-Bukhari, Muslim)

So, how do we fast in Ramadan? what is true spirit of fasting as an act of worship? And what is the wisdom behind fasting? How can we reap the benefits of witnessing the blessed month of Ramadan?

In this Special Folder (All About Ramadan), we will focus on fasting and its related issues.

The Faith Revival (1): Faith Is Refuge

The Faith Revival (1): Faith Is Refuge

Every day this month Sheikh Omar Suleiman is going to us through a saying, a verse, a tip on how we can revive, renew our faith, on how to maintain it and keep it strong.

When we talk about iman (faith/belief) we firstly need to know what faith is.

From a technical perspective, we know iman is to believe in God,  to believe in the Angles, to believe on the Messengers, to believe in the Scriptures, to believe in the Day of Judgment, to believe in Divine Decree.

But iman just goes beyond that.

So, before exploring different methods of reviving and protecting our faith, it’s important to understand the meaning of faith itself.

In the first episode, Sheikh Omar Suleiman explore what faith is, particularly its role as a protector – a refuge.

The Faith Revival (2): Your Faith Wears Out

Every day this month Sheikh Omar Suleiman is going to us through a saying, a verse, a tip on how we can revive, renew our faith, on how to maintain it and keep it strong.

Think of your favorite shirt. It fades slightly each time you wash it, and will eventually wear out if you don’t take proper care of it. Faith is the same way – but unlike a piece of clothing, it’s the most valuable asset you have. Without faith, you have nothing.

Use this du`aa’ to ask Allah to renew your faith….

There is a direct correlation between the actions of the tongue with the condition of the heart. If you want to receive faith, you must first settle your heart – and if you wish to settle your heart, you must settle your tongue.

The Faith Revival (4): He Is Not A Believer When…

Every day this month Sheikh Omar Suleiman is going to us through a saying, a verse, a tip on how we can revive, renew our faith, on how to maintain it and keep it strong.

There are certain actions that are so unbefitting of a believer, that belief departs from the doer of those deeds. We may have low points in faith, but we should never allow that to push us to major sins. Death doesn’t always come to us in our best moments.
