The month of Ramadan is that in which was revealed the Qur’an. Moreover, over 1.8 billion of Muslims aren’t eating from dawn to sunset. So, Here are some of Ramadan’s secrets, What’s and Whys. Let’s purify your body, soul, mind, & heart.
Once I watched a video speaking about human will. The speaker said that it is like a store. It needs to charge my will every time. At the end, he gave some useful tips to maintain it. Although the video was so powerful, after a while I feel I don’t even want to charge my store. Hence, my store of will became very low.
I usually have many ways to charge myself; however not all always work. Simply, we are humans. For example, it’s not a surprise to know that many authors successfully wrote about happiness or self-development, then the committed suicide. To illustrate, there is a secret put in every one of us, i.e, the soul. No one can reach it and describe its remedy except its Creator.
Besides, in Ramadan, God prescribed on Muslims to fast, from Dawn ‘Fajr’ to Sunset. It a school for recharging human will annually. Ramadan comes to say: human without goal is nothing. One void of will is dead.
Power of Soul
We only can charge this sophisticated part within ourselves, and live according to the laws of Creator. Only He, knows how it properly works. That’s why Qur’an, the Creator word, is the food and harmonious language for this soul.
Qur’an goes deep in this soul speaking with its worries, interests, and illnesses. It tells this soul about it future, and about how to save itself. Indeed, our Creator knows how powerful remedy is Qur’an. Then, he encourages us to recite, understand and apply it. In addition, He stresses on the relation between Qur’an and Ramadan to give a condensed remedy for this thirsty soul to be able to continue in this hard life! The first verses of Qur’an were revealed in this month. God says in Qur’an:
The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey – then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful.” [Quran 2:185] (1)
Always Set Goals Then Quit?
Ramadan has two main advantages to keep on a goal/challenge and recharge your will. The first is, the high spirit due to what Messenger Muhammad said:
When Ramadan begins, the gates of Jannah are opened, the gates of Hell are closed, and the devils are chained.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim] (2)
The second, is the collective good deeds that facilitates the change of soul. There is extra congregational prayer (voluntarily), extra kinship ties, and extra poor feeding. In general, Muslims are hurry in good deeds at that month.
Presents of Ramadan
- Forgiveness of sins that hinder the human from elevating his soul.
- Freedom from Hellfire; the dream of us all.
- Ability to start a new year with high spirit and full-charged will, and hence to set a goal.
