Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:
شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِي أُنزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنُ هُدًى لِّلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَاتٍ مِّنَ الْهُدَىٰ وَالْفُرْقَانِ
(Qur’ān 02:185). ‘Shahru Ramađāna Al-Ladhī ‘Unzila Fīhi Al-Qur’ānu Hudan Lilnnāsi Wa Bayyinātin Mina Al-Hudá Wa Al-Furqān’, ‘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.’
The month of Ramadan is a holy month. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is praising it in the Qur’an. It is the month of guidance. It is the month when the Qur’an was descended. It is a month full of Barakah. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla gives ten Barakah to one. In Ramadan, He ﷻ knows how much to give Himself ﷻ. Hundred to one, seven hundred to one, or seven thousand to one; however much He ﷻ wants, Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla gives as much as He ﷻ wills. Therefore, Shukr to Allah ﷻ, many believers appreciate this month. They perform worship and pray, they do charity and goodness. And there is a great gain in doing so.
The worship of this month is Tarawih prayer. Also, there is Zakat Fitrah. We must not forget about Zakat Fitrah. It is for every individual. Rich ones give more, and poor ones give as much as they can afford. Some people don’t have anything at all. They can give less, not necessarily as much as it is required by the Religious Affairs. They have no means. They give as much as they can, and Allah ﷻ will accept it insha’Allah.
There is Zakat then. Zakat can be given any time of year. But giving it in Ramadan brings more Thawab, and you don’t mix up. It makes a year from Ramadan to Ramadan. You give Zakat of this year and attain its virtue which is at least seven hundred to one instead of ten to one. Even if you don’t give everything all at once but put it aside and give later, you will have separated it in this month and it will be put aside without mixing it with your property. You will give it to needy people then.
Therefore, this month is a blessed month. It is a generosity of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla to Ummati Muhammad ﷺ. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla says it is the month of the Ummah. And He ﷻ gives to the Ummah from His ﷻ generosity and abundance. May Allah ﷻ help us all perform this worship and do goodness. May we not be lazy in this month.
Some people are not fasting. Some people, may Allah ﷻ protect us, have no idea about it. They have no idea about neither this month nor the year. They go by eating and drinking in vain. May He ﷻ guide them. We are not saying anything, because everything is in Allah’s ﷻ Hand. We must not criticize them but feel pity that it is not meant for them.
Shukr to Allah ﷻ for giving us this beauty, for letting us appreciate it. Appreciation is an important thing. Who doesn’t appreciate doesn’t benefit from anything. Who appreciate benefit from its worth and their ranks increase because of this worth. May Allah ﷻ make this month blessed upon us. May Allah ﷻ let us reach more beautiful days and more beautiful Ramadans. I always say, may it be together with the spreading of Islam and appearance of Mahdi ‘alayhi s-salam insha’Allah. May it be near insha’Allah.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
