Understanding Ramadhan

In the Holy Qur'an, Ramadhan described in Albaqarah: 185:

"Ramadhan is the (month) in which was sent down the Qur´an, as a guide to mankind, also clear (Signs) for guidance and judgment (Between right and wrong). So every one of you who is present (at his home) during that month should spend it in fasting, but if any one is ill, or on a journey, the prescribed period (Should be made up) by days later. Allah intends every facility for you; He does not want to put to difficulties. (He wants you) to complete the prescribed period, and to glorify Him in that He has guided you; and perchance ye shall be grateful"

In this holy month of Ramadan all Muslims in the world will perform a special prayer that is eagerly awaited in their lives. Muslims will conduct a month-long fasting and in the evening will be filled with other devotions such as reading and listenning the Qur'an and tarawih prayer or evening prayer (evening shalat).

One special thing that is expected by Muslims in Ramadlan is a special night is Laylat qodar. If the Muslims worship on the night of Laylat Al qodar right, then he will receive goodness and reward equal to a thousand months or equal to 82 years of his life. This is described in the Quran Sura Alqodr:
  1. We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power:
  2. And what will explain to thee what the night of power is?
  3. The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.
  4. Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by Allah´s permission, on every errand:
  5. Peace!...This until the rise of morn!
Those who perform fasting in the month of Ramadan will have two pleasures is when breaking at the time of Maghrib (evening) and when meeting with God one day. There are so many virtues that can be achieved by a Muslim in this holy month, even many of those who missed this month with great expectations and they were reluctant to leave the month.

May this Ramadan we all be blessed and forgiveness of God. Amin.
