Ramadan- The holy month of fasting is starting

The holy month of Ramadan is starting all over the world tomorrow and I want to wish the whole Muslim Ummah the blessings of this holy month.

Most Muslims fast the entire month of Ramadan and also put in extra effort to increase in good deeds by giving charity, feeding the poor, and behaving in an exemplary way. Allah doesn’t need us to starve ourselves and this fasting helps us attain spiritual purity. Also, we get to understand the meaning of true hunger that those who don’t have food to fill their bellies, feel.

May we all be the best we can be during this holy month, and carry it forward in the year ahead. Aameen.

  1. Dear, dear Sadje,

    Ramadan Kareem to you and yours my dear friend.
    What a beautiful month of spiritual awakening.

    And what proves that we are all tied through a common thread of love is that Navroz, the Parsi New year was yesterday, Ugadi, Navaratri- fasting for Goddess Durga for 9 days, and many more, including the Hindu new year calendar and Spring Equinox all starts now.

    Did you feel the tremors of the earthquake yesterday at Pakistan? We did for 3/4 minutes here in Northern India, but fortunately it subsided and was less of a scare. Our doors and windows were rattling and fans and fixtures were swinging. Phew!

    Happy tidings and God speed dearest. ❀

    1. Thanks Natasha. Yes we all are tied together as one humanity.
      It was quite a few anxious seconds when everything was swinging with the movement of the quake. We had a few deaths and destruction of property too. I’m glad you’re safe.

  2. Wishing you and your family peace over Ramadan (not exactly sure how to express my wishes for your holy month).

    I hadn’t heard about the earthquake. I’m sorry your country has suffered. I hope you and your family are all safe. Bx

  3. Hello, Sadje! I appreciate your message of good wishes to the Muslim community as they embark on the holy month of Ramadan. It’s heartening to see people from different faiths and backgrounds coming together to offer support and goodwill to one another. I also appreciate the insight into the purpose behind fasting during Ramadan – not simply to deprive oneself of food, but to attain spiritual purity and gain a deeper understanding of the struggles faced by those who go hungry on a daily basis.

    Your message is a reminder to me that we can all strive to be better individuals and make a positive impact on the world around us. Whether it’s through acts of charity, kindness, or simply behaving in an exemplary way, we can all make a difference in the lives of those around us.

    I am grateful for your message and I join you in wishing the Muslim Ummah the blessings of this holy month. May we all be inspired to carry forward the lessons learned during Ramadan throughout the rest of the year.

    May the holy month of Ramadan bring you and your loved ones an abundance of blessings, joy, and spiritual fulfillment. As you embark on this sacred journey of fasting and increased devotion, may your heart be filled with love, compassion, and kindness toward all. May your prayers be answered, your good deeds multiplied, and your soul enriched with the blessings of Allah. Wishing you a Ramadan Kareem filled with peace, love, and happiness. Ramadan Mubarak! 😊

  5. Ramadan marks when Allah sent the angel Gabriel to Prophet Muhammad to reveal the beginnings of what would later become the Quran, the Islamic holy book, in 610 AD. I hope you enjoy your holiday, if that is appropriate for me to say.
