Now, what exactly is the objective and purpose of fasting in Ramadhan? The answer to this question can be found in the beautiful Quran itself. Allah says, “O you who believe! Fasting has been prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, so that you may attain piety.” (Surah Baqarah Ayat 183)

Subhanallah! For the servants of Allah, to attain piety and become God fearing is our aim and objective in life and by properly observing the obligatory fasts of Ramadhan, with all its rules and etiquettes, we can be rest assured of achieving our goal.

As short as this verse may appear, in it lies the keys to a new life for us all. We are being told, fast in the month of Ramadhan for Allah, and you will become from amongst Allah’s God fearing bondsmen. However, as always, there will lie obstacles in our way and it is these that we must tackle in this month. So, how exactly will we do this? Well, firstly we need to overpower our nafs (self desires) and train it to engage in worship and excel in good deeds for this is the desire and wish of our Lord. This may seem difficult at first. How can we just fight our nafs so easily? Well there’s hope, a lot of hope, because when Ramadhan arrives the doors of Jannah are opened and the doors of Hell-fire are closed whilst the Shayateen are locked up, shackled away in chains. (As mentioned in a Hadith of Bukhari)

What all this actually means is that in the month of Ramadhan the path leading to Jahannam becomes difficult. That is why those who do not even pray the fardh namaaz on other days find themselves praying 20 rakaats of Taraweeh every night of Ramadhan, whilst those who are never seen supplicating to Allah, never seen bearing a Quran are seen weeping and crying to the Almighty. This is exactly why Ramadhan is a great chance to find Allah and make an everlasting change!

The second thing is that in this month the path leading to Jannah becomes easy; acquiring Allah becomes easy – that is another reason why the coming of Ramadhan can be a real turning point for us in our lives. It doesn’t have to be a month that comes and goes just as fast. It doesn’t have to be a month of great worship and piety that ends upon the arrival of Eid.

Rather this time it can be a month that arrives and departs leaving an effect on our hearts for life. A month that comes and leaves changing our fate, the fates of our families, and our final destiny.

Dear readers, each and every single one of us can acquire this ultimate goal. We may be young, with our whole lives still ahead of us, or we may be old with many years of a’maal accounted for already in our Book of Deeds. Whoever we are, we are all in need of guidance. We are all in need of a spiritual uplift. We do not know if we will even live for another year and be blessed with this opportunity again. How many souls were alive this time last year, and today are no longer with us?

What remorse and regret they must bear, knowing they do not even have the ability to share one good word, keep one more fast, have one last chance. So let us be wise and grab this chance of ours – this could be it. This could be our real turning point. Do not deem it impossible. Do not feel it too difficult. If we pluck our courage and light the flames of hope and will power in our hearts, we truly can make a change this Ramadhan!

A person sniffed in such a way that the mucus of his nose went down his throat. His fast will not break. Similarly, the fast does not break by sniffing and swallowing the saliva that is in the mouth.

Islahi Ijtima Karachi – Report Back Mufti Yusuf Moosagie

Radio Islam’s presenter Mufti Yusuf Moosagie attended an International Islahi Ijtima, Gathering for the Purification of the Soul, in Karachi, Pakistan. Arranged under the auspices of Khanka Imdadiya Asrafiya of Hazrat Moulan Hakeem Aktar Sahab Damatbaraktuhu and his son Moulana Mazhar Sahab. People from across Pakistan as well as from around the globe attended, including a large group from South Africa. People from India, Bangladesh, Iran, Burma, United Kingdom, Germany etc. attended too. The gathering took place over four days viz. on the 29th, 30th, 31st of March and the 1st of April. The themes of the Ijtima were the illustrious life of an outstanding scholar from the Ulama of Hind, Moulana Asraf Ali Thanwi Rahimullah and Spiritual Reformation. More than 25 lectures were delivered by senior spiritual mentors and globally renowned captivating orators. A daily Dhikr Majlis was hosted by Moulana Mazhar Sahab. A key observation that was made by the Ulama is that, in the Ummah today, there’s great negligence with regards to giving due consideration to the reformation of the nafs. This is of grave concern as it is crucial to cleanse and purify one's character if one is to attain any level of proximity to Allah. Listen

Bill, Jim, and Scott were at a convention together and were sharing a large suite on the top of a 75-story skyscraper. After a long day of meetings they were shocked to hear that the elevators in their hotel were broken and they would have to climb 75 flights of stairs to get to their room. Bill said to Jim and Scott, let's break the monotony of this unpleasant task by concentrating on something interesting. I'll tell jokes for 25 flights, and Jim can sing songs for 25 flights, and Scott can tell sad stories the rest of the way. At the 26th floor Bill stopped telling jokes and Jim began to sing. At the 51st floor Jim stopped singing and Scott began to tell sad stories. "I will tell my saddest story first," he said. "I left the room key in the car!"
