Why is mankind following the deceived desires that bring only mischief to the entire human race?

The month of Ramadan is upon us once again, newly opening the doors for the souls to enter and renew its commitment towards its purpose as it has been continually exposed by its desires and corrupted instincts.

So into the operating room it enters for the purification from the evil of the soul that calls for the bad and from the pressures and the whisperings of the Shaytan.

It is the month of fasting that stretches its hands to the sinners and the misguided ones so it can help to free them from their evil diseases that has been the cause of mischief and corruption.

From here, the ill person must confess to his illness and must know what type of illness he has, and to take the suitable medicine.

The month of Ramadan is the pharmacy that contains the different medicines of the different diseases.

Allah Almighty says: “O you who have attained to faith! Fasting is ordained for you as it was ordained for those before you, so that you might attain God-consciousness.”

The month of fasting teaches those who have pride to humble themselves.

It also teaches you to be sincere and to be devoted to the worship of Allah, as the Prophet (S) says in the hadith, where Allah says: “Fasting is for Me and I am the one who rewards for it.”

It is the month of fasting that teaches people self-restraint, especially those who let their tongue loose with foolish talk.

Sometimes, one lies to increase the corruption amongst those who are around him, and sometimes one backbites to increase the hatred between the people.

So the month of Ramadan teaches you to fast and keep away from the forbidden foolish talk as the Prophet Muhammad (S) said, “When any of you is fasting, he should neither indulge in obscene language nor should he raise his voice.”

It’s the month of fasting which teaches those whose anger has controlled them and forced them to the wrong doings to control their anger and to forgive those who oppress them.

The Prophet (S) said: If someone attacks you or abuses you, say “I am fasting.”

It is the month of fasting that tells all those who are far away from their Lord that indeed, Allah was the cause of their existence and the cause of all the bounties sent upon them.

The month of Ramadan teaches us to be with Allah and to get closer to Him with our actions and words, to increase from the recitation of the Quran with thinking and contemplation into its meaning, and to remember Allah which brings the most ultimate content in our hearts that cannot be compared to any other worldly needs and wants.

Allah Almighty says: “And when my servants ask you (O Muhammad) concerning me, then answer to them I am indeed near, I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls on me.

So let them obey me and believe in me so they maybe led alright.”

We welcome this month of fasting with open arms, and praise is due to Allah that brought this month to us to purify our souls, correct our actions, and to guard and control our words and tongues. And all thanks is due to Allah for such a beautiful blessing.
