Ramadan: the Month of Blessings

Ramadan is the month of blessing and has so much good attached to it. Not only do we fast to cleanse our bodies but we fast to cleanse our souls, minds, and hearts. Fasting means to stay away from food, liquids, sins, and negativity. But Ramadan isn’t all about 30 days of fasting, or the countless attempts at memorizing quran, or staying up late to make tahajud. Although those are very important, Ramadan should be more about making ourselves better people and learning self-discipline. Ramadan isn’t a pause on our bad habits but an end to them. Another goal we should have is to get closer to Allah. In the Quran it says, “So remember me; I will remember you.” (Baqarah:152). This is one of the unbreakable promise Allah makes.
