Quranic Reflection Message Board › Ramadan Mubarak !
"Ramadan 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)...” (2:185)
Elsalam Alaikum brothers and sisters (May peace and blessings be upon all of you):
Ramadan is a sacred month wherein Almighty Allah (God) gives humanity the opportunity to achieve endless bliss through purification and striving for goodness. The English Quran study meetup would like to extend its wishes for a peaceful and blessed month of Ramadan to everyone.
Regarding Ramadan, the Quran states: "Fasting is ordained for you as it was ordained for those before you, so that you might remain conscious of God" (2:183).
This special month, is a good opportunity to reflect on the many blessings God has bestowed upon us. The biggest blessings of all is the Holy Quran itself . The month of Ramadan marks the revelation of the first verses of the Quran over 1400 years ago, and is typically marked by an increase in charitable giving. Therefore, Ramadan is an excellent time to start pondering over and reflecting upon the Quran and focus on our devotion to God.
In this blessed month, we pray that God blesses us all with an increased spirituality, a renewed hope in humanity, and a unwavering commitment to justice and truth. We send greetings to all Muslims observing Ramadan all over the globe. The holy month of Ramadan is a special time of prayer, fasting, and service commemorating the revelation of God's word to the prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) in the form of the Qur'an.
