Ramadhan Tips #1

*Adapted from this note. Credit to IKRAM Malaysia and the Semarak Ramadhan Facebook page!

Ramadhan is not just about fasting. Allah says in the Quran:

"Ramadhan 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)"

(Surah Al-Baqarah, verse 185)

It was in the very month of Ramadan that the Holy Quran, the last revealed Book, started descending upon Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

During this Holy month therefore, the Muslim takes himself more assiduously to the reading of the Holy Book of Allah, the standing miracle of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), the miracle which he stated would remain to testify to the authenticity of Allah's message even after he, Muhammad (PBUH) passed away.

Throughout this holy month, therefore, from every Muslim home is heard, during the day and night, the pleasant and beautiful cadences of Quranic recitation.

However, it is not merely reciting its words but trying to understand them and learn the wisdom lying in their concepts.
