Only one or two days at the most and Ramadan will come , ISA , it is a month that Muslims wait for , where the rewards are multiplied and God's forgiveness and mercifulness is the most.
Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said when one Ramadan came:"A blessed month has arrived. Observing it in fasting is mandated on you (the believers). During this month, the gates of Paradise will be opened and the gates of Hellfire will be closed. The evil ones (Shayaatin) will be handcuffed. In it there is one night, during which worship is better than worship in a thousand months. Whoever is denied its blessings has been denied the biggest blessing."
(Ahmed, Nasaae, and Bayhaqi)
People everywhere suppress their own needs in terms of foood and drink till the dawn , not only in terms of food and drink , they try to behave as descent as possible , trying t behave in the proper behavior that Muslims should conduct so that this wont offset their fasting and to take the full reward from God. It is a great feeling of unity of how all the Muslims all over the world are doing the same good deed at the same time and enjoying the God's blessing ISA of that month.
The only One who knows that you are really abstaining is Allah, the Almighty. It is easy to pretend to be fasting; while in hiding, you may eat or drink. Thus, fasting is considered a special worship.
It has been reported by the way of Abu Hurairah (raa) that the Prophet (PBUH) reported that Allah (SWT) said in a Hadith Al-Qudsi: "All services of the son of Adam are for him except fasting. It is for Me, and I will reward him for it."
Fasting is a shield. On the day you fast, do not use obscenity, nor yell at others, nor act ignorantly towards them. However, if anyone abuses you verbally or attempts to draw you to fight with him, say 'I am fasting'
Knowing that, that the reward is much more in Ramadan , People run in doing chraities and feed poor people during their Fetar meal at the dawn. They pray for longer times (taraweeh) night prayers , worshiping God by all means. Even though when we invite people and relatives , we renew our intensions that this is fostering the relations between relatives and we are feeding fasting people as well.
It is an amazing feeling how much is good inside us and we try to run after each other , racing on how much we can do from the good deeds and that God would accept them ISA.
In Ramadan, People who behave and encouaged to behave well and do good deeds should be some how got used to the discipline behavior and try to act in their same behaviors or even close to it, after Ramadan ending, because we are all the year and forever God's slaves.
I can't wait for it to come ISA, and looking forward to make use of it peoperly enshaaAllah and that God would help me in that and hoping that all our needs to be fullfilled and for all the Muslims all over the world. And that God would accept us ISA.
