Blessings of the Holy Month Ramadhan
It is narrated from Abu Hurairah(R.A) that the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of ALLAH be upon him) said: When Ramadhan comes, the gates of Paradise are opened and the gates of Hell are closed and the Shayatan’s are bound. (And in one narration, instead of “Abwab Jannat”, the word is “Abu Rahmat”).
(Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim)
~The effect and character of fasting has been mentioned in the Qur’an itself with clarity and clarity. “لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ” means that the purpose of this command is to create piety in you.
Allah Almighty has made man the prescription of spirituality and bestiality, or in other words, the prescription of divinity and bestiality. The luminous essence of spirituality and divinity is found in the nature of ALLAH which is the attribute of the high angels.
The main purpose of the ritual of fasting is to make the animal of humanity obedient to the commands of God and obedience to the requirements of faith and spirituality. And since this is one of the special purposes of Prophethood and Shari’ah, fasting has been prescribed in the first Shari’ah as well.
