Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmathullah
We are once again blessed to celebrate in the holy month of Ramadan this year 2013. We send Ramadan greetings and prayer on behalf of all the believers and may this holy and blessed month bring limitless mercy upon the believers and synchronization, patience and integrity for all of humanity.
The holy month of Ramadan is not only the month of mercy & forgiveness, but also the month of repentance and acceptance of prayers. Accordingly we all should make special prayers as Taraveeh, more of Nawafil, tahajjud (Mid night prayer), supplications and recitation of the Holy Quran. We should make a great effort to increase tasbeehat and istaghfar as much as we can during this month.
Ramadan is also the month of charity and compassion for each other, and a month of giving Zakat and Sadaqat to anyone in need. So give in charity to all your brothers and sisters who are less fortunate today and are in dire need of food, medical, water, education, shelter in your community and through out the world.
Ramadan has a strong social foundation to show kindness and love to our non-Muslim community as well. Islam gives us a strong message of fairness and empathy not just in the holy month of Ramadan. It is a universal message that links all humanity.
We ask Allah subhanahu wa ta�ala to help us worship Him, observing the fast with all its night rituals, show us the way to acts of obedience, and make us focus our practice to be better individuals towards the betterment of humanity.
