We Muslims are offered a month: a month full of blessings, sacrifices, repentance, and a month as a chance to recent back to our savior. Indeed I'm talking about Ramadan, and this read is all about Ramadan quotes to calm your heart and soul.
What is Ramadan?
In case you aren't aware of what Ramadan is, let me tell you. Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar; it's a month of blessings.
In this month, Muslims all around the world observe fast from fajr till the Maghrib time. The fast has a very spiritual and profound purpose, it's not just refraining from food, water, or anything edible, but a fast for a Muslim requires avoiding any terrible deed, any misconduct, slang, or abuse of any kind, any lousy thought, etc.
Yes, you can say that we cleanse our body and our inner soul and spirit while fasting in Ramadan.
Ramadan goes on for about 29 to 30 days, and then comes Eid al-Fitr, a gift from Allah for our patience in Ramadan.
These 29-30 days are all devoted to praying and asking for forgiveness, but that can be done in many forms, too, right?
What can you do other than praying and reciting our holy book?
Yes, these things are important too, and you shouldn't miss out on them, but the concept of praying or doing 'Ibadah' is widespread.
Anything that you do which reminds you of Allah is Ibadah beautiful? Sure is. The best way to carry out your Ibadah and show your devotion to Allah is to spread his message in various ways.
Let me give you an example, sharing Ramadan quotes to your loved ones and letting them know of things they might never know about this holy month.
Sounds like a plan? Then let's dig into some beautiful Ramadan quotes and their meaning.
Yes, my dear Muslims, just like reciting the Quran, whatever positive deed you think of carrying out, the reward or Ajr for that deed is multiplied.
Coming back to the Holy Quran, it has such significance in the month of Ramadan because the revelation of our holy book was completed on our Prophet PBUH in this sacred month.
So make sure you recited at least one verse a day for your spiritual healing.
Indeed. There are times when we want to carry out a good deed, but something in us stops us, or the circumstances are not suitable, or we are just not willing to spend extra energy on it.
It's okay if that's happened to you before, you can make it up for that time in Ramadan. You see, people often search for ways to conduct good deeds in Ramadan due to the multiplied rewards.
One good deed, second, third, they get stuck in a cycle, and then even after Ramadan ends, they continue to make a positive change in themselves because now it's a habit.
This month comes to blossom that good in your heart.
Did you ever do something foul that you are now ashamed of? Have you ever broken somebody's trust and gave them even a little bit of heartache, and now you are scared if that contributed to you gaining access to hellfire?
Well, don't worry because Allah gives you a chance to repent every single year for 30 days. he saves people every night from their destiny to meet hellfire if they show genuine repentance.
Now we aren't perfect human beings, and we all make mistakes; maybe we did make some mistakes that were written in our 'bad deeds.' Well, Ramadan is a time to remove them for good.
For most people, Ramadan might be a month with a reward at the end but is it just that simple? Of course not. Ramadan is to change your habits, to keep that change in place, and to strive for a better future as a better person and pious Muslim ahead.
If you pursue yourself to change even a little like a Muslim, then you would understand that when Ramadan ends, a new spiritual journey awaits you, a new life awaits you.
A life where you care about people, where you are a better Muslim, and once you acknowledge that, then the Jannah will be a piece of cake for you.
How? Should you fast every day? Yes, but not a fast of food and beverages but a fast that derives you far away from the wrongdoings.
What will happen then? Your Akhirah will turn into your Eid, which means you will be able to achieve Jannah. Isn't that beautiful?
Now that you already feel a little healed let's move on to things to avoid in Ramadan as a woman.
Things to Avoid in Ramadan!
We all know to refrain from food, drinks, sexual activities with our spouses in Ramadan from suhoor to iftar. But what else to refrain from?
Applying nail polish, yep, because you can't perform Wudu, making it haram, but it looks so pretty, right?
I have a solution for you; you can try to buy from 786 Cosmetics; they are a worldwide seller manufacturing breathable halal nail polish.
This means water and oxygen can pass through those nail colors, making it perfect for Wudu. Also, they contribute to saving refugees, so you know your money is going to some good.
You can try out their beautiful Isfahan color in Ramadan, a beautiful touch of mauve.
