Ramadan – No Time To Sleep

شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِي أُنزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنُ هُدًى لِّلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَاتٍ مِّنَ الْهُدَىٰ وَالْفُرْقَانِ ۚ فَمَن شَهِدَ مِنكُمُ الشَّهْرَ فَلْيَصُمْهُ ۖ وَمَن كَانَ مَرِيضًا أَوْ عَلَىٰ سَفَرٍ فَعِدَّةٌ مِّنْ أَيَّامٍ أُخَرَ ۗ يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ بِكُمُ الْيُسْرَ وَلَا
يُرِيدُ بِكُمُ الْعُسْرَ وَلِتُكْمِلُوا الْعِدَّةَ وَلِتُكَبِّرُوا اللَّهَ عَلَىٰ مَا هَدَاكُمْ وَلَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ

وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ ۖ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ ۖ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُوا لِي وَلْيُؤْمِنُوا بِي لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ

“Ramadan is the month in which the Qur’an was revealed as a source of guidance for all people, as clear evidence of the truth and as the standard of (right and wrong). So when you see the new moon (signaling the start of Ramadan), fast the entire month, though the very ill and those traveling should fast (later when it’s more convenient to do so), for God wishes ease and not hardship. Complete the fast, and praise God for His guidance, so you can learn to be thankful.”

“When My servants ask you about Me, I am near, and I listen to every suppliant the moment he calls upon Me. So, let them also listen to My call and believe in Me so they can follow the right way.”Qur’an 2: 184-185

The instructive beauty of nature.

Atrophy of the senses.

What is the Qur’an? What are its qualities and attributes? Al-Hakīm: wisdom, judgment.

وَلِلَّهِ الْمَشْرِقُ وَالْمَغْرِبُ ۚ فَأَيْنَمَا تُوَلُّوا فَثَمَّ وَجْهُ اللَّهِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَاسِعٌ عَلِيمٌ

“To God belongs the East and the West; wherever you turn is His presence. He’s all-pervading and full of knowledge.”Qur’an 2: 115
