Starting Of Ramadhan

سم الله الر حمن الر حيم
اسلام عليكم

Alhamdulillah bersyukur kehadrat Ilahi with His blessing I was able to do my first Tarawih prayer on the first of Ramadhan in my hometown. I do my prayer in Masjid Syed Sirajuddin, Kangar, Perlis.
Unlike Kedah, in Perlis we conduct only eight rakaat of Tarawih plus three rakaat of witir. Also, there are no selawat between the prayer.

Well, that just a small mater in Islam. The most important is to seek for Ramadhan Blessing. The blessed month of Ramadhan is the blessing of ALLAH swt over us. in this month, we observe fats and do ibadah without the fear of the satan because satan is captured in Ramadhan.

AL-Quran 2:185

“The month of Ramadân in which was revealed the Qur'ân, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion (between right and wrong)

Fasting in Ramadan is the ibadah we all must do if we can (not ill). But the wisdom behind fasting is not just to complete obligatory ibadah. There are many benefits attached with fasting and the month of Ramadan.

In Ramadan, we can test our conscience and nafs. Since satan is captured and he cannot be there to instruct his followers to misguide humankind, so we can take care of our nafs and our conscience. In this holy month, we can start striving to do the good and to avoid the evil.

Ramadan brings with it the plenty of rewards. The actions we do in daily life earn more reward in Ramadan.

It is up to us to take this month of great number of benefits seriously...
May Allah accept our fasting, forgive our sins, and guide us all to the Straight Path. May Allah bless us all during Ramadan, and throughout the year, with His forgiveness, mercy, and peace, and bring us all closer to Him and to each other...
