  • Purpose of Ramadan

    What is the purpose of Ramadan guys?

    Is it to ask each other how long your fasting for in your city, 10,14,16,18+ hours?

    Is it to ask each other what we had for suhoor and Iftar?

    Last time I checked this was the month of the Quran, the Quran should be in the spot light, I'm sick and tired of people on this forum and in person speaking about things that don't benefit us.

    We should be asking each other questions like how much Quran we read, how much Quran we listened too, how is Taraweeh going, etc.

    Let's all make dua that Allah grant us knowledge that will benefit us and others.

    Do not invest your hopes in anyone but Allah and do not fear anything but the consequences and repercussions of your sins!

    Uthmaan R.A

    Purpose of Ramadan

    Great thread.
    Ameen
    The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “It will be said to the companion of the Qur’an: ‘Read, and ascend, and recite as you used to recite in the [previous] world, for your status will be according to the last verse that you recite.’” [At-Tirmidhi (2914) and Abu Dawood (1464)]

      I was thinking that, too. But, then I thought, that's just how it is. People are curious, they like to talk about these things, socialize, etc. That's the nature of us.

      Though, of course, it's vain talks, at the end of the day, and we should try to prevent ourselves from them.
      Secure few moments, everyday, to reflect upon the innumerable blessings of Allah and thank Him for bestowing them upon you.

      "A person who is blessed with the ability to be grateful, shall never be deprived of barakah and increase in blessings."
      - Rasulullah (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم)‎

        What we had for i f t a r thread is useless.
        "Try to distance yourself from everything that causes you worry and sadness, so that you may always live with peace of mind and an open and tranquil heart, seeking Allah and His worship and working on your worldly and otherworldly matters, for if you try this, you will find rest.

          Some people don't live around Muslims or have any other Muslims to socialise with. Just like you might discuss these things with your friends, that's all the thread is.

          During ramadhaan people seem to feel more of a need to be connected to the wider community and it seems to be a shared experience. If you don't get that in real life, then I guess we seek it in other ways.

          Most of the nonsense posts seem to be in the what are you thinking about now thread anyway.

            Jzk for the reminder.

            I think people often consider Ibadah and Nafilah etc to be quiet personal and may not want to share it , although there is benefit in doing so.

            I like to post about iftar and sehri becuause I like to share with brothers and sisters and for them to share what they had because it generates a sense of community and connection. I personally wouldn't feel comfortable about sharing how much qur'an I recited the night before or how many tarawih I prayed or any at all. I am not sure if I would take part in one if there was one such thread. I am an avid believer that no thread on this forum is useless or vain, every thread will at least benefit one or two people otherwise no one would reply to it or go into it.

            Of course, we should all make effort to highlight the purpose and dimensions of ramadhan and I believe people have done so but just not as popular as some other issues! but this has always been the case with Ummah forum pre and post ramadhan people are more into interaction and giving opinions/debating than to exert themselves or have a productive day at ummah. Allahu alim.

            Glad to see the ball rolling, like to see alot of people complain but not many taking the lead to generate the atmosphere they desire. Insha'Allah try it :up:
            "The objective behind Shari'ah is to liberate individuals from his desires in order to be a true Abd (slave) of Allah and that is the legitimate Maslaha... Violating the Shari'ah under the pretext of following Maqasid al-Shari'ah is like the one who cares about the spirit without the body and since the body without the spirit is useless therefore the spirit without the body is useless too." ~ Imam Shatibi - The greatest intellectual founder of Maqasid al-Shari'ah

              Hide our deeds as much as we hide our sins.

              Not good idea either asking around how many pages of Quran we have read today.

              They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah will perfect His light, although the disbelievers dislike it (61 : 8)
