Take a bite out of this! Ramadan Series: Day18

Friday, August 19, 2011

The Last Third
Muslims also believe that the last ten days of Ramadan are the holiest of all, and try to make even greater efforts at that time to increase their worship. The holiest night of all, Laylat Al-Qadr, roughly translated as the Night of Power, falls on one of the odd numbered nights of the last ten days. Laylat Al-Qadr, is such an important night that Allah describes it in the Qur’an as being better than one thousand months, meaning that worship done on this night is worth more than worship done in a thousand months.
In the last ten days of Ramadan, some retreat to the mosque to perform Itikaf (seclusion) at the local mosque, a period of intense reflection and devotion, seeking guidance and forgiveness, and reading the Quran.

    Women can also seclude themselves in a room in their own home if only for an hour of concentrated worship and remembrance of Allah,swt.

Ramadan is also the month of charity. The Prophet Muhammad said, “…Whoever draws nearer (to Allah) by performing any of the (optional) good deeds in (this month), shall receive the same reward as performing an obligatory deed at any other time; and whoever performs an obligatory deed in (this month), shall receive the reward of performing seventy obligations at any other time. It is the month of patience, and the reward of patience is Paradise . It is the month of charity, and a month in which a believer’s sustenance is increased. Whoever gives food to a fasting person to break his fast shall have his sins forgiven, and he will be saved from the Hell-Fire, and he shall have the same reward as the fasting person, without his reward being diminished at all.” (Reported by Ibn Khuzaymah)

Virtues of Fasting
The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said, “Indeed, anyone who fasts for one day for Allah’s Pleasure, Allah will keep his face away from the (Hell) fire for (a distance covered by a journey of) seventy years.”
He also said: “The sleep of a fasting person is regarded as an act of worship, his remaining silent is regarded as glorifying God, the reward for his good deeds is multiplied, his supplications are accepted, and his sins are forgiven.”

Fasting is an act of deep personal worship to God in which Muslims seek to raise their level of God-consciousness. The act of fasting redirects the heart away from worldly activities and towards the remembrance of God. Muslims focus during this month on strengthening their relationship with the Creator. It is a time for spiritual reflection, prayer and doing of good deeds. Fasting is intended to inculcate self-discipline, self-restraint and generosity

One of the ways Muslims get closer to the Qur’an during Ramadan is through a long congregational prayer known as Taraweeh that is offered in the late evening after the breaking of the fast. During this prayer it is customary that the entire Qur’an is recited over the course of the entire month, by a person called a Hafiz (Arabic, meaning protector).
A Hafiz is someone who has memorized the entire Qur’an, word for word, cover to cover. Since it was first revealed over 1400 years ago it is through the many Huffaz (plural of Hafiz) of the Qur’an that God has protected the authenticity of this Holy Book.

    Subhannallah it's a miracle indeed how a hafiz preserves the whole quran in his/her heart. No other book can be memorized in such a way word for word.
