Islam: The First and Last Religion (Islam and Ramadan)

Islam is the religion Quran has been teaching from the advent of time with the two main believes that there is only one God (Allah) and that Muhammad is the last Messenger of Allah. (Islam and Ramadan) “This idealism makes Islam a monotheistic religion form all of which is the world’s second-largest religion with over 1.8 billion followers or 24.1% of the global population, known as Muslims”.

The only true and most followed religion of Allah (S.W.T) is that of Islam (submission), the only religion he has asked us to go after.  (Islam and Ramadan) Islam is a perfect system of divine laws which brings man closer to Allah to lead a prosperous life here in the world and in Akhirah (afterlife).

Islam in the Quran

The Holy book of Islam is Quran which contains the sacred messages of Allah which have been revealed to Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) been sent down for the ultimate guidance of mankind and a guide for being a good human with detailed every aspect of life and death.

Quran (3:56) - "As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help."

Ramadan- A Pillar of Islam (Islam and Ramadan)

According to Islam, there are five towers, Muslims should observe to become a true Islam which is known as the five pillars of Islam.

Importance of Ramadan

Ramadan is the holiest month for seeking Allah’s blessings, Allah’s mercy in which the doors of submission gets open to achieve forgiveness of sins. Muslims performs fasting from dawn to dusk refraining from eating, drinking and avoidance of all evil endeavors.

Ramadan holds a special place for Muslims because of two factors:

·         Secondly, the 30 days of observation

Why Muslims Fast? (Islam and Ramadan)

Praise is to Allah.  He says,

“Do you who believe! Observing As-Sawm (the fasting) is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become Al-Muttaqoon (pious)” [Al-Baqarah 2:183]
