(It was) the month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion (between right and wrong). So whoever of you sights (the crescent on the first night of) the month (of Ramadan i.e. is present at his home), he must observe Sawm (fasts) that month…

Welcoming a blessed Ramadan, a month of prayer, self-reflection, and self-purification. This is a Muslim’s contribution to understanding the injustices of the world through a small act of solidarity, in fasting. It is a time for reflection on how problems within society can be harmful and how to be the change you want within the world. Ramadan allows one to rejuvenate and replenish, while praising God all along the way. Let us pray that we learn and grow exponentially throughout this month, inshallah.
