The Objective of Muslims in Ramadan

Ramadan the holy month and the month in which Allah asks to his Sinful persons to get forgiveness and mercy through the grace of Allah Almighty. As we know that in every deed we people do in our life their should have a goal and a result of the thing we do and all we want to achieve the goal in a positive manner because we want our selves to be successful in our lives. This is for the whole humanity but for Muslims it is more important then the people of other religion because as a Muslim we have a belief that we have to give the answers of our act to Allah on the MAHSHAHER or the judgment day.

So based on this every true Muslim should have an objective for their whole life and their individual deeds during every minute that they stay on earth, we know that Allah Almighty designed and created the humanity to fulfill the objective for which they were originally created, which is defined by Allah Almighty in the holy Quran.
[And I (Allah) created not the jinn and mankind except that they should worship Me (Alone). I seek not any provision from them (i.e. provision for themselves or for My creatures) nor do I ask that they should feed Me (i.e. feed themselves or My creatures).] (Adh-Dhariyat 51:56-57)

So for Muslims Allah Almighty gives another chance to come back to the religion and live their life as describe by the Prophet(pbuh) and Ramadan is the month in which Muslims get such opportunity to come back to Allah obey his order and ask for his mercy. Let your self to set some objective in the month of Ramadan and make sure that you will abstain your self from sin. These are some suggestion in order to the real objective in Ramadan.Let your objective this Ramadan be that you abstain from all that is prohibited for you by Allah. So do not cheat or lie or backbite or usurp others’ properties or gaze at what Allah has prohibited (the opposite sex). It is well-known that fasting is of three degrees:

1. Abstaining from food, drink, and intimate intercourse.

2. Keeping your ears, eyes, tongue, hands, and feet, and all other bodily organs free from sins.

3. Avoiding occupying your heart with unworthy concerns and worldly thoughts, and upholding nothing in your heart but Allah the Almighty.

So, what holds you back from drawing nearer to Allah and being one of those very few people who observe fasting of that third and special degree? So make your self ready for the Ramadan and try to follow all those practice which make Allah Almighty happy.
