Being a Muslim it is our duty to follow all the aspects and teachings of Islam which we got from the Qur'an and those we learn from the hadith of Prophet(pbuh). The Qur'an and hadith teach us how to behave with our family and teaches us the norms and rules which every person need follow being a member of a family.
In Today’s fast and global world we have easily neglect all the requirements of a family and neglected to think about the needs of family and our rule in a family, after all, who can cope with our fluctuating temperaments as we struggle to cope with certain daily issues that come to test us? Misunderstandings ensue when we get all too caught up with the need to provide, the need to learn, and the desire for better, causing us to fall from the grace of our loved ones.
Without realizing it, family members become strangers to each other, slowly growing apart. Our homes become hotels where we just come to visit, all of those things develop because we are not putting any efforts and time to be together, Ramadan is the month which make all the family members tied and it is only Ramadan in which most of us will sit together to have a meal whether it is the meal of sahur or the meal of iftar.
Ramadan is the month in which all of us will sit together and this is time when all the members of family sit accordingly and this is the time in which children gets benefits with keeping touch with their family like aunts, uncles and cousins and particularly grandparents. We know that everyone wants give love to their grandparents but because of the schedule they can’t make it, but Ramadan is the month which offer you a opportunity to love ones grandparents give love and show attraction towards children of the house and all these joys are there because of the holy month of Ramadan.
According to one philosopher “A family grows stronger and closer with acceptance of one another, respect of differences, open and accurate communication, assertive and non-aggressive expression of emotions, love, freedom and space to grow, trust, time and effort invested, and the will to make it work.”
Enjoy the spiritual month of Ramadan with your family.
