Muslims everywhere must fast this month for the sake of Allah. When this takes place then everything must be done during the day on an empty stomach. The Muslims have the perseverance to perform all their tasks from going to school, working, walking, whatever they need to do without eating. In the evening they return to their mosque to attend Tarawih with the feeling that they are fully nourished they are able to continue their daily tasks.
When you are fasting you are able to think much more clearly than when you are stuffing your stomach and are over fed. While you are in a state of fasting, you are enriched spiritually, physically and yes even intellectually. You have many new benefits because now you are able to think on a higher spiritual plane. Those who fast in faith believing in the power of Allah find that they are richly rewarded with more insight to life and a better intelligence in the things that they do.
The meaningful thing about Ramadan for Muslims is the fact that it teaches one how to control their emotions and how to make of yourself a perfect Muslim. Everyone needs to know the pathway to forgiveness. Ramadan shows us the pathway to forgiveness. Muslims abstain from any form of sin during the month of Ramadan.This is the time to make yourself clean and full of the grace of Allah.
It is now time to learn of the teachings of Muhammad and bask in the knowledge that is given to us for his sake of righteousness. Meditation is a vital part of the month of Ramadan. It is important to meditate along with fasting in order to reach the highest of spiritual awareness. When you meditate every day, you will be enlightened spiritually and start to understand more about the universe around you. We are all one in the universe and the universe is all around us and within us.
The Muslims use this month of fasting to find a new awareness in their life and to help them make changes that will affect their lives for the rest of the year. It is a promise to keep when you truly believe in your faith. Muslims follow the teachings of the Koran during the month of Ramadan. The Koran to the Muslims is like the Bible to those who are not of their faith but are of the Christian belief.
Those who are of different religious beliefs watch in awe as every year the world of Muslims take the month to fast, meditate and to learn more of their own teachings. The Muslims have a strong belief in the teachings and adhere to it with all their might. It is a good thing to follow the teachings of the Koran, fast, and meditate during the month of Ramadan. The results are a beautiful thing that the whole world could learn from and perhaps someday, we will all fast and learn more of our own religious teachings.
