Ramadan Kareem Mubarak With our 1000th Post!


Ramadan Kareem 2013Let us wish our beloved readers a Happy Ramadan Kareem 2013, a month full of blessings, peace, tranquility and refrainment from all self desires (The Nafs). It is 11th July today,  a time in lunar calendar when Saudi Arab is holding their Second Fast today and people in Pakistan and India are holding their first Fast. This is our 5th successful year of celebrating Ramadan with Blogosphere since 2009 and amazingly today's post marks the 1000th Blog Post on this small community blog! I was a teenager when I started serving Google blogger back in late 2008 and today running STC Network thanks to continuous love and support from all of you. Ramadan is the only month when we stop accepting New Service orders from Clients and we dedicate our full time to worship and also in serving visitors with interesting tutorials and widgets to glitter their online journals. Do you know why 2 Billion Muslims across the globe hold fasting in the month of Ramadan?

 

Importance of Ramadan for Muslims

Ramadan is the 9th month of the Islamic or Lunar Calendar. It is the month when the last and final revelation came down to Earth in the shape of Holy Quran. Muslims believe that Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) is the last and final messenger sent to mankind and Holy Quran is the last of the Devine revelations which came down in Ramadan.

"Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was revealed as guidance and clarification to humankind, and a distinction between right and wrong. So, whoever from among you witnesses the month should fast it." (2: 185

There is a night amongst the last ten odd nights of this month (i.e. 21st, 23rd, 25th... 29th) which is called Laylat al- Qadr, it's termed as the night of Power when Quran Kareem was first revealed. The following are first 5 verses which were revealed on Mohammad (PBUH):

We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power: And what will explain to thee what the night of power is? The Night of Power is better than a thousand months. Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by Allah's permission, on every errand: Peace!...This until the rise of dawn! — Sura 97 (Al-Qadr), āyāt 1-5[5]

This is the night which every Muslim looks for and searches for it like searching for a treasure. One who is fortunate enough to worship in this night will be rewarded an eternal place in Heaven.

Why Muslims Fast?

Christians hold fasting in Lent Season, Jews on 10th of Tishri, Hindus hold upavaasa and Muslims hold fasting for a full month in Ramadan. People from different religions hold fasting but the Muslim Way is completely different from the west. In existing religions, believers will drink only water for a day, or eat only fruit, or stay away from sexual relations, or leave alcohol for a period of time but in Islam Muslims are forbidden to all sorts of drinking and food and even taking medicines. Muslims are strictly guided to refrain from all sorts of unethical acts, sexual desires, useless discussion, gathering and talks with opposite-gender and dedicate all their time to worship because the aim of fasting is to get yourself closer to Allah and not to waste it in sleep, festivities and entertainment.

What are Tarawih Prayers?

Tarawih are nafal prayers which are an important part of Ramadan. They are offered each night after Isha Prayer. The aim of this prayer is to recite Holy Quran and end recitation of all its 114 chapters by the end of Ramadan. Muslims offer tarawih a total 30 days and complete entire recitation of the holy book.

Read all about it and watch live tarawih Prayer by going here:

What is Eid?

Muslims have only two Festivals and that is Eid ul Fiter (that marks the end of Ramadan) and Eid -ul- Azha (the grand sacrifice day, marking end of Pilgrimage). In EID Muslims are forbidden to hold Fast and they are commanded to wear new cloths, do required shopping and spend time with relatives by sharing love and affection. In short EID is the final gift given to Believers who refrained from all sorts of self desires just for the will of their Lord. In EID they are allowed to eat as good a food as possible and share this beautiful day of happiness with friends and family.

How TV Media has Spoiled Ramadan Spirit?

In regions like India, Middle East and Pakistan. Profit Motivated Media has spoiled the true meaning and essence of Ramadan with their Shiny Advertisement campaigns.  Those Fancy bearded TV scholars and Female Model anchors who sit and guide people with true teachings of Islam, are amongst the first who are just Muslims by name and not by practice. TV scholars who sit in front of a Female anchor and talk of modesty are only puppets who don't understand the spiritual meaning of Fasting. They have turned Ramadan into a Festival with large mixed na-mahram audiences. TV ads project Ramadan as an event where people meet and greet relatives, eat and drink luxurious food and spend most of the time in acts that are for self enjoyment. True essence of this holy month should not be interpreted from the misguided media but the Holy book and Sunnah.

Ramadan in simple words is giving more time to your God, if you are watching a TV program or sleeping, you are only wasting time and wasting those precious hours. True Muslims spend most of their time reciting Holy Quran, offering nafals, doing zikr of their Lord and sending Durood on the last Prophet PBUH. While the weak Muslims live Ramadan with their Favorite TV Program Anchors, Outgoings, Shopping and Sleeping.

    1. Dear Alexa is surely now the worst traffic metric. Since our traffic has increased it should have reached even 3K but it is getting weird day by day. The day ALEXA team started their Paid compaings for big sites, we have not seen a good rank since then.

      We quit following ALEXA now just like many other IM.

      Thank you for always being there and congrats lucky man for being in Saudi Arabia! =)

  20. Jazak Allah my dear brother Muhammad the way you narrated all about Ramadan is an ample proof of the fact that you are first a true Muslim and after that a professional blogger. In fact this is the actual demand of Islam from us to live in this world as if we are the most ideal part of it but internally our heart beat with Allah Allah and our every act must be according to the teachings of Islam. You are right this month is for earning blessings not the money. The same cause I am trying to propagate on my blog www.idealmuslim.com which I am running after learning a lot from your blog. May Allah bless you my dear brother.

  23. Ramazan Mubarak bro. I pray that you take maximum advantage from this month by worshiping more and more. You are such a great and religious person that you explained and defined everything greatly. I am really impressed by the way you pointed out how the media and TVs have spoiled the real and actual spirit of this lovely month Ramadhan.
