Ramadan Diary: Post #1

Assalam u alaikum!

SubhanAllah.  Allah has blessed us with Ramadan.  May we be forgiven for all our sins, may our patience and strength bring us closer to Allah, and may we all be blessed with all that is best for us this month.  Ameen.


I’ve decided to start blogging in this blessed month in order to create a Ramadan diary—a diary that will be the start of my spiritual journey to share with Muslims and non-Muslims. 


I believe that you learn best when you share your knowledge with others, therefore my purpose especially during this blessed month, will be to share Quranic readings, Islamic articles, Islamic lectures, and anything else that inspires me.


May Allah accept this little effort of mine.  Ameen.

As the first day of Ramadan, I’ve started to listen to Quran recitation with English translation from Quran Explorer—a great place to listen to Quran audio online without having to download anything.


The following are verses from surah Baqarah about fasting in the month of Ramadan:
O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you, even as it was prescribed for those before you, that ye may ward off (evil); (183) (Fast) a certain number of days; and (for) him who is sick among you, or on a journey, (the same) number of other days; and for those who can afford it there is a ransom: the feeding of a man in need - but whoso doeth good of his own accord, it is better for him: and that ye fast is better for you if ye did but know - (184) The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for mankind, and clear proofs of the guidance, and the Criterion (of right and wrong). And whosoever of you is present, let him fast the month, and whosoever of you is sick or on a journey, (let him fast the same) number of other days. Allah desireth for you ease; He desireth not hardship for you; and (He desireth) that ye should complete the period, and that ye should magnify Allah for having guided you, and that peradventure ye may be thankful. (185) And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. (Surah 1, Verse 186)
