Glad tidings to all muslim sisters and brothers . Here comes the month for which we all wait for whole year. Its the month of blessings, forgiveness, empathy, patience, happiness. There are special prayers and recitations in this month, salat-ul-traweeh etc . We all know, that reward of every act is increased many folds in Ramadan. Its not just being hungry and thirsty all the day, it includes a lot of other things. “FAST “ completes when it is joined with other of its embellishments . With all the necessary components ( prayers 5 times a day, refrain from major and minor sins ) , one makes his/her fast acceptable in front of ALLAH salallah hu wa tala. And if one does some extra efforts, this increases the ajar of fast to much more times.
Program Offered by Allah:
Let us suppose FAST as a program offered by ALLAH subhana hu wa tala. Now some of its components are necessary , without which that software wouldn’t work properly. And some are “Add-ons” , they are not crucial, but if installed, can enhance the performance of software ( FAST ) and thus , improved result is obtained.
What could those necessary components be ? for example , tolerating hunger and thirst for sake of ALLAH subahana hu wa tala. This could be the main “set up “file , without which, you can’t imagine your software in running condition. Moreover there are other files you often see with software, those could be refraining from back biting, maintaining good behavior, avoiding foul language and fight, offering prayer 5 times a day. Just like a computer program! If any of these file gets deleted , program wouldn’t work properly or may be could even stop working. Similarly, if one just stays hungry and do not abides other rules associated with fast, he just bore pain of being hungry, his fast becomes use less.
Other than these compulsory files, some time we have ADD-ons. In case of fast, an add on could be keep on doing dikhr all the day, reciting various surahs, offer salat-ul- traweeh, recitation of various short duas, giving on charity and alms. All these add ons would beautify your fast.
