Ramadan Session 2013

                                                           Amatullah Sharif

         Ramadan is the month in which was sent down The Qur’an, as a guide to humankind, also clear signs for guidance and judgment between right and wrong. So every one of you who is present at his home during that month should spend it in fasting, but if anyone is ill or on a journey, the prescribed period should be made up by days later. Allah intends every facility for you; He does not want to put you to difficulties. He wants you to complete the prescribed period and to glorify Him in that He has guided you; and perchance you shall be grateful”.  Surah 2: Al Baqarah (The  Heifer) Ayat 185.
