Ramadhan

“The month of Ramadhan is that in which the Quran was revealed, a guidance to humankind and clear proofs of the guidance and the distinction; therefore whoever of you is present in the month, he shall fast therein, and whoever is sick or upon a journey, then (he shall fast) a (like) number of other days; Allah desires ease for you, and He does not desire for you difficulty, and (He desires) that you should complete the number and that you should exalt the greatness of Allah for His having guided you and that you may give thanks.” 2:185

Ramadhan is also known as “Rabi-ul-Qulub” meaning the month of spring for the hearts. Just as the earth softens in Spring to enable seeds to come to life, the human heart softens allowing Divine guidance to enter if one so wishes.
