Ramadan Mubarak to all Muslim nations in the world praying for them all the best and Blesses of GOD.
The Holy Month of Ramadan has a special importance in the Islamic calendar. As the HOly Prophet Muhammad (pbup) said: "it is Allah's Ow month" It is the chief of all months and the most glorious one. Fasting is one of the important pillars of Islam and in the month of Ramadan fasting has been made obligatory for all adults sane muslims.

By fasting during Ramadan, a muslim besides discharging an obligation imposed upon him by ALLAH, becomes become entitled to great reward in the hereafter.
Fasting is an article of worship,the knowledge about the performance or otherwise wherteof rests only with ALLAH and the person concerned. Hence, it is Allah alone who will reward that person for it. on the Day of judgement.

The blessings of Ramadn are not for fasting only,because the performance of all sorts of worship and good deeds during this month is also a great source of Divine favor.The revelation of the Holy Quraan commenced during this special month and therefore it is the duty of every muslim to read and understand the meaning of the Holy Qyraan and bthereby gain an insight into the Divine secrets enshrined therein. It brings peace and illumination to the mind and imparts purity to the soul.

Ramadan is the month of fasting, intensive prayer, sacrifice and Divine worship.Throughout this month a devout muslim fasts during the day in the true sense of the word, that is he denies himself food and water, but as expalined by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), exercises strict control over his tongue, eyes,ears,thoughts and deeds and does everything possible to seek the pleasure of Allah.

The Life of Prophet Muhammad By Mohammed Marmaduke Pickthall


The Prophet’s Birth

Muhammad, son of Abdullah, son of Abdul Muttalib, of the tribe of Quraysh, was born in Makkah fifty-three years before the Hijrah. His father died before he was born, and he was protected first by his grandfather, Abdul Muttalib, and after his grandfather’s death, by his uncle Abu Talib.
As a young boy he traveled with his uncle in the merchants’ caravan to Syria, and some years afterwards made the same journey in the service of a wealthy widow named Khadijah. So faithfully did he transact the widow’s business, and so excellent was the report of his behavior, which she received from her old servant who had accompanied him, that she soon afterwards married her young agent; and the marriage proved a very happy one, though she was fifteen years older than he was. Throughout the twenty-six years of their life together he remained devoted to her; and after her death, when he took other wives he always mentioned her with the greatest love and reverence. This marriage gave him rank among the notables of Makkah, while his conduct earned for him the surname Al-Amin, the “trustworthy.”

The ProPhet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "Seven kindsof people will be sheltered under the the shade of ALLAH on the Day of Judgement....

They Are:



1.A Just Ruler

2. A young man who passed his youth in the worship and service of ALLAH ........

3.One whose heart is attached to the Masjid

4.Two people who love each other for the sake of ALLAH

5.A man who is invited to sin.......but declines, saying "i fear ALLAH"

6. One who spends his charity in secret, without making a show

7. And one who remembers ALLAH in solitude so that his eyes overflow (with tears)

What is Islam?

The name of the religion is Islam, which comes from an Arabic root word meaning "peace" and "submission." Islam teaches that one can only find peace in one's life by submitting to Almighty God (Allah) in heart, soul and deed. The same Arabic root word gives us "Salaam alaykum," ("Peace be with you"), the universal Muslim greeting.

Who is a Muslim?
A person who believes in and consciously follows Islam is called a Muslim, also from the same root word. So, the religion is called "Islam," and a person who believes in and follows it is a "Muslim."

How Many and Where?
Islam is a major world religion, with over 1 billion followers worldwide (1/5 of the world population). It is considered one of the Abrahamic, monotheistic faiths, along with Judaism and Christianity. Although usually associated with the Arabs of the Middle East, less than 10% of Muslims are in fact Arab. Muslims are found all over the world, of every nation, color and race.

Who is Allah?
Allah is the proper name for Almighty God, and is often translated merely as "God." Allah has other names that are used to describe His characteristics: the Creator, the Sustainer, the Merciful, the Compassionate, etc.
Muslims believe that since Allah alone is the Creator, it is He alone that deserves our devout love and worship. Islam holds to a strict monotheism. Any worship and prayers directed at saints, prophets, other human beings or nature is considered idolatry.
