Ramadan is the Holy Month of Peace

Dear Editor,
Ramadan in Islam is a month of obligatory, priers and daily fasting. It is the ninth month in the Islamic lunar calendar. Daily fasts begin at dawn and end with sunset. And thus, abstain from eating, drinking, smoking and other practices which are not allowed in this Holy Month of Ramadan during daylight and in the evening called (Eftari) in Eftari people who are observing fast start to eat small meals and visit friends and family in intent to share their Eftari with each others.

People are praying and reciting holy Quran in Mosques and homes in all around the world. This is the month that provides an opportunity for Muslims to get closer to Allah Almighty and ask for forgiveness. And, this is the month when a Muslim should be benighted from.
In addition, This is the one and only month when the people would be bestowed the very opportunity to get closer to Allah, forgiving the enemy, praying for forgiveness, because this Holy month of Ramadan is believed to be one of the most blessed and holy month of the year, which brings peace, harmony, unity and forgiveness.

The Magnificent World Event of Ramadan takes place in Makkah each year, where more than 3 million Muslims from all over the world go and spend time in worshiping and devotion to God.

Muslims are called upon to use this month to re-evaluate their lives in light of Islamic guidance. We are to make peace with those who have wronged us, strengthen ties with family and friends, and do away with bad habits, essentially to clean up our lives, our thoughts, and our feelings and ask Allah Almighty to guide those cruel people who are acting against the human law, dignity and most importantly against Islam by beheading the innocence and blasting themselves among the breadwinners of poor and vulnerable families. May Allah Almighty guide them in the real way of Islam so that peace takes place instead of bloodshed, abhorrent and violence.
Best Regards,
Saira Naaz
