Hungry & Thirsty for Ramadan:
Food and drink may be a means that of survival. It becomes a pleasure when eating out. Food and drink may be a means that of survival. It’s intake is reduced once on a diet. Food and drink are component of our lives. Some live to eat, whereas others eat to live. Overall, humans have a constant connection with food and drink. God Almighty states within the Qur’an:
“Eat from what Allah has provided you as good and lawful, and fear Allah in whom you believe” (Qur’an 5:88)
Ramadan is that the name of the ninth Islamic month whereby countless Muslims across the world engage in fast as one of the most pillars of the religion. God Almighty instructs able adult believers to fast for the whole month, daily from dawn to dusk. which means completely no food, drink or marital relations for the whole period of daylight, for every day of the blessed month.
One could raise, what's the purpose? Why the torture of staying hungry and thirsty (for eighteen hours this summer)? What’s the logic? Well, amongst several reasons, two stand out on behalf of me. ‘Discipline’ and ‘Sympathy’. By staying far from food and drink, something we are so familiar with throughout the rest of the year, we tend to train our souls to be disciplined. If it's possible for someone to remain away from food and drink, it's positively inherently possible to abstain from evil and sin, like lying, cheating, vulgar language and bad behaviour so on & so forth. Ramadan could be a period of coaching one’s soul, to spiritually recharge it and rejuvenate one’s awareness of God. A period of discipline indeed.
Ramadan grows sympathy into the hearts of those WHO fast collectively begins to induce a thought of how the hunger of the poor and poor really feels. this sense motivates one to always facilitate and compassionate the poor through charity and support. The Holy Quran explains,
“O you who believe, the fasts have been enjoined upon you as they were enjoined upon those before you, so that you may be God-fearing” (Qur’an 2:183)
Action and Activity:
For a dedicated believer, fasting is carried out with passion. Even though one is hungry and thirsty during the day, the sincere worshiper remains active in spiritual activities and good works. This is the very reason why this month brings great rewards. The prophetic hadith echoes before us saying, “Allah decorates His paradise every day (in Ramadan) and then says, ‘The time is near when My pious servants shall cast aside the great trials and come to me.” (Musnad Aḥmad)
Thirst and hunger for Ramadan bring nice positive modification for the dedicated believer. eating and drinking perhaps a significant a part of our lives, however abstaining from food and drink, whereas observing the islamic fasts, sure brings positive changes.
It’s not concerning what you eat, it’s concerning what’s eating you.
