By Imam Yusuf Shabbir
Ramadhan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, regarded by Muslims as the holiest month.
Muslims spend the entire month in fasting and spiritual reflection. This fast from dawn to sunset is one of the five pillars of Islam.
The evenings are spent enjoying family and community meals, engaging in prayer and spiritual reflection, and reading from the Qur’an.
As Muslims, it is important to understand the rationale of fasting and the purpose so as to maximise benefit from this month.
Can you briefly explain the Islamic perspective on the night of power (Laylah al-Qadr)?
