Can there be any reward better than Jannah?
By Mukhtar Master – 19/5/17
The ‘why?’, or otherwise termed as ‘the purpose of existence’, is one of the greatest challenges to mankind. However, not so for Muslims, as Allah himself states quite explicitly and unambiguously, the purpose of our creation in the Glorious Qu’ran:
“I did not create the Jinns and mankind except to worship Me.”
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.
