Ramadan; the month of peace, friendship & worship

Ramadan is the month of worship and piety. During the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims living in each corner of the world observe fast, do good deeds and avoid bad deeds. It is a month of deep connectivity between Allah and his servants and this connectivity is tightened through heart and soul by observing fast and keeping piety. When human being deeply sees this great verdict of the Almighty Allah, they will reach to this fact that self-acquaintance is the start of knowing the Almighty Allah.
The month of Ramadan is also called the month of blessing, the month of forgiveness, the month of dignity, the month of repentance, the month of self-acquaintance and the month that gives opportunity to human beings to do all the good deeds.
It is a month during which the Holy Quran has been revealed on Mohammad (PBUH) and has one of the best night when even angels come down to earth and take good deeds of pious Muslims up. It is a month the name of which has been mentioned several times in the Holy Quran.
According to Islamic traditions, all heavenly books have been revealed during this month; therefore, the holy month of Ramadan is the month of revealing of heavenly books and the month of learning and education.
Muslims should know the philosophy of the holy month of Ramadan and observe it in a better way. It is a month of peace, friendship, unity and worship. During this holy month, the people should keep calm rather than bother his and her Muslim brother. Particularly, armed opponent groups should leave the people to worship during this holy month and avoid violence and killing innocent civilians.
According to ulema and religious scholars, the holy month of Ramadan is the month of peace and avoidance from sins; therefore, all Muslims are asked to avoid any kind of sins and bad deeds and pay attention to worshiping and doing good deeds.
During the holy month of Ramadan, insulting, harming to another Muslim brother and all kind of bad deeds are forbidden and all the Muslims are convinced to be patient and help their Muslim brothers, but armed Taliban who do not know of Islam are continually killing our countrymen even during this month that forbids even a minor bad deed.
It is quite clear that observing fast never means ‘no eating or no drinking’, but observing fast has conditions that should be observed in order to have and observe the fast at full extent. Muslims should avoid doing all unpleasant and bad deeds during all the time in particular during the holy month of Ramadan.
The holy month of Ramadan is a good opportunity for doing good deeds, working to reach peace and friendship and avoiding violence and enmity among the people in the society; therefore, we should all make effort to not lose this opportunity.
