Ramadan the ninth month of an Islamic calendar and considered as the holy month. It is the month when Quran was revealed. This month brings great blessing and rewards of Almighty Allah with it. It is the month when Muslims are given the chance to wash of their sins and benefit from great blessings of Almighty Allah. It is the month which teaches discipline, tolerance, patience, honesty and so many other great characteristics human beings should have. Besides purifying the soul, this month also leave positive physical effects upon the human body. In this month Muslim observe fast during the day time, and besides offering Salah five times a day, offer taraweeh prayer at night. Ramadan is the time when rewards get ten times higher.

We are lucky to have this Holy month of Ramadan once again in our lives. Now it is up to ourselves how much we benefit from this great month. This is a question for every Muslim out there, Are you doing enough to get the blessings of Almighty Allah in this Ramadan? Do you observe fast, offer salah and taraweeh prayer at night? How much this month is helping you in being more patient, honest and tolerate? Are you doing enough……..What Do you think?

You talk about sucide bombing. Tell you what it is haram(unlawful) in Islam. I don't know about the statistics you've mentioned above but I do wanna ask you something. What is American Army doing in Iran and Afghanistan and whatever they do there, Is it justifiable? No, I don't think so. A so called civilized country and the super power of the world has destroyed two countries for no specific reason and has not been able to bring back peace there. What will you do when your country is being destroyed? I don't want to get more into it. This is not a political thread.

You people always highlight Islam by linking it with the acts of extremism. By the way your answer is not in any way linked to the original title of the thread.

The thread is about the holy month of Ramadan. So please talk about that and If you cannot talk well I'll request you to go some other thread.

Well Allah Almighty can do everything and there must be some reason behind the deadly floods during Ramadan which we human beings are unable to understand.

Allah is gracious, but in and by the west we all think of the Grace of common Man in an after-thought; rather than in the place of "actions speaking louder than words".

How insensitive. Would you said the same thing when New Orleans was flooded and the Americans there were stranded, homeless and dying (in some cases)?

I can't believe what you all said to this person. You should all be ashamed. Hate is a terrible thing. It will eat you away, in the end.
