Is not just about personal spiritual growth. An important aspect of fasting long hours is to help people understand the plight of the underprivileged/
We abstain from eating and drinking knowing well that at the end of the day we will have enough to eat.
However, there are many in our surroundings who are never sure about their next meal within the present hurdles represented by the price hikes, power blackouts, rareness of fuel and bread.
It is an important part of the teachings of Islam to help our less fortunate brothers and sisters.
Ramadan is observed by fasting, initiating good deeds, praying and helping those in need. It is considered as one of pillars of Islam.
The month of Ramadan beautifies the soul, it makes people equal the rich and the poor, and subconsciously all of them accept the new style. Besides the commonality of interest between the levels, and destroys the selfishness, superiority, and stand at equal distance from everyone. Furthermore, it upgrades the principle of the cooperative and makes people as one body.
Nonetheless, Ramadan has many merits, it engages seriously with us and this is indeed an opportunity for the mankind to ascend to the sky.
Unfortunately some greedy Muslims enjoy the special meals of Ramadan, but they keep it down away from the others. Or they are unable to explain the deep emotional, which their soul acquired from the spirituals.
To sum it up, Ramadan forces you to just sort of step back from life a little bit, which is quite good, it’s quite nice. Ramadan isn’t meant to be a punishment, it’s more of a beneficial thing for us.
