Ramadan is the holy month and a golden opportunity for muslims to earn enormous blessings and rewards. It is the month in which Muslims perform prayers and good deeds with greater intensity and frequency compared to what they do in the normal days.

However, many prominent people around the world have congratulated and wished the Muslims a spectacular Ramadan session. Amongst these prominent people is Theresa May who is the new Conservative Party leader and second female prime minister in United Kingdom. She recently congratulated and wished all Muslims a happy Ramadan:

“Ramadan is a unique and special time for Muslims in Britain and around the world. It is a time for them to renew their faith in God and increase their devotion and spirituality. A time when, despite the long summer days, Muslims across Britain will find strength through devotion to fulfil one of the five pillars of their religion.”

She added:

“Ramadan fosters a strong sense of community spirit, reflected in the way mosques open their doors and welcome people of all faiths and none to share in the Iftar meal – something I have experienced in my own constituency of Maidenhead. It is an important chance for people from all walks of life to meet together, discuss and share experiences with their neighbours, and to increase familiarity and foster friendships.”

“This Ramadan, let us celebrate the way in which this festival of peace, reflection and religious devotion brings people closer together. And let us say to Muslims here in Britain and across the world, Ramadan Kareem,” she concluded.

The Muslim’s holy and powerful book explains that the act of goodness is very key during Ramadan. Everyone is expected to wear a cap of goodness so as to receive the blessings that come with it;

Whoever draws near to Allah during it (Ramadan) with a single characteristic from the characteristics of (voluntary) goodness, he is like whoever performs an obligatory act in other times. And whoever performs an obligatory act during it, he is like whoever performed seventy obligatory acts in other times.” (Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah)

Muslims are expected to always remember Allah, perform prayers, be charitable, exhibit good manners, show love, feed a fasting person, recite the Quran, forgive amongst other good deeds during this spectacular period in order to receive blessings from God.
