Today is the 27th day of Shaban 1442 AH, the seventh month of the lunar calendar. Ramadan is coming soon, approximately 4 days away. This is a time in which we value the revelation of the Quran to the Prophet Muhammad(ﷺ). It would serve one wisely to use this time to prepare for the period of Ramadan and in turn to similarly employ the time of Ramadan as a season of perfecting the balance of daily habits to enrich our lives. We also celebrate Islamic Heritage Month in April, a time to be proud of the past stories and fabric that makes the stories. A time to share the culture with those around us unabashedly. But should this not be always as well. What better time than Ramadan than to take this imperative to do just that.
Verse of the Day –[Al-Ma’ida 5:46-47] “In their footsteps, We sent Jesus son of Mary, fulfilling the Torah that preceded him; and We gave him the Gospel, wherein is guidance and light, and confirming the Torah that preceded him, and guidance and counsel for the righteous. So let the people of the Gospel rule according to what Allah revealed in it. Those who do not rule according to what Allah revealed are the sinners.”
Hadith of the Day- The people of the Book used to read the Torah in Hebrew and then explain in Hebrew and then explain it in Arabic to the Muslims. Allah’s Messenger(ﷺ) said (to the Muslims). “Do not believe the people of the Book, nor disbelieve them but say, “We believe in Allah and whatever is revealed to us, and whatever is revealed to you.”
