The Holy Quran is followed by all Muslims

Bismillahir Rahman Rahim

In the Name of Allah, The Beneficent and The Merciful

The month of Ramadan is that in which the Holy Quran was revealed as a guide to people and and the Criterion (2:185). By the Book that makes manifest! We revealed it on a blessed night — truly We are ever warning. In which (night) is made clear every matter of wisdom; (44:2-4).

Dear sisters and brothers:

Assalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh

We pray for spiritual and physical health by the grace of Compassionate and Merciful Allah upon all of you and that you have been recipients of His blessings during the month of Ramadan. Alhamdulillah, we thank Allah for His guidance and wisdom for us to comply with the obligation during the holy month. In the verses cited above, we are told that the Holy Quran was revealed as a guidance to people, and it made clear every matter of wisdom.

Teachings of the Holy Quran

Throughout the blessed month, among other obligatory compliances, we have endeavoured to study and research deeper into the broader meanings and understanding of the verses and implemented whatever we could. It is an obligation that must not end with Eid Al Fitr, and they should be adhered to during the rest of the year and manifested always in the future. In order to realize the significance of the Holy Book, let’s examine some of what Allah has said about it as per following examples:

“Surely this Quran guides to what is most upright and gives good news to the believers who do good that theirs is a great reward”, (17:9).

“And the Quran that We reveal is a healing and a mercy to the believers”, (17:82).

“We have made distinct in this Quran for mankind every kind of description”; (18:54 & 30:58).

“These are the verses of the Quran and the Book that makes manifest. A guidance and good news for the believers, who keep up prayer and give the due charity, and they are sure of the Hereafter”. (27:1-3).

“We have made the Quran easy to remember, but is there anyone who will be mindful?” (54:17, 22, 32 & 40).

Almighty Allah also tells us to keep up prayer, give due charity and to do good to others:

“And keep up prayer and give the due charity. And whatever good you send on ahead for yourselves, you will find it with Allah. Surely Allah is Seer of what you do” (2:110).

“They only are believers whose hearts are full of fear when Allah is mentioned, and when His messages are recited to them, they increase them in faith, and in their Lord do they trust, those who keep up prayer and spend (on good works) out of what We have given them. These are the believers truly. For them are with their Lord exalted grades and protection and an honourable sustenance” (8:2-4).

Continuing the Ramadan Spirit

During the month, we have been charitable and did whatever good that was possible. The end of fasting should not be the end of doing good and being charitable. These should be part of our daily lives, and widows, orphans and the needy should never be forgotten.

“The charitable men and the charitable women, and the fasting men and the fasting women, and the men who remember Allah much and the women who remember…. Allah has prepared for them forgiveness and a mighty reward “(33:35).

Sharing messages of the Blessed Book must continue so that others may also acquire genuine guidance and knowledge. We pray for guidance, wisdom and blessings of Merciful Allah so that we can attain piety and in-depth knowledge of the Holy Quran.

We also pray for peace, tolerance, greater understanding and goodwill among the peoples and nations of the world. We wish everyone a pleasant and enjoyable Eid Al Fitr celebrations.

Eid Mubarak to all. Allah Hafiz.
