Ramzan month is always very important in Pakistan and celebrated with full devotion towards God. It is very holi months for muslims. Every body try to keep fast all the month. Even we see child of age 7 are ready to keep fast.


Mosques are full with God lovers, who pray whole month.
At the time of Sehri and Aftari, there is a kind of fair everwhere. Every body is awake up early morning.
At the time of Aftari, people send food to neighbours to open the fast.

Many more exiting things, that I dont have words.

whatever sahiba said is very true. But I would like to tell the flip side of it as well. Although the whole country is soaked in the sacred/spiritual feelings of Ramadan but as soon as we all observe the Eid ul Fitar's moon, mosques are deserted, there remain no spiritual feelings left in people. Then the bazaars/markets which were filled with the spirit of fasting and aftar then are preoccupied by people who somehow are looking for sin, what a shame. Hope it changes very soon.

Anyway, there used to be a jewish leader who once said that, "when the masjids (mosques) are equally crowded in the salah of Fajar on an ordinary day as they are crowded in the salah (prayer) of Jumm'ah, then it will mark the start of Muslim uprising and they will outclass every other nation".

some great goals for this Ramadan

With the start of Ramadan, t his is the tiem for us to prepare ourselves for the whole month of Ramadan. Here are a couple of ideas to help make it special this year.

Eat, drink and be moderate

Almost all of us do it - once Iftar time hits, we just keep plowing food and drink into our mouths till it's hard to move afterwards. And those of us who do it know this is totally contrary to the spirit of Ramadan, through which we're supposed to learn self-control not self-indulgence. Let's try to stick to the Prophetic rule on eating: fill our stomachs with one-third food, one-third water and one-third breathing space, even in Ramadan.

Donate in charity

The Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, was always generous but even more so in Ramadan. Let's open our hearts and dig a little deeper in our wallets this year. Whatever you can give, it's the intention that counts.

Memorize 4 new Surahs
Memorizing the Quran often seems like a daunting task. But the key is doing it in small bites. Since there are four weeks in Ramadan, try to memorize one new Surah a week. Start off with a short, easy one. Once you've started, you'll build momentum and may even want to memorize a longer one the following week.

Go to Tarawih prayers

Post-Iftar, the first urge is to sleep after an exhausting day. But try your best to head out to the mosque for Tarawih prayers. Praying alone is wonderful, but doing it in congregation is fantastic. The community spirit is part of Ramadan's blessings. Don't miss it this year. If going every day is not possible, try going at least one week.

Attend the Tarawih prayer in which the recitation of the Quran will be finished

Attend to not only hear part of the Quran's recitation in prayer, but also participate in the heart-rending Duas that follow it.

Stop swearing and/or backbiting

It's hard not to shoot our mouths off when someone's upset us. Whether we utter those four-letter words or backbite about someone to our family and friends, we know this isn't the God-approved way of letting off steam. In Ramadan, when we want to build our spirituality, we've got to wage Jihad against our bad habits.

Try this: get a box and every time you catch yourself swearing or backbiting put some money in it. It could be a buck or less. The point is to choose an amount that makes it feel like punishment.

At the end of the month send the money to a charity or buy a gift for the person whom you've backbitten the most against.

Call/email your relatives

You'd think that given the easy access to email, competitive long-distance calling rates, phone cards, etc. these days, we'd keep in touch with family and friends more often. But the opposite seems to be the case, as we get caught up in life's "busyness."

Strengthening ties with family members and keeping in touch with friends is part of our way of life and an act Allah is very pleased with. This Ramadan, call family and friends or at least email them a Ramadan card and ask them how their fasting is going.


Read 15 minutes of Quran a day

Even if you feel you've got absolutely no time, set a timer or the alarm on your cell phone and find a relatively quiet place. You can read the first page of the Quran you open or follow a sequence. The choice is yours. The point is simply to connect with God through His revelation in the month of the Quran.

Forgive everyone who has hurt you

Still got a festering wound from the fight with your friend last year? Still upset about something your spouse said during a heated argument? Or are you still bitter about the way your parents sometimes treated you as a kid? Let go of the anger and pain this Ramadan and forgive those who have hurt you. Forgiving someone is not only good for the body, but it's also great for the soul. And in Ramadan, ten days of which are devoted to Allah's forgiveness, shouldn't we lesser beings forgive too?

First Ashra of Ramadan


Ashra is an Arabic word which means “ten.” In Islamic terminology, the 1st Ashra refers to the first 10 days of the Holy month of Ramadan. The second Ashra refers to the middle 10 days (11-20), and the third Ashra refers to the last set of 10 days (21-30)

The first ten days of Ramadan are known as the period of Mercy. It is indeed the sign of His Mercy upon us that we are blessed to observe Fast during Ramadan.

Accordingly, we are encouraged to be more generous and kind to fellow beings, especially to be extremely respectful to elders and loving to the younger ones, and to be extremely generous to the needy and poor ones.

Being that it will be our first days of experiencing hunger and thirst, this act of generosity should come naturally as it becomes easy to understand the hardship of the poor and needy.

Among the few things to do in this month of mercy and charity, as instructed by the Prophet, peace be upon him, are, "Give alms to the poor and needy. Pay respect to elders, have sympathy to youngsters, to be kind to your relatives."

It is our undeniable duty to practice of guarding our tongue against unworthy words, eyes from seeing forbidden things, and ears from hearing voices that are evil.

2nd Ashra of Ramadan


The middle Ashra of Ramadan is the time for Maghfirah; the time to wash off our sins.

Ramadan is the month to seek Forgiveness and repentance. Having witnessed the Mercy of Allah (SWT) by thanking Him for all that He has granted us, by being good to everyone and keeping ourselves at peace, we realize our relationship with our Rabb, and our role and duties towards Him.

This is the time when Allah’s (SWT) Mercy is at its peak, and it is best to utilize this opportunity by imploring Allah to forgive our sins. The Prophet is reported to have said: "Do repent in this month to Allah for your sins, and supplicate with raised hands at the time of prayer as these are the best times, during which Allah Al-Mighty looks at his servants with mercy. Allah answers if they supplicate, responds if they call, grants if He is asked, and accepts if they entreat. O People! You have made your conscience the slave of your desires. Make it free by invoking Allah for forgiveness. Your back may break from the heavy load of your sins, so prostrate (sajda) yourself before Allah, for long intervals, and make this load lighter."

We are required to reflect on these elements in these days of Repentance even more than any other days and this is the time we seek forgiveness and make amendments for our mistakes, never intending to do them again.

Do Tauba repeatedly, constantly, and sincerely for Allah loves Tauba, and especially during this Ashra Allah loves to forgive and loves him who seeks forgiveness. Forgive your brothers in Islam, and accept them as friends, and show no ill-treatment or disrespect to others.

3rd and The Last Ashra of Ramadan

The last ten days of Ramadan are the most spiritually charged days of the month. During the last ten days of Ramadan Muslims from all over the world indulge in praying.

It is a time of special spiritual power as everyone tries to come closer to God through devotions and good deeds.

Ramadan enjoys and intrinsic superiority over all the other months of the year. Likewise, it's last 'Ashra or ten days are superior to the two earlier 'Ashras, and lailatul Qadr or the Night of Power, generally, falls in it.

That is why, the sacred Prophet (peace & blessings upon him) devoted himself more intensively to prayer and other forms of worship during it and urged others, also, to do the same.

Ayesha (RA) related to us that "the Apostle of Allah (peace & blessings upon him) strove harder and took greater pains to observe prayer etc., during the last ten days of Ramadan than during the other days." [Muslim]

It is related by Ayesha (RA) that "when the last ten days of Ramadan began the Apostle of Allah (peace & blessings upon him) would gird up the loins and keep awake in the nights (i.e., he used to spend the whole of the nights in prayer and worship), and, also, wakened the members of his family (so that they, too, could partake of the blessings of the nights of that month)." [Bukhari]

Night of Power
The night on which the first verses of the Qur'an were revealed to the Prophet, known as the Night of Power (Lailat ul-Qadr), is generally taken to be the 27th night of the month. The Qur'an states that this night is better than a thousand months. Therefore many Muslims spend the entire night in prayer.

Next year resolution

It is a time to make a resolution for the next year to continue to pray in the masjid as much as we can, just as we have been doing in Ramadan. Let's also make a resolution for the next year to continue to read the Quraan as we have been doing in Ramadan. Do not forget to fast the 6 days of Shawwal if you can!
