Glad Tidings of Ramadan
The Month of Fasting and The Month of Quran
With grateful hearts we rejoice to be among those blessed with the glad tidings of Ramadan. This month, which is overflowing with opportunities to draw nearer to Allah (swt) through fasting, worship, good deeds and charity, is also a perfect time to connect with the transformative words of Allah through reciting the Qur’an.
Allah (swt) tells us, “The month of Ramadan is the month when the Qur’an was sent down as a clear guidance for mankind with clear proofs of guidance and a criterion by which to distinguish right from wrong” [Al-Baqarah: 185].
Throughout this month, Rabata’s Ramadan Quran Khitma Project invites individuals worldwide to recite as many complete readings of Quran in Arabic and submit them to one collective total. Upon collection of the Khitmas, there will be a chance to send in du’a requests which will be read during the upcoming Ramadan livestreams.
Let’s taste the sweetness of faith in fasting and reciting the healing and guiding verses of Quran this Ramadan. May Allah bless us with a prosperous month and may we reap the blessings it beholds.
