Why I love Ramadan so much

gebet

It’s the last week of Ramadan, only about six days left. The moon is fading and time gets more precious now, especially during nights. These are the blessed nights, the nights which are the most important, to be spent in prayer and worship.
I love these nights, I love Ramadan, subhanallah.

There are very many reasons why so.
I know, for non-Muslims it is sometimes hard to believe how someone could ever like to abstain from food and drink the whole day and find it even fulfilling…
But Ramadan is really not about being hungry or waiting for the evening dinner, it is about so many beautiful things:
The beauty lies in the purification of ourselves.
The beauty lies in the sensitivity and pureness one establishes while fasting.
The beauty lies in the knowledge of being free of lusts and addictions.
The beauty lies in the sureness of being able to control ourselves.
The beauty lies in those nights spent in submission, when Allah responds to our invocation.
The beauty lies in the quietness of those days which are full of white clear light.
The beauty lies in the countless blessings and “miracles” that happen during this month.
The beauty lies in the shift of focus towards higher goals and in the remembrance of the hereafter.
The beauty lies in sharing and experiencing this together with so many others, for the sake of Allah …
