Lesson of Ramadan must be implemented in formation of person and society

Quran Study Class and Iftar Mahfil with Central Secretariat Members

Yasin Arafat, the central president of Bangladesh Islami Chhatra Shibir, said that Ramadan is a unique month for the self-development and training for the believers. In this month the Al-Qur'an was revealed, which is the guide for mankind. In this month, one fardh worship is equal to 70 fardh worships of another month. Ramadan is our yearly month of training. Therefore, the lesson of Ramadan must be implemented in formation of person and society

He said this while speaking as the chief guest at the study class and iftar mahfil with members of the secretariat members of Chhatra Shibir at an auditorium of the capital. The study class was conducted by former Secretary General and Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami executive council member Maulana Abdul Halim. Secretary General Mobarak Hossain, Central Office Secretary Sirajul Islam, Central Dawah Secretary Shah Mahfuzul Huq, and other Secretariat members were present.

The Shibir President said that Allah has made fast obligatory on us for creating attributes of taqwa in the people. It is not possible to get real welfare from fasting by only abandoning food and drink. It is possible to get real welfare from fasting through devotional obedience to Allah and staying away from all kinds of sins, wickedness and evil. This month is the golden opportunity for learning the Qur'an and its implementation. This opportunity needs to be used. The messenger of Allah said, 'Whoever fasts in Ramadan with Iman and self-reflection during the month of Ramadan, Allah Ta'ala will forgive all the sins of his past days.' Further, 'The person who got the month of Ramadan but was unable to get all the sins of his past life forgiven, woe and destruction to him’ (Bukhari and Muslim). Therefore, Ramadan must be employed as the best way to build the successful life of the world and the Hereafter. In any way, we must be careful against the misfortunes described in the Ahadith.

He said that in order to succeed in this world and the next, we will have to try to implement Ramadan's education in every aspect of our life. The month of Ramadan must be taken as the month of training to stay upon the Deen for the whole year and the rules of fasting must be followed correctly. Through this, the person must acquire lessons for self-correction from the wrong mistakes in life. We should earn piety through much more good deeds. The Qur'an should be taught to the people who do not know the Qur'an. People of all walks of life should know about the benefits and welfare of life in the light of the Qur'an. He urged everyone to attain the welfare of Ramadan in real life learning from the lessons of Ramadan.
