OBSERVING AITIKAF IN HOLY RAMADAN

Ramadan

Holy Ramadan is half way through and Muslims all around the world are excitedly observing fasts of Holy Ramadan and Muslims spend most of their time in praising and worshipping of ALLAH Almighty to gain maximum blessings in this Holy Ramadan. Pertaining to the days left in Holy Ramadan, the most renowned and most awaited are the last ten days, because last ten days of Holy Ramadan have great importance in religion Islam as they come with Aitikaf. According to the verse Observing Aitikaf is a means of earning and gaining excessive reward from ALLAH Almighty for the good deeds.

There are so many ways through which a Muslim can maximize the blessings of Aitikaf and its outcomes. The first and the important thing that can help a person in maximizing the rewards and effects of Aitikaf is the pure niyyat (intentions). Your intentions or niyyat concerning to Aitikaf must be full of passion, pure and religious zest. You must not observe Aitikaf for the worldly purpose or with the intention that people will call you pious and virtuous; rather your intentions must have to praise and worship ALLAH Almighty, seek His forgiveness and mercy and fulfil the Sunnah of Prophet (PBUH).

Therefore, the reward which a Muslim gets from Aitikaf depends completely upon the intentions. If the intentions are righteous and pure, the reward will be blessed and fruitful as well.

In order to get the most out of Aitikaf, you need to make a proper planning to utilize your each moment in acts of worship. Aitikaf is of last 10 days of Holy Quran, so you need to make a proper chart in which you distribute your goals of worship and the hour distribution to earn maximum blessings. When you do so, then there is a chance that not a single moment of your Aitikaf goes to waste and you utilize most of your time in worshiping ALLAH Almighty and by seeking forgiveness from Him. Another thing that a Muslim can do in order to maximize the reward of Aitikaf and to improve its effectiveness is done by putting high efforts in worshiping and praying and of ALLAH Almighty.

One of the most common acts of worship that Muslims undertake in Aitikaf is recitation of Holy Quran. A Muslim can utilize his time in Aitikaf by reciting more and more Holy Quran and this will help a Muslim to earn greater reward and blessings and this will also give Muslim a chance to increase and sharpens one’s Holy Quran recitation expertise.

In short, Holy Ramadan comes once in a year and brings lots of blessing and rewards for Muslim, now its up to us that ho much effort we put in order to earn maximum rewards and blessings .

FUNDAMENTAL PILLARS OF ISLAM

pillars1– FAITH (Imaan):
There is no god worthy of worship except ALLAH Almighty and

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is His messenger. This declaration of this faith is known as the Shahada, a simple way which all the faithful and believers pronounce. The importance of this declaration of Shahada is the belief that the only purpose of human life is to serve and obey ALLAH Almighty, and this is achieved through the practices and teachings of the Last Prophet, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

2- PRAYER (SALAH):
Namaz is the name of the obligatory prayers; namaz is performed five times everyday, and also it creates a direct link between the worshipper and ALLAH Almighty. Namaz are led by a person who knows the Holy Quran and also learned it, for congregation. These five times daily namaz contain verses from the Holy Quran, and are read in Arabic language, the actual language of the Revelation, but personal supplication (dua) can be done in one’s own language.
Prayers are performed at prescribed timings at dawn (fajr), noon (Zuhar), mid-afternoon (Asar), sunset (Maghrib) and nightfall (Isha). It is recommended to perform namaz together in a masjid with congregation, but a Muslim can perform namaz anywhere possible with neat and clean place and clothes, such as in fields, offices, universities, factories.

3- THE ZAKAT (Charity):
One of the most important laws of Islam is that all things belong to ALLAH Almighty. The term zakat means ‘purification’ and ‘growth’. Our wealth and money are purified by setting aside a particular proportion for those who are poor and in need, and, like for getting the beautiful plant, prune of plants is necessary; this cutting balances and encourages to new growth. A pious Muslim may also give as much as he or she pleases in charity as sadaqah, and keep it so preferably in secret. Although Zakat is obligatory charity whereas Sadaqah is voluntary charity, both have wider meaning. Each able Muslim calculates his or her zakat individually.
4- THE FAST (Roza):
Every year in the month of Holy Ramadan, all Muslims do fast from Fajr to maghrib and abstain him or herself from eating, drinking, and all prohibited activities. Children begin to fast (and to start performing the namaz) from puberty, although many Childs start earlier.
Although the fast is very beneficial to the human’s health, it is regarded as a method of soul and self purification. Through Fast a person cut off from all worldly comforts, even for a short period of time.
5- THE PILGRIMAGE (HAJJ):

Hajj is the annual obligatory pilgrimage to city Makkah, Performing Hajj is an obligation for those who are financially and physically able to perform it.

IMPORTANCE OF MASJID IN MUSLIM COMMUNITY

masjid

Muslims are the believers who trust ALLAH Almighty, Holy Quran and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Muslims are those who have complete trust in ALLAH Almighty; those who believe that ALLAH Almighty is with them, knows what they imagine, say and do.

Muslims look for knowledge. Islam encouraged mankind to learn. Therefore, from the beginning of history of Islam, the concrete sign of Islam (the Mosque or Masjid) became the centre of learning. The Holy Quran recurrently urges the faithful to obtain knowledge, knowledge that would bring them closer to ALLAH Almighty and to His creation. Many verses of the sacred book Holy Quran command this act, Verse 39:9 of Holy Quran,

Is one who is devoutly obedient during periods of the night, prostrating and standing [in prayer], fearing the Hereafter and hoping for the mercy of his Lord, [like one who does not]? Say, “Are those who know equal to those who do not know?” Only they will remember [who are] people of understanding.


 The mosque played a chief part in the spread of education in the Muslim community, and the association of the masjid with education remained one of its major characteristics throughout the Islamic history. From the earliest days of Islam, the masjid was the centre of the Muslim society, a place for prayer, meditation, religious teaching, political discussion, and a school. And anywhere Islam took hold, masjids were established, and essential religious and educational instruction began. Once established, masjid developed into well-known places of knowledge, frequently with hundreds, even thousands, of students, and frequently contained significant libraries.

The initial school connected to a masjid was set up at Madina in 653, and by 900 almost every masjid had an elementary school for the education of both girls and boys The fundamental format in which education took place in the masjid was the study circle, better recognized in the Muslim World as “Halaqat al-‘Ilm”, or Halaqa for short. A Halaqa is accurately defined as ‘a gathering of individuals seated in a circle’ or ‘a gathering of students around a teacher’

Enemies of Islam blame the decline of Muslim development on Islam rather than on the profession and devastation, by powerful anti-Islamic forces, of its centres of knowledge, such as Cordoba, Baghdad, and Seville, we terminate that from its initial days, Islam went hand in hand with scholarship and information. As well as the verses of the Holy Quran and the sayings of the Prophet (PBUH) which urged people to learn and look for knowledge, the masjid, the concrete sign of Islam, was the most significant centre of learning in the Muslim world. Certainly, in most Muslim countries, the word Jami’ means at once both masjid and school. Muslims consider masjid, where Muslims offer daily prayers, as places or houses of ALLAH Almighty that are very dear to them.

ACT OF CHARITY, WORSHIP AND SUPPLICATION

zakat

Muslims must give 2.5% of their yearly savings to help the poor, the oppressed and the needy. This act of devotion acknowledges that all wealth comes from ALLAH Almighty and purifies the soul from all the worldly material greed. In adding up, Islam encourages voluntary acts of charity, be they physical or monetary. A well-known tradition states, ‘Smiling is charity.’

Muslims supplicate to and address ALLAH Almighty directly for their needs and desires anywhere and anytime. This direct relationship is a necessary element of worship (Ibadah) in Islam. Whether asking for direction, seeking solace or beseeching ALLAH Almighty for forgiveness, Muslims reach out to ALLAH Almighty at any time, without an intermediary. Nothing is a mere formality in responsibility Islam. Even the usual wishing ‘Assalamu Alaikum’ has a message and significance.

Fasting is not an only formality that every Muslim has to observe but we should examine it with heart and soul so that ALLAH Almighty gives the essential changes in our hearts thoughts, lives. It would be better if the honorable Islamic Ulema request all mosques to inform proper education on daily prayers so that Muslims pray correctly and their prayers do not go a waste. They also need to explain the finest ways of independent learning of Namaz so that Muslims correct themselves. .

 Ramadan
Muslims fast during the Holy Month of Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, by abstaining from eating, drinking etc acts from dawn to sunset. Fasting installs self-restraint, provides strengthens and spiritual cleansing and one’s willpower. While fasting, Muslims strive to boost charitable acts and control bad habits such foul and abusive language, gossip and anger.

 Holy Hajj: The voyage and attainment of a Lifetime- not every year affair

The Hajj pilgrimage to Makkah should be performed by every Muslim once in their life if they are financially and physically able. It symbolizes the unity of humanity as Muslims from every race; nationality and social status bring together in equality to worship ALLAH Almighty, following the traditions of Hazrat Ibraheem (AS). The two Eid festivals mark significant sacred days for Muslims.

Eid-ul-Fitar is celebrated at the completion of Holy Ramadan while Eid-ul-Azha falls during the days of Hajj. Both occasions start with a congregational prayer (Namaz) and a sermon; these are followed by celebratory meals, gift-giving and socializing. Every Muslim has a right to know and practice genuine Islamic worship. When mosques take the duty of imparting Islamic worship (Ibadah), including prayers in detail, Muslims would learn the prayers correctly and confidently.

When Muslims make Masjids the center of their life activities the class of their life would change significantly for the better and much better. As more and proper Muslims come to mosques the fake ones who make use of them for personal benefits alone would remove themselves from Masjid.
