The following is part of the beginning of the Quran. I hope you can all enjoy the words, reflect and or a bit of educational informations for those that have never read the book…
Holy Quran Al-Faatiha ( “The Opening” )
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. (1.1)
All the praises and thanks be to Allah, the Lord of the ‘Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists). (1:2)
The Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. (1:3)
The Only Owner (and the Only Ruling Judge) of the Day of Recompense (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) (1:4)
You (Alone) we worship, and you (Alone) we ask for help (for each and everything). (1:5)
Guide us to the Straight Way (1:6)
The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger, nor of those who went astray. (1:7)
Today is the first day of fasting, per doctors orders I am not able to fast due to medication purposes. It doesn’t mean that I cannot at least do a spiritual fasting for myself and get all these negative energies away from me.
One of the “requirements” of fasting is that we read the Holy Quran through this month. There is a a Taraweeh Prayers that we go to mosque at night. Basically from my understanding the Imam (minister) reads from the Quran and we do a certain amount of prayers. This I have been told is as if you are reading the Quran yourself.
I’m sure there are different thoughts on this but to me I would like to do it, I did it two years ago and it felt great. Right now with this new medication’s I am not sure if I will able to do it. Of course I can still do the Taraweeh at home I just need to find the instructions.
So this month I might not be posting a lot but If I do it will probably be about Islam and Chapters of the Quran.
Allah (SWT) If any information on here is wrong or mis-interperted please forgive me. I am trying to do is shine a light to a religion that many do not understand. Maybe with these post and my personal views it might help others understand one of your many beautiful religions. AMEEN
