The Real Essense of Ramazan

For most Muslims Ramazan is just a month of fasting. Unfortunately, it's not just food but more about staying away from sins. It's a very pious month, one in which the holy QurĂ¡n came to us for guidance. Ramazan gives us a chance to do some self-introspection. A chance to discover ourselves and make better use of the most beautiful gift given to us by the Almighty - Life!

A famous couplet by the renowned poet Bahadur Shah Zafar comes immediately to my mind:

Jihaade nafs ibaadat me hai hamein manzoor
Wuzu ke waqt ulat'te hai aasteeno ko
