fasting in Ramadan

Is it permissible to pay kaffara [expiation] on mother behalf from the money she left?

Source : Ali-Gomaa.com / 4 July 2013


My mother passed away without making up her missed fast days of Ramadan and this fact is known to all her children. Is it permissible to pay kaffara [expiation] on her behalf from the money she left?

Is surat al-Fatiha or any other sura recited for each deceased separately or is it possible to direct the reward of its recitation to all of them together?


Ramadan: a test and an opportunity

Source : MuslimVillage | 03 Jul 2013

The month of Ramadhan is not like any other month; its purpose is to rid man of those habits which he has accumulated throughout the rest of the year. It is a month that prepares man for the remaining eleven months by teaching him discipline and self control. Thus, Allah has made some acts which are beloved to man, like eating, drinking and fulfilling one’s desires, Haraam. If man can control these desires in this month, which are usually permissible for him, then he can surely control himself from other desires which are not permissible throughout the remaining months.

Every year we witness the month of Ramadhan but if someone were to ask us what does Ramadhan mean what would be our reply? If we were ask to define fasting (sawm) what would be our reply?

 Ramadhan comes from the word rimdun or ramada which means to scorch, according to the Ulema it is hoped that during the month of Ramadhan the sins of the believers will be scorched or burnt.


Let’s Beat Procrastination Before Ramadan

By Talha Tashfeen Qayyum / 25 June 2013

Procrastination is the big daddy of productivity busters and seems to spare no one from its deadly clutches. It is something that we as humans fall for subconsciously at one time or the other.

As a child I was always told by my beloved mother not to delay what is to be done to a later time as it is something that stems from carelessness and laziness. Procrastination is a habit that is difficult to shake off once developed.

Dear fasting sister!

We are being approached by a month of mercy, forgiveness and salvation from Hell. It is the month of fasting, praying Qiyaam (the optional night prayer) and recitation of the Quran. It is a month during which rewards are multiplied and sins are expiated. It is a month that approaches us with all the immense mercy and abundant rewards that it includes.

Fasting is not unique to the Muslims. It has been practiced for centuries in connection with religious ceremonies by Christians, Jews, Confucianists, Hindus, Taoists, and Jains. God mentions this fact in the Qur'an:
“O you who believe, fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may develop God-consciousness.” (Qur'an 2:183)

The month of Ramadan is at hand, and with it, the world’s Muslims will be entering into one of the finest and most beautiful schools of life.

Let’s welcome Ramadan

By Mohammed Al Sobhi | Jeddah | 14 Jul 2012

Every year when the month of Ramadan starts it seems as if the last one has just ended. One year has passed quickly and as time passes sometimes we lose the direction in our lives, getting caught up with day-to-day affairs, forgetting what we were created for and what is the purpose of our existence.

Therefore, we should greet the month of Ramadan and consider it as an opportunity to reflect on our lives and to reconsider our ways.
