Ramadan Blessings and Benefits

In Our Holy Month of Ramadan there are many Benefits and Many Blessings... One of the many benefits and blessings is that the Ramadan is divided into 3 parts "Mercy, Forgiveness, and Freedom from the Hell fire." The first 10 days of Ramadan is Mercy, The second 10 days is Forgiveness, and the Third is Freedom from the Hell Fire. Remembering that Ramadan (Fasting) is one of the five pillars of Islam we should treat this month with special care and like the jewel that it is, So try and do as much good as possible, stacking up many Barakats (blessings), and leave off any and all of those things that are not of a benefit to your Mind, body, spirit, or Iman (faith). May We Have Much Success in this Blessed Month, Ameen.

Oppression...The Forbidden


As Muslims we should try not to have oppressive words or actions for our fellow man or creatures. Sometimes without realizing it we tend to say and do things that are oppressive to one another, resulting in the injury of the friendship or the spiritual state of an individual. If we find that we have been oppressive we should  try and amend the relationship and our conduct/actions. We should want to take care of each others spiritual well-being. Besides... we never know what others are going through at that particular time in life; Nor do we know who is one of God's Finest. 
"Outer Beauty is Temporary, Inner Beauty is Eternal."
Take Care of Your Spirit and Each Others.
