How to receive the month of Ramadan

Question:

Would you please tell me how to receive the noble month of Ramadan?

Fatwa:

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

A Muslim should rejoice at the coming of Ramadan and receive it by making sincere repentance, complete preparation and freeing oneself for worship, such as prayer, reciting the Quran, remembering and glorifying Allah, observing I‘tikaaf, (staying in seclusion in the Masjid for the purpose of worship) abandoning sins and disobedience, giving back the rights of others and so on.

Sadly, many people receive Ramadan by shopping for different types of food and drink and other such things. It was better for them to forego this in order to achieve the purpose of fasting, which is fearing Allah The Almighty. Being moderate in eating and drinking is one of the greatest reasons to achieve consciousness of Allah The Almighty. That is because decreasing one's consumption of food and drink narrows the passages of blood which Satan moves through to delude humans, as stated by scholars.

Allah Knows best.
