Sittings In The Month Of Ramadan and A Gift To The People Of Iman - In Lessons For The Month Of Ramadan
Fasting is from the five pillars of Islam and obligated upon the Muslim ummah. It was also prescribed to nations before us so that they increase in piety. However, the fasts of Ramadan are the most perfect and complete in terms of their purpose; for they're reasoned to instill Taqwa within us and make us more attuned to distancing ourselves from harmful desires and characteristics that weaken the soul and make it susceptible to sinning. The window of opportunity in Ramadan is limited by time and a Muslim must be prudent and wise to ensure one takes full advantage of it.
Sittings in the month of Ramadan and A Gift To The People Of Iman - In Lessons For The Month Of Ramadan, a combination of 2 works, is based on transcription of lectures by Shaykh Salih al-Fawzan at his mosque in Riyadh. The book is divided into two sections.
The first section encompasses the spiritual side of fasting and consists of beneficial reminders exhorting the believer to make the most out of this blessed month.
The second section covers basic fiqh material on fasting and addresses the FAQs pertaining to this blessed month. Each majlis, or a sitting, consists of a short lesson spanning over on average four to five pages so that the readers can easily read one lesson daily during this blessed month.
This book is a timely addition to any reading library for a number of reasons: It clarifies the important virtues of fasting; directs the readers towards practical ways on enacting righteous deeds; describes foundational merits of the Qur'an and night prayer in the blessed month; the virtues of the last ten nights; exerting in du'a and the reality of this dunya from among other matters.
It essentially addresses issues impacting the health of one's fast, and many other topics vital to understand in our times to ensure the month is properly safeguarded.
