Essence Of Ramadan

The Light and Wisdom
Of Allah SWT

INDEX


Introduction

Ramadan Is The Month Of Qur'an
The Month Of The Message,
The Light, Mercy
And Wisdom From Allah Swt

Qur'an is Furqan, the criterion, the one that distinguishes right from wrong, the light. Hereunder are some of the meanings of the messages of the Qur'an on which Allah SWT emphasizes.

The Light Of Allah Swt Equals
Guidance, Closeness, To Be For Allah Swt,
Allah Swt Says,"I Will Be With The Patient One,
I Will Be With The Generous One,
I Will Be With The Righteous One"

We should ask ourselves, Do I want to be with Allah SWT? Do I want to be among the people who Allah SWT will be with, whom he will support, give light to, from his light, guidance and wisdom?"

We Need To Ask Our Selves If We Want To Be Among Those
Whom Allah Will Guard, Give Strength To,
And Take Care Of Their Affairs...
Meaning, In The End, If We Are With Allah Swt,
We Will Have No Worries
And We Will Be Worry Free!!

Now we will go through some messages I believe are very important to inculcate, reflect upon and ask serious questions, for us as individuals and as a group. After that, we should ask ourselves what we should do with the message. Please read carefully and try to read it over and over again and beg Allah to give you the comprehension of what you are reading.

Ask yourself, What is the purpose of all these messages from Allah SWT to me? What does Allah SWT want me to do after hearing it? Say, Bismillah, and beg Allah SWT to give you the understanding and ability to live the message.




The Message of Qur'an

Quran Chapter 2
Surah Al Baqarah



Allah is the Protecting Guardian of those who believe. He bringeth them out of darkness into light. As for those who disbelieve, their patrons are false deities. They bring them out of light into darkness. Such are rightful owners of the Fire. They will abide therein. [Verse:257]



Quran Chapter 5
Surah Al Maidah
Verse 15-16



O People of the Scripture! Now hath Our messenger come unto you,expounding unto you much of that which ye used to hide in the Scripture, and forgiving much. Now hath come unto you light from Allah and plain Scripture,Whereby Allah guideth him who seeketh His good pleasure unto paths of peace. He bringeth them out of darkness unto light by His decree, and guideth them unto a straight path.



Quran Chapter 6
Surah Al Anaam



Praise be to Allah, Who hath created the heavens and the earth, and hath appointed darkness and light. Yet those who disbelieve ascribe rivals unto their Lord. [Verse:1]

Quran Chapter 6
Surah Al Anaam



Such is the guidance of Allah wherewith He guideth whom He will of His bondmen. But if they had set up (for worship) aught beside Him, (all) that they did would have been vain. [Verse:88]



Quran Chapter 6
Surah Al Anaam



And they measure not the power of Allah its true measure when they say: Allah hath naught revealed unto a human being. Say (unto the Jews who speak thus): Who revealed the Book which Moses brought, a light and guidance for mankind, which ye have put on parchments which ye show, but ye hide much (thereof), and by which ye were taught that which ye knew not yourselves nor (did) your fathers (know it)? Say: Allah. Then leave them to their play of cavilling. [Verse:91]



Quran Chapter 6
Surah Al Anaam



Is he who was dead and We have raised him unto life, and set for him a light wherein he walketh among men, as him whose similitude is in utter darkness whence he cannot emerge? Thus is their conduct made fairseeming for the disbelievers. [Verse:122]



Quran Chapter 7
Surah Al A'raaf



Those who follow the messenger, the Prophet who can neither read nor write, whom they will find described in the Torah and the Gospel (which are) with them. He will enjoin on them that which is right and forbid them that which is wrong. He will make lawful for them all good things and prohibit for them only the foul; and he will relieve them of their burden and the fetters that they used to wear. Then those who believe in him, and honour him, and help him, and follow the light which is sent down with him: they are the successful. [Verse:157]



Quran Chapter 14
Surah Ibrahim
Verses 1-3



Alif. Lam. Ra. (This is) a Scripture which We have revealed unto thee (Muhammad) that thereby thou mayst bring forth mankind from darkness unto light, by the permission of their Lord, unto the path of the Mighty, the Owner of Praise, Allah, unto Whom belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth. and woe unto the disbelievers from an awful doom; Those who love the life of the world more than the Hereafter, and debar (men) from the way of Allah and would have it crooked: such are far astray.



Quran Chapter 14
Surah Ibrahim
Verse 4-5



And We never sent a messenger save with the language of his folk, that he might make (the message) clear for them. Then Allah sendeth whom He will astray, and guideth whom He will. He is the Mighty, the Wise. We verily sent Moses with Our revelations, saying: Bring thy people forth from darkness unto light. And remind them of the days of Allah. Lo! therein are revelations for each steadfast, thankful (heart).

Quran Chapter 42

And thus have We inspired in thee (Muhammad) a Spirit of Our command. Thou knewest not what the Scripture was, nor what the Faith. But We have made it a light whereby We guide whom We will of Our bondmen. And lo! thou verily dost guide unto a right path. [Verse:52]



Quran Chapter 42
Surah Ash Shura



He hath ordained for you that religion which He commended unto Noah, and that which We inspire in thee (Muhammad), and that which We commended unto Abraham and Moses and Jesus, saying: Establish the religion, and be not divided therein. Dreadful for the idolaters is that unto which thou callest them. Allah chooseth for Himself whom He will, and guideth unto Himself him who turneth (toward Him). [Verse:13]

Say: Is the blind man equal to the seer, or is darkness equal to light? Or assign they unto Allah partners who created the like of His creation so that the creation (which they made and His creation) seemed alike to them? Say: Allah is the Creator of all things, and He is the One, the Almighty. [Verse:16]



Quran Chapter 24
Surah An Noor



Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The similitude of His light is as a niche wherein is a lamp. The lamp is in a glass. The glass is as it were a shining star. (This lamp is) kindled from a blessed tree, an olive neither of the East nor of the West, whose oil would almost glow forth (of itself) though no fire touched it. Light upon light. Allah guideth unto His light whom He will. And Allah setteth forth for mankind similitudes, for Allah is Knower of all things. [Verse:35]

On the day when thou (Muhammad) wilt see the believers, men and women, their light shining forth before them and on their right hands, (and wilt hear it said unto them): Glad news for you this day: Gardens underneath which rivers flow, wherein ye are immortal. That is the supreme triumph. On the day when the hypocritical men and the hypocritical women will say unto those who believe: Look on us that we may borrow from your light! it will be said: Go back and seek for light! Then there will separate them a wall wherein is a gate, the inner side whereof containeth mercy, while the outer side thereof is toward the doom.
