Ramadan, which began last week, comes at a time when the world is in a desperate need for a spiritual uplifting.
Consider this blessed month as a month-long sale for any good deed that will be multiplied hundreds of times to help wipe out all sins of the previous year. Giving up all worldly pleasures, fasting all day and praying all night is the monthly spiritual routine.
To reflect on the spiritual values of Ramadan, which include patience and sincerity, we teach the youth that they cannot fake their fasting as they are watched by God all day. Ramadan teaches us to be humble as there is no difference between rich or poor, young or old. All fasting for the sake of their Lord from sunrise to sunset.
