Ramadan is a special month of the year for over one billion Muslims throughout the world. It is a time for inner reflection, devotion to God, and self-control. Muslims think of it as a kind of tune-up for their spiritual lives. The third "pillar" or religious obligation of Islam, fasting has many special benefits. Among these, the most important is that it is a means of learning self-control. Due to the lack of preoccupation with the satisfaction of bodily appetites during the daylight hours of fasting, a measure of ascendancy is given to one's spiritual nature, which becomes a means of coming closer to God.
The Deen of Islam is the only Deen recognised by Allah Ta'ala. Islam is the Deen of truth, the Deen of Muhabbat, the Deen of Wisdom, the Deen of humanity, the Deen of moderation, the Deen of submission to none other than Rabbul Alimeen – Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.
One of the most distinctive aspects of the month of Ramadhan is that it includes lailatul qadr (the night of power), which is the most blessed night of the year.
