a. His Guidance in Fasting Ramadhan:

of a witness. In caseAccording to his guidance he (peace be upun him) would only begin the fast of Ramadhan after a verified sighting of the new moon or the evidence it was not sighted and without a witness he would complete 30 days of Sha`baan.

If the new moon could not be sighted on the 29th of Sha`baan due to clouds, he (peace be upun him) completed thirty days of the month. He (peace be upun him) did not fast on the day of doubt, or tell anyone to do it.

Third Encounter
Imam Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allah have mercy upon him) said, "The guidance of Allah's Messenger (Peace and blessings of Allah upon him) in Ramadhan was the most complete and perfect for achieving the desired objective with ease.

15 ways Ramadan special for your kids

by Sound Vision Staff writer

With barely a few weeks left, there's little time for us to prepare kids for Ramadan. Here are a couple of ideas to help make it special this year.

Hold a family meeting about Ramadan

A week before Ramadan, hold a family meeting to explain what Ramadan is, that the sighting of the moon indicates its beginning, what Muslims do and how the family's schedule will change. Also ask for suggestions of what everyone would like to do during the month. For instance, would they like to take a trip somewhere, eat a specific type of food, etc.

What Breaks Fasting

Fasting has its advantages from the point of view of health and hygiene. Islam wants a Muslim to be healthy, clean, alert, agile and energetic. "Fast to be healthy," had said the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.). And physicians today acknowledge the many benefits of fasting that ensure health and the soundness of one's body and mind. Some of these positive points have a direct influence on psychology and physique of the fasting individual.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF RAMADAN FASTING

By Shahid Athar, M.D.

This year the Islamic month of Ramadan will start on December 20th. Muslims all over the world will start this month with fasting from dawn to dusk daily for 30 days as ordained in Quran.

"O you who believe fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you so that you can learn Taqwa" (Quran 2:183)

The Arabic word Taqwa is translated in many ways including God consciousness, God fearing, piety, and self restraining. Thus we are asked to fast daily for one month from dawn to dusk and avoid food, water, sex and vulgar talk during that period.

What is Ramadhan?

Ramadhan is that time of the year when Muslims recharge their spiritual batteries. For a whole month, they fast from dawn to sunset, and offer additional prayers at night. After the end of Ramadhan comes one of the two Muslim festivals, a day of Eid. On this day, Muslims thank God for His guidance and grace in helping them to control their baser desires and fulfill their spiritual [img]/mul/sites/all/modules/wysiwyg/plugins/break/images/spacer.gif[/img]

HUMiliTY

The Prophet (blessing and peace be upon him) mixed with people, and lived with them in all other cases in sorrow and in joy, and in hardship and in relief, he did not felt that he was better than them except by the revelation that has been revealed to him by Allah as the Lord of Al-‘Alamin (mankind, jinn and all that exists).
