Ramadan is not only the month of fasting but it is an opportunity from our lord to bring a change in our lives that includes our behavior, our deeds and mostly to shed all those faults that we are carrying and streamline our souls. We are provided this opportunity by Our Almighty Allah every year till we return to Him.

In the Holy month of Ramadan Almighty Allah send his innumerable favor’s upon mankind and proffer us the chance to please him in every sense and in every manner. He [subhanwatallah] purify and deodorize our hearts and souls from every evil and iniquitous acts, that hinder us to reach to salvation. Multitudinous blessings are favored to us from our lord ,for that we can`t recompense at all.

Besides, this month teaches us the beauty of forgiveness. Let me illustrate this through a sublime personality who made name in the History of Islam, whose robustness can`t be compared and computed. He opened his eyes and first thing he saw was Prophet Mohammad (SAWW). Imam Ali (A.S.) followed Prophet (SAWW) like a lamb follows his mother. He always stood for prophet just like a backbone for a human and accompanied him in every battlefield and remained like a shadow with him.

Imam Ali (A.S.) used to carry essential items including eatables on his shoulders to fed underprivileged, orphans and widows.He used to mend his own clothes and shoes despite ruling his nation. 

Imam Ali (A.S.) used to carry essential items including eatables on his shoulders to fed underprivileged, orphans and widows. He was a guiding spirit who led a simple life and always cared for the downtrodden people. He used to mend his own clothes and shoes despite ruling his nation. Words are too little to define all the qualities of a noble soul like Imam Ali (A.S.).

Being a torchbearer for the mankind, the whole life of Imam Ali (A.S.) is a guiding force for perfection for anyone who have lost his way and all his hopes. History ingeminate itself again and again and it was in the same month of Ramazan when our beloved Imam was in prostration and foe Ibn Muljam hint him by his poisonous sword . Although Imam was in deep pain and whole family was in agony still he offered Ibn Muljam a cup of milk and told his companions to release his hands and forgave him. This indeed is something which is uncommon. Only a personality like Imam Ali (A.S.) can do it because he was very close to Allah Almighty and he knew that he has attained the supreme place by the this sacrifice.

Words are too little to define all the qualities of a noble soul like Imam Ali (A.S.).

Allah says in Holy Quran, “show forgiveness and you will be bestowed with the best”. The character of our Imam demonstrates us the highness and virtues of forgiveness in our lives.

Let`s pray to our lord that show all of us right path and grant us patience and forgiveness in our hearts so that we will be triumphant in this World and the life hereafter. Ameen
