Understand importance of Ramadan: Mirwaiz

SRINAGAR: Muttahida Malis-e-Ulama patron Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Monday said the holy month of Ramadan is a gift from Almighty Allah to Muslim Ummah, and urged Muslims to understand the importance and significance of the fasting month.
“This month helps Muslims purify themselves from both external and internal impurities and the month provides a great opportunity to the faithful to seek Allah’s blessings and bond with the Almighty,” Mirwaiz said in a statement issued here.
He prayed to Almighty to shower the bounties of rewards and Rehmah (mercy) of this month on the people of Kashmir. Mirwaiz said it was in this holy month only when the Qur’an was revealed upon the beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) that became the torchbearer for every Muslim and will remain so till the end of time.
Ramadan purifies the human heart on one hand, and on the other, gives a great opportunity to people to earn reward through charity and extending a helping hand to poor and destitute by giving Sadaqah and Zakaat, he said.
The people of Kashmir must remain steadfast in the entire month and work on eradicating social evils of various nature that are tormenting the society of Kashmir, Mirwaiz said.
