As the Holy Month of Ramadhan 1442 AH will come soon, the Al-Akhdar DAHANA Mosque Prosperity Council (DKM) is holding an online monthly study for DAHANA employees under the the headline “Ramadan is here soon, what should we prepare?” held on Friday (19/03/2021) with Ustadz Muhtar Fatony as the speaker.


In his speech, Ustadz Muhtar invited the participants to rejoice in welcoming the upcoming Holy Month of Ramadan as during the Ramadan, there are many virtues that are not available in other months.


“The month of Ramadan is the month in which the Koran was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad PBUH, the month where Satans are shackled, the gates of hell are closed while the gates of heaven are widely open, and there is a night full of glory and blessings, namely the night of lailatul qadar,” said Ustadz Muhtar.


During the holy month of Ramadan, all Muslims observe Ramadan fasting as contained in the pillars of Islam. All the good deeds will be multiply rewarded by Allah. So it is good to welcome this Holy Month of Ramadan with great joy because as this month is full of blessings and forgiveness.


Ustadz Muhtar continued, before entering the Holy Month of Ramadan 1442 AH, it is better for Muslims to prepare themselves well. Some of these preparations include increase of good practice by adding the sunnah fasting and with extra time of reciting of the Koran. This will be followed by giving zakat (charity), donations and alms, and improving the knowledge of shiyam fiqh. Then spiritual preparation by increasing istighfar (act of seeking forgiveness of God) and prayers, and finally physical preparation by maintaining the good health so that you can carry out the fasting of Ramadan properly.


“It is our hope that all of us will be given the opportunity by Allah SWT to meet the holy month of Ramadan which we really miss, a very glorious month full of blessings and forgiveness,” said Ustadz Muhtar. (rmt)
