Ramadan In The Quran

[2:185]

"Ramadan is the month during which the Quran was revealed,

providing guidance for the people, clear teachings, and

the statute book. Those of you who witness this month

shall fast therein. Those who are ill or traveling may

substitute the same number of other days. GOD wishes for

you convenience, not hardship, that you may fulfill your

obligations, and to glorify GOD for guiding you, and to

express your appreciation."


ABOUT RAMADAN AND THE FASTING

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[2:183]

O you who believe, fasting is decreed for you, as it was
decreed for those before you, that you may attain salvation.

*2:183-187 Like all duties in Submission,
fasting was decreed through Abraham
(22:78, ).
Prior to revelation of the Quran, sexual
intercourse was prohibited throughout
the fasting period. This rule is modified
in 2:187 to allow intercourse during the
nights of Ramadan.

[2:184]

Specific days (are designated for fasting); if one is ill
or traveling, an equal number of other days may be
substituted. Those who can fast, but with great
difficulty, may substitute feeding one poor person for
each day of breaking the fast. If one volunteers (more
righteous works), it is better. But fasting is the best
for you, if you only knew.

[2:185]

Ramadan is the month during which the Quran was revealed,
providing guidance for the people, clear teachings, and
the statute book. Those of you who witness this month
shall fast therein. Those who are ill or traveling may
substitute the same number of other days. GOD wishes for
you convenience, not hardship, that you may fulfill your
obligations, and to glorify GOD for guiding you, and to
express your appreciation.

[2:186]

When My servants ask you about Me, I am always near. I
answer their prayers when they pray to Me. The people
shall respond to Me and believe in Me, in order to be
guided.

[2:187]

Permitted for you is sexual intercourse with your wives
during the nights of fasting. They are the keepers of
your secrets, and you are the keepers of their secrets.
GOD knew that you used to betray your souls, and He has
redeemed you, and has pardoned you. Henceforth, you may
have intercourse with them, seeking what GOD has
permitted for you. You may eat and drink until the white
thread of light becomes distinguishable from the dark
thread of night at dawn. Then, you shall fast until
sunset. Sexual intercourse is prohibited if you decide to
retreat to the masjid (during the last ten days of
Ramadan). These are GOD's laws; you shall not transgress
them. GOD thus clarifies His revelations for the people,
that they may attain salvation.


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[97:1]

We revealed it (Quran) in the Night of Destiny.

[97:2]

How awesome is the Night of Destiny!

[97:3]

The Night of Destiny is better than a thousand months.

[97:4]

The angels and the Spirit descend therein, by their
Lord's leave, to carry out every command.

[97:5]

Peaceful it is until the advent of the dawn.
