Picture Perfect : Moments from the Blessed month of Ramadan

Allah - the Most High - said: "The month of Ramadan in which the Quran was revealed, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance of the Criterion between right and wrong. So whosoever of you sights the crescent for the month of Ramadan, he must fast that month."

(Al Baqarah 2:144)   The Kaaba with respect to the inhabited parts of the world is like the centre of a circle with respect to the circle itself. All regions face the Kaaba, surrounding it as a circle surrounds its centre; and each region faces a particular part of the Kaaba. Prophet Muhammad (SAW) adopted the Kaaba as a physical focus in prayer as well for other acts of worship such as burial of the dead, recitation of the Quran, announcing Read more ...
