Ramadan is a month where many Muslims renew their relationship with Allaah by returning to reading the Qur'aan with some regularity. For me, I admit to being too preoccupied with the world for some time.
Now, today, on this first day of Ramadan, sitting and reading the Qur'aan, I am struck so very sharply by the immense force of the words, the rolling sea of instruction and guidance. This book is the speech of the only One who can keep a sustained pace of simultaneous grandeur, grace, aloofness, and nearness. No universe of men and the rest of creation diminishes Him with disobedience or rejection; He is One without any constraint or peer.
To Muslims all around the world, glad tidings to you, may Allaah accept our fasting and good deeds, and forgive us for all our shortcomings.
