Ramadan a time of fasting and drawing closer to God

WE are passing through the month of Ramadan, a month of fasting, sacrifice and efforts to be closer to God.

We observe that man has progressed a lot but is unable to reduce his anxiety and dissatisfaction.

Some say that if they secure a good job they will be satisfied and their anxiety will end. Others may think that by marrying the love of their life, they will be content.

But in reality there is no end to this anxiety. If one gets a mountain of gold, one will desire for another.

There are many who, only for a sound sleep, take drugs and injections and sometimes lose their lives by it.

Many, who are wealthy, famous and have every luxury that this world can offer, use dangerous drugs for moments of happiness.

Is that what is the cause of this restlessness and what is its cure?

Allah says in the Koran that comfort of hearts is in remembrance of God. Therefore, man can acquire real contentment from God.

By acquiring knowledge of the attributes of God, adopting those attributes and praying, one can acquire certainty, because it is a fact that one cannot build any connection with God if he or she is uncertain about His existence.
