Ramadan is the month of the Quran

Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was revealed.

Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was revealed. Fasting was ordered in this blessed month in which the Quran was sent down in order to welcome this divine call in the best way.

In this month, man resembles angels by shunning the lower demands of the soul and trivialities and by abstaining from food and drink. He can read and listen to the Quran as though it was just revealed, listen to the Divine address in it as if it was being revealed that very moment, attaining a lofty state. Some people with lofty spirits can even listen to that address as though hearing it from the Messenger of Allah (pbuh), from Jibril, or even from Allah Almighty Himself, attaining that same holy state. Man can act as an interpreter and convey this divine message to others, spending this time period in accordance with the aim of his creation and with the month in which the Quran was sent down.

 In the month of Ramadan, the whole Islamic world becomes like a mosque. In every corner of that mighty mosque, millions of those who know the whole Quran by heart cause the dwellers on the earth to hear the heavenly address. Each Ramadan displays the verse, “It was the month of Ramadan in which the Qur’an was bestowed from on high”[3] in a luminous shining manner. It proves that Ramadan is the month of the Quran. Some of the members of the vast congregation listen to the reciters with reverence, while others read it themselves. 

Following the appetites of the soul and quitting that luminous condition through eating and drinking in a time period when the whole Islamic world turns the earth to a mighty mosque is truly loathsome, as it is expressed in the following example:

 If someone plays a game instead of performing prayers in the mosque and sings a song instead of listening to the Quran, he shows great disrespect; similarly if someone eats and drinks in Ramadan, when the whole Islamic world performs fasting and reads the Quran, he shows great disrespect toward the Quran and those who worship.
