At the core of all Ramadan’s blessings is Taqwa, as Allah (swt) tells us in the Qur’an, “Oh you who believe, fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that you may attain Taqwa” (Surah Al Baqarah 2:183). Taqwa is the quality of the heart most valued by Allah (swt): “Verily, the noblest of you in the sight of Allah is the one who has the most Taqwa. Behold, Allah is all-knowing, all-aware” (Surah Al-Hujurat, 49:13). When a Muslim has Taqwa, he has every blessing from his Lord: he is blessed with rahmah, magfirah and najah. What more can he need or desire? click here for more info
