Ramadan; month of mercy not bloodshed

The holy month brings out and provides a special feelings of emotional excitement and religious zeal for the Muslims of all ages, the religious cleric said advising making efforts to reach the mercy and compassion of The Allah Almighty as they suffer much from hunger and thirst, because of Ramadan’s derivation from Ramida meaning and signifying strong burning heat and dryness.

 In thrills and chills, human beings, around the world are making efforts to think of happiness. 

While the holy Ramadan is a month in which, Muslims are polishing their soul and body, by observing fast and enjoying high gratification. Amending soul and sprite and nourishing them with high values of Islamic teachings is preferable for enjoying a fear gratification than resorting to transitory things of the world. So, anyone should treat others honestly and justly. One should adopt trueness and remain honest with those around.
In this month those committing or doing wrong would be faced grievous punishment in other world, as a joint Muslims resolution reveals. 
Following is an interview with a religious scholar, Mawlavi Abdul Hadi Hedayat who says is head of the Islamic Invitation Foundation for Afghanistan Scholars, who praised the month to be the key self-motivated for all Muslims to bring reforms in their minds, soul and even body.
Hedayat recited one of the verses of The Holy Quran in which Allah Almighty was quoted as saying on the excellence of the holy month: “The month of Ramadan is the one in which the Quran was revealed as a guidance for humanity, as a clear proof of that guidance, and as a criterion for distinguishing between right and wrong.”
He advised: “Let’s make our soul and body sound through the blessing of the holy month and help a real source of happiness to be inner peace as if our mind was peaceful, we shall forever be happy, regardless of external conditions.
“If our mind was disturbed or troubled, we will never be happy, no matter how good our external conditions is”, he continued. 
He rejected if some Qaris (the reciters) were keen to extend the sound of The Holy Quran recitation to the public through their mosques’ installed laud-speakers against the principles of the holy Quran recitation and quoted a verse as saying: “When The Holy Quran is recited, anyone should keep quiet listening it in order to receive mercy from Allah, The Almighty.”  
He said if the Qaris (those remember The Holy Quran and recite it) tried to use only the inner laud-speakers of the mosques only, unless the outer speakers were used, then this can adapt to the Holy Quran recitation.
Ramadan gives Muslims the opportunity of observing fast, prayer, The Holy Quran recitation and Allah’s remembrance, particularly during the blessed month of Ramadan, which brings happiness, goodness, spiritual enlightenment, rewards, and physical and spiritual benefits to all the Muslims.
The holy month brings out and provide a special feelings of emotional excitement and religious zeal for the Muslims of all ages, the religious cleric said advising  making efforts to reach the mercy and compassion of The Allah Almighty as they suffer much from hunger and thirst, because of Ramadan’s derivation from Ramida meaning and signifying strong burning heat and dryness.
When a Muslim take fast, it means that he/she suffers much during his the troublesome days of the month-however highly blessed, he continued.
Ramadan is called a blessed month because of being the host of Muslims around the world, with most of them resorting to helping each other during breaking fast or early fast and the people are trying for remaining patients against any wicked action from others as according to The Holy Quran, “When the believers of Allah, The Almighty, confronts those ignorant, they will say Salam (hello) when they receive abuse from them”, or say “I am fasting”, the religious scholar quoted.
Another big part of the holy month is Lailatul-Qadr, the ending nights, in which The Holy Quran had been descended—a night, said to be better than thousand months.
The doors of repentance are open during the holy month of Ramadan and the devils are chained and handcuffed, with the Muslims, observing fast will never be deceived by them.
Anyone who observes fast during the holy month of Ramadan with patience, will receive a holy award, which is Jannah (Paradise), according to Hedayat who, to conclude with, advised all those taking fast should obey the Holy Allah’s order to become successful in the future, rescued from hell and have a sound Muslim society in this world.
Bloodshed by those resorting to this anti-Islamic action would never be let without imposing justice, but would be trailed and execute against, the Islamic regulations in the Day of Judgment.
The holy month, utterly rejects murdering innocents and shedding innocents—either security troops or ordinary people.
So, the Islamic nations should jointly resort to prevent what is going in the Islamic countries—something against the Islamic teachings, which is killing innocents and planting bombs to target buildings or blowing up people.
