Ramadan Message from the National Imam of the Nation of Islam, Imam Sultan Muhammad
Sunday, June 29, 2014
A Message from Sultan Muhammad, the National Imam of the Nation of Islam:
Ramadan Mubarak! Blessed Holy Month of Ramadan to us all!
“O you who believe, fasting is prescribed for you, as it was prescribed for those before you, so that you may guard against evil.” ~ Chapter 2:183, Holy Quran.
Allah Willing, fasting will start on Sunday, June 29, 2014.
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has stated, ”The Fast of Ramadan, the Discipline of Prayer and Reflection through the reading of the Qur’an at prescribed times during the days is the greatest aid in developing discipline.”
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad gives beautiful guidance in these words from his book 'How to Eat to Live: Book 2,' "the Muslims...do not eat nor drink from before sunrise until she (the sun) has set. If you take it (the fast of Ramadan) with them, you are doing the right thing, until this evil world has vanished." He advises further, "during this month, let there be no quarreling or disputing in our homes or abroad." "In this month, we should keep our minds on Allah," and, "In this month of fasting we shall keep our minds and hearts clean."
