Dubai - The month of Ramadan is a special time for training and “we should continue practising what we learn in this month for the good of our own life”.

These were the views of speakers at a session organised by the Pakistan Association Dubai (PAD) to welcome the advent of the holy month of Ramadan and start a series of programmes specially designed for the month.

Abdullah Adnan, religious affairs secretary  at the PAD, was the main speaker. Imtiaz Ahmed and Azhar Alam also shed light on the benefits of fasting for the individual as well as the society.

Adnan said Ramadan is a special part of the Islamic way of life. The fasting with its true spirit elevates the soul and binds people in the bond of fraternity, increasing their sense of belonging to a single community.

“If we are observing Ramadan in the way Allah and the Prophet (peace be upon him) taught us, we are going to achieve both vertical and horizontal growth — our connection with Allah and our relation with human beings would both grow stronger,” he said.

In Ramadan, everyone feels inclined to do good things, to help others, to refrain from bad things, and be compassionate. “If we listen to this call of our nature and the requisite of Ramadan training, and continue with this spirit in months even after Ramadan, we would have realised the purpose and objective of fasting.” -reporters@khaleejtimes.com
