Random Ramblings~#9

The Month of Self discipline.

image

The Month when the Devils are chained.
The Desires are drained
Stomachs are trained.
Good deeds are gained
Piety attained.
Modesty and humbleness obtained.
Remembering those who are starving and pained.

The month of transformation when,
The Stingy gives donation.
The Haughty falls in prostration.
The Arrogant resists in fustration.
The Isolated visits blood relation.
The Sinful seeks salvation.
………………………………………………………………………………
The fast of Ramadan is not merely a fast of the stomach, but a holistic fast of the tongue, eyes, ears, limbs, heart and mind. The fasting person is to control not only his/her actions and deeds, but also his/her thoughts and desires. Therefore, Ramadan is considered the Month of Self-Discipline.
