Ramdan and fasting lessons and Ordinances
The author said: Fasting is a unique school that addresses the issue of piety, the psychological treatment of the field, and fasting is a great spiritual school, where the creation of patience is manifested in the behavior of the fasting person, so he does not panic, not worry, nor to be afraid of God's mercy. D. Zaid Mohammed Al-Rommany.
Fasting is a unique school that addresses the issue of piety as a field psychological treatment, Allah said. you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous –“ Al-baqra 183.
Fasting is a great spiritual school, where the creation of patience is manifested in the behavior of the fasting person, so that he does not panic, not to worry, nor to be discouraged by God's mercy.
Ibn Qayem al-Jawziyyah - may Allah have mercy on him - said: (What is meant by fasting is to stop the soul from lusts and wean them from the familiar, and to modify their lustful strength to prepare for what is in their happiness and bliss and acceptance of what he married in her eternal life, and breaks the thirst and hunger of its severity, and reminds it of the state of the hungry livers of the poor narrowing the channels of archenemy from the slave by narrowing the channels of food and drink…..)
Al-Ghazal, may God rest his soul, says: Fasting is a zakat for the soul and a sport for the body, a farewell to the righteous, for man is a protection, and the community has maintenance, in the hunger of the body, the serenity of the heart, the leadership of the village and the enforcement of vision.
It is not feared that fasting gives the digestive system complete comfort and gives the body the opportunity to get rid of toxin and accumulated waste.
Some of )the salaf ( the early Muslims was mentioned as saying: God has singled out the month of fasting for Ramadan with many characteristics, including: made it a blessed month, the month of patience, patience paradise, and made it a night in it. It is better than a thousand months, and he made his fast obligatory, and a voluntary night, the month of consolation, a month of mercy, the middle of forgiveness and the last of which is Release from Hell.
In fasting, the full participation of all rich and poor is manifested, as everyone feels the pain of hunger and the bitterness of deprivation.
In the language of economists, there is a direct relationship between the month of fasting and gluttonous conspition. One is surprised by this consumerist insatiable interest in this poetry without a logical justification.
Everyone is running towards the circle of excessive consumption, and the willingness to consume in Ramadan begins early, accompanied by a terrible machine of advertising, advertising and marketing festivals that surround the family everywhere. and time and through more than one means.
The wife is pushing for more, the children insist on their consumer demands, and one himself has a good state of buying anything that is expendable and in too much quantities.
In the language of statistics and figures, in one year the share of ramadan in total annual consumption in an Arab country close to us, for example, is estimated at about 20%, i.e. this sister Arab country consumes In one month, Ramadan, one fifth of its annual consumption is consumed, while in the remaining four months it consumes a fifth of the remaining and Ramadan cost the treasury about $720 million that year.
Unfortunately, other Arab and Muslim countries are not less likely to consume.
Therefore, people can honestly say that there is waste and extravagance to the extent of waste, the quantities purchased on normal days, are multiplied to many times in the month of Ramadan, although it contains only Only two meals!!.
On the other hand, it is known that fasting means that it is to hold away from the lust of the belly, and in the economic sense: to reduce spending or rationalize spending in a more precise sense.
Extravagant spending in Ramadan and elsewhere cannot be consistent with the situation of our muslim societies, which are often developing societies that require the maintenance of every effort and resource of waste and loss.
We make and follow is a method, customs, traditions and rituals, if the phrase is correct, is in fact a waste of material potential that we have misplaced, a waste of high values that we have asked the Islamic religion to uphold and waste the behavior of is conviction.
The month of fasting is undoubtedly an opportunity in which our nation's members learn a benign economic habit of rationalizing spending. It is also a periodic opportunity to learn about the list of due expenditures, an opportunity to prioritize, and an opportunity to identify the level of surplus that should be directed to investment purposes.
So what's needed?
A comprehensive plan to gluttonous consumption ism is needed during Ramadan and non-Ramadan. In particular, this state of growing consumerism in us reflects the enormous extent of behavioural backwardness experienced by our Muslim societies.
Looking at garbage boxes, garbage bags and waste mounds, he believes we urgently need to rethink our consumer values towards adjusting them, becoming productive or rational consumer values.
This is because consumption and spending have serious dimensions that threaten our economic life and national security.
Is Ramadan an opportunity and an opportunity to have the will to confront the state of gluttonous consumption and extravagant spending methods?
