EMBRACING RAMADAN

Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, is observed by millions around the world as a time of fasting, prayer, reflection, and community. This sacred period calls us to truly embrace the Five Pillars of Islam, essential practices that define the Muslim faith and guide believers in their spiritual and daily lives. Fasting from dawn until sunset, obervers of Ramadan seek to purify their souls, come closer to God, and empathize with those less fortunate. This act of self-discipline and devotion is not just a ritual but a profound journey of spiritual renewal and personal growth.

At ANU Life Global Ministries, we recognize the universal values embedded in the observance of Ramadan and its alignment with our mission to uplift and enlighten through education and service. Just as Ramadan encourages Muslims to reflect on their lives and strengthen their relationship with the divine, ANU promotes a deep understanding of the original family model and righteous living in harmony with the Creator’s will. Our dedication to preserving the dignity and value of world cultures finds resonance in the inclusive spirit of Ramadan, which brings communities together in faith, reflection, and shared experiences.

As we honor the principles of Ramadan, we invite our members and the wider community to explore the rich tapestry of spiritual traditions that ANU embraces. From the profound lessons of Islam to the wisdom of Hebrew scripture, Hinduism, Orisa, Ifa, and Metaphysics, our journey is one of continuous learning, understanding, and application of universal truths. Ramadan serves as a reminder of the power of faith, the importance of self-reflection, and the bonds of community—principles that are central to the ANU path and our collective pursuit of peace, submission, and spiritual fulfillment.

Surah Baqarah Ayah 185

The month of Ramadhan in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights the new moon of the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey – then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and wants for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful.
