All praise is due to Allah, Subhanahu wa ta ala, the Sustainerof the worlds. I pray that His peace and blessings descend uponthe Most Noble of all the Messengers of Allah, MuhammadBin Abdullah, sallallahu 'Alaihi wa salam, his family and companions.Whenever the orbit turns and another month of Ramadan approaches, happiness and joy return to the Ummah, for with itcome two of the greatest gifts of Allah, namely the fastingmonth of Ramadan and the celebration of the revelation of AlQur'an.Fasting is an eloquent expression of Allah, leading this Ummahto the gates of His mercy, a key to unlocking the mysteries ofHis nearness.
