The big day is here, Alhamdulillah: Ramadan has just begun and we’ve got millions of Muslims fasting world over at this very moment, mashaAllah!
It’s incredibly heartwarming to see a command of Allah being observed in unison by the ummah in a time of deep division. At this very moment, we are all collectively making an effort to be better people by being more conscious of our words and actions, fasting from bad habits and behavior and prioritizing Allah’s pleasure over our own.
Muslims world over have begun a month-long journey of spiritual, physical and personal productivity today. Together.
Remember those times when you wished you could overshadow all the negative headlines with proof of how easy and incredibly transformational it can be to practice Islam everyday? We want to give you that chance today.
