Brothers, Ramadan to come closer to Allah but let’s discuss why do we need to come closer to Allah?
Brothers Arabs, Muslims and all who are reading this message may God bless you all when you will read it!
Ramadan is a time for spiritual purification achieved through fasting, self-sacrifice and prayers in Islam
It is the month-long struggle in the lives of Muslims towards a higher spiritual state.
Muslims all over the world abstain from food, drink, and other physical needs during the daylight hours. As a time to purify the soul, refocus attention on God, and practice self-sacrifice. Ramadan is much more than just not eating and drinking. Muslims are called upon to use this month to re-evaluate their lives in light of Islamic guidance. They are to make peace with those who have wronged them, strengthen ties with family and friends, do away with bad habits — essentially to clean up our lives, our thoughts, and our feelings. The Arabic word for “fasting” (sawm) literally means “to refrain” – and it means not only refraining from food and drink, but from evil actions, thoughts, and words. During Ramadan, every part of the body must be restrained. The tongue must be restrained from backbiting and gossip. The eyes must restrain themselves from looking at unlawful things. The hand must not touch or take anything that does not belong to it. The ears must refrain from listening to idle talk or obscene words. The feet must refrain from going to sinful places. In such a way, every part of the body observes the fast. Therefore, fasting is not merely physical, but is rather the total commitment of the person’s body and soul to the purpose of fasting to be purified. Ramadan is a time to practice self-restraint; a time to cleanse the body and soul from impurities and re-focus one’s self on the worship of God.
But can we be purified of our sins by ourselves?
How and who should purify us if we cannot do it?!
We can try to do our best to be righteous people. But who is righteous? Only God.
But we are all like an unclean thing,
And all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags
We are just trying to come closer into God’s presence. Can we come closer to Him if He will not allow us to come to Him? NO! Because He decides who should be in His presence. So, what is the purpose of Ramadan?- To come closer to God. BUT Does He wants us to come closer to Him? If I killed 250 Jews in Israel trying to follow Islam and fighting for liberty of Palestine and if among them were children, can I come closer to Allah?
Closer for what reason?
To be praised for my murders? To greet Him by pressing His hand and stain His hands with blood from my hands?
What is the reason to come closer to Allah in Islam in this case?
To enjoy life with my friends martyrs /shahids in Heaven? Most likely such Heaven is in blood and stained with blood of hundreds and thousands of terrorists and martyrs died during suicide bombings.
Probably you think that they all are very happy there. Guys, to be in presence of TRUE God we first should DECIDE who is our God. Is He LOVE and holy or He is who promises you heaven earned by killings? Is He a criminal? Is His Kngdom of crimes to welcome there criminals? Yes or no? If no, then Qur’an lies about Jihad. If no, then Qur’an is against us- human beings!
There is no such mercy in Allah in Islam like there is mercy of Allah in Christianity. No one died for you in Islam to set you free from your sins, to give you forgiveness free of charge and to give you eternity and future with God in His Kingdom. One guy from Saudi Arabia was punished for murder. But he lived righteous life. It was just one his sin- he killed one man….but he made countless number of good deeds. If al Shariah cannot accept this situation without punishing him, it means that it is just. But what is justice then? Justice to kill human beings sending them to hell? Justice to let you be tormented and suffered eternally in the hell fire. If God is such then let’s forget such religion. Because such religion is against us! If religion is self-destruction then we don’t need it! Thanks to the Lord that God revealed Himself to us as LOVING God in the Bible. He is not a human being. He is different than me and you. He cannot accept our sins in Christianity but He found solution to justify you and me through faith. That’s why He decided to send His Only Son to earth to save us and show us who truly God is. We saw in Jesus that God LOVES us. Jesus lived sinless life on earth. Just it was impossible for Him to sin. Sin is not His nature. Sin was not acceptable for Him. He was HOLY says al Quran. He was killed on the cross but in three days He was resurrected. He is alive now and He loves you! He came for you to earth…only to give you mercy called grace by forgiving YOU! You will be clean without any stain. He will forget your madness and countless number of sins. His love forgives personally you. He chose you from the beginning of His creation. He knew you and His love is aimed for you. Only you are the whole world for Him that’s why He is your God. He will be talking into your heart about His love until the last second of your life on the earth. After your time of life here on earth will be finished, you will see Him. He will embrace you and will never let you be apart from Him! Because you are His inheritance! There is no such love to human beings in Islam…because there is no love in Islam… God is ready to forgive these murderers shahyds, striving to get to His Kingdom, because He loves them and always loved them. If God is LOVE it means He could not be different than love. Or love or not. So, He will clean our lives, hands from blood making wuzu Himself for us. Because God’s love in Christianity and sufferings on the cross were for sinners, murderers and adulterers. But God’s purpose is to change them, i.e.us, by making holy as He is HOLY! God suffered to be with us..His heart was suffered terrible pain when we all sinned by killing people and committing other transgressions….Now it is the time of reconciliation with God. …time of peace and forgiveness. Ramadan will be for us not for one month as it is in Islam but for all our life. Ramadan of fasting and coming closer to God with our prayers will be everyday of our life. Ramadan of clear and new life..Ramadan of love and Kingdom of the christian Allah is already here on earth in our bodies, our hearts and lives, in our families. Ramadan to the most gracious God is in His Kingdom here on earth. We are His Kingdom and He will be in our hearts! If Allah in christianity hates sins because sins are not acceptable for Him and His essence and nture, it means that any sinners cannot be in His HOLY presence. Do you know that before to go to pray in Islam you should make wuzu- to be cleansed. It is a symbol in Islam that we all should be cleansed from any sins to come into the presence of God. So, if sins are not acceptable for God it means that lie is not acceptable for Him. If Allah is called in Islam as makir or “best deceiver” (Suras 3:54, 7:99, 8:30, 10:21, 13:42, 4:142, 8:43-44) or torturer (Sura 9:14, 18:30) then let’s submit to the most great God who hates lie, torture and sins and considers lie as a SIN! Because nature of God is LOVE and PERFECTION! There is only One Truth and God Jesus said that He is this TRUTH!
He loves you even if you don’t believe in Him…even if you are confessing Islam – He loves, loved and will love you! He loved you when you were born and even before your birth He knew you and your name! He will always be next to you…believe me…because His LOVE will never be changed for you. How can I be so sure about it? Because He is not a human being to be changed! He is FAITHFUL God! Such perfect God we have, such great LOVE we see, such great love makes us to cry out to Him in repentance, such great love makes us to bow down our hearts and lives before His feet. Such great love wins our souls and makes us to strive to find His face and HIM! Thank you Lord for WHO YOU ARE! God bless all of us today and may He reveal us who He is- the ONE GOD of IBRAHAM, MOSES and JACOB. Lord Jesus, please keep in your faithful hands our lives and souls. Save us. Show us Your right WAY- the ONLY ONE WAY to the ONLY ONE GOD in His Kingdom. The WAY called JESUS CHRIST. Never let us be lost and without You. Wipe away all our tears. Be our God, Love and Purpose of our lives. God we submit to You our hearts and all our inside. Everything belongs to You. Accept our lives and take care of our ways on our road to YOU. Bless us in our life which is the every day SAWM devoted to YOU. Amen.

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,
the Beginning and the End,”
says the Lord,
“who is and who was and
who is to come, the Almighty.”
And when I saw Him,
I fell at His feet as dead.
But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me,
“Do not be afraid;
I am the First and the Last.
I am He who lives,
I am alive forevermore.
And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.
God has so much more for you, walk in His plan, and you will fulfill His great commission for your life just believe in Him.
To believe in Him means to believe in His Son God Jesus, repent and live as God says in Bible. Because God is ONE and He is worthy to be praised.
Therefore thus says the Lord GOD:
“ Behold, I lay in Zion a stone (Jesus Christ) for a foundation, A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; Whoever believes will not act hastily.” Issaiah 28:16
“Listen, O coastlands, to Me,
And take heed, you peoples from afar!
The LORD has called Me (Jesus-it is prophecy about Jesus) from the womb;
From the matrix of My mother He has made mention of My name.
And He has made My mouth like a sharp sword;
In the shadow of His hand He has hidden Me,
And made Me a polished shaft;
In His quiver He has hidden Me.”“ And now the LORD says,
Who formed Me from the womb to be His Servant,
To bring Jacob back to Him,
So that Israel is gathered to Him
(For I shall be glorious in the eyes of the LORD,
And My God shall be My strength),
Indeed He says,
‘ It is too small a thing that You should be My Servant
To raise up the tribes of Jacob,
And to restore the preserved ones of Israel;
I will also give You as a light to the Gentiles,
That You should be My salvation to the ends of the earth.’”
