Guidance of the Day

Taking controlof the desires defeats satan. Patience is the key to spiritual wayfaring. If we do not learn patience from the act of fastinf, then we have missed somethingabout this great rite of worship. Scholars throughout the ages recommended that in order to get the most from Ramadan one should not engage in excessive speech,this is an Islamic ethic that should be practiced in general. But in Ramadan, it is especially advised to be vigilant about what we say, since higher fasting involves the tongue. Also it is important to utilize our time well. (Purification of the heart)
