President's Message August 2010

The month of Ramadan is a month in which the Mercy and Blessings of Allah Ta'ala descend upon whole of mankind continuously. The whole Qur'aan was sent down to the first sky from Lawhe Mahfooz. There is the night of Qadr, which is better than 1000 months. The thawaab of good deed is equal to the fardh of another month. The first ten days are of mercy, second ten days are of forgiveness and the last ten days are of being freed from Hell. This is the month of patience and the reward of this patience is Jannah. Abu Hurairah (radhiallahu anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah Sall Allahu alayhi wa sallam said: "Ramadaan has come to you - a blessed month. Allah has made obligatory upon you its fasting. In it, the gates of Heaven are open, the gates of the Hellfire are closed and the evil devils are chained. To Allah belongs a night in it, which is better than a thousand months. Whosoever is prevented from its good, then he has been deprived." (reported by Ahmad and An-Nasaa'ee.) "O Allah! Protect me (from such sicknesses, diseases, etc. that will prevent me from observing the fast of Ramadhan, make the month of Ramadhan clear for me and save me from sins in the month of Ramadhan so that my acts of worship are accepted and not nullified".

This brief guideline (reprinted with permission) on health issues related to Ramadhan is immensely useful for medical doctors, their patients & public at large to know more about health issues related to it in light of Islamic & Shariah principles. May Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala make us from amogst those who are foremost in attaining good deeds.

Dr. Parvaiz Malik, President FIMA
