Muslim is obligated to fast in the month of ramadhan being the third principle of Islam. There are 5 principles altogether, the first is Syahadah (taking oath that there's no God but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah), second is Praying (5 times obligatory prayers/daily), fourth is giving Alm to the poor (Zakat) and the last is performing Hajj once in a lifetime for those who can afford the trip. The same principles are basically given to the people of the book, i.e. other monotheist. My sisters and brothers in the same beliefs, please refer to your Holy Book respectively to find out the same direction given by the Lord.
Muslim beliefs that toward the end of the 30 days fasting, i.e in the last 10 nights of ramadhan, there will be a bless night where an angel and the Holy spirit will descend to earth to witness who had bow down to Allah seeking forgiveness for all their sins, committed since long time (fresh or old). There is a special chapter about the said bless night, "Laylatul Qadr", i,e, Al-Qadr where Allah has said that the night of power is indeed greater than a thousand months, hence, seek forgiveness (praying, reading Al-Quran and performing non-obligatory night prayers etc for we shall get our sins pardon by Allah... Allahualam). The translation of Al-Qadr are in below paragraph.
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
1. We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power:
2. And what will explain to thee what the night of power is?
3. The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.
4. Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by Allah.s permission, on every errand:
5. Peace!...This until the rise of morn!
Above all, I wish everyone of us, a believer in the Holy Book, the Christians, the Jewish and especially the Muslim to go back to the Book's teaching. Do good, do not sin, do not spread hatred and ill thoughts, love one another, have lots of loves and compassion's in our heart towards our brothers and sisters and most importantly, lets put aside racism and different beliefs and join hands to make this world as a better place. We all will meet our creator one day and only He has the only absolute authority to judge, the only One who knows all secrets and what's in our heart. Let's pray for all of us. Peace!!!!
