Ramadhan, the month of ritual fasting, is a special and blessed period for Muslims. It was the month in which the revelations of the Qur'an descended from Allah, through Jibra'il (the Angel of revelation), to the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace).
The essence of Ramadhan is to change one's way to become a better person-one who remains conscious of Allah throughout his or her life.
The central idea of this book developed from a series of talks given by the author to Muslim youth during the month of Ramadhan. It was felt that this would meet the need for a simple informative guide to young Muslims and would also be useful as a teaching resource for parents, teachers and any other interested people, whether they be Muslim or not.
