Shaykh Faraz Rabbani shared five key spiritual lessons related to fasting and the month of Ramadan. These same lessons are a means to prepare for Ramadan and reflection upon changing our relationship with Allah.

These lessons of fasting and Ramadan are taken from verses 183-187 of Sura al-Baqara, and are nurturing:

(1) A living relationship with the Qur’an;
(2) Mindfulness (taqwa) of Allah;
(3) Gratitude (shukr);
(4) Magnifying Allah (takbir), by making Allah the greatest concern in our lives; and
(5) the most important–and ultimate–aim of fasting: realizing the reality of Allah’s Closeness.

This khutba was delivered at the Bosnian Islamic Centre, as part of SeekersGuidance Canada’s community outreach and engagement.
