"Oh my, you've been saving that cupcake all day? Boy, you've got willpower!"
The young girl smiled shyly (she did this a lot) and replied,"It's Ramadan, I'm fasting. God gives me willpower. And... I couldn't miss out on 25 cents cupcakes!"
That young girl, namely, being me.
“The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur’aan, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion (between right and wrong)”
"If the servants knew the value of the month of Ramadan, they would like the whole year to be Ramadan."
"O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may (learn) self-restraint."
