Dagestani Mufti Sheikh Ahmad Afandi congratulated Muslims with Ramadan

Mufti of Dagestan Sheikh Ahmad Afandi
"As-salamu `alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh!
Dear brothers and sisters!
From the bottom of my heart I congratulate you on the arrival of the beloved month of believers - the Holy month of Ramadan!
 
Time from one Ramadan to the next passes incredibly fast, like one instant - this indicates the transience of our life. All praise to the Almighty for giving us the opportunity to see another Ramadan.
 
In this most valuable month for Muslims, the hearts of believers turn away from bad and evil and aspire only towards goodness, for, as our beloved prophet Muhammad ﷺ said: "In Ramadan, the gates of Paradise are open." It was in this bright month that Allah Almighty commanded us to observe the blessed fast.
Fasting in a month of Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam, which imposes commitment to its observance for every Muslim who does not suffer from physical ailments. An important condition for observing fasting in the month of Ramadan is also abstention from slander, lies, disputes, bad thoughts - everything that harms our spiritual states and purity of intentions.
 
The greatest advantage of the month of Ramadan is the presence in it of the Night of Power - "Lailatul-qadr". The value of this night is greater than the value of a thousand months, it was on this night that the Noble Qur'an was revealed, so many angels descend to the earth on this night, approaching the believers. Reward for all the good that we have done this night is multiplied many times. Therefore, I urge you not to miss this most precious time - the time of forgiveness of sins and the mercy of Allah.
The merits of Ramadan are numerous, and therefore our zeal for a blessed month should be equally appropriate.
 
Do not forget about those to whom you can help, since it is our duty to the Creator. As far as possible, increase the sadaqah (alms) to the needy.
 
May the Almighty help us all to spend this inestimable time righteously, spend more nights in the worship of the Creator, read the Quran and bring joy to loved ones. 
May Allah accept all the good deeds of the Muslims, grant His mercy and save the inhabitants of the whole world, from various troubles and suffering. Amin!
