There are two offers to be performed in the Ramadan month. The first offer is a world with a lot of material discounts such as discounts in shopping centers that the offer the glamor of the world. The second is the direct offer of Allah that is the offer of Taqwa.
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الصِّيَامُ كَمَا كُتِبَ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ
O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may (learn) self-restraint,(Al-Baqarah:183)
There are three requirements: The first is the source of the faithful (iman), the second is the tarbiyah process by fasting, and the third is the pupose in order to piety (Taqwa) to Allah.
Taqwa is the best muslim clothes to wear. The taqwa is the sole prey of the previous and later. Taqwa is the way out when someone is in trouble. Taqwa is the reason for getting help when dead. Taqwa is the path to tranquility.
Taqwa forms a person to be a winner who implemented in the spirit of sharing and empathizing with others.Taqwa leads to what to do and what to avoid.Taqwa is actually the winner in implementing the worship values. One of them manifests in the spirit of sharing. Let’s make the Ramadan month as a means of implementation to achieve the Taqwa that blessings of Allah by sharing to others.
