The most important thing to do in Ramadhan

Sayyidi wa sanadi Mawlana Mohammad Taqi Usmani (Allah preserve him) advised an individual in Haram shareef, Makkah e mukarramah, last night after taraweeh salah;

“There are many things people do in Ramadan. For example, excessive zikir, lot of tilawat e Quran, etc. But the most important thing to do is what is mentioned in this verse:

گوش بندو چشم بند و لب ببند

That is, to save your hearing, sight, speech and the heart (thoughts) from being involved in all that is unlawful.

The major emphasis should be on abstaining from all disobedience of Allah.”

Allah gives us the tawfeeq to do so. Ameen!
