Dear brothers and sisters!

Ended holy month of Ramadan - the blessed month of observance of Lent. For a whole month we earnestly comply with Fasting a deeply felt awareness that this worship is one of the five pillars of Islam and prescribed to us by the Creator in the Holy Quran!

"يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الصِّيَامُ كَمَا كُتِبَ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ ﴿١٨٣﴾" (سورة البقرة

«Believers! Is prescribed to you Fasting, just as it was prescribed for those who were before you. Maybe you will become more God-fearing»

(al-Baqarah, verse 183).

And because observance of fast is the great honor and dignity for every sincere the believing person, and keepeth his only believer!

Teaches us the Holy Qur'an, the world's only two kinds of people. God's people, who believe in the unity of the Creator, the Day of Judgment, in Scripture, His messengers, the angels and the fate and good, and heavy - it is from Him. Unbeliever same person certainly would not honor any of the canons of religion. Only genuinely believer can observe fasting. Even hypocrites - this layer between believers and non-believers. No one can verify compliance with it post or not. During Lent or special prostrations or kneeling not present - it is a mystery between the believer and the Lord.

That is why the mission of God's messengers Completion Insight most expensive for of our believers of hearts Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) paid so much attention is Lent:

«يا أيها الناس قد أظلكم شهر عظيم، شهر مبارك، شهر فيه ليلة القدر خير من ألف شهر، جعل الله تعالى صيامه فريضة و قيام ليله تطوعاً، من تقرب فيه بخصلة من الخير كان كمن أدى فريضة فيما سواه، و من أدى فريضة فيه كان كمن أدى سبعين فريضة فيما سواه..!»

«About people! - he spoke (peace be upon him) - you made the sign the great blessed month of Ramadan».Autumn - a cloud has covered.We've seen before Ramazan heat was more than 30 degrees. And then a whole month, Al-hamdulillah, at 10-12 degrees even condescended. blessings be upon him, after Ghaith again the heat will.

Insha Allah. «The month of Ramadan which is the Night of Power and Predestination - the same night, about which in the Holy Quran states that it is more blessed than a thousand months.»

This - the month of fasting, which Most High prescribed mandatory – Fard(bound), and left standing prayer nights - voluntary obedience. Doing good this month has performed like a mandatory commandment of Allah, and performed a Fard(bound), compulsory, like a turned 70 commandments of Allah.

و هو شهر الصبر، والصبر ثوابه الجنة..!

و شهر المواساة، و شهر يزاد رزق المؤمن فيه، من فطر فيه صائماً كان مغفرة لذنوبه و عتق رقبته من النار، وكان له مثل أجره من غير أن ينقص من أجره شيئ.

This - the month of patience and temperance, and patience is rewarded with paradise!

Ramadan - a month of compassion and the month in which increases grace and mercy of the Supreme Creator who believe in Him!

Who will feed fasting person during the breaking of the fast-Iftar, it will be reckoned to the forgiveness of sins and the release of geena fiery the fiery, and he will be as much of recompense from God as the post. But do not lose anything in the post from retribution nothing!

قالوا يا رسول الله! ليس كلنا يجد ما يفطر الصائم؟

فقال رسول الله صلى الله تعالى عليه وسلم:"يعطي الله عز و جل هذا الثواب من فطّر صائماً على تمرة أو شربة ماء أو مزْقَة لبن!

و هذا شهر أوله رحمة و أوسطه مغفرة و آخره عتق من النار! فمن خفف عن مملوكه فيه غفر الله تعالى له وأعتقه من النار!

When they asked him (peace be upon him) companions:«Messenger of Allah! Not yet we will find how to feed fasting person?» He (peace be upon him) said: «The Supreme Lord will reward even the one who fasting person during the breaking of at least one a date, a sip of water or milk!»

This month - the beginning of which the mercy, the middle of it -the forgiveness of sins, and the completion Ramadan - the liberation of geena fiery. Who will facilitate this month his ward - Allah will forgive him and frees from fire.

الصلاة عبادة و الصوم جلادة، و الصوم يرقق القلب و يملؤه خشية، فإذا همَّ بطاعة بادر إليها و إذا همَّ بمعصية أعرض عنها

Prayer - it is worship. Fasting the same - Durability! For Fasting softens the heart and fills it with pious devotion. Who fasts, just thinking about doing good, immediately tends commit it because Satan this month not interfere in its affairs, and if suddenly his thoughts something sinful, then resolutely turn away from him!

و الصوم جنة، فإذا كان يوم صوم أحدكم فلا يرفث و لا يفسق و لا يسخب، فإن سابه أحد أو شاتمه فليقل إنّي صائم إنّي صائم

Fasting - a shield and a barrier from all transgressions and sins. And if anyone of you is fasting, let him not swearing, not swear and does not fall into ignorance. And if anyone else is trying to start a bickering with him or quarrel, let him say to him: «I'm fasting person, I have kept Fasting!» And he needs to understand that swear by this time will not work. And this lesson not only in Ramadan, we will always have to try to apply. This is a lesson that teaches us to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

 

Dear brothers and sisters!

Taking the commandment of the Prophet (peace be upon him) not only the mind but the heart and soul, we cannot feel the pain and suffering of those who are in need and adversity, who are hungry, not only during Lent. Suffering, pain, and loss of loved ones, violence and bloodthirsty killing of innocent people in the south-east of Ukraine, and in the holy land of Palestine pain and anger fills the hearts of millions of Russians, all true believers in the One God people of goodwill throughout the world. Terrible disaster that befell the passengers of the Malaysian liner in the sky of Ukraine, shocked not only their loved ones, but all of us. At the same time, we are deeply outraged frenzied lies and double standards of those who try to use any excuse to vent peoples and nations, those who gave thanks before against terrorism, terrorism raises the level of state policy. The peoples of Russia cannot stand idly by this arbitrariness and attempts dictate. Thank God, Crimea escaped this fate. National referendum of its residents expressed a desire to restore historical justice and reunite as part of our unified powers of Russia!

We strongly support the proposed by president of our country's measures aimed at ensuring the independence and unity of our country, reliable protection of its territory, constitutional order timely neutralization of internal and external threats. It is above all: strengthening of interethnic and inter-religious peace and harmony, civil society activism, education of young people in the spirit of patriotism, of responsibility for the fate of the country and effective contribution to the prevention of radicalism and extremism. We, the Muslims of Russia, we express its solidarity with the suffering people of Palestine, and certainly support the efforts of our state to stop the frenzied aggression of the Israeli military, the resumption of peace negotiations and the establishment of peace in this holy for all Jews, Christians and Muslims land. Palestine should be recognized by the world community as an independent state with Jerusalem as surely must be an open city for the followers of the abrahamic tradition of monotheism!

Dear brothers and sisters!

Merciful Lord Allah, subhanahu wa Ta'ala in the Holy Qur'an warns us:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَلْتَنظُرْ نَفْسٌ مَّا قَدَّمَتْ لِغَدٍ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ إِنَّ اللَّه

وَلَا تَكُونُوا كَالَّذِينَ نَسُوا اللَّهَ فَأَنسَاهُمْ أَنفُسَهُمْ أُوْلَئِكَ هُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ 18 خَبِيرٌ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ

«You who believe, Fear God, and let every soul look to what she had prepared for tomorrow. Fear God. A genuinely Allah Almighty Knower about everything that ye do. And do not be like those who forgot God ... And He made them forget themselves ... These (forgotten God and ourselves) is aberrant and the wicked». Daily routine, everyday life can lead to such oblivion. And if you have forgotten God, and the person forgets yourself and who he was, where he was and why? And it may be biorobot soulless, all thought whose only how and where obtain, consume, and then, as free from all this. Exactly imputing post during the whole month of Ramadan, Almighty God hunger, thirst, and abstinence leads us to their senses! Us to remember ourselves, and above all remember God. And hunger is not an aunt!

Fasting elevates and purifies us. With repentance and hope we with the permission of Allah, deeply penetrates conscious piety and godliness. Fasting awakens from a careless attitude towards themselves and indifference to others!

"ما آمن بي من بات شبعاناً و جاره جائع إلى جنبه و هو يعلم" (رواه الطبراني في الأوسط)

«Defective and not sincere faith of the one who falls asleep full, knowing that his neighbor is hungry!» - Commanded us to the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him). Which is why the observance of Lent - is not only and not so much starvation as motivational factor for active wake-up good feelings of compassion and mercy toward the neighbor, to confirm and to strengthen love of the Most High to the Creator and all His creatures. And of course, that all this should be manifested through good deeds, through unselfish assistance to all who need it, all the suffering, and not just during Lent. This lesson we must remember until the next Ramadan. After the end of the blessed Ramadan - Month of Prayer, patience, pious thoughts and of good deeds-every Muslim should give Sadaqah Fitr(charity), i.e. purifying alms equal to a minimum daily food of man.Around the world, at the very least it is necessary to pay 50 rubles for each person, even those who are not keeping the fast, even with a child who was born on the feast day of «Eid ul-Fitr». Worldwide, about 1.5 billion Muslims, $ 3 - $ 5 billion is obtained in one day sadaqah (charity) to the poor, the poor and orphans. It is imperative that small sins during Lent were also forgiven. In our country, in Russia, about 20 million Muslims, it's got $ 60 million in one day sadaqah (charity). And wealthy people, which is obligatory zakat (required donation) should give him 1/40 part of the poor, the poor and orphans.

And best of all in Ramadan because rewarded for it 70 times. This zakat (required donation), and this is one of the five pillars of Islam - submission to God

 

The Holy Qur'an in the very first verses read:

«الم (1) ذَلِكَ الْكِتَابُ لَا رَيْبَ فِيهِ هُدًى لِلْمُتَّقِينَ (2) الَّذِينَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِالْغَيْبِ وَيُقِيمُونَ الصَّلَاةَ وَمِمَّا رَزَقْنَاهُمْ يُنْفِقُونَ»

«Alif-lam-mim»,

Genuine is the book, there is no doubt in it, a pointer to the right path to God-fearing. For those who believe in the unseen, prays (namaz) and hand out of what We have given them for an inheritance». And in the Holy Quran, which would not have been mentioned prayer-prayer, the same God says about Zakat (required donation), donation holders of wealth to the poor and needy.

That's it! - Leveled at us in our strict religious duty of strict observance of Lent, in practice, the Supreme Lord teaches us compassion and mercy. Grateful Praise be to Allah! By His infinite mercy and grace, we, once again following the with great joy and reverence Post, were able again successfully pass this difficult test of God for us. Difficult - about 20 hours of fasting in the day. In Turkey, a couple of hours already less in Saudi Arabia for more than four hours behind. But we still have winter, Insha Allah, through 15 years of winter will keep. We passed a test of God, to broaden and deepen the practice of spiritual purification and elevation of the dignity of man, got another great life lesson in brotherhood and solidarity participation in the needs and concerns of each other. Ramadan tents in mosques, fraternal iftars-Fitr. While holding at the prescribed time, even from our daily bread and water, we have further strengthened yourself in the confrontation the temptations of devil and his own weaknesses, in resolute opposition to the whole forbidden and unacceptable. Strengthened with the help of God, his will, we reached the blessed holiday - «Eid al-Fitr».

Burst of energy, light and high spirits of duty performed gives us all this glorious holiday! How deeply we understand it now, and with what joy we repeat the words of the Most High:

...يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ بِكُمُ الْيُسْرَ وَلَا يُرِيدُ بِكُمُ الْعُسْرَ وَلِتُكْمِلُوا الْعِدَّةَ وَلِتُكَبِّرُوا اللَّهَ عَلَى مَا هَدَاكُمْ وَلَعَلَّكُمْ

تَشْكُرُو(Al-Baqarah, verse 185)

«Wishes you God only relief. He does not want you to difficulties, as long as you have completed the prescribed days of Lent and glorified Allah for what He has guided you to the right path. Perhaps, thank you Him!»

We give Him thanks and prayers of is our sacred duty to remember the good prayers of our parents, spiritual mentors, our ancestors and all those who have served and serves to preserve the faith and fatherland in difficult times in our history. Dear brothers and sisters!

Mutual trust and respect of nations of our boundless motherland and followers of traditional religions, for centuries who divided her joys and sorrows of - have a priceless the gift of God. This gift of, which is preserved for us by previous generations of Russians, is the most precious thing we have left after all gone through for more than seventy years old plantations of state atheism.

That is why We do not tolerate arrogance, arrogance, extremism and terrorism, when the violence and enmity are trying to incite the peoples of the country, God's creation against each other. Fully supporting the government measures on strengthening unity of the country to effectively repel the treacherous forces of international terrorism, we, the Muslims of Russia, together with our Orthodox compatriots and followers of traditional religions of our country and will continue to make a worthy contribution to the preservation of peace, unity and power of our country - of the great Russian !

Even in these blessed days of the holiday, we cannot forget about the current events in the world, scary the tragedies of, disasters and confrontations, especially what is going on in Ukraine, the Middle East and North Africa. They darken our lives, pain and sorrow, with anxiety and respond with compassion in our hearts. Pray to the Almighty Creator for the early restoration of peace, mutual understanding and stability in this troubled region, entreat Him, the Almighty Creator, the strengthening of peace and understanding between peoples and followers of traditional religions of our beloved Motherland, for the prosperity and power of our God Stored of the Great powers – Russia!

Dear brothers and sisters!

Today, a day of joy, a day of Celebration the completion of the holy month of Ramadan of fasting, recollect the Messenger of Allah, Muhammad (peace be upon him) pleased his companions, saying, «Who is completing the post of Holy Ramadan, give myself a vow not to sin after Ramadan - honors of Almighty Allah his mercy and forgiveness ...»

فَإِذَا صَلَّوْا نَادَى مُنَادٍ: أَلاَ إِنَّ رَبَّكُمْ قَدْ غَفَرَ لَكُمْ فَارْجِعُوا رَاشِدِينَ إِلىَ رِحَالِكُمْ. فَهُوَ يَوْمُ الْجَائِزَةِ وَ يَسَمَّى ذَلِكَ الْيَوْمُ فِي السَّمَاءِ يَوْمَ الْجَائِزَةِ." (رواه الطبري في الكبير)

And when the faithful performed prayers - herald may exalt: «Truly your Lord has forgiven your sins, go back to same abode with your firm intention not to return to sin!» And this day is called in heaven «day of reward for good deeds!»

Yes will descend mercy and grace of the Most High Creator in our hearts by and families, communities and temples, villages and cities of our Motherland true peace and the well being of! Blessed be to all of us this holiday season in good health, the purity of faith and a sincere respect for the divine foundations of life, but honors the Almighty Allah to see and rejoice in the recurrence of such dates blessed and sacred holidays for many years!
