Written by Imtiyaz Pandow From predawn to dusk, an empty stomach of long fasts. The remembrance of Creator for all. The empathetic approach toward humanity. The donation of Sadqa and Zakat. The endless recitation of holiest verses of Holy Quran. The wait for Iftaari to break the fast with fresh dates and fruits, with soul-cooling elixir of Rooh Afza and milk-soaked seeds of Basil. The countless blessings

of Lailat-ul-Qadr,

of Sahoor and Iftari, of everyday and last Friday. This practice of being consistent for every good deed keep burning the sins, so ash-less! As no traces left behind. O' the Illuminator of hearts, We seek your guidance.

O' the most


We seek your mercy. O' the Most Forgiver! We seek your forgiveness.
