It’s the season of Ramadan, the Islamic month of fasting & praying and whether you are of a different faith, everyone can relate to a time of reflecting and mediation. Ramadan teaches Muslims about patience, spirituality, humility, and submissiveness to God. Reflection helps us become more grateful for life and loving towards one another. During this time Muslims believe Ramadan to be an auspicious month for the revelations of God to humankind.
The act of fasting is said to redirect the heart away from worldly activities, its purpose being to cleanse the inner soul and free it from harm. During Ramadan, Muslims slow down from worldly affairs and focus on self-reformation, spiritual cleansing and enlightenment.This is to establish a link between themselves and God through prayer, supplication, charity, good deeds, kindness and helping others.
Even if you practice a different faith, we believe self-reformation and cleansing is beneficial to the mind and spirit. Here at IJORERE, We are inspired by the power of prayer, reflection, and Godliness.
And in honor of Ramadan, here’s a palette board we hope might get you a little inspired to reflect and say a little pray!
May your day be IJORERE
