We all must fast in Ramadan,
Which is one of the five pillars.
It is a blessed month you know,
We fast for allah, not for show.
It’s designed to make us think,
As we refrain from food and drink.
We feel the hunger and pain,
As much there is for us to gain.
From dawn till dusk we fast,
Hoping that our sawm we fast.
While, try to do much good,
Building taqwa like we should.
Special prayers we say at night
To forgive and guide us as we try.
While ourselves it was in ramadan
When allah revealed the holy quran
And so began the prophet’s call
A guide and mercy to us all
And the night of qadr is unique
It’s blessings all believers seek
Then we follow the day of ‘Eid’ a truly festive day indeed.
Fasting teaches discipline too.
And self-control for me and you.
As year by year we train to be
Better Muslims, by Allah’s decree
