Mufti of Xanthi Mustafa Trampa published a message on the occasion of Ramadan.
The Ramadan message of Mustafa Trampa, Mufti of Xanthi, is as follows: Dear Muslim Turkish Brothers, "We are experiencing the great joy and excitement of meeting the blessed month of Ramadan. Praise be to our Lord, who brought us to such a blessed month when fasting, five daily obligatory prayers as well as tarawih prayers are performed, suhoor is performed, rewards are recited, alms and zakat are given, in short, the peak is reached with worship and obedience. let it be. Ramadan is a month full of virtues. The Qur'an speaks of the month of Ramadan as follows: "The month of Ramadan is the month in which the Qur'an was revealed as a guide to people, clear proofs of truth and discrimination. Therefore, whoever of you reaches this month should fast.” (Baccarat – 185) This year, Ramadan begins on Thursday, March 23, 2023. The first tarawih will be performed on Wednesday, March 22, 2023 and suhoor will be performed on the same night. The month of Ramadan has taken its importance from the Quran. Because the Qur'an, which is a light for hearts, a cure for hearts, a mercy for believers, and a guide to all humanity, started to be revealed in the Night of Power in this month. Dear Brothers, Ramadan is the month of fasting. Allah has made it obligatory for believers to fast in this month. Our Almighty Lord has said in the Qur'an: "O you who believe! Fasting has been made obligatory on you as it was made obligatory on the nations before you. It is hoped that you will be protected (from evil by fasting).” (Baccarat 183) Our Prophet (pbuh) said in a hadith: "When the month of Ramadan starts, the gates of heaven are opened, the gates of hell are closed, and the devils are chained." It is seen that; This month, when the gates of Paradise are opened, the gates of Hell are closed, and the devils are chained, is the month of fasting for believers. For this reason, a Muslim will fast in this month. Because fasting is not just staying hungry and thirsty, it is opening the heart to Allah and looking at life as Allah has commanded. Regarding the virtues of this month, our Prophet explains: “This month is the month of patience. The place where the patient will go is Paradise. This month is the month of getting along. In this month, believers' sustenance increases. If a person gives iftar to a fasting person in this month, his sins will be forgiven. Allah will free him from the fire of Hell. He will receive as much reward as the fasting person.” The Ashâb-i-kirâm said, “O Messenger of Allah! Not every one of us is rich enough to give iftar to a fasting person and feed him." said, Our Prophet "sall-Allâhu 'alaihi wa sallam" said: "The same reward will be given to those who give iftar with one date, to break the fast with only water, or to offer some milk. This month is such a month that its first days are mercy, its middle is forgiveness and forgiveness, and its end is freedom from Hell.” The following hadith of our Prophet (pbuh) is very meaningful regarding the evaluation of this month: “Do 4 things a lot this month! Allahu Teala loves both of them very much. These are uttering kalima-i shahadah and asking for forgiveness. You should always do both. These are to seek Paradise from Allahu Teala and to seek refuge in Him from the fire of Hell.” Dear Kinsmen, The Blessed Month of Ramadan; with the fasts kept, the tarawih prayers performed, the beauties of the suhoor, the recitations of the Quran recited in the recitals, the hatims, the sermons, the tahajjud prayers that are performed before the suhoor, the excitement of the moment of iftar, the spiritual enthusiasm of the night of power, the goodness and goodness, the fitra and the morning zakat, it is the harvest time of a life we live with joy This blessed month is a month when hearts soften, demons are chained, souls are broken, and people's human feelings are at their highest. The Prophet states the following in a hadith: "If the servants knew the advantages of Ramadan, they would want the whole year to be Ramadan." The Month of Ramadan is a month of great importance that should be evaluated in the best way. This month; It is the month in which we repent and get rid of all sins by presenting our repentance to Allah. Our Prophet (pbuh) states the following in a hadith: "Whoever revives the month of Ramadan by believing in his rewards and with the intention of obtaining it, his past sins will be forgiven." Ramadan month; It is a month in which we worship to the fullest, review the relationship between Allah and servant, who created us, and get closer to Him. In this month, it is the month of letting go of resentment and being a brother and sister. This blessed month is the month of charity, where we wish for others what we want for ourselves, reach the peak of our feelings of compassion, take care of the poor and orphans, and extend our helping hand to the needy. In short, the Month of Ramadan; It is the month of us, who are the ashraf-i mahlukat (honorable creatures), to find ourselves as real human beings and more sincere Muslims. Let's live and let live the spiritual enthusiasm of this blessed month of Ramadan together. Let's please and visit our elders. Let's love and delight the little ones. Let's kiss the hands of our parents. Let's perform our tarawih prayers in unity and solidarity, keep our fasts, and most importantly, strengthen our servitude. On this occasion, my humble advice is let's love and respect each other. Let's not upset each other for small interests. Let's support each other. It does not fit in Islam for one of us to feel comfortable while the other is hungry and in need. Let's visit the sick, support the students and the poor in this month of worship. With these feelings and thoughts, I congratulate all of you on the month of Ramadan, and I pray that this blessed month will bring blessings to the Islamic world and the Turkish World, and to the unity and health of the Western Thrace Muslim Turkish Minority."
