Taqwa – Consciousness

Ramadan is a time of reflection and introspection for Muslims around the world. One of the main aspects of the month is to fast the daylight hours, making the choice to abstain from what would usually be allowed. 

God mentions in the Quran, that the reason we fast is to highlight and enhance a quality known as Taqwa within us.

Taqwa refers to an inner consciousness of God, and by perfecting this, one can hope to gain a closer relationship with their Maker. 

The constant reminder that your usual daily routine has been disrupted, allows you to think more broadly about life and existence in general, and how God fits in within this. By putting God at the forefront of our thoughts and actions, it allows us to streamline our choices, enabling us to enhance Taqwa, God consciousness, within us.
