Let's Team Up with Ramadan!
Project Sakinah and Ramadan are natural partners. We go along the same lines.
Ramadan requires one to be loving and merciful not just toward family and neighbors
but towards all creatures while fasting and focusing on one's relationship with
the Creator of all. This extensive control on one's negative behavior and longer
worship hours during taraweeh prayers and throughout the day bring tranquility (Sakinah)
in people's minds and lives who actually indulge themselves into fasting and other
routine rituals of the month with sincerity.
Ramadan also brings family, friends and communities together in a big way. People
open their hearts and homes for each other. People share not only their meals but
also their time, wealth and other blessings with the community members. This is
why, Ramadan gatherings are the largest and the most meaningful gatherings of the
Project Sakinah too gathers community to talk about growing strong, violence free
families. We team up with organizations and community members to bring programs
and workshops to the communities that would help individuals in controlling their
anger, resolving their family conflicts, raising their children and taking care
of their elderly with love and mercy. We aim to bring sakinah, the tranquility,
in each household through our team work, inshaAllah.
