Important meals worth hikes go in opposition to the rules of God


Ramadan is claimed to be the holiest of the holy seasons that happen solely annually and brings peace, pleasure, love, concord, and happiness into the lives and souls of all and brings out the perfect in all.

Wealthy or poor, it doesn’t matter, Allah-loving, God-fearing folks unite as one large completely happy household in prayer for the advantage of every particular person, and the nation at massive and in solemn homage to the Almighty.

Nonetheless large, the sanctified and revered Biswa Ijtema prayer pageant gathering in Tongi is annually, it’s comparatively small compared to the potential 175-million minds and souls of a nation that unite every day in solemn prayer throughout Ramadan, looking for redemption and forgiveness from sins of the previous and promising to make amends.

Ought to aliens be observing, nonetheless, it should be extraordinarily troublesome for them to know the way it’s attainable for these inside the confines of the holy mosques providing unbridled loyalty, profound devotion, and unconditional like to Allah, to have their footwear stolen from outdoors. What sort of folks would do such a factor particularly at a holy place?

It signifies not all Muslims have studied the Qur’an or abide by its teachings.

A clearer indication of not abiding by the Qur’an is the escalation of important meals objects throughout the holy month. It should be perplexing for the aliens to look at the costs shoot up with none justification in anyway (apart from greed) throughout this, the holiest of holy months.

The culprits conveniently overlook it must be precisely reverse when costs must be on the rock-bottom lowest… when folks must be on their finest habits… when folks must be stretching a hand of friendship and providing assist to their brothers and sisters who’ve fallen on exhausting instances? In any case, it’s Ramadan.


One could be justified in asking who in March is answerable for erecting the detour signal that diverts Muslims in Bangladesh from the sanctified Islamic values recorded within the holy Qur’an?

There are numerous folks, who battle to place meals on the desk at the perfect of instances, and feed the open hungry mouths of their offspring. Ramadan must be a interval that’s anticipated with pleasure that provides respite from their yearlong struggling via reasonably priced meals costs.

The price of important meals provides throughout Ramadan is outrageous. Low-income earners and poor folks particularly, simply can’t afford to purchase correct healthful meals to feed themselves and their household.

In instances of conflict, the sturdy makes slaves of the weak. In instances of peace, the wealthy makes slaves of the poor. Throughout Ramadan widespread decency and consideration for the poor and low earners goes out the window and a ‘take-it-or-leave-it’ perspective hovers over most market stalls.

If merchants and suppliers can’t present compassion and prolong a serving to hand to their downtrodden brothers and sisters throughout the holy month of Ramadan, what hope is there for Bangladesh to ever change into Sonar Bangla, spiritually or bodily?

It’s all nicely and good to learn holy books just like the Qur’an, Torah, and Bible even to recite passages verbatim from them, but when the reader is just not training in his or her every day life what they learn, there’s little level. It quantities to nothing greater than unadulterated hypocrisy, which pleases neither God nor man.

Most scoundrel merchants view Ramadan not because the holy season, however the season to lift their costs and make extra cash. And they might regard that as a Godsend… a blessing. They fail to spot the fantastic thing about Ramadan fully.


Ramadan is particular. It’s sacred. It’s the one time within the 12 months when He applies a ‘cease what you’re doing’ brake to the common all-year-round actions and asks His devotees to Pause, Mirror, Double-Examine their compass bearings and see in the event that they’re on the fitting path to deserve His gratitude and blessings.

Allah couldn’t probably condone unjustified worth will increase, particularly throughout Ramadan. That might be preposterous and sinful. Ramadan isn’t a month for taking, however for giving, and exhibiting compassion and kindness to these worse off than ourselves.

It’s incomprehensible to assume that these answerable for the value hikes will really go down on their knees (seemingly with out aware) on the mosques and beg God to bathe blessings upon them and their households, when the identical individuals are depriving meals from the hungry mouths of Allah’s youngsters within the identify of ‘enterprise’.

Some folks assume they’re not responsible as a result of they haven’t been caught. Different folks assume they’ve escaped scot-free as they stay the finer life of their multi-million greenback properties constructed on the proceeds from terrorizing and evicting folks from their household properties and stealing their land, and suchlike.

They’re forgetting God mentioned, “Vengeance is mine” and that He works in mysterious methods. Whereas they, personally, could indirectly undergo the horror of most cancers, kidney illness, or suchlike or get run-over by a bus, as punishment, their baby or grandchild may; and that might be an much more devastating blow to them.

There may be nonetheless a bit time left to decrease the costs of important meals objects for Eid ul-Fitr 2024 and make good, but when nothing else is discovered from Ramadan this 12 months it must be to make sure the true spirit of holy Ramadan is upheld subsequent 12 months thence and folks don’t undergo via the greed of others.

That’s a message all Imams ought to think about delivering of their homilies to help and defend the welfare of their congregation and assist put an finish to the immoral sordid apply that strangle and suffocate the God-given pleasures of Ramadan.
