Ramadan: A Time to Ponder and Pray

2015 Vol. 4: July/Aug

It was the month of Ramadan and the time of Tarabiii prayers,” says Rafiqueiii. “I had been fasting for more than three weeks and tonight was the special night called Lailatul-Qadriv, the night of a thousand nights to seek the special blessings of Allah. I was sitting lined up and ready to begin my prayers. I looked to see the imam who was going to lead the prayers that night, but found that none was in front. While I was in a trance-like state of consciousness, I wondered in my mind, ‘We are all ready for prayers, but where is the imam who will lead us?’”
