About This Book:
"The Virtue of Siyam & Qiyam During the Month of Ramadan" is a theme that emphasizes the unique significance of Muslims fasting (siyam) and standing in night prayers (qiyam) during the holy month of Ramadan.
Muslims throughout the world fast from dawn to sunset during Ramadan as an act of devotion and obedience to Allah (God). Fasting throughout this month is one of Islam's Five Pillars and has enormous spiritual and moral importance. It entails abstaining from food, drink, and other bodily requirements during the day, but simultaneously focusing on heightened worship, self-reflection, and charitable activities. Qiyam prayers, also known as Taraweeh prayers, are done at night throughout Ramadan. These additional prayers are given after the mandatory Isha prayer and include recitations from the Quran. Qiyam allows Muslims to perform additional acts of worship, beg forgiveness, and strengthen their relationship with Allah.
During Ramadan, the combination of siyam (fasting) and qiyas (night prayers) is heavily stressed in Islamic beliefs. During this beautiful month, Muslims believe that the benefits of acts of prayer, generosity, and spiritual devotion are increased. During the month of Ramadan, the virtue of Siyam and Qiyam represents the spiritual advantages and blessings that come with these acts of devotion.
