There is no Deity but Allah
And Muhammed (sallallahu alayhi wa salaam) is the Messenger of Allah.

Greetings to all readers and friends, for the holy month of Ramzaan.

And greetings from the heart to many dear friends who have been in observance of the pious edicts which apply to this month of penance and fasting.  (This post was planned to be published much earlier, but certain circumstances intervened.  As we are nigh on the closing days of this month, this post could not have been delayed further.)

Ramzan (also pronounced as Ramadan) is the ninth month according to Islamic Lunar calendar. Ramadan begins after the month of Shaban, after the new moon has been sighted.  It is a time of spiritual reflection, improvement and increased devotion and worship.  It is a celebration, as well as an emulation, of the first revelation of the teachings of the Holy Quran, handed down to Prophet Mohammed (PBUH).  The observance of fasting during this month is one of the five pillars of Islamic beliefs and teachings.

Ramzan is derived from the Arabic root word ‘ramida’ or ‘arramad’ that means intense scorching heat and dryness, especially of the ground. Ramadan is so called to indicate the heating sensation in the stomach as a result of thirst. This intense heat is said to scorch out the sins, just as the hot sun burns the ground in summers.  It is also said that during this month of fasting, the hearts and souls are more receptive to the admonition and remembrance of Allah, as the sand and stones are to receive the sun’s heat.

During this month, the people who fast will not partake anything to eat or drink (including water) from dawn till after sunset. Besides this, there are other disciplines prescribed to control other senses also.  The tongue is supposed to refrain from backbiting, slander, and lies; the eyes should refrain from looking into things considered as unlawful; the ears must not listen to conversations and words that spoil the spirit of fasting; and finally restraining the heart and mind from indulging in activities other than the ‘Zikr of Allah’ (remembrance of Allah).

Also when one feels hunger and thirst, one is supposed to remember other people in the world who do not have food and water. Charity (Zakat, Sadqaah) is one of the extremely recommended acts during fasting. There are various instructions of the Prophet (PBUH) where He has said that any charity made during this month of discipline, is multiplied up to 70 times. If some people are poor and cannot afford to give money then even a smile is an act of charity.

Each day, before dawn, the persons observing the fasting discipline, partake a pre-fast meal called the suhur. After stopping a short time before dawn, they will begin the first prayer of the day, Fajr.  At sunset, the fast is broken with a traditional meal known as iftar.

As stated, this month is for spiritual reflections.  It is a time to talk about the glories of the Lord, and to bask in the pleasures of his piety and beneficence.  It is a time to spend time to read the teachings of the Holy Quran, and to re-strengthen the beliefs and convictions.  It is a time to be thankful for the provisions He has made for us, and to be aware that many more are lacking even what we have, and so we share.

Above all, a time to praise the glories of the Lord.  This ‘hamd’ is a wonderful expression of the praise and thankfulness that so rightly captures the spirit of reflection.

teri zaat paak hai ai khuda
teri shaan jall e jalaal hu

O the most dignified, the most magnificent
Your standing, Your eminence is the purest and wholesome
May the glories of Your dignity and splendor, be glorified
[Note: zaat = category, standing
paak = pure
jall e jalaalhu = may the glories be glorified]

karoon wasf tera bayaan kya
teri shaan jall e jalaal hu

Your qualities, Your attributes are endless
We are incapable and limited
To express them in words
May the glories of Your dignity and splendor, be glorified
[Note: wasf = qualities, attributes
bayaan = express, speak]

tera chaand taaron mein noor hai
har ik shai mein tera zahoor hai

The luminescence in the moon and the stars
Comes from you
Every entity, every being is
Because of your eminence
[Note: zahoor = eminence, glow]

ye nazar nazar ka hai faasla
kisi dil se tu nahin door hai

You are never separate from any heart
Though some may not see it as such
It is their vision, their belief
That causes the distance

tera jalwa ya rabb har jageh
teri shaan jall e jalaal hu

Your grandeur, Your Opulence
It is all around to see
May the glories of Your dignity and splendor, be glorified

wo ghareeb hain ya ameer hain
tere dar pe aa ke fakir hain

The poor and the rich
Become all the same
As beggars at your door

hui jis pe nazar e karam teri
wo jahaan mein phir na haqeer hain

One who is blessed
With Your glance of benefaction
No more remains a needy in this world
[Note: haqeer= needy]

jise tu mila usey sab mila
teri shaan jall e jalaal hu

One who achieves You
Achieves everything there is
May the glories of Your dignity and splendor, be glorified

This wonderful ‘hamd’ (song of praise and honor for the Lord Almighty) is from the film ‘Main Hoon Alladin’ from 1965.  The singing voice is that of Usha Khanna, who is also the composer of the melody of this song. The words are from the pen of Farooque Qaiser.  There is a video link available, but the song is incomplete.  I have also uploaded the complete audio of this song.

In this holy month of Ramzaan, may the glories of Allah be recounted a million times.  May the penance and prayers bring happiness, prosperity and peace for all.

Lyrics

teri zaat paak hai ai khuda
teri shaan jall e jalaal hu
karoon wasf tera bayaan kya
teri shaan jall e jalaal hu

tera chaand taaron mein noor hai
har ik shai mein tera zahoor hai
ye nazar nazar ka hai faasla
kisi dil se tu nahin door hai
tera jalwa ya rabb har jageh
tera jalwa ya rabb har jageh
teri shaan jall e jalaal hu
teri zaat paak hai ai khuda
teri shaan jall e jalaal hu
karoon waqf tera bayaan kya
teri shaan jall e jalaal hu

wo ghareeb hain ya ameer hain
tere dar pe aa ke fakir hain
hui jis pe nazar e karam teri
wo jahaan mein phir na haqeer hain
jise tu mila usey sab mila
jise tu mila usey sab mila
teri shaan jall e jalaal hu
teri zaat paak hai ai khuda
teri shaan jall e jalaal hu
karoon waqf tera bayaan kya
teri shaan jall e jalaal hu

तेरी ज़ात पाक है ए खुदा
तेरी शान जल्ले-जलाल हू
करूँ वस्फ़ तेरा बयान क्या
तेरी शान जल्ले-जलाल हू

तेरा चाँद तारों में नूर है
हर इक शै में तेरा ज़हूर है
ये नज़र नज़र का है फासला
किसी दिल से तू नहीं दूर है
तेरा जल्वा या रब्ब हर जगह
तेरा जल्वा या रब्ब हर जगह
तेरी शान जल्ले-जलाल हू
तेरी ज़ात पाक है ए खुदा
तेरी शान जल्ले-जलाल हू
करूँ वस्फ़ तेरा बयान क्या
तेरी शान जल्ले-जलाल हू

वो ग़रीब हैं या अमीर हैं
तेरे दर पे आ के फक़ीर हैं
हुई जिस पे नज़र ए करम तेरी
वो जहां में फिर ना हकीर हैं
जिसे तू मिला उसे सब मिला
जिसे तू मिला उसे सब मिला
तेरी शान जल्ले-जलाल हू
तेरी ज़ात पाक है ए खुदा
तेरी शान जल्ले-जलाल हू
करूँ वस्फ़ तेरा बयान क्या
तेरी शान जल्ले-जलाल हू
