Assalamu’alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarokatuh
The honorable juries, teachers and the committees Best regards to all the participants and my beloved brothers and sisters
In the name of Allah, the most Merciful and the most Gracious All praises be to Allah SWT, the lord of the world, the master of the day after, the creator of everything in this Universe.
Peace and Salutation be upon our prophet Muhammad SAW, who has brought us from the darkness into the brightness and guided us into the right way of life. Ladies and Gentlemen, In this good opportunity, I would like to deliver a speech entitled “Ramadhan: the Islamic Month of Fasting”. Ramadhan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. It is the Islamic month of fasting
in which Muslims refrain from eating, drinking, and bad attitudes from dawn until sunset. Fasting is meant to teach the Muslim patience, modesty and spirituality.
Ramadhan is a time for Muslims to fast for the sake of Allah SWT and to offer more prayer than usual. During Ramadhan, Muslims ask forgiveness for past sins, pray for guidance and help in refraining from everyday evils, and also try to purify themselves through self-controls.
Brothers and Sisters,
In our country, Ramadhan is not only a fasting month but also a special moment in our society. Many people cheer up Ramadhan with certain ceremonies, such us making cakes and visiting among the family’s members to ask forgiveness. It means that Ramadhan has become a part of our cultures.
In our education activity, the teaching learning process in school during Ramadhan is usually fulfilled with the activities related with the religion. An example of this activity is Ramadhan Boarding School or known as “Pondok Ramadhan”. The main purpose of Pondok Ramadhan is to increase the faithfulness of the students towards Islam. It usually involves the teaching of the Islamic concepts and how to be good Muslims.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
As Muslims, what should we do in this Holy Ramadhan? In my points of view, there are at least four main activities that we should do. The first one is fasting. A good fasting is not only how to refrain from eating and drinking but also how to control ourselves from bad behaviors. The second is reading Qur’an. We all know, Qur’an is the revelation from our God. It contains the guidance of life. By reading Qur’an, we will get blessing and be able to face this life. The third, we carry out special prayers, called “Tarawih”, which are held in the mosques every night of the Ramadhan month. The last, we ask forgiveness to our parents, families and friends. This activity is known as “silaturrahim”, which means taking care of good relationships among the Muslims.
Ladies and Gentlemen;
Brothers and Sisters,
I think that’s all my speech. I hope this speech will be useful for us. Thank you very much for your attention.
Wassalamu’alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarokatuh
