Across the world, Muslims are currently observing Ramadan, a month long celebration of self-purification and restraint. During Ramadan, the Muslim recite Quran, do fast, abstaining from food, drink, smoking and sex between sunrise and sunset. Muslims break their fast after sunset with an evening meal called Iftar, where a date is the first thing eaten followed by a traditional meal. During this time, Muslims are also encouraged to read the entire Quran, to give freely to those in need, and strengthen their ties to God through prayer. The goal of the fast is to teach humility, patience and sacrifice, and to ask forgiveness, practice self-restraint, and pray for guidance in the future.

With the advent of technology and leading to shortages of time and other resources, religion is becoming less of something very important. Where ISLAM is not just any religion as it is the best to follow among all the existing and The Holy Book “Quran” is the divine source of guidance

For the entire mankind and this is where you are advised that do not ignore such a revelation by True God, Allah (SWT) and there is no doubt that Quran provides the very minute details for you to understand and make the best out of your understanding whether its science or Shariah law

In the Quran chapter 2:38, it is stated as such: 'We said: Get ye down all from here; and if, as is sure, there comes to you guidance from Me, whosoever follows My guidance on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve' (2:38).

The plaintiff used the following ayahs from the Quran to argue that to convert from Islam to other religions is allowed in Islam: “Let there be no compulsion in religion” (Surah Al-Baqarah 2:256).

And dispute ye not with the People of the Book, except with means  better (than mere disputation), unless it be with those of them who inflict  wrong (and injury): but say, “We believe in the Revelation which has come down to us and in that which came down to you; our God and your God is One; and it is to Him we bow (in Islam).” (Surah Al ‘Ankabut: 29:46)
