Ramadan is the month wherein the Qur’an was revealed for the guidance of mankind and to serve as the criterion for knowing our rights from wrong. It is the month of fasting, praying, patience, worship, recitation of the glorious Qur’an and seclusion (itikaf). Therefore, every Muslim is obligated to partake in the blessings.

No one seems to be ready to look into the real cause of the terror. Since, it is (at least for the mean time) working in your favor, it seems enjoyable. Right?
