In the name of Allah, the most Gracious, the most Merciful
(2:183) O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may self-restraint.
(2:184) [Fasting for] a prescribed number of days. So whoever among you are ill or on a journey [during them] – then an equal number of days [are to be made up]. And upon those who are able [to fast, but with hardship] – a ransom [as substitute] of feeding a poor person [each day]. And whoever volunteers excess – it is better for him. But to fast is best for you, if you only knew.
(2:185) The month of Ramadan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey – then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful.
(2:186) And when My servants ask you concerning Me – indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided.
(2:187) It has been made permissible for you the night preceding fasting to go to your wives [for sexual relations]. They are clothing for you and you are clothing for them. Allah knows that you used to deceive yourselves, so He accepted your repentance and forgave you. So now, have relations with them and seek that which Allah has decreed for you. And eat and drink until the white thread of dawn becomes distinct to you from the black thread [of night]. Then complete the fast until the sunset. And do not approach them as long as you are staying for worship in the mosques [I’htikaf]. These are the limits [set by] Allah, so do not approach them. Thus does Allah make clear His ordinances to the people that they may guard themselves against evil.
(2:189) They question you about the new moon. Tell them: it is to determine the periods of time for the [benefit of] mankind and for the Hajj. It is not righteous to enter your houses from the back doors. Righteousness is to fear Allah. Enter your houses through the proper doors and fear Allah so that you may prosper.
(2:195) And spend in the way of Allah and do not throw [yourselves] with your [own] hands into destruction [by refraining]. And do good; indeed, Allah loves the doers of good.
(97:1) Indeed, [It is] We [Who] sent this [Quran] down on the Night of Glory.
(97:2) And what will make you realize what the Night of Glory is?
(97:3) The Night of Glory is better than a thousand months.
(97:4) That night the angels and the [holy] spirit descend, by the permission of their Lord, for every [decreed] matter.
(97:5) It is all peace until the break of dawn.
