I know I am late on this awareness of the dangers during Ramadan. But two horrendous events woke me up. One on June 6th, when it was reported that ISIS had burned alive 19 Yazidi girls and women who refused to have sex with their ISIS captors.1 The second was the Islamic terrorist attack at the gay nightclub known as the Pulse in Orlando – killing over 50 people. This took place early in the morning on the 12th of June.
As we seek guidance as to how to pray in response to the horrific Islamic terrorist attacks and to prevent more evil from being unleashed during Ramadan, we need to go to the spiritual roots of this evil.
