We are All in Need of Self-Rectification

More [important] than anything else is that a person should rectify himself in the Month of Ramadhan. We are in need of self-rectification and self-purification; until the last breath. The messengers are also in need of this. The great Prophets as well. Of course, they understood their needs and acted in pursuit of them. And we, because of being veiled, were not able to comprehend and so did not act upon our responsibilities.
