Ramadan: The fire of extreme desire is called Ramdh and to accept and undergo this experience for the sake of God is the period of Ramadan which is Ayyamun ma’dudat  (counted days). This is necessarily followed by “Eid ul Fitr”, which means therefore that, our pure nature (fitrat e muttahara) should sprout forth after this period too.
