Ramadan Kareem to all. Alhamdulilah, Allah [SWT] has give us the tawfique to enter into this month and that is a blessing in and in of itself. So many people who were there last Ramadan are not with us today so treat every Ramadan as your last one.
This shar – this month is a month full of so many blessings that we can’t even begin to touch upon them. There is a famous ahadith in which two sahaaba passed away, one a martyr and the other next year in his bed. And yet the other Sahaaba [ra] had a dream that the one who had passed a year later had entered into Jannatal Firdaws earlier then the martyr. When asked, RasoolAllah sallahu ‘alayhi wasallam replied that yes, it is because of the upper hand he had on his friend by coming upon Ramadaan and fasting and his Qiyaam he maintained in that year.
So reflect and ponder and try to attain as much ajar in this month as you can. Who knows? This could be your last.
And last but not the least, fasting in this month is not just about refraining from food and drink, but refraining from sinning, for the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam has said, ‘“Whoever does not give up false speech and acting in accordance with it, and ignorant conduct, Allaah has no need of him giving up his food and drink.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari.
TaqabbalAllahu minna wa minkum.
PS – As a Ramadaan objective I will be sending less time online so therefore, less blog posts, inshaAllah. 🙂
