بسم الله الرحمان الرحيم

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

الحمد لله, Allaah has brought us to yet another Ramadhaan.  May Allaah grant us all the full reward, benefit, mercy, & forgiveness that characterize this most blessed of months!

Although we all know, we also know that reminders benefit the believers.  So please take this time to remember that & remind ourselves and one-another that, despite all that this month brings in terms of mercy, forgiveness, and freedom from the Hellfire, we should not take it for granted.  How easy it is to lose the reward of fasting if we continue to indulge in the same sins we practice throughout the rest of the year?  How easy, in a moment of anger, can we lose a days worth of reward if we are not careful?  How little Allaah is in need of our refraining from food & drink if we do not refrain, as well, from backbiting and slandering others?

Moreover, how easily we can get caught-up in the festivities and enjoyment of the traditions brought about by our various cultures regarding this blessed month, and most of them will bring us no benefit in the afterlife, indeed, because they were not from the practices of the Messenger of Allaah, salallaahu ʿalayhi wa sallam, nor of his companions.  We all look forward to the special things of this great month, but let them not overshadow the true meaning and purpose of it – seeking the mercy, forgiveness, and security from the Hellfire of Allaah.  Enjoy the special treats of Ramadhaan that our mothers make for us, but don’t forget that what is truly special is what Allaah has promised those who seek it – namely, the aforementioned mercy, forgiveness, and freedom from the Hellfire.

And these are not attained by eating and drinking throughout the night, but from swollen feet and sleepy eyes that spend the night in the prayer and from sore hands and tired legs that spend the day giving out charity and seeking more good deeds to perform.

So, we should all ask Allaah to grant us the means of seeking the maximum good that can be attained from this glorious, blessed month.  Yaa Allaah, grant us that and more to the limit of your Mercy.  Aameen!

    […] لله, it’s Ramadhaan once again!  Granted, I’m a bit late, but I posted elsewhere in a more timely fashion, so I guess I have some kind of an excuse.  ِAnyway, while this is […]
