Ramadhaan Is At The End..
Ramadan is drawing to a close and we anticipate the arrival of Eid-ul-Fitr, the holiday at the end of the month of Ramadhaan. This is a time of sadness and a time of joy.
Sadness that the blessed month has to end and joy that we hope to have offered our best during the month, and hope that it will be accepted by Allah and that we will be rewarded.
We have fasted to gain Allah-consciousness, self-restraint and piety, we have also felt short-term hunger and thirst. Many of our fellow human beings, Muslims and non-Muslims around the world feel hunger and thirst every day.
A disturbing trend amongst us Muslims is that we take good steps forward during Ramadan. Our manners improve; our worship is increased and with sincerity and our generosity is unsurpassed. But as we takes these great steps forward during Ramadhaan, we seem to end up taking far more steps backwards as the year progresses. For every step forward during Ramadhaan, we’ll take two steps backwards during the rest of the year, and that is undoubtedly a major problem from the problems plaguing our honorable nation.
Let us carry the lessons we gained from Ramadhaan throughout the year so we maintain our focus on Taqwa and pleasing Allah.
We ask Allah, to accept the efforts of all who fasted and enlivened their nights with salaat (prayer) and Dhikr (remembrance of Allah), to grant us forgiveness and to blanket us with His Mercy and to guide us throughout the coming year.
Keep Remembering Me And The Ummah In Your Duas.
