The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey - then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful. [2:185]
Ramadhan finally came. And alhamdulillah, we were given the chance to experience this month again. So what have you done so far in celebrating this festival of worship?
Perform ibadah as much as you can! This could be our LAST chance to make necessary changes to ourselves and the way we live our lives. We must never deceive ourselves thinking that we always have the next Ramadhan to change. This is pure deception of the shaytan. We must live everyday like it is our last day because it very well could be.
Thus, what are you waiting for? Let's CHANGE right NOW. Let's start to be consistent and maintain all the good things we've acquired throughout this month. We must learn to control our tongues and abandon false speech like lying, slandering, gossiping, swearing etc.
The Prophet, (SalAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Whoever does not abandon lying and evil actions, Allah is not in need of him abandoning his food and his drink” (Al Bukhari)
“In Ramadan, you should eat less and think more.” ― Tariq Ramadan
Let's refine the TRUE meaning of Ramadhan, thus it'll be PERFECT. Don't just celebrate Ramadhan by mere words, but also by performing lots and lots of ibadah. Happy Ramadhan dear readers! Do forgive my past mistakes and may Allah bless you.
1st Ramadhan 1433.
