Asalamun alaykum ☺️☺️
Habibi Ramadan would soon arrive 💞😊😍💃💃
This month is very special to me so I have to give it all it deserves 🙈💖
Also, this is a month of self improvement & I need that too 😢
So I’m staying off irrelevancies (like social media )😐
Yes, no WhatsApp , Twitter or whatever . I’ll be totally devoted to making the best out of this month, in sha Allah👌
Below is something I wrote last year to say on assembly in school 🙈
Funny enough , the school counsellor- who isn’t a Muslim – didn’t mind .
He was even giving me additional points 👀
Unfortunately ,I was unable to present it . Why ? Allahu a’lam .
“O ye who believe ! Fasting is prescribed to you , as it has been prescribed to those before you , so that you may attain piety ” suratul Baqarah vs 183
Ramadan is a month of sacrifice & struggle. It is a month where Allah wants our time , health , wealth & our whole being .
It’s just one month…… Can we not live one month solely for our creator⁉️
So what if we have to sacrifice our sleep & luxuries that we can do without anyway 😕
As the saying goes, No Pain, No Gain .
Allah will definitely reward us in this world & the next accordingly 👌
The real purpose of fasting is to attain righteousness. A person who undergoes hunger & thirst , but does not behave righteously, has done nothing 😢😰
The essence of worship is supplication to Allah . This whole month, Allah is willing & readily open to accept all that we ask of Him.
It is only to our loss & detriment that we lack in begging Allah for the things we need .
Prioritize your supplications . Ask for yourself, your family , your community , state, country & the world at large ☺️
Within that, prioritize and ask for things pertaining to the Hereafter & then things pertaining to this world 😃
The month of Ramadan isn’t like any other month, its purpose is to rid man of those bad habits he has accumulated throughout the rest of the year .
It is a month that prepares man for the remaining months by teaching him discipline and self-control .
Allah(subhanahu wa ta’ala) has made some acts beloved to man, like eating, drinking & fulfilling one’s desires , Haram.
If man can control these desires for a month, which are usually permissible to him ,then surely he can control himself from other desires which are not permissible throughout the remaining months 💯👌
The month of Ramadan is a month of reformation , self reflection , where a believer can ponder over spirituality & piety and bring a change for the better 👌
The Prophet(SAW) was reported to have given a sermon in the last day of Shaban “… The month of Ramadan comes with its mercies , blessings & forgiveness . Allah has decreed this month as the best of all months. While fasting , remember the hunger & thirst on the Day of judgement. Give alms to the needy respect your elders, guard your tongue , your eyes & your ears ”
Ali, the cousin of the Prophet (SAW) asked, ” what are the best deeds during this month?”
The Prophet replied” the best of deeds during this month is to be far from what Allah has forbidden ”
Read the Quran because it is the month of the Quran .
Pray in the 3rd part of the night.
Do not fight, curse, backbite, keep malice.
Give alms to the needy .
Subhanallahi , May Allah make it easy for us .
Also , I’ve been telling everyone to make a dua list & self-improvement list for Ramadan.
For the dua list, all you want from Allah ,write it down & ask for them everyday in this blessed month 💖
For self-improvement list, things you want to improve about yourself . Semantics 😒
Okay, I really wanted to have a post about the virtues of Ramadan but alas, I won’t be doing that .
But here are links to go read it up 👇
Peace out ✌️✌️
