Arrival of the Blessed Month {Ramadan}

Asalamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.

May peace, mercy and blessings of Allah be upon you.

Alhamdulilah, we have been blessed with another Ramadan. Allah has given us a great opportunity to become closer to Him. If we were to ponder on how blessed we are, our hearts would soften with love and gratitude to Our Creator.

How many people were with us last year but are not with us today? Every day we have is a precious gift from Allah. So let us use our time to do good deeds whilst we are alive; we never know which breath will be our last.

In this blessed month of Ramadan, we become more aware that Allah is watching us. We become more cautious to avoid sinning. We realise that Our Creator knows everything we do and none of our actions are hidden from Him, whether they are good or bad. Therefore, we strive to do deeds that please Allah in hopes that He may forgives us, have mercy on us and reward us for our efforts.

Allah is Ash-Shakoor, The Most Appreciative, the One who acknowledges our good deeds and appreciates them. Even if no one recognises your struggles, remind yourself that your reward is with Allah. May Allah reward you and your families with a beautiful palace in Jannah. ❤️

This world is a place of hardships and struggles. You will be tested, but Allah will never give you a test that you can’t handle. When you feel tired, hungry, stressed or restless during this month (and even after this month has ended), think about Paradise. When your heart seeks peace, open the Qur’an and reflect on what your Creator has to say to you. Allah, the One who knows us better than we know ourselves, tells us,

Verily in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest! {Surah Ar-Rad Verse 28}

No matter what you have done in the past, if you are alive right now, you have been given another chance to polish your heart and become a better Muslim. Allah will never, ever turn away from those who sincerely turn to Him. Allah accepts the repentance of the sincere heart. So repent to Him and have hope in His forgiveness. Allah tells us in the Qur’an that He is the Most Forgiving, the Most Merciful.

Say, “O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.”{Surah Az-Zumar verse 53}

May Allah shower His blessings on us in this blessed month. May He accept our good deeds and forgive our sins. May He grant us an accepted Ramadan. May Allah have mercy on our Ummah. Ameen. ❤️
