Ramadan 2017 is coming!

by - May 24, 2017


By the grace of Allah, another month of Ramadan is around the corner. It starts on Saturday, 27th May in all countries of the world, inshaAllah. Are you ready? I love Ramadan - the lights, the quiet nights, the long days without food and water. It is a time of peace.

It's such a beautiful month where we try to get as close to our Creator as we can and we want to take as much advantage as possible. Seeking repentance asking for forgiveness from others for any wrongdoings you may have done, checking your ego, cut out the bad habits and improve or establish the good ones. Give to a charity with a cause that is close to your heart, but make it so that your left is not even aware of your right hands deeds. The lectures, tranquility, getting back to the Qur'an and understanding it with reinforced vigor. Refraining from food and drink from dawn to dusk teaches us self-discipline and sets an example for just how much self-discipline humans possess. The community around you, all doing it for the sake of finding peace amidst the chaos.

Every year, people resolve to make Ramadan meaningful, to dedicate a major portion of their time to ibadah, to stand the nights in prayer, to come out kinder and purer Muslims. And every year, without fail, they witness the days of this blessed month slip by with little to no progress. Until the month ends and they wonder: What went wrong? This is exactly what happens when people enter Ramadan with little preparation. They start with a bang but within a few days, they run of fuel and are forced to fall back into their normal routine with feelings of guilt and grief. So, do not waste it as a another month. Welcome it like an old friend and ready yourself, try and make it your goal to keep the good habits you have picked to stay with you after Ramadan.

If you don't have a goal for Ramadan, you're wasting your potential. Make a goal to strive for, even if you don't reach it before the end. InshaAllah, we will meet our goals.

Oh, I wanted to remind you guys that there will be people that fast because of social pressure, people that fast, pray and read Qur'an although they aren't very religious for the rest of the year, and people that have trouble fasting because of mental or physical complications - be a bit more tolerant and mindful. I just want to let all my non-Muslim followers to be aware and respectful of your Muslim friends and their practising of their faith. Please do not judge them. To my Muslim followers, it will be a trying and testing month but Allah rewards those who have patience. Remember to use those precious few hours we have after iftar to hydrate and eat energy fueled food as much as you can. And have faith in your Creator for hardship is followed by ease.

Last but not least, may your Ramadan filled with peace, harmony and joy. May the divine blessings of Allah protect and guide you.

"Oh Allah, grant us Ramadan. For we are in desperate need of your mercy."
RAMADAN MUBARAK!
