Reflect on The Success of Your Ramadaan!!

The words of RasulAllah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) serves as a grim reminder to us "Jibraeel (alayhis salaam) appeared before me and said: 'Woe to him who found the blessed month of Ramadaan and let it pass by without gaining forgiveness.' Upon that I said: Aameen. Everyday Allah decorates Jannah for them and says to it: 'The time is near when my faithful servants shall cast the great trials (of the world) and come to you'".

Let us look at our present condition in light of the effects Ramadaan had on us. Let us compare our condition at the start of Ramadaan to our condition now:

Was the advent of Ramadaan something that made us become obedient?

Do we have the will to change our lives or was this just another Ramadaan?

Whose loss is greater than he who missed the blessings of Ramadaan?

When will the one who did not reform himself during the month of Ramadaan ever do so?

When will the one who was not cured from the sickness of ignorance, sin and heedlessness in this month ever get cured?

Did it reform our actions and conduct?

Did it unify our community?

Did it remove the hatred and rancour between us?

You have responded to the call of your Allah by salaat, fasting, charity and many other good deeds, so respond to His command in all other matters and at all times. Humble your hearts for the remembrance of Allaah and be united in adherence to the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam so that the Ummah may be saved from calamities.

May Allah grant us understanding and may He bless and be pleased with us.


Eid Mubarak
