To all my Muslim brothers and sisters, the final ten days of Ramadan has dawned. It is always an emotional time for many as we near the end of this wonderful month. The Almighty has blessed us with the chance to seek His mercy, forgiveness and now protection from the fire of hell.
It is so important to reflect on the days that have past. We need to take full advantage of the days that are left. We might not have done as much as we planned to achieved during these 30 days but reel in as much as you can now. We are not promised another chance. It is important that we continue to thrive throughout the coming year to maintain the little effort we made during this Ramadan.
I hope this Ramadan has been a game changer for you as it has for me. Remember that the last 10 days of Ramadan is even more blessed than the rest. No one knew about the importance of these days more than our Nabi (saw). Time is of the essence and every moment counts. Strive towards reading Quran abundantly, make a lot of dua, recite thikr vigorously and participate is good deeds. The messenger (saw) of Allah is reported to have said that a man is deprived of provision because of the sins that he commits. So, let us seek the night of power on the odd nights because it is also reported that the prophet (saw) said whoever spends the night of Laylat Al Qadr in prayer out of faith and in hope of reward, will be forgiven his previous sins.
Our creator is so merciful towards us, if this isn’t enough reason to go forth and observe prayer, then what is? From my knowledge and what has been taught to me, the best dua to read is “Oh Allah, You are All-Forgiving and You love forgiveness so forgive me”.
If you haven’t before this is the time to connect with your Maker, the Lord of the worlds, ask Allah for all that you need and want. Making that connection now will make you want to do it again and again even after this Holy month has passed.
This serves as a reminder to myself first and then to my readers. Please remember me, my family and the Ummah at large in your devoted prayers. Our Prophet (saw) has said “The supplication that gets the quickest answer is the one made by one Muslim for another in his absence”.
Without any further ramble I would like to wish you all well and may we make the most of the last ten days and nights of Ramadan.
All my love, Fazeelah
