My reflections on this Ramadan…
We have reached the end of Ramadan!
تقبل الله منا ومنكم
May Allah accept it from you and us!
May Allah accept our fasting, our prayers, our worship and all the good deeds we did in the month of Ramadan.
May the mercy and blessings of the Almighty be upon you, your family, and friends.
May Allah grant you a blessed Eid day. Ameen.
Let us all take a moment to thank Allah for the BLESSINGS we have been given.
Let us thank Him for allowing us to witness the month of Ramadan.
Every single one of us was in need of a spiritual detox, a chance to refresh our souls and strengthen our connection with Allah. When we were fasting, it was a reminder of our true purpose in life, which is to worship Allah. We sacrificed our food, drink and desires for Him, in hope that He accepts our good deeds and forgives our sins. We stayed awake at night, praying for forgiveness, speaking to our Creator about our hopes and dreams. We cried during the hours of the night whilst making sincere dua. We became closer to the One we were once so far away from. Did you notice how light and cheerful your heart was during this blessed month? Did you feel your soul being nourished by the remembrance of Allah? Did you feel the peace in the depths of your heart when you spoke to Allah in your dua? We should all strive to maintain this beautiful connection and bond with Allah even after Ramadan departs. If we want to find contentment and peace, I’m sure we’ve all realised from this month that we will find it with Him.
I think the Muslim community really came together this Ramadan. It was amazing to see everyone supporting each other when people were facing difficult circumstances. It’s clear that we’re stronger when we are united. When we stick together and put aside our differences, we bring so much benefit to the community. I have so much hope in the future of this generation, the leaders of tomorrow and the role models of today. I can’t express the admiration I have for all those who went out to support the people who were affected by the recent tragedies. Honestly, it made me feel so proud to be a Muslim because these beautiful people truly represented the teachings of Islam. Let’s keep up the good work!
