Ramadhan: final lapse

In the name of Allah, the most merciful.

Believe it or not, it’s already September. Somehow, it feels like yesterday have I only arrived to the city. Rainy day, soaked when I first stepped Leith Street. Who would have thought we could survive 7 months here, Alhamdulillah. 🙂

It’s still Ramadhan, but as any other thing that exist, it must come to an end. Ramadhan too is in its last phase as we speak. And this brings us back to the most important time of the month where we seek of Lailatul Qadr, malam seribu malam. Fastabikul khayrat, insyAllah.

While there’s still time, while Ramadhan is still around let us all race towards getting to the highest rank for in the month of Ramadhan that all good deeds are worth more.

Every action of the son of Adam is given manifold reward, each good deed receiving then times its like, up to seven hundred times. Allah the Most High said, ‘Except for fasting, for it is for Me and I will give recompense for it, he leaves off his desires and his food for Me.’ for the fasting person there are two times of joy; a time when he breaks his fast and a time of joy when he meets his Lord, and the smell coming from the mouth of the fasting person is better with Allah than the smell of musk.”[al-Bukhaaree]

Before ending this post, let us all sit back and reflect our Ramadhan. Because Ramadhan is still in the air, there is still time for us to make a change, to cleanse ourselves from the worldly filth.

What have I achieved this Ramadhan?
Have I wasted it with my worldly matters?
How am I a better person than I was before Ramadhan came?

Finally, always remember the hadeeth of our Prophet (sallaAllahu alayhe wasallam):

May his nose be rubbed in the dust, a man for whom Ramadan comes and then goes before he is forgiven. [Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 3545; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi]
