Last Minute Rush!

Last few days of Ramadhaan remaining- time to take stock

Just come back from Juma (Friday prayers) and the Imam did a hair raising Khutba (in English), really made you think.

The main point which he was trying to put across was that nearly half of Ramadhaan has gone and what have we done?

No really, what have we done??

We need to take stock of what we have done, things that we have not and the things that we can still do?

This is the month in which it is said so many people are released from the fire of Hell, how many of us have asked for this? This is the month where we can get closer to Allah, how many of us feel closer to Allah? This is the month of the Qur’an, how many of us have prayed the Qur’an?

With only the last Ash’ra remaining it is time to take a step back and take stock.

Ask yourself the question, have I done all that I can?

Have I wasted my time?

Just as the Imam said in Juma if we do not take from such a generous Giver, then who is the loser?

As we will have heard so many times “Allah does not look towards your faces, nor towards riches, but he looks towards the sincerity of your heart and nature of your deeds”

So we have to make sure that we make that firm intention only for the pleasure of Allah and pray to him that he makes it easy for us all.

I ask one and all to remember me in your prayers and the rest of the Ummah (community of mankind) too.

Also within such a great month Allah is giving us a great night – the night of Laylatul Qadr, so lets take this opportunity and make the most of what Allah has presented to us. How many have come and gone, may it not be that we don’t get to gain the benefits from such a month next year- Insha-Allah (with the Will of Allah) we all will.

Ma’as-salaam
