Dear Ramadan

Dear Ramadan you are  the best month of the year as Friday is always  the best day of the week. We welcome you with open hearts and hands.

Dear Ramadan you bring joy, tranquility, and happiness to our lives. You make us reflect our blessings, and we give more as we understand the state of the hungry.

Dear Ramadan you are the mercy of Allah that heals our broken spiritual souls and body; you draw us closer to our Creator, and restore our healthy.

Dear Ramadan many will ask themselves why one needs to stay hungry to get closer to Allah, because they don’t understand that you (Ramadan) are an act of worship and Allah knows the reward for us detaching from the worldly pleasure for His sake. And for your Information, restraining ourselves from the enjoyment of worldly pleasure is for my own good not that it will add anything to His sovereignty.

Dear Ramadan, many who hoped to stay and better themselves for may be one last time didn’t make  to the race. We are grateful slaves for this chance and hope and pray we make better use of our time and worship.

Dear Ramadan of all the merits you offer to us, how one can forget the one night in you that is better than 83 years of our lives. Quran 97:3: “The night of al-Qadr is better than a thousand months.”                        اللْهُمَّ إِنَّكَ عَفُوٌّ تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي

Dear Ramadan, despite the questions ( not even a water? how dry!) the mocks ( what kind of punishment is this?) and the tensions of this ignorant world, we always miss you very much.  We miss the calmness, repose and bliss you brought into our lives. We are grateful for the chance you offer us to purify and better our souls and hold tight to the rope of Allah.

Dear Ramadan, we miss the closeness we get to our ever hungry brothers and sisters. We do miss the selfless crying-prayers we make for ourselves and for our beloved Ummah. We miss our unity and the help we offer to each other.

Dear Ramadan, no word can describe the LOVE we have for you, please Lord forgive our past sins and don’t entrust us to ourselves even for a blink.

Dear Ramadan we celebrate your arrival and departure, please come back to us and find us  in better state of piety, and healthy than you found us this year. Ameen.
