Assalamualaikum & hye peeps.
AHLAN WA SAHLAN YA RAMADHAN!
VVVVVVVVVVVIP GUEST IS COMING..!
aha.! Somebody is leaving. Yes, syaithan laknatullah is leaving.
"When the month of Ramadan starts, the gates of the heaven are opened and the gates of Hell are closed and the devils are chained." (Bukhari)
But but, why do we still doing sin when the devils is chained?
Answer is your nafs. Our nafs. Our nafs is controlling us or in simpler words, we are the slave of the nafs.
So ikhwah wa akhowat fillah. Wake Up.
now is the best time to detox, flushing bad habits and forming good ones.
Yes from the beginning.
Remember the purposes of life.
“And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me.” [Qur’an 51:56]
live our life in such a way that our intent is in accordance with the intent of our Creator.
So, there are few missions to be accomplished for this Ramadhan.
1. Khatam Al-quran (1 day 1 juzuk)
Give a try. It's simple. Follow this rule.
You can read 4 pages after prayer.
4 pages X 5 times daily prayers = 20 pages = 1 juzuk
stay connected with Allah through His revelation in the month of the Quran.
2. Attend terawih prayer everyday.
After isya', we urge to go to sleep after one whole day exhausting day.
Try,try our best to head to mosque.
Praying alone is wonderful but in jamaah must be more FANTASTIC.
3. Iftar in moderate.
We tend to buy lots of food for iftar. But then, we're wasting it. Just eat in moderate amount, the amount that we only need. Learn self-control not self-indulgence. Follow Prophetic rule on eating: fill our stomachs with one-third food, one-third water and one-third breathing space
4. Forgive everyone who has hurt you
Still got a festering wound from the fight with your friend last year? Still upset about something your spouse said during a heated argument? Or are you still bitter about the way your parents sometimes treated you as a kid? Let go of the anger and pain this Ramadan and forgive those who have hurt you. Forgiving someone is not only good for the body, but it's also great for the soul. And in Ramadan, ten days of which are devoted to Allah's forgiveness, shouldn't we lesser beings forgive too? If you find it very difficult to forgive everyone, forgive at least three people.
"Our life is too short to fill in with hatred"
The more we give sadaqah the more we increase our iman and thus, expect Allah’s rewards both in this world and in the life hereafter. Giving charity out of our wealth does not decrease our wealth but instead Allah (s.w.t.) increases it:
Abu Hurairah (r.a.) reported Allah’s Messenger (s.a.w.s.) as saying: “Charity does not in any way decrease the wealth and the servant who forgives, Allah adds to his respect; and the one who shows humility, Allah elevates him in the estimation (of the people).” (Muslim Vol. 4, Hadith 6264)
SO, let us start now.
The prophet (PBUH) said:
“Every deed of man will receive ten to 700 times reward, except Siyam (fasting), for it is for Me and I shall reward it (as I like). There are two occasions of joy for one who fasts: one when he breaks the fast and the other when he will meet his Lord.” (Muslim).
He also (PBUH) said in another hadith:
“Whoever fasts during Ramadan with faith and seeking his reward from Allah will have his past sins forgiven. Whoever prays during the nights in Ramadan with faith and seeking his reward from Allah will have his past sins forgiven. And he who passes Lailat al-Qadr in prayer with faith and seeking his reward from Allah will have his past sins forgiven.” (Bukhari, Muslim).
May this Ramadhan is better than the previous year.
