RAMADAN 2019 / 1440 AH
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuh.
With the permission of Allah, we are blessed with another year of Ramadan. I would like to take this opportunity to remind myself and everyone else that our efforts should be aimed at taking full advantage of this blessed month.
We should be particularly mindful of and attentive to strengthening our personal relationship with Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala. Allah has blessed us by giving us numerous outlets by which to garner his reward during this blessed month – fasting, taraweeh, charity, Qur’an recitation, dua etc.
Let us all strive to make improvements in our daily lives during this blessed month. Let us identify at least one positive habit or good deed that has become part of our routine this Ramadan and make a pledge to continue performing it – even after Ramadan. When our beloved Prophet (peace be up on him) was asked, “What deeds are most pleasing to Allah?” he replied, “The most regular constant deeds – even though they may be few.” (Bukhari)
On behalf of the Islamic Da’wah Movement, I would like to wish you all a blessed and fruitful Ramadan. May Allah (SWT) bless us all with peace, tranquility, strong Imaan, and healthy and active life, and also give us the best of this world and the Hereafter. Ameen.
Your brother in Islam,
