I'm updating this post from my home in Melaka. Got back from IIU for the weekend to spend the first few days in this Holy Month with my family. My mid-semester break will not be until the 12th september but I'm not really looking forward to it because there's a lot to do before the break, examinations, reports and stuffs. It's been a while. I am writing this post now just to wish you guys, "Marhaban Ya Ramadhan, the holy month, the month of Ibadah, the month of Forgiveness, and the month of Rahmah."
"The month of Ramadhan has been designed to maintain a balance between material and spiritual aspects of the human life. This month is meant to maximize the direct acts of ibadah and to maximize the pure mundane activities, so that one may accelerate his spiritual progress to make up the distance and to repair the spiritual loss one may have suffered through his deep involvement in the mundane activities during the year.
The days of Ramadhan are designed to keep fast which is an act of ibadah for the whole day, and depriving oneself from any material food for many hours, it lessens the bad spiritual effects, if any, of the material pleasures. The nights of Ramadhan, on the other hand, are spent in offering Tarawih and waking up for tahajjud and suhoor, reducing the time of one's sleep much less than in the normal days.
The rewards of the virtuous acts in this month has been multiplied, to encourage the Muslims to the maximum possible acts of ibaadah."
A blissful Ramadhan to all Muslimin & Muslimah around the globe. May Allah bless us and accept our good deeds during this month and throughout our life. Let us take this opportunity to get close to Allah and continue the momentum until the next Ramadhan, and the next Ramadhan Insya Allah.
Du'a when break the fast: Iftar
Lastly, I would like to share few articles about this holy month of Ramadhan. Let search for Mardhotillah and His forgiveness in this blessed month.Ameen~
