The Month Of All Months

Alhamdulillah, by the grace and mercy of Allah Taala we have been given the wonderful opportunity to witness another Ramadaan. The preparations began a good six or seven weeks before with all the ladies labouring extremely hard in the kitchen. I’m sure that all my sisters out there are more than adequately prepared with their freezers full of all sorts of exotic delicacies. Although I understand the importance of this aspect of our preparations, my concern is what have we done to spiritually prepare for this blessed month.

We busy ourselves with so many trivial things that sometimes we lose sight of our main objectives. We place so much emphasis on our frivolous customs, especially the food, that we rob ourselves of all the special blessings of this month. Most of us will rush through Asr salaah just so that we can get a head start on the grand iftaar feast, and we usually finish just a few minutes before adhaan. Yet this is one of the most important times in the day for the assured acceptance of duaas.

Ramadaan is such a blessed month, a month wherein Allah sends down his special mercies and blessings upon us. It is an opportunity for us to turn over a new leaf in our lives, to seek forgiveness for our past sins, to cleanse ourselves spiritually, to increase our good deeds & inculcate piety within ourselves, but most importantly it is an opportunity for us to draw ourselves closer to Allah Taala.

Let us all make a firm commitment to change our focus to what’s really important & take full advantage of this opportunity. May Allah Taala give us all the hidaayat to better ourselves, to continue our good deeds year-round, & may He forgive us all our shortcomings. Ameen .
