Reflections on Ramadan.

Hi and once again, Assalumu Alaikum Wah Rahmatullahi Wa Baraktah!

InshaAllah, I hope that you all had a good and productive Eid-ul-Fitr!
Having been through the blessed month of Ramadan 2012, I think it's time I changed my bad habits and hopefully you will too! I think Ramadan gives us all much to think about and gives us time to assess ourselves and our actions.

Are we really being 'good' Muslims?
Are we being good people?
But most of all are we being truthful to ourselves?

I know it's a question I often find asking my self. But I think most of try to become 'good' Muslims, but somewhere along the line, Shayateen tries to tempt us into bad deeds (such as getting into debt, smoking, drinking alcohol, rising to our temper etc.) and after a month of reading on time and fasting and doing Dhikr, we stray from the Right Path. But we are human. We can try to repent for our sins, ask for forgiveness from Allah and try to stay on the Right Path. 

Hopefully we will all InshaAllah, be good people and most importantly good Muslims.
I hope this post motivates you to becoming a good person!

Assalumu Alaikum Wah Rahmatullahi Wa Baraktah, Jazak Allah Khair and Jummah Mubarak!


Assalumu Alaikum Wah Rahmatullahi Wa Baraktah  = May the peace, mercy, and blessings of Allah be with you.
InshaAllah = God Willing.
Dhikr = a devotional act/remembrance of God.
 Jazak Allah Khair = May Allah reward you with goodness. 
Jummah Mubarak = Friday Congratulations.

Hi and Ramadan Kareem!

Hi and Assalamu Alaikum Wah Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh* (to all of my Muslim readers),

As you may have noticed (read: sarcasm), that it's nearing the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan (in which Muslims, pray, fast and generally try to better themselves - it is also the most holiest month of the Muslim calendar as it was the month in which the Qur'an was revealed to Prophet Muhammad SAW~), and it is also the start of Laylat-ul-Qadr+.
I hope that you all Insha-Allah# will have a prosperous Laylat-ul-Qadr and that you may all reap the rewards of this blessed night! Please remember that;
 "The Night of Power is better than a thousand months." 97:3 The Holy Qur'an
 and also:

"Seek it (Laylat-ul-Qadr) in Ramadan in the last ten nights. For verily, it is during the odd nights, 
the twenty-first, or the twenty-third, or the twenty-fifth, or the twenty-seventh, 
or the twenty-ninth, or during the last night." 
-Sahih Hadith Ahmad 5:318
and hopefully all of your worship will have been worth it and you will Insha-Allah receive a place in the highest of level of Jannah.

I hope that you all have a blessed Ramadan and may your character and habits change for the better.
