Ramadan; a divine opportunity for our reformation 'Allamah Muhammad Yusuf Al Binnory (rahimahullah) writes: 'From the beginning of time, Allah Ta’ala selected the month of Ramadan as the season for abundant blessings and divine light (tajalliyat). Whenever Allah Ta’ala sent any gift from the sky for the reformation of humanity, Allah selected the month of Ramadan. The famous books and scriptures of the previous Ambiya were also revealed in this month culminating with the revelation of the Quran. Ramadan is near. During this month divine light (Nur and Tajalli) of Allah will cover everyone, provisions for forgiveness of man will be made. Allah Ta’ala, the most Generous, will increase His generosity. The doors of Jannah will be opened, the gates of Jahannam will be locked. O one who seeks good, go ahead! O one who intends evil, stop! Every night countless sinful people are saved from the blaze of Jahannam. For the reformation and cleansing of the evil soul (nafs), Allah Ta’ala has ordained fasting during the day, so that a believer can acquire the highest stages of taqwa and become close to Allah Ta’ala. During the nights we are encouraged to listen and recite the Quran. By means of the fast, the inner self (nafs) is cleansed and for the enhancement of the soul (ruh), Allah Ta'ala has arranged the recital of the Quran. It is as though in this blessed month, the [inhabitants of] earth are given a chance to link up with the higher ranked Angels in the skies [Al-Malaul A'la].' (Adapted from Basair wa ‘ibar, vol.2 pg.407) al-Miftah
Personalized Gifts Imagine awakening one morning and opening the front door, only to be greeted by the sight of a beribboned basket packed with steaming croissants, a flask of hot coffee, a jug of freshly squeezed orange juice and other fresh breakfast delights! You wonder who your generous benefactor could possibly be as the accompanying note merely says, “Hope you enjoy”. To your absolute delight, this early morning treat continues. Every morning without fail, the basket arrives on your doorstep, containing a different selection of tasty treats. By the time the third or fourth morning dawns, you are extremely eager to identify your well wisher so that you can, at the very least, say “Thank You”. If the idea of a breakfast basket delivered to our door every morning, free of charge, sounds fantastic, have we ever pondered over the fact that every morning, we all wake up to enjoy another fresh basket of life filled with precious gifts, designed exclusively for us? We have all been blessed with unique features that make us different from other people. The curve in our ears, the shade of our eyes, the slope of our nose, the tone of our voice, the shape and length of our fingers; every fine detail designed especially for you. Best of all is the fact that we all know the identity of the One who has blessed us with these bounties – Allah Ta‘ala. Appreciation demands that we express gratitude to our generous Creator, Allah Ta‘ala, by utilizing these favours solely in His obedience. Let us strive to personally thank Allah Ta‘ala every day by pleasing Him. Source: Uswatulmuslimah
