The Prophet (peace & blessings be upon him) said: “Whoever builds a mosque for Allah, Allah will build for him likewise in Paradise.” [Sahîh al-Bukhârî and Sahîh Muslim]

This Ramadhan

The believer awaits Ramaḍān just like he awaits someone dear who has gone missing; he becomes concerned with its absence, in case he doesn’t see it again, and he becomes concerned with his deeds once he does see it.

By now, its certain that most of us will still be in lockdown throughout the month of Ramadan which in shaa Allah begins next friday. That means no tarawīḥ prayers, and no masjid iftārs, and no Jum’ah, and no Eid prayers.

For one segment, this will prove to be the worse Ramaḍān of their lives. They won’t be able to feel the spirit of the month, and they will drag through the days waiting for the month to end.

For another segment, this will be the absolutely all-time best Ramaḍān of their lives. That is because they will discover the pleasure of worshipping Allah in private, and the joys of reciting the Quran, and the serenity that long, quiet prostrations bring in the darkest hours of the night. They will realize that while societal events in previous Ramaḍāns helped them to feel a communal spirit, they came at the cost of personal development.

And hence, now, in this time frame, forced by circumstances, and appreciating all those blessings that they took for granted in previous years, they shall discover the real meaning of worship – a mean that transcends society and is independent of crowds and congregations, because all that is needed is the presence of an attentive heart humbling itself in front of its Creator.

Yes, I’m sad I won’t witness a communal Ramaḍān. But that won’t prevent me from trying to make this upcoming Ramaḍān the best one of my life, in sha Allah! Plus remember our brothers and sisters in China, Kashmir, Palestine, Afghanistan and many other countries, at least we share the same circumstances with the additional of danger of bullets, bombs, hunger and curfews

Nothing can take Ramadaan spirit away from us. We will be grateful for the condition Allah has given us and make the best out of the situation 30 days of iktikaaf.

And I say Alhamdulillah for everything . Maybe Allah swt wants to hear us in seclusion.

Some of us may not reach this Ramadan and some have already had their last one. May Allah grant us the opportunity to have another Ramadan. Ameen.

DEC Management.
