“O Servants of Allah! Ramadan is set to move on, and only a little of it remains. If anyone has done well during the month thus far, it is incumbent on him to complete the month in a good fashion. While anyone who has fallen short let him finish in good shape. Only a few days and nights remain, so bid it farewell with righteous actions that will testify for you before the All-Knowing King.

The hearts of the righteous people are filled with longing, lamenting from the pain of departure. How can a believer not shed tears upon its departure when he does not know if he will live to see it again?
O Ramadan! Be gentle, the tears of your lovers are pouring out. Their hearts are torn from the pain of your departure. Perhaps standing to bid you farewell will extinguish the burning fire of longing. Perhaps taking a moment to repent will mend everything that has been torn in fast. Perhaps one cut off from the procession of those whose fast has been accepted will be joined with them. Perhaps the one imprisoned by his sins will be freed. Perhaps one deserving to be punished in Hell will be liberated. Perhaps the mercy of the Lord will be granted to the sinner.”


Lataif Al Ma’arif of Ibn Rajab Al-Hanbali, Pg 216

Concluding Ramadan with Istighfar (Seeking Forgiveness)

Hafiz Ibn Rajab (rahimahullah) said:

Istighfar (seeking forgiveness) is the conclusion of all good actions, thus salah, hajj, standing in salah at night (qiyam al-layl) are all concluded with it.

Gatherings are also concluded with it. If they are gatherings of knowledge, it serves as a seal for them, and if they are futile gatherings, it serves as a compensation.

Likewise, the fasts of Ramadan should be concluded with Istighfar.

Umar Ibn Abd al-Azeez (rahimahullah) sent a message to different cities, ordering the people to end Ramadan with Istighfar and charity, i.e., sadaqat al-fitr, because sadaqat al-fitr is a purification for the fasting person from vain and obscene talk.

Furthermore, Istighfar repairs the damage caused to the fast through vain and obscene talk.

This is why some of the previous scholars said sadaqat al-fitr for the one fasting is like sajdat al-sahw for salah."

Lataa'if al-Ma'arif (pg. 383)

May Allah Ta'ala forgive all our shortcomings during the month of Ramadan and accept all our good actions, through His grace and mercy. Aameen.
