Ready Steady Go...for Ramadhaan!

9th June 2011
Just ponder over the state of love our beloved Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam had for his Lord. Ponder over his meeting with his beloved Lord during ascension and thereafter having to return to earth and the dunya towards which he had no inclination. He had witnessed Paradise itself yet at the approach of the month of Ramadhaan, at the commencement of the month Rajab, he would supplicate thus:

اللّهُمّ بارِكْ لَنا في رَجَبَ وَ شَعْبانَ وَ بَلِّغْنا شَهْرَ رَمَضان
Allaahumma baarik lanaa fee rajaba wa sha’baana wa ballighnaa shahra ramadhaan
“O Allah, bless us in Rajab and Sha’baan and make us reach Ramaadhaan”

He is asking for a longer life in this instance indicating his shouq (yearning) for the blessed month of Ramadhaan.

How many of us have this yearning today? How many of us look forward to this blessed month, the fasting, the Taraaweeh Salaat, the suhoor and the iftaar with deep yearning and how many of us shed tears at its end? Many (Alhamdulillah) give up sins in this month however is it regarded as burdensome and is the day of ‘Eid anticipated with longing so that life can continue as before?

From an inspiring talk by Shaykh Muhammad Saleem Dhorat (hafizahullah) in the monthly Tazkiyah Gathering for Sisters on 5th June.

More to come with how to attain this state insha Allah!
