Allaahumma baarik lanaa fee rajaba wa shabaana wa ballighnaa shahra ramadhaan
O Allah, bless us in Rajab and Shabaan 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!
