TweetRamadhaan is the perfect time for the healing of the heart and spirit through the Qurâan, Duâa and âIbaadaat to which all Muslims are connected to some extent in the month of Ramadhaan.
Qurâan It is not a Book of just Doâs and Donâts. It is a mercy and a healing of the physical and spiritual self. It is living and feeling it. Feel the emotions of the people mentioned in the stories of the Qurâan and know that they are mentioned for a reason.
How did Yusuf AS feel when he was thrown in the well by his own; how did Maryam AS cope when alone in the wilderness giving birth to her child; what was the fear felt by Abu Bakr RA when he thought he and the beloved sallallaahu âalayhi wasallam would be found hiding in the cave of Thawr during the Hijrah.
Allah taâala acknowledged them and helped them and comforted them. He sent down tranquility upon them, strengthening their hearts.
The Qurâan is till the end of time. The lessons within are for all of us at all times and in all places. It is the rope which we can hold to when we fall (in sin and in grief and anxiety) which will bring us back up on our feet with hope and happiness.
Duâa Duâa are not just words from the tongue. They are intense feelings when connected to the heart. Duâa is the essence of âIbaadah and an acknowledgment of our utter humility and dependency on our Lord. It strengthens our connection with Him.
The Duâa of our Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu âalayhi wasallam made at Taâif after being driven out of town shows intense grief but also hope in Allah taâala. He complains to Allah taâala and then with hope and humility asks for mercy and seeks refuge in Him.
Know that Allah taâala hears and acknowledges. When Maryam AS was alone giving birth to her child she wished she never existed. Allah taâala did not tell to make Sabr. He provided for her water from a spring and dates and told her to enjoy the blessings.
âIbaadaat All types of worship are included in âIbaadah and generally it is increased in the month of Ramadhhan however for it to become a healing, the ingredient of Khushooâ is necessary. The Prophet sallallaahu âalayhi wasallam used to turn to Salaah in times of anxiety.
Though these three things are generally increased in Ramdhaan we underestimate and underutilize their potential of removing fear, anxiety, grief etc., bringing hope and becoming a healing of the heart and soul.
