You know what’s one of the best realizations I’ve ever had?
You know Narnia, Hogwarts, Neverland, Mordor, the Shire, Gallifrey, Westeros, etc? Those are all places conjured by the human mind. People who are fans of the stories these places come from yearn to experience them. Allah has created Jannah, a place that is literally SO AMAZING it cannot be grasped by our minds. So basically it’s literally trillions of times better than these fantasy locations.
The blessed month of Ramadhan is getting closer and closer as each day passes. Yet, how many of us have actually prepared for this great event?
If you haven’t begun your Ramadhan preparations, it is not too late! Over the next few days, we’ll be posting activities that we can do to both physically and mentally prepare ourselves for this month. The Sahabah (RadiaAllahu anhum ajma’een) used to prepare for Ramadhān six months in advance!
Allah Azza wa Jall in His infinite mercy has made it so easy for us to earn rewards in this month, because it is during this month that the doors to Jannah (Paradise) are opened, the doors to Jahannum (Hellfire) are closed and the Shayaateen are chained. SubhaanAllah! Look at how easy and smoothly Allah Azza wa Jall has paved the way for us! Yet we realize that during the month of Ramadhan people still commit sin. Why is that?
Well for starters, think about the fact that for the last 11 months, the Shaytaan had a major impact on how we conduct ourselves. The Shaytaan is such that at that moment when you become neglectful or negligent of Allah Azza wa Jall, he sets in and push us further into ghaflah (neglect). So in this condition it becomes easier and easier to commit sins - even on our own!
Another reason is that, doing things that remind us of Allah Azza wa Jall in the form of extra ibaadah is not our habit outside of Ramadhan. Many people think that as soon as the month enters that they will read more Quran, and sit longer engaged in dhikr and so on - but this is never the case! For the first few days, yes, because it is something new, fresh and one may feel motivated. But a few days after that their ibaadah dwindles and they return to the states they were in outside of Ramadhan, leaving out nafl salaah and recitation of Qur'an.
This is why we have to prepare from NOW. No! Don’t make any plans for the future. Make intention to implement some of these changes from this moment, so that by the time Ramadhan arrives we would have already gained momentum for carrying out these necessary changes to get closer to Allah Azza wa Jall.
Time is precious. Time is limited. Time is precious because it is so limited, uncertain, and also because every moment that passes is a moment lost, with no way of returning. We have no idea how much time remains for each of us, and likewise, we don’t know if we will live to see another Ramadhan. So let us treat this Ramadhan like it is our last. Let us make the most out of whatever time we have left, and let’s strive to gain the maximum rewards available for us during this month.
If you benefit from these Ramadhān Preparation tips, please share it with others so that they too may benefit and you will also earn the rewards for doing so, in sha Allāh.
Oh Allah, let us reach Ramadan!
We also ask that He includes us under His shades of mercy and forgiveness and grants us the tawfeeq to earn great rewards. Amin!
All of the donations will go towards helping to build Women’s Shelters for those mothers, daughters and sisters who are not as blessed as we are. Please donate to this important cause (the minimum is $10). Everything helps towards our goal. I thank you dearly. And pray that Allah swt bless your health, wealth and saves you from the fires of Jahannum inshAllah, Ameen ya rabbil alameen.
I can guarantee you that you won’t be able to go sleep properly if you watch this reminder about Jahannum by Sheikh Omar El Banna. If you watch it with a open heart and if you are sincere then you will think twice before disobeying Allah. The Non-Muslims who watch this, no doubt fear will strike into their hearts so those with a brain please use common sense and accept the truth before your time is up. May Allah save us all from Jahannum, ameen.
O Ummah of Muhammad ﷺ you need to wake up to yourself, stop chasing this Dunya, our home is Jannah, this dunya is the Jannah of the Kuffar.. You and me know our purpose, this dunya is nothing.. The kuffar have blind hearts, they wake up everyday without praying, they eat whatever they like and when they like… they eat food without giving thanks to their Creator, they walk on Earth proudly without giving thanks and praying to the One who gave them legs, they drink alcohol, they commit zina, they commit sin after sin, they don’t repent..
O Ummah of Muhammad ﷺ stop following these people, they are the losers, they are running after money.. look where they end up, 6 feet under…We should be out there saving these people from ever lasting torture but we have Muslims looking up to these people, some so called Muslims don’t even pray… How can we save the Kuffar when our own loved ones claim they love Allah but don’t pray?
Allah has promised the kuffar Jahannum, Allah promises the fire of Jahannum that you will be full!! Allah says: I will fill you up!!! Are you full, is there anymore room? And the fire of Jahannum will say BRING IT ON, IS THERE ANYMORE??? This is what i designed for, this is what I was created for, BRING THEM ON!! Is there any more???
O Muslims, wake up to reality.. watch this video and I pray to Allah he guides you to the straight path.. You don’t know what you have been blessed with.. May Allah have mercy upon us all, ameen.
