It went away and it hurts knowing we might not see it again, that it might have been the last time we spent time with it.
Why does parting with a beloved always gives us sorrow?
Masjids are now again, empty.
How can we easily forgo something we did for 30 days? Just woke up one day and its all gone?
When someone dies, we remember their memories with us, it leaves traces of memories, why can’t we do it with Ramadhan?
Allah Azza Wa Jall gave us 30 days of beautiful and mazing blessings, mercy and time to rejuvenate our hearts, souls and mind, some people never get to see this but we do we were blessed, we are Muslims. Alhamdulillah.
Did we just let Ramadhan leave without a trace in our hearts?
Did we just make it pass away us like it were ordinary days when we knew it were days of abundant blessings and mercy?
Are we not people who reflect and ponder?
Are we among the people that will just let all the bags of treasures we earned this Ramadhan, be spent one by one with by earning the wrath of Allah Azza Wa Jall by continuously doing what displeases Him?
Allah Azza Wa Jall renewed you, gave you again this rare moment of renewal, do not drown yourself again, its a new beginning, a new you, a new chapter of your life, with traces of repentance, forgiveness, mercy, renewal, rejuvenation… how beautiful is the love of Allah Azza Wa Jall to His Believer, right?
Do not let Ramadhan leave without a trace in your heart, spend the next days of your life with the memories you had from Ramadhan, from the memories where you were so passionate about your salah, your dhikr, your nonstop repentance, let it shine through in the coming days, let these actions reach once again the arrival of Ramadhan.
You’ve given so much effort to it, do not just let it go like that. Do not let all of it go without a fight. The Shaitan is back and he is stronger, but Ramadhan didn’t leave without filling your heart with shields, with blankets of sabr and everything else.
You are fine, you are such a fine soldier of Allah Azza Wa Jall my brother and sister in islam.
Ramadhan taught you what is it needed and what is it that you have to do, so don’t cover your eyes again. We do all share same feelings…
How can there be such joy on your leaving? How can be there such happiness, knowing we might not see each other again…
So dear brother and sister in Islam, let its traces live by in your heart. Remember the Sahabah Radiyallahu Anhum would prepare months and months before Ramadhan would arrive, let us emanate them.
Taqabbal Allahu Minna wa Minkum!
And we pray that the lessons and reflections we learned and realized during the Ramadhan would help us become more eager to know and learn about our deen, that though it we have developed next level adoration and love for Allah Azza Wa Jall that we may spend the coming days with the intention of pleasing Him and engaged ourselves in constant remembrance of His Blessings and Mercy upon us.
