The most beautiful month of love and mercy has once again dawned upon our lives. Ramadaan is the same month which shadowed the lives of the Sahaba (RA) with all its might, power, blessings, mercy, forgiveness, etc.
The benefits and blessings of this month are infinite. Hence, we must seize every opportunity we have to maximise and exploit the bounties that Allah Ta’ala bestows upon us in this Mubarak month.
The gift of Ramadaan comes only once a year. If we miss taking advantage of or fail to invest in this month we will, alas, lose the returns and reward of this month – never to be repeated!
If one misses out on the opportunities afforded to him or her in the current month of Ramadaan, there is no Qadha or replacement chance! There is no guarantee of life, hence, we cannot procrastinate or think that we will be able to take better advantage of the next Ramadaan!
The true spirit of this month is surrounding oneself with love, compassion and togetherness in serving and sharing with humanity – all in the name of honouring the Ummah.
