Ramadhan Newsletter

Ramadan Mubarak

May the blessings of this Glorious Month shower each and every one of us and hope we will take full advantage of this Noble Month to come closer to Allah (swt). This is the month when the Holy Qur’an was revealed and this is also the month when our Master, Mawla Ali ibn Abi Talib (AS), was martyred. Other important and notable days of Ramadan are:

• Lailatul Qadr (The Night of Power)
• Battle of Badr
• Death of Lady Khadijah al Kubra (as)
• Birthday of our Second Imam, Hasan Ibn Ali (as)

This is the month when the believers are encouraged to keep awake and perform as many acts of worship as possible. Reading of Qur’an, making mustahab (sunnat) salaat (namaz), feeding the less fortunate people, caring for the ill, infirm, sick, and older folks, and being generous in all our actions and deeds, are some of the more commonly practiced actions. Remember, the rewards are manifold more in this month than in any other month. We do not know which actions of our actions and acts of worship will gain us the highest reward. Therefore, we should do our best each and every day. Getting up for Sahoor (night meal) is not only sunnat but will provide the believer the necessary nourishment to work through the day. Eat high protein and fresh food and of course drink plenty of fluids. Make an intention (Niyyat)

Since the days are longer and would continue to get longer until June 26th, please remember to get enough sleep to provide the energy to work through the day. Check your alarm on cell phones and clocks to make sure that you are up and ready in time to start the day. Do not let your employers find that you are not performing as you did in other months. Be more compassionate and kind to the needs of others, regardless of their beliefs.

Do dhikr (zikr) or remembrance of Allah (swt) throughout the day. One of the most commonly dhikr is to continually repeat du’as like, “Astagh firullaha rabbi wa ‘atoobu ilay”, meaning “ I seek forgiveness from my Lord”, “Allahumma Salle Ala Mohammadin wa Ale Mohammad” meaning “O’ Allah, Bless Mohammed and his blessed household”, “Alhumdu lillah”, etc. There will, insha’Allah, be great reward to those who practice this regularly. Remember, Allah (swt) is most merciful and generous and your du’as and acts of worship will cleanse your sins. You are in the driver’s seat and only you can set the objectives you want to achieve.

Please include in your du’a those who are not able to fast due to illness, old age, nursing babies, or on travel, etc. Those who are able to fast after recovering from their illness or completion of the travel days should make up the missed fast before the start of next Ramadan. The make-up fasts are called “Qadha” (Qaza) fasts.

We wish all the mu’mineen good health and a successful Ramadan. May you receive bountiful of rewards in this holy month, insha’Allah.
