Day 22: We are at the end of Ramadhan. We lost a few individuals on the way; people of our age and probably people who yearned for a brighter future. It’s a blessing to have lived to this day. Alhamdulilah. May we live to eid, to fast the six days of Shawwal and to the next Ramadhan as well biidhniLlah. May Allah shower His mercy upon all those who have died and grant them His jannah. Ameen.
Day 23: Alhamdulilah for the tests that Allah has put us through. For all the hardships and struggles because all these are His Mercy in disguise. Alhamdulilah that He gives us hard tests so that He can erase our mountains of sins. So that when we die, we can enter jannah like new born babies with no sin. Alhamdulilah.
Day 24: Sometimes we cry and whine about our unanswered prayers. We ask why the duas we made in tahajjud and taraweh and itikaf haven’t been answered for years. But wallahy some day you are going to thank Allah for these unanswered duas. Just this month of Ramadhan, I came to realize the harm that Allah was preventing me from by not answering two of my duas. You can’t jut imagine my joy on realizing that Allah has saved me from great trial. Alhamdulilah. Perhaps this is why we should always have faith; deep faith in all that He has planned for us. We should always pray that He grants us only that is best for us. Ameen to that.
Day 25: Alhamdulilah for every relief that Allah grants us after hardship. For every happiness after sadness. For every peace after storms of the soul. For every great decisions made after confusion. Alhamdulilah for everything that He made easy for us even when we are undeserving.
Day 26: My family, they are my world. I can never thank Allah enough for them. May Allah grant my parents and my family long lives full of joy, sacrifice, patience, joining hands and love for the sake of Allah. Ameen.
Day 27: My pen has been my ‘realest’ friend. I don’t know how I would survive any of my grief or even my happy moments without writing. I am really grateful for the talent of the pen. I am thankful that I got a gift from Allah that can be very useful not just to me but to many other people. Alhamdulilah for this ne3ma.
Day 28: I am indeed happy that I was able to fulfill my promise of taking part in this challenge and to the very end of it. Alhamdulilah for not forgetting my commitment and for completing this Ramadhan series. May Allah accept it from me. Ameen.
As we go into eid season I pray that Allah accepts all your good deeds that you worked on in Ramadhan. May He accept your repentance and make you amongst His beloved servants. Same goes to me in shaa Allah.
Please let us not rush into eid and forget what we are just from. Ramadhan. All that you worked for, don’t let it go to waste by breaking all rules in eid. Please check my article ‘etiquette of eid’: http://lubnah.me.ke/etiquette-of-celebrating-eid/
And finally: eid mubarak. Taqaballa Llahu Minna wa minkum a3mal aswaliha. Ameen. Happy eid season 😊
