- To every muslim out there living under oppression, I am sorry.
- May Allah forgive me for being of no help to you.
- May Allah forgive me for turning a deaf ear to your cries.
- May Allah forgive me for being stingy in helping you.
- May Allah forgive me for my selfish duas and not praying for you.
- May Allah forgive me for the peaceful sleep whilst you are living a nightmare.
- May Allah forgive me for the food I eat whilst you go hungry.
- May Allah forgive me for my laughter whilst you cry tears of blood.
- May Allah forgive me for taking what I have for granted whilst you have nothing.
- May Allah forgive me for loving my life whilst death stares you in the eye.
- I am sorry.
Dua for Twenty-Ninth Day of Ramadhan
اَللّـهُمَّ غَشِّني فيهِ بِالرَّحْمَةِ
وَارْزُقْني فيهِ التَّوْفيقَ وَالْعِصْمَةَ
وَطَهِّرْ قَلْبي مِنْ غَياهِبِ التُّهْمَةِ
يا رَحيماً بِعِبادِهِ الْمُؤْمِنينَ
O Allah, on this day, cover me with Your mercy, grant me in it success and protection, purify my heart from the darkness of false accusations, O the Merciful to His believing servants.
An analogy between the days of Ramadan and our life:
We start the fast in the morning strong. By noon we start to get weaker. By the afternoon, we really begin to feel the fast. By sunset, right before we break it, things get difficult. Our lives mirror this. We start our lives strong as youth until we reach noon time, our 30’s and 40’s, we start to get weak. Once we reach old age (‘Asr and Maghrib) our physical abilities are greatly reduced until we leave this life. Fasting shouts to us our own mortality. Or own truth, “You are heading back to Allah.” It is a reminder of our life, our responsibilities and the value of being young and physically capable. And just as we avoid some delicacies in the day, only to enjoy them later, if we spend our lives fasting from things that God has prohibited we will break our fast with Paradise!
Righteous people used to say, “I fasted from what God commanded and I hope to break my fast on Paradise.”
A simple, but powerful, lesson for us all, as we toil through the day. May Allah make this fast a means of spiritual and social awakening.
Imam Suhaib Webb (via beautifulpatienceforever)
solat tapi masih bermaksiat
solat tapi masih sombong dengan Allah
solat tapi masih tak belajar erti sabar
solat tapi hati tetap tak tenang
solat tapi perangai masih tak berubah
solat tapi masih ikut syaitan.
check balik solat kita.
mungkin kita solat tapi tak bawa hati bersama.
mungkin zahirnya solat tapi batinnya tidak tunduk sama pada Pencipta.
