Rejab is the month of Allah, Sha’ban the month of Rasul (saw) and Ramadhan the month of the Ummah
Allahumma baarik lana fee rajaba wa sha’bana wa ballighna ramadaan. “O Allah! Bless us in the month of Rajab and Shabaan, and make us reach Ramadhan (by granting us life until then)”
Doing good deeds is not supposed to make you more arrogant. It’s not supposed to make you sanctimonious; it’s not supposed to make you self-righteous. It’s not supposed to make you a judge of everyone else around you. And this happens a lot, especially with people who start practicing, recently…
In all that is bad, by means of which you feel that calamity has fallen upon your being or your nafs, be aware that all is by Allah. And by Allah, with Allah, through Allah, and for Allah, you will find that will to change.
What is life without those little pricks of challenges to set us back on the right track?
