Ramadan is…

Dhu’n-Nun al-Misri, may Allah be merciful to him said:

Rajab is for abandoning destructive things, Sha`ban is for performing much acts of obedience, and Ramadan is for the expectation of noble miracles.
Whoever does not abandon destructive things, does not perform acts of obedience, and does not expect noble miracles, then he is among the charlatans worse than rubbish.

He may Allah be merciful to him, also said:

Rajab is the month of planting the seeds, Sha`ban is the month of watering them, and Ramadan is the month of harvesting. One can only harvest what has been planted as one can only reap what is sown. Whoever forfeits the planting of seeds and tending to them will regret when the day comes for harvesting. His conjectures will fall far below the evils of his ending

– Sultan al-Awliyah Shaykh ‘Abdul Qadir al-Jilani in his al-Ghunyat Talibi Tariq al-Haqq –

Ramadan Mubarak @ 1438/2017

As-salamu ‘alaykum,

When the door of fasting is opened in the month of Ramadan, the soldiers that carry the lights of divine majesty descend with their chains and restrain the mouths of the lower selves, thereby preventing them from their worldly foods and increasing their yearning for the beauty of the foods of Paradise.

—Shaykh Muhammad al-Qandusi

May Allah bless you all with wonderful days and nights of ibadah and acceptance

Sayyiduna Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman (radi Allahu ‘anhu)

Sayyiduna Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman (radi Allahu ‘anhu) resided in Madinag and was raised in a Muslim household. He participated in all the battles with the Prophet (salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) except Badr where he was bound by an agreement made with Quraysh.

Sayyiduna Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman (radi Allahu ‘anhu) could easily be entrusted with confidential and sensitive information. For this reason, the Prophet (salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) disclosed the list of hypocrites to him fo rthe purpose of tracking their movements. Sayyiduna Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman (radi Allahu ‘anhu) was also selected by Prophet (salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) to infiltrate the enemy camp during the battle of al-Khandaq to gather intelligence.

During the Caliphate of Sayyiduna ‘Umar al-Farooq (radi Allahu ‘anhu), he was placed second in command in the battle of Nihawand against the Persian Empire. Under his leadership, the Muslims won this crucial battle and many others besides. Sayyiduna Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman (radi Allahu ‘anhu) was appointed as the governor of the former Persian Capital. While even on his death bed, he continued to advise the Muslims in the affairs of the their religion.

Sorrow…

What does life give me in the end but sorrow?
What do love’s good and evil send but sorrow?
I’ve only seen one true companion – pain,
And I have known no faithful friend but sorrow

– Hafiz Shirazi rahimahu Llah –
