Ramadhan is almost over but there is still time! + Perfect time to make those resolutions you never achieved!
Assalamu Alaikum warahmatullahi ta'aala wabarakaatuhu
The blessed days are slowly finishing, that mubarak guest who we love having is almost out of the door, the shower of blessings is almost over, the over filled masajid, beautiful recitations of the Quran almost over, the huge sale, all you want to gain reward announcements, the decorations and opened doors of jannah, chained shayateen....all about to finish...
Did you take an advantage of all this? Did you make this Ramadhan like you always wished, were your nights and days one in worship? Did you answer all sales, and stock up good deeds?
If you are still saying no...get up! Make an intention of taubah, do ghusl and wash away all sins, read two rak'ah salatul taubah and haajah, and start! YOU STILL HAVE TIME!
Knock out that frown, replace all the regret with motivation, and make these last 6 days the best!
Come on! Dont lose hope, ALLAH ta'aala is waiting, get down on your knees and ask for help, and bismillahi ta'aala start!
How many time have you made a religious resolution that your going to change, your going to leave so and so sin, this is it, but then you eventually failed? Does that mean your incapable, or you cannot? No! It means your not trying as hard, however many time times you fell as a child, you still got up and learned how to walk, didnt matter how many scrapes and bruises you got, you still learned how to ride a bike, now matter how difficult that math problem was, you still solved it in the end. Remember that project you stayed up nights to complete? Oh and dont forget how many times you tried to make that dish you love!
All of this was for this short life, and a moment of pleasure, but what about your everlasting hereafter, the exquisite indescribable paradise, can't we do this much for our whole hereafter? THERES NO BETTER TIME THAN RAMADHAN, BIG NIGHT, BLESSED MOMENT, TIME OF DUAS BEING ACCEPTED, TO REPENT SINCERELY AND MAKE THAT RESOLUTION ONCE AGAIN!
Write it down, your resolution, your taubah, the date and time, and sign it and stick it on your door.
I have to change
قُلْ يَا عِبَادِيَ الَّذِينَ أَسْرَفُوا عَلَى أَنْفُسِهِمْ لَا تَقْنَطُوا مِنْ رَحْمَةِ اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ جَمِيعًا إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ﴿الزمر53
"Say: "O Ibadi (My slaves) who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah, verily, Allah forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (Az-Zumar, 53)
