Our tongues quietly mumble: We want Ramadan and we love it, while our actions shout the opposite!

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Ramadan is Less than Two Months Away!
For those of us who are drunk and drowning in shirk, sin, and innovation, it is time to rehabilitate and cleanse ourselves with Tawheed, obedience to Allah and adherence to the Sunnah of His Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم).

Let us rehabilitate ourselves now so that once Ramadan enters, our hearts and limbs will worship Allah alone, setting up no partners with Him!

Let us rehabilitate ourselves now so that once Ramadan enters, our limbs will only perform the actions that are pleasing to Allah!

Let us rehabilitate ourselves now so that once Ramadan enters, our actions will be in accordance to the Sunnah of our beloved Messenger Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم), and so that we will only follow the way of his companions; the best of mankind after the Prophets and Messengers!

Rehabilitation and cleansing takes time, and what better time than now!

The Salaf us Saleh used to anticipate and prepare for Ramadan way before it entered, and they used to supplicate to Allah, asking Him to allow them to reach it.

What about you?! What is the extent of your anticipation, preparation and supplication?

Or will you be from amongst those who foolishly wait until the first day of Ramadan to desperately attempt to rectify yourself while you are still drunk with shirk, sin, and innovation?! Consequently, you may only become sober once the month is over.

Allah, the Most High, says:

((وَاتَّقُوا يَوْمًا تُرْجَعُونَ فِيهِ إِلَى اللَّهِ ثُمَّ تُوَفَّى كُلُّ نَفْسٍ مَا كَسَبَتْ وَهُمْ لَا يُظْلَمُونَ))

{Fear a day when you will return to your Lord, then everyone will be rewarded based on his deeds and they will not be oppressed.}

(Surah al Baqarah: 281)

And He, the Most Glorious, said:

(( وَأَمَّا مَنْ خَافَ مَقَامَ رَبِّهِ وَنَهَى النَّفْسَ عَنِ الْهَوَى فَإِنَّ الْجَنَّةَ هِيَ الْمَأْوَى ))

{And whoever fears standing in front of his Lord, and forbids himself from his desires, his abode will be Paradise.}(Surah al Naziyat: 40)

He, the Most Merciful, further said:

(( أَلَمْ يَأْنِ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَنْ تَخْشَعَ قُلُوبُهُمْ لِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ وَمَا نَزَلَ مِنَ الْحَقِّ وَلَا يَكُونُوا كَالَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ مِنْ قَبْلُ فَطَالَ عَلَيْهِمُ الْأَمَدُ فَقَسَتْ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَكَثِيرٌ مِنْهُمْ فَاسِقُونَ ))

{Has not the time come for those who believe that their hearts should feel humbled at the remembrance of Allah and at the truth which has come down to them, and that they should not become like those who were given the Book before them and the term was prolonged for them, but their hearts were hardened, and many of them are wicked} (Surah al Hadid: 16)

May Allah guide us all! Our tongues quietly mumble: We want Ramadan and we love it, while our actions shout the opposite!

Our actions say: No, Ramadan! Do not approach us! We do not want to awaken from our sinning dreams and transgression! We do not want to become sober from our intoxication of shirk, innovation and sin! Please do not disturb us!

My dear brother and sister begin cleansing yourself from now, so that once Ramadan enters, your hearts and limbs will easily accept the abundant amount of good. This is how one truly prepares and benefits for the coming of this blessed month.
