Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:
شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِي أُنزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنُ هُدًى لِّلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَاتٍ مِّنَ الْهُدَىٰ وَالْفُرْقَانِ
(Qur’ān 02:185). ‘Shahru Ramađāna Al-Ladhī ‘Unzila Fīhi Al-Qur’ānu Hudan Lilnnāsi Wa Bayyinātin Mina Al-Hudá Wa Al-Furqān’, ‘The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion.’ Ṣadaqa Llāhu l-‘aẓīm.
Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla is honoring the holy month of Ramaḍān. The Qur’ān was sent in this month as the means of guidance for people. There are many miracles in it. It shows good things and orders goodness. It has a great value. But certainly, mankind, the majority of people don’t know its value. When they don’t appreciate it, they are at loss. What is important, shukr to Allāh ﷻ, is that we spent and are spending this Ramaḍān all together.
Days are passing quickly. A month is already gone. People of old times used to do it in mosques. They do it in
some mosques now as well. They start to say “Al-Wada’ (farewell)” in old sultanate mosques. In between tarāwīḥ prayer, as consolation for people, they recite beautiful poems and qaṣīdah as it is leaving like a guest. It is a good thing to honor it. Whatever good things can be done; there is no problem. Contrarily, there is benefit in it for people to be encouraged and to love it more. Allāh ﷻ has made them love it anyway. Who do this in Ramaḍān, this holy month, there is barakah for all of them.
We say Ramaḍān is over. Another year is gone from our lives. Shukr to Allāh ﷻ, our destination is a beautiful place with virtuous kindness of Allāh ﷻ. Therefore, life’s passing, but what’s important is that it’s not wasted and to spend it as a beloved one of Allāh ﷻ. Because a visitor who is going to meet you wants to see favours given by Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla in this world from you. As He ﷻ has given them to you, taking them from Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla makes Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla happy.
Therefore, life should not be wasted. Make intention for the pleasure of Allāh ﷻ. As long as you pray and fast, what else can life be? These people who don’t understand this waste their lives in pubs, coffee shops, here and there, or just from where they sit. There are many people who are lazy to get up from where they sit to pray. May Allāh ﷻ not make us from them. May He ﷻ guide them inshā’aLlāh.
May Allāh ﷻ bless this Ramaḍān. May Allāh ﷻ accept your fasting, your zakāh and ṣadaqah. May Allāh ﷻ accept your goodness inshā’aLlāh. May Allāh ﷻ make them last and make the favours last. We must make shukr to Allāh ﷻ. We are making shukr to Allāh ﷻ. Shukran liLlāh. He ﷻ increases [favours] with shukr and doesn’t decrease them. We make shukr to Allāh ﷻ so that our shukr increases our īmān and goodness inshā’aLlāh. Ash-shukru liLlāh wa l-ḥamdu liLlāh.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
