Today is the first day of the blessed month of Safar. This month is a bit heavy month. Everything has its wisdom. By the wisdom of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla, this month of Safar is heavy. Allah ﷻ knows its wisdom. There are many wisdoms. One of them is for people to remember Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. They say, “Days are passing the same and months are passing the same.” It is to not forget Him ﷻ.
“Safaru l-Khayr” says our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. As it is heavy, insha’Allah it will be good. It is good for us. May it be good for Muslims. And may it be difficult to the others, to the enemies of Islam. Because Islam and Kufr are always in war. There can never be peace, because you cannot be friends with those who are against Allah ﷻ.
Certainly, it doesn’t mean we should attack them for being Kafirs and say “You are Kafir.” They just can’t be together. Kufr and Iman cannot be together. A Kafir is in Kufr. We can never accept them. Iman, Islam is the religion of all people. It is the religion Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla gave to them. But those who leave Islam and go into Kufr give themselves their punishment.
Therefore, there are some things like this month of Safar which are for our goodness. Wish for goodness and you will have goodness, says our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. Who are in Kufr strive to do everything on their own. As long as Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla doesn’t want it, it won’t happen. Therefore, this blessed month of Safar will be a good month for all of us insha’Allah.
It has its Duties, of course, for people to remember Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla and for their benefit. What is Mustahabb (recommended) is to recite 3 times Kalimah Shahadah, 300 times AstaghfiruLlah, 7 times Ayatu l-Kursi and 7 times Surat Al-Fil every day. Recite these and there will be goodness with the permission of Allah ﷻ. And most importantly, don’t forget about Sadaqah. Give Sadaqah a bit more this month.
Sadaqah is given every day anyway, Shukr to Allah ﷻ. It is something we always tell. It is the advice of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim. There must be a box in every house so that you put Sadaqah of the day in that box every day before going out. Many people say they are giving a lot of Sadaqah. You are not giving it every day then. Even if you give a lot, the daily Sadaqah is different. When you give Sadaqah in the morning, Shukr to Allah ﷻ that Sadaqah is valid until the evening. Otherwise, if you give it once a week, it is not daily.
Therefore, make sure to make a little box and put it by the door. Write Sadaqah on it so that you make it a habit to put Sadaqah before leaving the house and be protected. This is the most important thing. This month will be good and not bad for Muslims with the permission of Allah ﷻ.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
