From The Editor
Ramadhaan Mubarak, and then in a few days’ time, I wish each and every one of you, Eid Mubarak. ‘Life is like an ice-cube, it melts in no time’ – words I read a few days ago and it resonated with where we are now. Ramadhaan had just begun and it is almost over. Like an ice-cube these beloved days are melting away and before it disappears we need to take hold of the time left and make the most of every priceless moment there is.
An interesting article on how precious Ramadhaan is can be found on page 2. On reflecting on this article, we understand how fortunate we are to be able to live through another Ramadhaan. Ramadhaan comes around once a year to remind us that we can be better, that our prayer, our fasting, our devotion can reach a peak that we somehow feel we are unable to attain. Ramadhaan is the month in which we set aside most mundane activities and devote most of our time in the tilawat (recitation of Qur’aan) and the remembrance of Allah Ta’ala. What a beautiful opportunity for us to once again make good of the time we have.
Allah Ta’ala with His bounties and mercies gives us this opportunity to earn great rewards in this month. It is a month like no other. And it has a night in it, like no other. So let us search for Laylatul Qadr and let us rightfully devote our time as we ought to, insha’Allah.
My dua for each and everyone of you and for myself too, is - May Allah protect you, may Allah Ta’ala guide you, may Allah Ta’ala accept all your ibadah and may our beloved and kind Allah grant us ease and Aafiyah during these challenging times. May Allah Ta’ala forgive us for our shortcomings and may he grant Jannatul Firdoze to all our loved ones that have passed on. Aameen.
