very simple topic
In the name of merciful Allah
In response to the current questionnaire we would like to whisper in your ear and reach your heart in simple few words as we don’t aim to annoy you . here is some technical simple steps to get ready for Ramadan.
First of all: be thankful that you would witness this blessed days .
And I like to start with this example :
If you have this very distinguished guest and he was absent for a very long time and you knew that he would come and visit you very soon .what would you do to get ready ?!!
What if this very special guest who was absent for eleven months was the most beloved month by your merciful Allah ,the Islamic nation and the prophet-peace upon him-?!
How many people we prayed with the last Ramadan but Allah wished to take their lives to meet their god and miss Ramadan this year… what was meant to be impeded the wishes of reaching Ramadan!!!
My dear brother :Ramadan is a golden opportunity please don’t miss it when the demons are cuffed ,the hell doors are closed and the paradise doors are opened.
You definitely cant reach a high level of hard working unless you get ready .
Let's put it in this way, do you know why when you pray after imam in the mosque in Ramadan and he& the people around him crying and you just standing there out of this all?!! Wondering what to do cry by force ?! you just can't as if your heart was from the steel not blood and flesh..
The one you follow in the pray had prepared for Ramadan for a very long time before it comes so he could receive it very well so he had the honor of humility & devoutness in his pray.
This one who had prepared for Ramadan don’t give up with the things he do in it throughout the rest of the year.
And ashamed I say that it is the way many people don’t take ,what a bitty !!
So you would have said by now how can I prepare for Ramadan ??
I have already miss this great opportunity.
Very simple thing before we get started:
Our good ancestors' year was all about Ramadan: six months before it praying to Allah that they can reach the next Ramadan ,and the six months after Ramadan praying for Allah to accept what they had done in Ramadan .
Here is a few steps to get ready for Ramadan:
Ask Allah to help us all to get this steps done ,open your heart &read:
1] by repentance we start ….
It is good thing to start with .ask Allah to be one of the forgived ones so wash your heart from your vices.
And pray to Allah saying : oh Allah, if you don’t forgive me and set your mercy on me, I'll be a big loser. Oh Allah, accept my repentance. Oh Allah I cant humiliate myself but for you. would you show me the way to receive Ramadan well??
2] we will pray as much as our prophet did :so we can keep doing that in Ramadan and Allah would build a palace in the paradise for this .
3]we will ask Allah to forgive us at least one hundred time a day and you can show us your big will and make this one thousand time .
4] pray two prostrations at night before you sleep and ask Allah whatever you want and do the same after finishing them because angels at this time do the same as you do for you [ask Allah to accept your pray & to reply your ask].
5] ask Allah whatever you wish for yourself , your beloved ones & the Islamic nation .it will have a great effect although it may last for a few minutes.
6]fast every Mondays& Thursdays and the lunar days [13/14/15]
7]finally read at least one chapter of the holy Qura'n.
Only one very small last thing
THE only god had gave you the grace of sight, hearing and mind so use them for good and don't waste them on television or other temptation.
I am sorry that I talked for a very long time .
And may Allah send his peace and mercy upon all of you
