A reflection of Ramadhaan
This Ramadhaan has quite possibly been the best and the most difficult Ramadhaan of my life.
Here’s thirteen things I learnt this Ramadhaan:
- Allah listens and Allah accepts. So ask of Him and plead to Him only.
- Reading Qur’aan every day made my day complete. Most definitely only “in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.” (13:28)
- We aren’t guaranteed the next one so make the most of this one.
- Appreciate the people in your life and take every opportunity to spend time with them.
- I can’t wait for the days where I don’t have to study in Ramadhaan.
- DON’T GO INTO A BAKERY. You will buy everything and eat nothing. I know I’ve said this before, but this time, I really mean it.
- Your sleep after fajr will either make you feel like you’re ready to take on the world or it will make you feel like you just need to go back to bed. There’s no in between.
- I seriously need to make dua that when I’m big and married, my husband will make sehri because wow, I’m a zombie.
- Iftaar parties never stop being fun, it’s a whole bonding session where you read salaah with your friends and then have a long deep meaningful conversation about everything campus to favourite colours to how we make dua that we’re best friends in Jannah also.
- The best kind of people are the ones who make dua for you. Nothing made me happier than one of my mamajees sending me a message saying that they made dua for me in Makkah/Madinah/Palestine.
- Bonding with my sister involves going grocery shopping and her never leaving my room, even at 2 am when all I want to do is sleep.
- Cooking is therapeutic.
- The feeling of peace that Ramadhaan brings is unlike anything else. May Allah replace the anxiety and stress all of us feel with peace and contentment.
تقبل الله منا ومنكم
May Allah accept from you and us.
Please remember me in your duas.
