Ramadhaan is the month to boost our spiritual batteries of Imaan to a peak. Hence if in this very month we shirk in the fulfillment of our ibaadah or fail to refrain from all sin, we would be defeating the main purpose of this mubarak month — the inculcating of Taqwa (fear of Allah) in our lives.
Therefore it is important that we mentally prepare ourselves for Ramadhaan even before it comes. For this we should immediately commence a thorough reading of the “Virtues of Ramadhaan” by Shaikhul Hadith Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya Saheb (R.A.). Find a suitable time and read it to the entire family. Then perhaps the true spirit of Ramadhaan will be kindled in the entire family. Perhaps it will then be a Ramadhaan that will be a turning point in our lives. After Ramadhaan has gone, the punctuality upon salaah, recitation of Qur’an, etc., and most importantly the refraining from sin will still be a part of our lives.
May Allah Ta’ala enable us to earn His love and assist us in earning the maximum benefit in this Mubarak month. Aameen.
