Ramadan is almost here Mashallah, How Blessed are we to be yet again given a Month full of Mercy and Forgiveness, A Month when Iblis (Shaytan/Satan) is chained and the Gates of Hell are closed, A Month when Believers are completely immersed in remembrance and Thanking Allah without their Hearts been invaded by Iblis, A Month when the gates of Paradise are opened for their believers, A chance yet again to Beg Allah’s forgiveness and ask for his Mercy for the year and Life ahead. Indeed, A Truly Blessed Month Ramadan is .. !!


Some Useful Duas

1. Invocation for Sighting New Moon : Allahu Akbar, Allahumma ahillahu alayna bilamni wal’eemaani, wassalaamati wal-Islaami, wattawfeeqi limaa tuhibbu Rabbana wa tardhaa, Rabbunaa wa Rabbukallahu
Tra: Allah is Great, O Allah bring us the new moon with security and Faith, with peace and in Islam, and in Harmony with what our Lord loves and what Pleases him. Our Lord and your Lord is Allah.

2. Invocations for Breaking the Fast: (a) Thahabadh-dhama’u wabtallatil’urooqu, wa thabatal-‘arju ‘in shaa’Allah
Tra: The Thirst is gone, the veins are moistened and the reward is confirmed, if Allah wills

(b) Allahumm inne as’aluka birahmatikal-latee wasi’at kulla shay’in ‘an taghfira lee
Tra: O Allah! I ask you for your Mercy, which encompasses all things, that You forgive Me.

3. Invocations for a Family who invites you to Break Fast with them: Aftara ‘indakumus-saa’imoona, wa ‘akayla ta’aamakumul-‘abraaru, wa sallat ‘alaykumul-malaa’ikatu
Tra: With You, those who are fasting have broken their fast, you have fed those who are righteous, and the angels recite their prayers upon you.

4. Invocations when you see the first Dates of the season: Allahumma baarik lanaa fee thamarinaa, wa baarik lanaa fee madeenatinaa wa baarik lanaa fee saa’inaa wa baarik lanaa fee muddinaa.
Tra: O Allah! Bless us in our Dates and bless us in our town, bless us in our Sa’ and in our Mudd (Sa’ and Mudd are both dry measures used for agricultural produce b the Arabs in the Prophet’s Time).


Having said that, An crucial question is yet to be answered. Not to me, Not here, But inside your hearts. How much do we utilise the Divine Month we are blessed with ? What If this is the Last Ramadan of our life, and our change to place our plea before Allah, A last change to repent and beg for Forgiveness ? A Last chance to decide – Hell or Paradise ? An easy choice which is, But can be achieved only if Allah wills, only if we succeed to plead Allah for HIS guidance and Support.

Trust me Brothers and Sisters, We are Lucky to be fasting this Ramadan Mashallah. Utilise every second of it, Thank Allah for all his bounties, Ask for good health for your Loved ones and life ahead, Beg Forgiveness, Change your Ill Habits ; For we MAYNOT be lucky enough to Fast again …..

Hell Or Paradise, Dear Friends. Decide which Now, Do Not Delay.

To be Continued in Ramadan..
