ahlan wa sahlan ya Ramadhan

...we will greet the blessed month in a matter of days..

His boundless mercies and blessing is of this Seeker,
their precious times is of this Wisher,
prayers in the quietest of nights is of this Believer.

Ramadhan 1430H- Bloomington, IN

the man that led the prayer,
the lady that smiled in the kitchen,
the siblings that brought laughter to the dinner table.
the first since 1990, that this blessed month will be full of lonely,
hopeful, wishful, thankful, and faithful tears.


Sahl ibn Sa'd reported that the Prophet (saw) said: "There is a gate to Paradise that is called ar-Rayyan. On the Day of Resurrection it will say: 'Where are those who fasted?' When the last [one] has passed through the gate, it will be locked." [al-Bukhari and Muslim].

    Fi amanillah.
