Ramadhan Spirit Doesn't Have To End

Bismillahi Ar-Rahmani Ar-Rahim
Assalamualaikum brothers and sisters,

By the grace of Allah, who granted us the chance and opportunity to reach this blessed month of Ramadhan, a month in which the gates of Paradise are opened wide and the gates of the Hellfire are shut, a month wherein we get closer to Him by fasting through the day and praying in the night, a month which contains a night more virtuous than a thousand months. This is a season of forgiveness and the season of unimaginable rewards from Allah the Most Great, Most Merciful, Most Forgiving!

My dear brothers and sisters, this blessed month only stays for a few days and then will eventually leave us, so we should not leave a second or a single moment in this last ten nights without beneficial action and obedience. The last ten nights of Ramadhan is a major time to ask forgiveness. In Hadith Qudsi, Allah said:

O son of Adam, so long as you call upon Me and ask of Me,
I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind.

O son of Adam, were your sins to reach the clouds of the sky and were you then to ask forgiveness of Me, I would forgive you.

O son of Adam, were you to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth and were you then to face Me, ascribing no partner to Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great at it. (At-Tirmidhi)

Hence in this last ten nights, Ramadhan spirit doesn't have to end but let’s us keep upgrading our du’a and ask for His forgiveness, take a glimpse and observe how the pious people were consistent in their worships; they would spend their night prayers remembering Allah with humility and make du’a. Their focus on the hereafter and they truly knew the value and blessings of Ramadhan. They were not distracted by meaningless distractions. So, may Allah give us the taufiq to gain full benefit out of this Ramadhan Insya-Allah. O Allah, forgives us, have mercy on us, unite us, and help us all to live our lives for Your pleasure. Ameen.

Ilal liqo, Ma'assalamah.
