Strengthening Our Relationship with Allah s.w.t. through Istiqamah

  • We are now nearing the end of Ramadan. How has our ibadah been thus far? Have we optimized every moment? If there are among us those who have missed this opportunity, then let us strive to increase our efforts to perform beneficial deeds in these last 10 nights of Ramadan, with the hopes of improving our relationship with Allah s.w.t.

  • When we strengthen our relationship with Allah s.w.t., Allah s.w.t. will most surely increase His blessings upon us. This is especially so as we are now in the last 10 nights of Ramadan, where Allah s.w.t. grants His servants who have been consistent (istiqamah) in their worship of Him with the gift of Lailatul Qadr.

  • Part of the wisdom why Allah s.w.t. does not reveal the occurrence of Lailatul Qadr is such that we remain consistent in our ibadah and make full use of our time. It also serves to motivate and instil hope in a believer to remain consistent (istiqamah) in his worship so that he may reap the rewards of Ramadan even at its very end.
