Purifying the Heart in Preparation for Ramadhan

  • Ramadhan is coming. This is the month in which Allah s.w.t. promises His servants mercy, forgiveness, and the eternal abode of Paradise.

  • The Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. would prepare himself in a manner that he deemed worthy to be receiving such blessings from Allah s.w.t. This was also the tradition of generations upon generations of pious men and women who came after him s.a.w.

  • Let us ponder upon the life of the Prophet s.a.w. and that of his companions. They began increasing their good deeds months before the arrival of Ramadhan. Rasulullah s.a.w. would fast frequently in the month Sya’baan.
