Joy because of the Coming of the Month of Ramadan, by Shaikh Fawzaan
|So in brief, this is a tremendous opportunity in your life O Muslim, so take advantage of it and ask Allaah to assist you upon righteous actions in it, and ask Allaah for acceptance and an increase from His bounty. For indeed the one who reaches this month of Ramadan and Allaah enables him to achieve benefit from it, then Allaah has bestowed upon him a magnificent blessing that nothing can equal.
By Allaah, the millionaires, owners of skyscrapers and realtors cannot equal this. By Allaah, nothing can equal up to this month for the one who Allaah, Exalted and Most High, grants success in it, even if he doesn't own anything from this worldly life, not even a penny. If Allaah bestows upon him (success) in this (blessed) month, then he is the one who truly profits and he is the rich person in reality. The rich person is not the individual who possesses the dunyah but spoils his aakhirah (afterlife); (if this is his case) he is poor and destitute and has ruined his dunyah and aakhirah.
Subhanak Allaahuma wa bihamdika ash-hadu anlaa illaaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk
If I said anything correct, then it is from Allaah (subhanahu wa taa'ala), and if I erred, then that is from me and shaytan.
