We stayed off nourishment from dawn to dusk
Our breaths were dearer to Allah than the scent of musk
Hours we spent poring over the Qur’an
Will draw us closer to earning his Ridwaan
Ditching sleep for Tahajjud was no easy task
A myriad of favours from Him we had to ask
Long into the night we stood for Tarawih
All round the day we generously observed Nawafil
The times we turned our minds away from food
Have done our perseverance a lot of good
And for the scorching days of thirst
We get to enter through the gate of Raihan first
As we scooped handfuls of staple for Zakatul Fitr
Did we promise to keep our daily Witr
Across the world believers rejoice in Eid
How pleasant it feels to follow a wonderful creed
It’s time to spot the night
Whose majesty will fill our souls with light
Utilizing it wisely will bring delight
And set the course of our lives aright
Our Ibaadah must soar to greater heights
Sinful deeds take off on a flight
We pray Allah lifts all our plights
For we exist only by His Power and Might
Brothers and sisters, sit tight
While we watch our world glow bright
This month, only the mind with insight
Will not give in to needless fright
That day when we behold His Sight
We wouldn’t be anything but alright
Alhamdulillah, the past 23 days have been wonderful. I’ve been too busy experiencing Ramadhan to actually write about it. Waking up early each day for Tahajjud, Sahur,the self restraint, increased awareness about the deen, Iftar at the mosque, Tarawih- all have been a rewarding experience.
I am naturally biased towards this month because I’m a Ramadhan baby. It is a blessing from ALLAH and I wish it didn’t pass so quickly.
There’s so much to say about Ramadhan 1433 A.H and in shaa Allah I’d get around to giving a good summary later.
I urge you all to make maximum use of the remaining days and sincerely hope to meet the Night of Majesty. ( Laylatul Qadr) It is better than a thousand months without it.
It’s been about three months since i put anything up. Many of you might have wondered whether I had lost the will or my spring of ideas stopped gushing. Well, it was due to none of that. I must say that it hurt not to be able to project my feelings and views about happenings around me. And my, a lot of things have transpired in my own niche of existence, in Nigeria, in health, the lives of women and children and also in Islam. Let’s just say the globe is revolving at an alarming speed and trying to catch up with it has many times left me breathless.
In addition, the stress of a medic’s life caught up with me. So much schoolwork kept me away from many activities and interests. But now, a balance has been struck and I would henceforth give adequate attention to many other things asides academics.
Internet access has also been a major bane with WordPress for Blackberry acting up big time. WordPress for iPhone provided little succour. The wireless connection on campus has, as expected, been nothing to write home about.
Inspite of these challenges, I want nothing more than to continue this with more zeal than I started off with.
