As we all know, the moon has been sighted and Ramadan has now begun.
This Ramadan I am making the intention to to try to post one short article related to Ramadan, what we can do to better ourselves as Muslims, and come even closer to Allah SWT. This will be called “Ramadan Reminders” (please follow our Instagram page of the same name here, Insha’Allah). May Allah make this Ramadan one of change and transformation for us all, may He help us to realize the meaning of this beautiful month in which the Quran was revealed, may He give us baseerah and help us to see the real value of His Book and the Message of the Prophet Muhammad SAW, may Allah accept our fasts and sacrifices, may He strengthen us and help us to be better for Him and for one another, Ameen.
I just saw the Crescent Moon of Ramadan tonight and am feeling so overwhelmed and grateful. I hope that Allah never lets me forget this feeling, Ameen! I made a small video of it to share and I will share it here soon, Insha’Allah. It was such a cool experience and I hope to encourage all my brothers and sisters to get out and revive this Sunnah of greeting the Crescent Moon! It’s so exciting, Alhamdulillah.
I hope we will all benefit from this Ramadan and from these small reminders, Insha’Allah.
