Beautiful Nights (Part 1)
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In the name of Allah, the All Merciful, the Ever Merciful.
وَهُوَ الَّذِي جَعَلَ اللَّيْلَ وَالنَّهَارَ خِلْفَةً لِّمَنْ أَرَادَ أَن يَذَّكَّرَ أَوْ أَرَادَ شُكُورًا
And it is He who has made the night and the day in succession for whoever desires to remember or desires gratitude.
About 18 days till Ramadan, brothers and sisters, and we need to prepare for it from now.
Our life can be divided into night and day. Each one following the other.
يُغْشِي اللَّيْلَ النَّهَارَ يَطْلُبُهُ حَثِيثًا وَالشَّمْسَ وَالْقَمَرَ وَالنُّجُومَ مُسَخَّرَاتٍ بِأَمْرِهِ ۗ أَلَا لَهُ الْخَلْقُ وَالْأَمْرُ ۗ تَبَارَكَ اللَّهُ رَبُّ الْعَالَمِينَ
He covers the night with the day, chasing it rapidly; and [He created] the sun, the moon, and the stars, subjected by His command. Unquestionably, His is the creation and the command; blessed is Allah, Lord of the worlds.
Let us reflect on our nights in this post. How can we make our nights better? How can we prepare for the night of Qadr in Ramadan? Lets start preparing now by changing our night habits.
I will write more on the next post Insha’Allah=Allah willing. One advice is avoiding all screens — mobile, tv, computer — at night, except out of need, and going to bed early.
Allah knows Best.
