…thunder rumbled throughout the night as the Angel of raindrops fulfilled orders to send intermittent rains to these desert lands…
…a not so inspiring picture of the building opposite reflected in a puddle under our kitchen window…but such a sight and the sound of rain in Madinatun Nabi produces squeals of delight, even in the middle of the night and inspires gratitude for Allah Ta’ala’s Mercy, especially after Salatul Istisqa was offered a few days ago in Masjid Nabawi. Prayers answered, parched ground quenched.
May our Du’a's increase for the pilgrims as they present themsleves on this Day of Standing. May all sins be forgiven. May we once again read the Farewell Sermon delivered on Jabal Rahmah by our Blessed HabibuLlah SallAllahu alaihi wasallam, allowing the heart to renew the salient advice he shared for his Ummah.
Remember that you will indeed meet your Lord, and that He will indeed reckon your deeds.…Remember, one day you will appear before Allah and answer your deeds. So beware, do not stray from the path of righteousness after I am gone.
Insha’Allah make the intention to fast on this auspicious Day of Arafat and make the time to reflect and offer extended Du’a: “Remember, one day you will appear before Allah and answer your deeds. So beware, do not stray from the path of righteousness after I am gone.”
All good is from Allah Ta’ala whereas mistakes are from this humble speck. May Allah Ta’ala Bless all readers, bringing you all closer to Him and His Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam. May He accept our humble efforts and grant us the capacity to be good and do good. Ameen.
