It was narrated that in the days that Musa wandered with Bani Israeel in the desert, an intense drought befell them. Together, they raised their hands towards the heavens praying for the blessed rain to come. Then, to the astonishment of Musa and all those watching, the few scattered clouds that were in the sky vanished, the heat poured down, and the drought intensified.

 
It was revealed to Musa that there was a sinner amongst the tribe of Bani Israeel who had disobeyed Allah  for more than forty …

“O son of Adam, so long as you call upon Me and ask of Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind.

Last night in Taraweeh, the shaykh recited:

قالَ لَهُ صاحِبُهُ وَهُوَ يُحاوِرُهُ أَكَفَرتَ بِالَّذى خَلَقَكَ مِن تُرابٍ ثُمَّ مِن نُطفَةٍ ثُمَّ سَوّاكَ رَجُلًا

“His companion said to him while he was conversing with him, “Have you disbelieved in He who created you from dust and then from a sperm-drop and then proportioned you [as] a man?”

{Surat al-Kahf: 18:37}

Allaah says ,

 
يٰأَيُّهَا الَّذينَ ءامَنوا كُتِبَ عَلَيكُمُ الصِّيامُ كَما كُتِبَ عَلَى الَّذينَ مِن قَبلِكُم لَعَلَّكُم تَتَّقونَ

“O you who believe, fasting has been prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you so that you may gain Taqwa.”

{Surat al-Baqarah 2:183}

 
This is a reminder to have God consciousness in all of your actions and at all times both in and out of Ramadan.

Make a great deal of du’a that Allah  makes this the Ramadan in which your iman increases and continues to increase throughout the year.

 

 
Let’s not be on a crash diet throughout the year. We tend do very little throughout the year, do a lot of worship and good deeds in Ramadan, and then get back to our “normal” life after Ramadan. Too often we drastically increase the quantity of our ibadah, but what Allah  wants is quality and sincerity and not quantity. Ramadan is about increasing our …

Ramadan is literally half way over and now there are one of two feelings going through us. We’re either saying: “Alhumdullillah I hope the last half of Ramadan goes as good or even better than the first half”
