Ramadaan Farewell Message
"Salaam to you, O month of Revelation: Salaam to you O Month of Forgiveness
and release from Jahannum! Salaam to you O Month of the Illumination of Hearts!
Salaam to you, O Month of compensation of past sins! Salaam to you, O Sacred month,
wherein lies a night which is better than a thousand months.
Salaam, O Month of Ramadan!
“O Sacred month, whose nights are blessed by Almighty Allah, and are a means of one’s
past sins! Salaam to you, O Month of Virtue and Blessings of Allah:
Salaam to you, O Month of Charity and fasting! Salaam
to you, O Month of Ibadat, Tarawee and
remembrance of Allah! Salaam to you,
O Month of Takbir and
glorification of Allah!”
O Almighty Allah! We are the Ummah of Your Beloved Nabee - Rahamathul Liel Aala’meen Sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam- Thank You Ya Allah for Your great Gift of Ma'rifah and Tawhid, and Mahabbah during this Mubarak Month that belongs exclusively to You. Ramadan has taught us that our foremost duty is to understand Islam and to make it understood and to become more familiar with one another. The purpose of this reminder is not to brag about the past. The aim is to underline the fact that the civilization that created Islam and its life-giving teachings, are still at our disposal, and they summon us with the Divine Call.
Salaam to you, O Honourable Visitor, O Musaffir from Jannah, we bid you
an honourable farewell. Salaam, to you O Month of Ramadan!
Blessed are you O Month of Ramadan. We do not know
whether you will be a witness for us, or
against us (on the Day of Judgment).
O Ramadan! This is your last interview with us; we do not know whether you will return to us (in our lifetime) or whether death will overpower us. O Month of Ramadan! How fortunate is the person, to whom you will return with blessings of Almighty Allah, and how unfortunate is the one, against whose misdeeds you will be a witness (on the Day of Judgment!). May Almighty Allah bless us with your presence for a long time, and may He light our lamps with your divine light. The performance of performing Tarawee at home is coming to an end, and our lamps are going to be put off (by your departure).
No one will wait for Iftaar, and no one will see the stars for his or her Suhuur. For a time our bellies were under your command, and our eyes were kept awake in constant Ibadat. Undoubtedly, we are for Almighty Allah, and to Him we will all return! Oh! How sad will be your departure and separation from us. O Month of Glory! The day of your departure will be sorrowful for all of us.
There is a morning after every night and there is a night after every day. As servants of Almighty Allah, we must continue with our good deeds so that the blessings of Ramadan will remain with us every day for the rest of our lives.
We thank Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala abundantly for having blessed us with the great month of Ramadan. We thank Him abundantly for bringing us out of darkness and into the light of the Most Glorious Qur'an. We thank Him for blessing us with knowledge of His Revelations; for teaching us wisdom, for blessing us with grateful hearts, and for helping us grow morally, intellectually and spiritually throughout the
O Almighty Allah Rabbul Ala’meen! ! We have been weighed down heavily with our sins, with our errors and with our mistakes. Save us from drowning in the ocean of our sins and take us safely to the shores of Thy Mercy, Thy Forgiveness and Thy Mahabbah. O Creator of the heavens and the earth! Help us, in whatever little time that is left in our lives that is rapidly coming to an end, so that we do our duty towards Thee and in Thy way and in the service of Your Din of Haqq. O Allah! Forgive us before death and do not let us depart from this Doonya without the declaration of:
"La Illalaha Illallahoo Muhammadar Rasoolulah."
In these times of tension and heartache during the CoVid 19 pandemic we must not neglect the power of Ibadat and supplication to Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala. We pray Insha'Allah to our Glorious Creator to cleanse the hearts of the Ummah of all traces of conceit, ego, vainglory and ranccour. May Almighty Allah Tabaraka Wata'ala grant us all the strength and Sabir to display forbearance, magnanimity, mercy and compassion in our dealings with others.
May we be granted the success where the Most Holy Qur’an will become the most treasured and cherished possession in our lives then the reward and Baraka’h will Insha’Allah not be limited only to Ramadan but we will be enjoying the fruits of Mahabbah, love, compassion, caring and sharing every day of the year for the rest of our lives. The Most Holy Qur’an is explicit on this point for Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata’ala declares in verse 162 of Surahtul Al-An’am:
"Say: Surely my prayer and my sacrifice and my life
and my death are (all) for Allah, the Lord of the worlds."
Finally, we pray to Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala, to accept all our endeavours, our fasting, our good deeds and to forgive all our shortcomings, our mistakes, and errors, and to grant us to live by what we say, and not count us among those who say things, they do not do. Ameen!
And Almighty Allah is the All-Knowing.
And Peace be upon those who follow the Guidance.
The Truth is from Almighty Allah; the errors are all mine
and I stand to be corrected.
Baarak Allaahu Feekum wa-sal-Allaahu wa-Sallam 'alaa
Nabiyyina Muhammad sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam.
Was Salamualaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu.
