RAMADHAN, please please don't go!! 😢😢😢
Every Eid, I always and always have this kind of feeling. Alhamdulillah, Allah gave me the chance to witness this year's Ramadhan. May Allah let us witness more and more Ramadhans to come. Every year, I always say goodbye to Ramadhan with tears unconsciously falling all over my face. That emotion of sadness though. It's all coming back to me now as I read my farewell sentiments to Ramadhan last year:
Farewell to our beloved guest, oh our dearest Ramadhan. 😢
Tears fell our eyes as we realize that you are ready to go. The time has gone by so quickly. It feels like just the other day that we welcomed you into our homes, into our lives. You brought with you the Qur'an, the Taraweeh, the Siyam, and the peace & tranquility. When you came, our bodies were starved, but our souls were filled. Most importantly, you brought with you a night which is better than a thousand months, you brought with you a gift which is so great that only on the Day of Judgement will we truly know its value.
Oh Ramadhan, how we hope and pray that we have gained maximum benefit from you. How we hope and pray that we did not waste our time on things other than the gifts that came from you. How we hope and pray that we have been forgiven during our time with you. Most of all, we hope and pray that on the day we will meet our Lord, our time with you will causes us to smile. Oh Ramadhan, you brought with you love and unity between the people of this Ummah. Because of you, our noble guest, we strived hard to help one another, to guide one another, to show kindness to one another and to love one another simply because we share the Kalimah of LAA ILAAHA ILLALLAH.
Oh Ramadhan, this Ummah will surely miss you! We hope and pray that this love and unity in this Ummah will continue and grow from strength to strength after you have gone.
Al Widaa Ya Ramadhan, may we meet again next year, in shaa Allah. 🙏
