Just for a Smile: The Most Beautiful Sight

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The Most Beautiful and Precious Sight of Ramadan for me:

Seeing mothers, daughters, wives and sisters handing out sleeping bags and other supplies to their men as they got ready for ‘Itikaaf for the last 10 days. Some even joining them with their excited little children (it’s camping time for them) while others parted after Taraweeh. It was a heart-warming view and even though I wasn’t directly involved in any of it, I still felt this immense happiness that it literally soared my mood to the highest level. It always does. I could feel the peace just by being a random spectator of such a noble activity. I’m sure Allah SWT must be so happy to see such families joining together in their efforts to worship Him. I pray that Allah SWT accepts all their ‘Ibadaat and grants them His Approval. And I also pray that He SWT makes our families from the families which He SWT mentions happily and proudly in front of the Malaa-ikah! Allahumma Ameen.

The first odd night’s going to end here.

May Allah SWT accept all your du’aas and ‘Ibadaat! Ameen.

Wishing you all a beautiful last 10 days of Ramadan!

Let’s make it easy for our families and cooperate in khayr!

وَالْمُؤْمِنُونَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتُ بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَاءُ بَعْضٍ ۚ يَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَيُقِيمُونَ الصَّلَاةَ وَيُؤْتُونَ الزَّكَاةَ

وَيُطِيعُونَ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ ۚ أُولَٰئِكَ سَيَرْحَمُهُمُ اللَّهُ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ

وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ جَنَّاتٍ تَجْرِي مِن تَحْتِهَا الْأَنْهَارُ خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا وَمَسَاكِنَ طَيِّبَةً فِي جَنَّاتِ عَدْنٍ ۚ وَرِضْوَانٌ مِّنَ

اللَّهِ أَكْبَرُ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ هُوَ الْفَوْزُ الْعَظِيمُ

The believers, men and women, are Auliyâ’ (helpers, supporters, friends, protectors) of one another; they enjoin (on the people) Al-Ma‘rûf , and forbid (people) from Al-Munkar (i.e. polytheism and disbelief of all kinds, and all that Islâm has forbidden); they perform As-Salât (Iqâmat-as-Salât), and give the Zakât, and obey Allâh and His Messenger. Allâh will have His Mercy on them. Surely Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise. (71) Allâh has promised the believers -men and women, – Gardens under which rivers flow to dwell therein forever, and beautiful mansions in Gardens of ‘Adn (Eden Paradise). But the greatest bliss is the Good Pleasure of Allâh. That is the supreme success. (72)

[Surat at-Tawbah]

O Allah SWT be pleased with us like You are pleased with the Sahaba & Sahabiyaat!

Wasalamu ‘alaykum warahmatullah,

-Umm Sulaym

P.S. SubhanAllah how can I forget to mention the following: Please remember our Muslim brothers and sisters struggling in Burma, Syria, all Muslim/non-Muslim countries. Please don’t desert them in your du’aas inshaa’Allah.


Enlighten the Ummah
