Ramadhaan 2022 - Day 25
You have blessed me with this blessed month, a month which many did not live to see. You granted me another opportunity to get closer to You. Though throughout the year I went on chasing the dunya, You brought this month to allow me to realise where my heart really belongs – with You.
Oh Allah, I have sinned and I continue to sin, but You are all forgiving. I am a begger in Your court, asking for Your pardon. Please forgive me.
Oh Allah, I face trials like everyone else, but found solace in Your words – ‘Indeed, after hardship comes ease’. I found comfort in the way shown by Your Prophet (peace be upon him). I read his biography and the tests he faced – my difficulties were no longer worth mentioning.
Oh Allah, I lost my path many times. I wandered afar often succumbing to my desires and the whispers of the devil, but I held Your book as my guide and You showed me the light – this religion.
Oh Allah, I am sorry. I know I forget You when I am awake, and You remember me when I am asleep. I forget You when I laugh, You remember me when I cry. I forget You when I love, You remember me when I hate. I forget You when I eat, You remember me when I am hungry. I forget You when I speak, You remember me when I am silent. I forget You when I am angry, You remember me when I am patient.
But please, Oh Allah, don’t forget me when I die and enable me to remember You now whilst I am alive.
A striving soul
