Ramadhaan 2022 - Day 28

A couple of days remain of this blessed month. We anticipated it like the coming of a new beginning. We prepared our souls for spiritual nourishment in the absence of food and drink. But we found ourselves weak. We did not meet our goals. We may have not spent as much time with the Qur’ān as we may have wished. We may have slept through the times of Qiyām ul-Layl. We found ourselves weak in seeking His mercy.

Now is not the time to cry over spilt milk, nor the time to console ourselves with the anticipation of the next Ramaḍān.

Reflect on this wonderful statement by Imam Ibn Rajab (Allah have mercy on him) in his Laṭāʾif:

“Let those who have failed to make the most of this month of Ramaḍān end it with good because actions are judged by their endings.”
