There is a bigger goal and deeper meaning behind all the significance of Ramadan. That bigger goal is to lift up the spirit of jihad in the Ummah to strive for a revived Islamic civilisation. Yet, every year, Ramadan returns as a blessing from Allah to remedy the Ummah’s apathy, only to be taken lightly by them. May you, the Daies, not become the reason for this!
Most of us reminisce about the Battle of Badr at its peak of victory, or at the point about how the angels were sent down to help defeat the enemy. We seldom reflect on how ar-Rasul SAW and the Sahabas strived with all their iltizam that led to the glorious outcome.
To make the most of this Covid-19 Ramadan, you have to turn your home into a ‘masjid’. In other words, you have to prepare your home for Ramadan, and that should not be limited to physical Ramadan decorations only.
We are only days away from COVID-19 Ramadan and its related issues. Like it or not, you will have to take a giant leap of change in your daily activities, including how you will be experiencing Ramadan this year.
It is an irony when the fasting Daies — who claim to be the saviours of the ummah and fighters of the Deen — mainly talk and think about achieving Taqwa for themselves.
