    Exclamation The Best Opportunity to Change Our Lives Forever!

    The Best Opportunity to Change Our Lives Forever!


    Have you ever felt like having fresh new start again in life? Have you ever wished that all of your past sins were wiped out like you were a new born baby?

    Have you ever felt like you just have not done enough for the Hereafter and that you have an empty good deed account that needs filling?

    Have you also ever wanted to really get closer to Allah and to renew & strengthen your faith?

    Well now is that opportunity. This is the perfect opportunity for us not only to have a fresh new start again in our lives but to have our entire lifetime sins wiped away like a new born baby and to have our good deed accounts filled to the brim! Want to make up for lost time? Well there is no better opportunity than this!


    This could be our last chance!


    We should firstly thank Allah that he has given us such an amazing unique opportunity. This is a favour upon us like no other. But this my be our last chance to change. We may well not see another Ramadan. We may never get an opportunity to change ourselves for the better.

    We keep procrastinating and deceiving ourselves into thinking "I got plenty of time, I'm still only young with my whole life ahead of me". Or we want to sort our careers out first, or go Hajj or Umrah first or do this first or that first.

    But how can we guarantee that we will be alive to see tomorrow let alone next week, next month, next year or the next few decades? How many of us know of people who have passed away this year of all ages, situations and circumstances? How many of us know of Muslims who did not make it to Ramadan? Therefore how can we guarantee that we will be alive next year to see another Ramadan and have another amazing opportunity like this?


    Utter regret if we do not take this opportunity now!


    The fact is that we CANNOT afford to miss this unique opportunity. This is an opportunity for redemption. A chance to change our lives for the better forever. All of us who know we have to change and want to change then this is that opportunity. If we don't take this opportunity now then we WILL regret it forever!

    When we see what we could have had in the Hereafter we will beg Allah: "Please oh Lord I did not know, I was too consumed into the dunya (Worldly life). Please send me back so that I may worship you properly and live my life devoted to you."

    But we will be rejected because we only have this ONE chance! Once this chance is over then we will NEVER be able to get it back again. Therefore we CANNOT miss this one opportunity to change our lives forever. If we ever wanted to have a fresh start and get ALL of our sins wiped out then this is our chance.

    If we ever wanted to gain immense rewards to fill up our good deed accounts then this is our chance.

    If we ever wanted the chance to renew & strengthen our imaan (faith) and get closer to Allah then this is our chance!

    So we CANNOT afford to miss this opportunity for we may never get this chance again!


    So let us make the commitment!


    So we must make a firm commitment to change. We must look at ourselves and this life and think what is the point of chasing the worldly life when it may end any second? Will we take our possessions and hoards of wealth with us? The fact is this life compared to the Hereafter is like comparing a droplet to an ocean. There is absolutely NO comparison!

    Therefore let us at this moment cleanse ourselves and fall into prostration (Sajda) to Almighty Allah and cry and beg of him for forgiveness. Let us ask of him and I promise you he will never turn you away. He is waiting for us to turn to him so patiently. So how can we make him wait any longer. How can we risk losing this opportunity that we may NEVER get back again.

    Therefore let us repent for our past and present sins right this moment and make a firm commitment to Allah that we will devote ourselves to him and to his worship and that we will try our best to fulfil our obligations unto him and that we will try our best to do everything that pleases him and avoid anything that may anger or displease him.

    Then let us devote ourselves in worship in this blessed month and cleanse our heart and souls with the worship and remembrance of Allah and recitation of the Qur'an and glorification of our Lord. Let us control our tongues and stop or significantly limit anything which may hinder our worship such as TV, social networks such as Facebook and Twitter and anything else that may waste a precious second in this most blessed month.

    Let us worship Allah with full sincerity, hope for immense reward, forgiveness and mercy from Allah for an entire lifetime of sins and make a firm commitment that we will change ourselves for the better for the rest of the year as Ramadan is for life not just for one month.

    We must remember that our time is very short and that this may well be our very last Ramadan as it was the last Ramadan for so many who thought they would make it!

    So let us grab this opportunity with both hands! If we walk towards Allah then he will run towards us!


    May Allah enable us to make the best of this most blessed month and enable us to gain the maximum rewards an so that we may change our lives for the better FOREVER! Ameen

    ".......He giveth and spendeth (of His bounty) as He pleaseth. But the revelation that cometh to thee from Allah increaseth in most of them (kuffar) their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy.Amongst them we have placed enmity and hatred till the Day of Judgment. Every time they kindle the fire of war, Allah doth extinguish it;but they (ever) strive to do mischief on earth. And Allah loveth not those who do mischief."(5:64)

    Jazak Allah for sharing.
    “Mu'min” is more that just a title. It is to have Imaan established in the heart and testified to by the limbs.

    Re: The Best Opportunity to Change Our Lives Forever!

    Even the Catholics know the greatness of Ramadhan :

    http://www.catholicherald.co.uk/issu...catholics-too/

    The melancholy aspect of all this is that Lent pales so dismally by comparison. All the fuss we make about giving up sweets or sugar in our tea seems ridiculous when a billion Muslims aren’t even drinking water during their 30 days of abstinence. The abandonment of the Catholic discipline of abstinence from meat on Fridays (its reinstatement in England and Wales has been generally ignored) seems more misguided than ever when Muslims are exhorted to follow their Ramadan fast with abstinence on Mondays and Thursdays. The bishops’ suggestion that we should swap abstinence for good deeds of our choice, to do something positive, seems weak-willed, when Muslims accept that they are obliged to fast as well as pray and undertake acts of charity.

    Re: The Best Opportunity to Change Our Lives Forever!

    Our beloved sister Rania captured her last moments before she, her children and other residents in her flat at Grenfell tower were overtaken by the blazing fire.



    When she woke up that morning did she think she was going to die? Do any of us think that we can die any second whilst we go about our daily lives?

    Her death and that of many others around us each day should be a constant reminder to us about our inevitable death which could occur at any second. We plan our future yet tomorrow is not certain for us.

    Tonight could be Laylatul Qadr so it is the best time to change our lives and make a firm commitment to Allah that we will let go of our major sins and try our best to obey and please him from now on so that he may forgive us for all of our sins like that of a newborn baby. Make the commitment now there may not be a tomorrow!

    May Allah give our beloved sister Rania and all Muslims who died Jannatul Firdaus. Ameen

    Re: The Best Opportunity to Change Our Lives Forever!

    How to end Ramadan?


    Imagine if there was no Ramadan? We would be in permanent loss. We would have gone off the right track a long time ago with little hope. Allah in his mercy blesses us with Ramadan each and every year so we can get back on the right track again. So we can remember him and be more aware of him. So

    Many of us will be excited to partake in the festivities of the night before Eid and on Eid day. But surely the last few precious hours/minutes of this blessed month and the night before Eid day should be spent in thanking Allah for enabling us to experience this blessed month and asking Allah to forgive us for any short comings and deficiencies in our fasts during this blessed month. Most of all we must continue with the positive changes we made during this blessed month.

    So if we prayed all of our prayers then we must carry on as the prayer i our greatest obligation and the minimum we must do as Muslims. If we (the men) attended the Masjids more during this month then we must carry on attending the Masjid after Ramadan. This will continue to give us a sense of community and brotherhood that we felt during this blessed month.

    If the sister started wearing hijaab and jilbaab and stopped wearing tight clothes and putting on excessive make up and perfume, then surely she must continue doing so for Allah loves it and what is better than what Allah loves?

    If we lost our focus throughout the year to the worldly life and materialism then we must re-align our focus to that of pleasing Allah and yearning for the Hereafter.

    If we neglected our hearts and allowed it to be continuously corrupted and blackened then we must cleanse it with the remembrance of Allah and refrain from the major sins and do good deeds.

    If we neglected our Deen and did not obey Allah then we must make a firm commitment from this moment that we will try our best to obey Allah and make our focus to do everything in our lives that will please him and refrain from anything that may anger and displease him.

    What is the point of Ramadan if we leave the good we acquired and went back to your old ways? Ramadan is not just for one month but it is for life. The way to know our Ramadan was accepted is to see whether we continue the positive changes after Ramadan. So let us spend the last few hours of Ramadan and before we go to sleep tonight thanking Allah and asking of him to forgive us for any short comings and deficiencies in our fasting and to forgive us for all of our past and present sins.

    Therefore let us internalise now that we will make permanent and necessary changes to our lives from this moment on wards and focus on the Hereafter and to spend each day of our lives doing everything we can to please Allah and keep away from anything that may anger or displease him. Most of all that we will never go back to how we were before Ramadan!
