    Regret for Wasting Ramadan so far!!!

    About one-third of Ramadan has passed and there are two-thirds remaining.

    Although people may differ regarding the third that has passed, there should be only one type of person in the remaining two thirds: the person who is regretful of his negligence and conscious of his shortcomings.

    Regardless of one's eagerness to do good deeds, each one of us is guilty of negligence to a certain extent, and thus, one should be determined to make up for the time he has wasted and strive harder.

    --- Even though the first third may have been wasted, do not feel despair. Instead, wake up and say that what is to follow will be better, by the permission of Allah The Almighty.

    So strive and work as hard as possible for we do not know if this will be our last Ramadan or not!

    Regardless of how sinful we are or whether we pray or even fast what matters is that we make a firm intention that we will change for the better and repent for our past and present sins. This blessed month is the best opportunity we will ever get to change our lives for the better!

    So let us not wait for tomorrow but open our hearts to Allah and cry and beg of him to forgive us and guide us to the straight path. Then we must strive to better ourselves.

    So let us make firm intention that we will do everything we can to get closer to Allah and spend every aspect of our lives to please him and refrain from anything that may anger or displease him. For if we waste this opportunity and die then Allah will ask us did we not get any opportunities to change? Dud we not have chance after chance? How many more chances do we need until death takes us?

    We cannot afford to miss out on this most valuable opportunity. Otherwise we will be in utter regret FOREVER!!!

                      Re: Regret for Wasting Ramadan so far!!!

                      We are now half Way through Ramadan and many of us are regrettful of what has passed without doing many good deeds. But fear not there is still time. A Muslim continues to strive until the end!

                      The best of days and nights are yet to come. The first of the blessed 10 nights begins this Saturday from Maghrib and the first day on Sunday from Fajr:

                      Ibn al-Jawzi said: "When the race horse knows that it is nearing the end of the track it exerts all of its effort to win the race. Do not allow the race horse to be more clever than you. For verily, deeds are judged by their conclusions. So if you didn't do well with welcoming Ramadan then perhaps you will do better bidding it farewell."

                      Ibn Taymiyyah said: "The lesson lies in perfection of the conclusion of a thing, not in the shortcomings of the beginning of it."

                      Hasan al-Basri said: "Improve your performance in what is left (of time) and you will be forgiven for that which has already passed. So take special care of the time you have left because you do not know when your soul will be turned over to Allah’s Mercy.”

                      So let us learn from what has passed and make the best of the present for any secind may be our last and we may not see another Ramadan!

                            Please also remember me and my family in your dua's. These last 10 days and nights are so precious that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) cursed thoswe who do not gain forgiveness in them. So how can we not beg of Allah and cry unto him for forgiveness during these blessed days and nights? How can we waste our porecious time on useless pursuits when forgiveness is waiting for us? There is no doubt we will be forever regretful if we do not do our best to change our ways and gain forgivness for the past and present.

                            May Allah enable us to make the best of these truly precious days and nights. Ameen

                              Of course InshaaAllah and please keep me and my families in your duas too.

                              That's very scary. I hope I'm doing enough to earn His mercy. Ameen.
