Moon of Ramadan

O Majestic Moon,

Radiant moments from Ramadhans long ago

Inundate our faqir souls.

May your luminance assist us to brighten our pleas for

all who are suffering, mutilated, wounded, incarcerated, orphaned, homeless, abused, ill,

the ‘them’ the ‘us’ the ‘other’,

The Ummah,

To be given strength to embrace the remaining days of this blessed month

To the fullest.

O Majestic Moon,

As we observe you gently glissade in the remaining moments

May our diligence to increase,

Our Taqwa soar.

Gaining the best of favours

From our Rabb Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala

AMEEN

~~~

JUMA’AH MUBARAK!

Blessings and salutations on you, O Messenger of Allah

Blessings and salutations on you, O Prophet of Allah

Blessings and salutations on you, O Sincere Friend of Allah

Blessings and salutations on you, O Intimate Friend of Allah

Blessings and salutations on you, O Beloved of Allah

Blessings and salutations on you, O whom Allah has honoured

Blessings and salutations on you, O whom Allah has made noble

Blessings and salutations on you, O to whom Allah has imparted knowledge

Blessings and salutations on you, O whom Allah has exalted

Blessings and salutations on you, O whom Allah has well-endowed

Blessings and salutations on you, O master of Messengers

Blessings and salutations on you, O last in the line of the Prophets

Blessings and salutations on you, O leader of those who are pious

Blessings and salutations on you, O intercessor for sinners

Blessings and salutations on you, O mercy for all domains of existence

Blessings and salutations on you, O best of the creations of Allah

Blessings and salutations on you, O light of the Throne of Allah

May the blessings of Allah, and His angels, His Prophets and His Messengers,

and the bearers of His Throne, and all whom He created, rest on

our master Muhammad, on his family and all his companions

till the Day of Judgement.

Ameen!

    Salaam Dear Sisters and Brother:

    The beautiful full moon reflects the light of the sun, which is but a particle in the universe, which is but a reflection of the Infinite splendor of God.

    So that when looking at the silver light of the night lamp of the world, one can truly say:
    Alhamdulillah!

    Ya Haqq!
