Alhamdulillah, we’re now in the 12th day of Ramadan.. how time flies..
Btw, for yesterday’s iftar, I cooked nasi briyani with kambing masak hitam and some acar mentah. And Dzul said the mutton was yummy! Alhamdulillah, ku rafa’kan kesyukuran pada Allah. But as I was not fasting, I could taste the food while I cooked 😛 However, still I felt grateful. It’s not that often my husband says it 🙂
Hmm, 12th Ramadan.. dah second round dah..
It’s time to reflect.. what we’ve done in the first round, the first 10 days of the month.. have we done enough, especially in preparing ourselves for the final round – to seek the lailatul qadr. If we don’t we still have few nights left. InshaAllah as long as we’re still been given this life.
شَہۡرُ رَمَضَانَ ٱلَّذِىٓ أُنزِلَ فِيهِ ٱلۡقُرۡءَانُ هُدً۬ى لِّلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَـٰتٍ۬ مِّنَ ٱلۡهُدَىٰ وَٱلۡفُرۡقَانِۚ فَمَن شَہِدَ مِنكُمُ ٱلشَّہۡرَ فَلۡيَصُمۡهُۖ وَمَن ڪَانَ مَرِيضًا أَوۡ عَلَىٰ سَفَرٍ۬ فَعِدَّةٌ۬ مِّنۡ أَيَّامٍ أُخَرَۗ يُرِيدُ ٱللَّهُ بِڪُمُ ٱلۡيُسۡرَ وَلَا يُرِيدُ بِڪُمُ ٱلۡعُسۡرَ وَلِتُڪۡمِلُواْ ٱلۡعِدَّةَ وَلِتُڪَبِّرُواْ ٱللَّهَ عَلَىٰ مَا هَدَٮٰكُمۡ وَلَعَلَّڪُمۡ تَشۡكُرُونَ
The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for mankind, and clear proofs of the guidance, and the Criterion (of right and wrong). And whosoever of you is present, let him fast the month, and whosoever of you is sick or on a journey, (let him fast the same) number of other days. Allah desireth for you ease; He desireth not hardship for you; and (He desireth) that ye should complete the period, and that ye should magnify Allah for having guided you, and that peradventure ye may be thankful. (Quran S2:185)
Quran was revealed to the mankind in the month of Ramadan. As in the firman above “..and clear proofs of the guidance, and the Criterion (of right and wrong).” It is in this month we ought to learn to part ourselves from all the wrong doings, from mungkar, with the guidance of Quran, inshaAllah.
I have learnt, that to become a good muslim & mukmin.. it is not only we call for people to do the right things but also to stop them from doing maksiat. ‘Amar ma’aruf nahi mungkar’.. The latter part is the hardest role to play, but that’s what we have to do.
