Ramadan = Competition!

     3019249420_872357f4b0Ramadan 1428 – 13th September 2007

Some of the Salaf used to say: 

 “Indeed Allah – the Most High – has made the month of Ramadan as a competition for His creatures, in which they may race with one another to His pleasure, by obeying Him.

Thus, one group comes first and so they prosper and another group comes last and so they fail.”

[‘Lata’if ul-Ma’arif’ of Ibn Rajab al-Hanbali]

    Jazakillahu khair for that! During this month, a lot of organisations and even sites hold contests, especially for the youth, and it is very encouraging. But there’re some who would put such contests down as irrelevant. That quote just proved them wrong!😀
