Eid Mubarak to All
Dr. Firdaus Kamalodeen
Allah bless all of you and your families. A warm and heartfelt Eid Mubarak to all of you and families.
Ramadan left unexpectedly and we didn't get to say goodbye. We are now left on our own without its protection.
Oh, how vulnerable we have suddenly become, once more!
Allah has given us Ramadan for one month each year and now it seems it is not enough. But one month is what is written and we must be content with that.
But sometimes a month is 30 days. Oh, how we wish this Ramadan was too -- a full 30 days!
The fact is, Ramadan makes things easy for you.
You would not think so if you are looking at it from the outside. But Allah said:
Yuridullahu Bikumul Yusra,
Wa Laa Yuridu Bikumul 'Usra.
Paraphrase as per Dr. Pasha:
"Allah wants to make things easy for you.
And he does not want to cause you hardship."
And, lo, things were indeed easy this Ramadan.
Oh, how you wish for things to continue to be easy. The way Allah made them during Ramadan!
Taqabalallahu Minna wa Minkum!
