A Ramadhan Message – from Imam Anwar al-Awlaki

A Ramadhan Message

From Imam Anwar al-Awlaki

Assalamu alaykum All,

Ramadan Mubarak to all of you. We ask Allah to guide us to the best deeds and to accept from us our fasting and prayers.

Ramadan is the month of the Quran and generosity. Ibn Abbas says: “I have never seen anyone more generous than Rasullullah(saw), and he would be most generous in Ramadan when Gibril(as) would read the Quran with him”

Imam Malik used to close the books of hadith and fiqh in Ramadan and devote his time to the Quran.

Allah(swt) says: “The month of Ramadan in which the Quran was revealed.” So the revelation of the Quran began in Ramadan.

Therefore dear brothers and sisters we should focus on the Quran during the holy month.

Let’s not forget too that the month of Ramadan was a time when great battles were fought such as the battle of the criterion, the battle of Badr, and the greatest conquest, the opening of Makkah. There is also the important battle that saved the Muslims from the Mongol invasion, the battle of Ayn Jalut. So we should not forget our brothers who are carrying on this duty today from our dua and support.
Lastly, we need to keep in mind that while we are enjoying the blessing of freedom and having iftar with our families that we have thousands of brothers behind bars and only Allah knows what conditions they are in and there are thousands of families who are deprived the presence of their loved ones. Lets pray for them during this blessed month.

O Allah free our Muslim brothers from the prisons of the tyrants and shower on them and their families Your mercy. O Allah accept our good deeds and forgive us our mistakes.

wassalamu alaykum,
