What better days to do good actions than the first ten days of Dhu’l-Hijjah, which Allāh has favoured over other days. It has been authentically reported that The Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings of Allāh be upon him) said, “There are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allāh than these ten days.” They said,” Not even Jihad for the sake of Allāh?” He (Peace and Blessings of Allāh be upon him) said, “Not even jihad for the sake of Allāh, unless a man goes out himself for Jihad taking his wealth with him and does not come back with anything.” (Sahih Bukhari)

These last two days after Ramadan everytime in the daytime when I feel hungry or thirsty I stop myself from eating, because in the back of my head I still have Ramadan on my mind and it feels unnatural to eat during the day after not eating in the day for so long. Alhamdulillah we have the ability to go outside and just eat something anywhere we want and go to our fridges and eat something at any given time of the day, whether it be at 4am or at 2pm. Imagine all those kids in Gaza, Syria, Africa and all of the other oppressed and third world countries, where the children don’t get to eat for so long in their life that they must find it unnatural when they get given food. The happiness they must feel is not even close to the happiness we feel when we can eat during the day, after Ramadan passes. For them the struggle is everyday and they have no choice about it.
So please take some time out today to just say Alhamdulillah for what Allah has given, make sincere du’a for the less fortunate that their thirst and hunger may be quenched and if you can then donate to a charity that you know can make a difference inshaAllah.

Alhamdulillah, Allah s.w.t. has blessed all of us to be in this blessed month of Ramadan and he has blessed you guys to be watching this video this very moment. Now in this blessed month of Ramadan, there are three stops or there are three stations that you don’t ever want to miss and subhanAllah, this is the mercy of this blessed month that Allah s.w.t has given us these three stops or stations for this blessed month.
The first station, the first stop comes where the Prophet s.a.w. said, Whosoever does qiyam, i.e. taraweeh in the month of Ramadan, Allah s.w.t inshaAllah forgive all of his previous sins.
The second station is…Whosoever fasts in the month of Ramadan with imaan and hoping the reward from Allah s.w.t., Allah s.w.t will forgive all of his previous sins.
And the third stop or station comes which is (Arabic) whosoever does qiyaam or tahajjud and taraweeh on the night of laylatul qadr, Allah s.w.t shall forgive all his previous sins.
