Ramadan Reminders 2018: Day 17

DAY 17

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته،

Assalamu alaykum warahmatullah wabarakatuh,
Train yourself this month to:-
Always ask Allah to die in obedience to Him. We need to remember that we will die one day. Many of us dislike this topic, but it’s a fact.
Look at the former generations; death was never scary to them— it was the state in which they would die that they had a mixture of hope and fear for. They had hopes in Allah’s mercy and fear of His wrath.
Let’s regularly recite the following dua everytime we make sujood:

(تَوَفَّنِي مُسْلِمًا وَأَلْحِقْنِي بِالصَّالِحِينَ)

Tawaffani musliman wa’alhiqni bissaaliheen.
“Cause me to die as a Muslim (the one submitting to Your Will), and join me with the righteous.”
[Surat Yusuf 101]
Anas ibn Maalik (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “When Allaah wills good for His slave, He uses him.” They said, “How does He use him?” He said, “He guides him to do good deeds before he dies.” (Narrated by Imam Ahmad, 11625; al-Tirmidhi, 2142; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah, 1334.)
Train yourself this month to :-
Always recite Quran at Fajr.
And recite the Quran in the early dawn (i.e. the morning prayer).Verily, the recitation of the Quran in the early dawn is ever witnessed (attended by the angels in charge of mankind of the day and the night). (17:78)
Yes, you do recite it the whole Ramadan, and yes, you can recite it at any time; but our aim is to make a revolution in our lives. We need change! So make it a routine that you always recite at Fajr, even as little as five verses.
Baaraka Allah feekum.
