Ramadan Reminders 2018: Day 29

DAY 29

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته،

Assalamu alaykum warahmatullah wabarakatuh,
Allah Akbar! This might be the last day! 😥😓
Train yourself this month to:-
Ask Allah to help you defeat the devil and his whispers. Ask Allah to help you be a source of happiness for your parents. Ask Allah to help you be on the correct Aqeedah and follow whatever you have been doing the whole of this month. Ask Allah to help you witness the blessings of next Ramadan! Ask Allah to accept all your deeds and make your heart sincere!
Abu Huraira reported that Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said: The supplication of every one of you is granted if he does not grow impatient and says: I supplicated but it was not granted. (Sahih Muslim)
Train yourself this month to :-
Give out Zakatul Fitr.
Ibn ’Abbas (رضي الله عنهما) narrated, ‘The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) enjoined Zakat-ul-fitr on the one who fasts (i.e. fasted during the month of Ramadan) to purify him from any indecent act or speech and for the purpose of providing food for the needy. It is accepted as Zakah for the person who pays it before the Eid prayer and it is Sadaqah (i.e. voluntary charity) for the person who pays it after the Eid prayer.’ (Related by Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah and Al-Hakim graded it as Sahih.)
What must be given is a saa’ of any kind of staple food, i.e., a saa’ of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم), which is four complete scoops as scooped up with two hands, according to al-Qaamoos etc. In modern weights this is equivalent to approximately three kilograms. If a Muslim gives a kilo of rice or some other staple food of his country, that is sufficient even if it is not one of the types mentioned in the hadeeth, according to the more correct of the two scholarly opinions. There is nothing wrong with giving the equivalent amount by weight, which is approximately three kilograms. (Majmoo’ Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn Baaz, 14/200. )
Wrap your Eid gifts and be prepared to happily enjoy your eid with every member in your family.
Last of all: Try your best to possess a positive attitude towards any encounter in your life.
Life is short! So You! Yes, you reading this:
It’s always a Brand NEW DAY! Have a blessed year ahead! Stay happy! You are the owner of your happiness!
Baaraka Allah feekum.
