In the Name of Allah the most gracious merciful who perfected this universe in 6 Ayyam. And peace and blessings on the last and final Messenger Mohammed saw, the Rehmatullilalmeen, "We have sent not thee but as a mercy to the whole Worlds". Aslamalaikum. My dear brothers and sisters Ramadan is on our way right? Are you guys prepared? , our great Sahaba were used to wait for the Ramadan to come right from 6 months prior to it. Such enthusiasm and vigour and love for the deen, that my words cannot express however I turn the pages of adjectives. Allah said in Quran in Surah Al Baqara verse 183
O you who believe! Observing As-Saum (the fasting) is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become Al-Muttaqun (the pious - see V. 2:2). PICKTHALL O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you, even as it was prescribed for those before you, that ye may ward off (evil); SAHIH INTERNATIONAL O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous - SHAKIR O you who believe! fasting is prescribed for you, as it was prescribed for those before you, so that you may guard (against evil). YUSUF ALI O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may (learn) self-restraint,- MUFTI TAQI USMANI O you who believe, the fasts have been enjoined upon you as they were enjoined upon those before you, so that you may be God-fearing, ABDUL HALEEM You who believe, fasting is prescribed for you, as it was prescribed for those before you, so that you may be mindful of God. ABUL ALA MAUDUDI(WITH TAFSIR) (2:183) Believers! Fasting is enjoined upon you, as it was enjoined upon those before you, that you become God-fearing.3 DR. MUSTAFA KHATTAB, THE CLEAR QURAN O believers! Fasting is prescribed for you—as it was for those before you—so perhaps you will become mindful ˹of Allah˺.
The main aim besides the myriad of blessings and Rehmah is to Attain Taqwa (to be of the "Muttaqoon". It is of paramount significance that sadly most Muslims are ignorant of. It is not just that the fact of abstaining from food and water and lavishly davoring the Iftar, it is realization of the core values that Humans have been created to Worship Allah alone. Can you be in rebellion to the Almighty words and His Rasool Saw? You will not! as one the Salafus Saleheen said it is like beating your head on the wall, smart are those who realize the Almighty Creator. Therefore Allah ( swt ) said that you may become God conscious , fearing (out of love) from sins, other implications of the Word Taqwa.
Allah said in the Quran in Surah tauba that He has prapared Paradise for the people of Taqwa. So if through your fasting your Taqwa hasn't been developed sadly i can say that eid is not for you. Eid is for those who cried in most glorified night ie Shabe Qadr in this night was revealed the Quran ie in Ramadan, it is the night of the Decree. Eid is for those who prayed salah with the Khalis Niyah. To whom we are fooling? Are we not fools? When your gaze does not lower down upon seeing a Gair MEHRAM? When you don't leave your bed for Namaz (on time)? When you belittle the Kabirah gunah? Will you then be called the People of Taqwa.
Taqwa as explained by a sahabi (RA) upon inquiring is walking on thorny roads without being pricked not in a least bit. These thorns are FITNA and gunah. Will you be bruised with it?
Wallahi I see people getting enthusiastic the moment shaitan get release for the "EID RELEASE", where is the Taqwa? The music which is haram Allah's Apostle saw said Mausiki (music) is haram "Among my ummah there will certainly be people who permit zinaa, silk, alcohol and musical instruments…” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari ta’leeqan, no. 5590; narrated as mawsool by al-Tabaraani and al-Bayhaqi. See al-Silsilah al-Saheehah by al-Albaani, 91). That is so true nowadays. Notice how music is linked with Zina May Allah safe guard us from music, Zina and silk (for men), alcohol. It is indeed the Sharr of shaitaan to lead away from the path of Allah ultimately to shirk. Shaitaan has its own way most cunning and dubious entity it is, it slowly whispers and create Waswas. Allah said in Quran don't follow the path or the treads of Shaitaan it would lead ultimately to the tormenting insults in this world and in the Hereafter. May Allah grant us Hidayat ameen.
Therefore Allah swt has designed for us this month in which you feed your soul with Zirk and askaar of The Creator. Its a month to prepare you to be a Momin and mominah for the rest of the months. To be of Muttaqoon to be of the people of jannah, so that you can stand among the likes of Abu Bakr siddidue Umar, Uthmaan (may Allah be please with them all). Don't you want to be in the company oh my sisters of daughter of Muhammad pbuh, Fatima Az Zehra. taste the spirituality. The Mercy and rehma is manifold here and unlucky are those who idly pass this month and indeed such a ignoble he/she will be. Nabi saw has cursed those individual who are much able and delibaretly choose not to do justice to this month of Quran. How will he/she be guided If his/her own efforts are zero? It's a month to better yourself and put efforts to feeding your soul with goodness.
It seems in the fast moving, dynamic and techno-filled age, waking up for work is difficult, ‘let alone Fajr’ as some would put it. The idea that we have to start our day, with the prayer of Fajr which is constantly changing, seems somewhat burdening. As humans we like to be in control, so when we set our alarm in the morning for a work routine, that alarm can stay the same. But for Fajr the matter is different.
In simpler terms, we are objectifying it in our heads, and turning into an exercise that we want to avoid. However if you take on board the decision to look at the prayer as a spiritual exercise, then you will see it’s benefits not only to the soul but even on our day to day lives.
In the holy Quran, it states that;
“Those who believe and do deeds of righteousness, and establish regular prayers and regular charity — they will have their reward with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.” — Surah al-Baqarah (Holy Quran, 2:277) 5 benefits of waking up for the fajr prayer:
1) It is the sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWS)
Prayer as a whole is one of the Five Pillars of Islam, holding a place of such importance and benefit that the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) stated that it is the observance of daily prayers that delineates belief from disbelief. So it is a essential part of our faith.
2) Prayer provides us with guidance and support from Allah
The word Fajr means “dawn” in Arabic, and comes from the same root word as infijar, which means “to explode” or “to burst forth”, referring to the light of the sun as it erupts into the darkness of night and illuminates the world, replacing darkness with light, vision and clarity. It is the light of the sun that sustains all life on the planet, enables and causes all things to grow, and provides warmth and comfort, safety and security to humanity. In the same way, the Fajr prayer provides light and guidance, strength and support, to the human soul and heart.
3) Starting our day with fajr invites positive energy into our lives
Fajr prayer in Islam ensures that we begin the day with light and with life. This equates to positive energy and the presence of God’s angels. The early morning sets the tone and energy for the entire day, and by beginning the day in the best possible way, in prayer and meditation, this spiritual practice will bless your entire day with barakah and noor, blessings and light.
4) Fajr teaches us the importance of time
It teaches you that time is precious. Therefore, we need to use it well and structure our day and make use of it. The prayers are in specified times during the day, to bless you and to keep you grounded. We are here in the world to worship Allah swt. And that doesn’t mean that we can’t live a good life either. It is about living a balanced lifestyle.
5) Prayer cleanses the soul
The importance of prayer is conveyed constantly in the Quran and was also stressed by the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh): “Know that among your duties, prayer is foremost”. Don’t forget what’s important in this life. Prayer really is one of the most beautiful acts and cleanses the soul and brings about happiness and contentment.
Prayer (and Fajr specifically) really is a blessing in disguise.
