Blessings of Ramadaan (Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawzee)

Posted on June 22, 2015


Ibn al-Jawzee [Rahimahullaah]:

“O my dear brother, in this month all faults and mistakes are concealed, all souls and hearts are softened, sins and burdens are forgiven, and Allah `azza wa jall relieves every sad and troubled one. He says to His angels, ‘O My Angels, look at those dry tongues, how they become moist with My remembrance.

Look at those hard eyes, how they soften and weep out of fear of Me, and look at those delicate feet planted firmly at the stations of prayer out of desire for Me!

O my dear brother, whenever you give food to others in this month for the sake of Allaah, the Lord of the heavens and the earth, you shall be raised to high ranks in the lofty grounds of Paradise, and you will be clothed with complete goodness and stripped of all sin…”
