Allah's servants!

Fear Allah with genuine fear, and remember that you will be brought before Him one day when the eyes will freeze:

{The day the man will remember what he has striven for} [An-Naazi' 35(The angels that pluck the souls):].

{The day when the man will flee from his brother, his mother, his father, his companion and his children, for each of them will have his own day Case to occupy it} [Abasa: 34-37].

O Muslims!

Farewell Ramadan
Farewell Ramadan

To say farewell is sad, and the separation is painful, because it corresponds to the distance of the beloved being, at its departure, at the end of the rejoicing next to Him and shelter under his vast shadow. And your month will soon go away and end after the believing souls and the high determinations have lived in a vast field of blessings and a magnificent field for Competition in the performance of good works. During this month the doors and paths of the good were close and easy to reach; And if the feelings of the Muslim at the moment of saying goodbye in the month of Ramadan are covered by regrets and his heart is tight because of the separation of this blessed month, it is because He does not know if he will arrive in the month of Ramadan next? Or will death prevent him from fulfilling his wishes? And also, because he does not know if his actions have been accepted during this month, and then he will be among those who have succeeded, or has his actions been rejected , And then he will be among the losers? (Farewell Ramadan)

This is why it is not surprising that the Imam and worshiper, Abdul-Aziz ibn Abi Rawwaad (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

- "I met with them when they made a lot of attempt in doing the good work, and after they had done it, they were worried because they did not know if their Were accepted or not? ".

And it is reported from the prince of the believers Ali ibn Abi Taalib (may Allah be pleased with him) that he said the last night of the month of Ramadan:

"I would have prefered to know the one among us whose works are accepted in order to congratulate him, and whoever is deprived of it in order to comfort him".

Therefore, every Muslim must, while he is farewell in the month of Ramadan, implore his Lord the Most High (glorified) and ask him to accept his throne, his prayers fulfilled At night, and the good works he has done, in order to imitate the pious predecessors of this community about which some have said:

"They made demands for six months to ask them to reach the month of Ramadan, and then they asked Allah (may He be exalted) for six months to ask Him to accept their good works ".

Just as every Muslim has to finish the month by repenting to Allah (exalted) and asking Him for forgiveness because of his neglect, the shock and the ostentation Lang

- "is the seal of all good deeds: it is with forgiveness that prayer, pilgrimage and prayers completed at night are completed, as the assemblies are completed If these assemblies are a reminder of Allah, forgiveness will be like the seal on them, and if these gatherings are an amusement, a distraction and what is false, then forgiveness will be a At the expiation of these assemblies, it is best to complete the month of Ramadan with forgiveness in order to fill the gaps.

The well-guided caliph Omar ibn Abdul-Aziz (may Allah be merciful to him) wrote a letter to the inhabitants of the countries in which he ordered them to complete the month of Ramadan by asking Allaah for forgiveness and giving Zakat Al-Fitr, for just as Zakat Al-Fitr is a purification of distractions and obscene remarks for the jeweler, well, forgiveness also repairs the [deficiencies] that occur in the Jea "does".

And he said in his letter (may Allah be pleased with him) that he wrote to the inhabitants of the land: - "Say as your father Adam (peace be upon him) said: Our Lord, we have done wrong to ourselves. And if You do not forgive us and do not make us mercy, we will most certainly be among the losers "} [Al-A'raaf: 23].

And say as Noah (peace be upon him) said: {"And if You do not forgive me and do not make me mercy, I will be among the losers"} [Houd: 47]. And say as Prophet Abraham (may the peace of Almighty Allah be upon him) said: {"And it is of Him that I covet the forgiveness of my sins on the Day of Reward."} [The Poets: 82]. And say, as Jonah (may peace be upon him) said: {"No divinity except You, I have been truly of the unjust"} [The Prophets: 87].

The companion Abu Hurayra (may Almighty Allah be pleased with him) said:

- "The mediocrity penetrate the skull, and the forgiveness repays it [the rapier], therefore, the one who can come with a raped celestial [repaired] ©], that he do it ".

And the Muslim whom Allah has honored by making him reach this month's Eve and his prayers, must continue to follow the path of the month of Ramadan, taking the firm decision to abandon the Allah permitted him to give up during this month, and to take advantage of opportunities to do good works that Allah (may He be exalted) has facilitated His servants after the month Of Ramadan; For if the month of Ramadan is over, the opportunity to come closer to Him (be glorified) with the adoration of the soul is not finished, but on the contrary it is easy for him To whom Allah will have facilitated; There is the day of the six days of the month of Chawwaal, whose reward corresponds to the thirst of all life as the prophet ((may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) said, and this in The hadith narrated by Muslim in his collection of authentic Hadiths, according to Abu Ayub al-Ansari (may Allah be pleased with him), the Messenger of Allah (may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) said :

(Whoever eats the month of Ramadan, and then follows it through six days of the month of Chawwaal, it is as if he will have spent his whole life).

And the month of the month of Muharam is the best of the days after the month of Ramadan, as the prophet (may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) said in the hadith narrated by Muslim.
