Limited Days, Unlimited Nonsense, and a Verse of Warning!

أَيَّامًا مَّعْدُودَاتٍ – Ayyaamam Ma’duudaat – is the apt description for the Month of Fasting. Limited Number of Days!

So limited that you don’t know how fast its days pass until you end up saying: Allah! It is as if Ramadhaan started just now…and see these many days flew away! Subhanallaah!

Don’t Miss Ramadhaan’s First Night

🙂 Wishing all my readers RAMADHAAN MUBAARAK:)

Making the Most of Ramadhaan

As Ramadhaan is round the corner, you may come across lots of books/articles on internet about Fasting, Zakah etc.

Of all the books, I would rate this short and sweet write-up by one of the most prolific writers of modern times, late Ustadh Khurram Murad*, as No. 1 – the topmost book ever written on the subject ‘Making the Most of Ramadhaan’. 

I request all my readers to please take time to read this 34-page book well before the coming of the blessed month, Inshaa’Allah. Even if you have read this book before, no problem read it again as Reminder Benefits Muslims.  Continue reading
