How fast time flies!
It's once again the month of Rejab. That indicates that there's 2 more months before the start of the fasting month, Ramadhan.
I welcome Rejab with open arms. InsyaAllah life will take a turn for the better. We will always be tested, and particularly so in these important months before syaitan are chained up during Ramadhan. I know, I've gone through much during Rejab and Syaaban every year since my reversion to Islam. However, the tests that we face will also bring us closer to Allah, as we discover new ways to communicate with Him and gain new knowledge in the process.
I wish you all the best in your learning process. May Allah swt keep you safe from harm, strong in iman and forever striving to be a better Muslim/
By the way, please don't believe too much about the myths of Rejab, as the chain mail is being passed around without the senders checking for its authenticity.
Remember everything you do including fasting during Rejab, do it sincerely for the sake of Allah, because you love Allah and Rasulullah saw, and want to gain His blessings [keredhaan]. Please check your intention when you fast. Do not to fast for reward - Islam is not about bargaining; we shouldn't think along this line - if I do this, I get that. If we think along this line... do a thing for Allah's reward, then we are no better than the kufur. Just ask yourself - if there's no reward for fasting during Rejab, would I fast? And why would I fast?
Ya Allah, may You keep us strong in faith during this testing month of Rejab. Help us from being fooled by the beauty of this temporary life and help us to prepare spiritually, mentally, physically and emotionally for the coming month of Ramadhan. Thank you for all Your blessings. Ameen.
