MUHARRAM IS A HOLY MONTH
Alhamdulillah. Astargfirullah. Astargfirullahal azim wa atubu ilaih. We’re asking forgiveness from our Lord Allah swt, for the sake of this New Year that we have entered. Watch yourself. We should be busy with our own selves, to check ourselves to see what is the level of the faith that we’re having.
Is that the level of the faith that you’re having that as soon as somebody is touching you with a needle to your ego, you’re becoming worse than any wild creature? That is not faith that time. That kind of faith, Yazid had it too. That kind of faith, Firaun had it too.
This is a Holy month. If you are making intention, ‘Yes, ya Rabbi, this month is a holy month. It is a Holy days in Your presence. It is important. I am intending to show importance to these days, to these months. Maybe, I am intending to fast a couple of days more, extra.’ Which on the 9th, 10th, 11th, we should make intention to fast Muharram. If you want to do it more, it’s more better. More blessings to you.
So if you are keeping it sincerely and strictly, insyaAllah ar-Rahman, we will past from that test and we live comfortable life in dunya and we pass clean from this world.
So many is saying, ‘I hope I die, and I am okay and I can rest.’
If you didn’t find that peace in dunya, you think you are going to find it in the grave, to say, ‘I hope I’ll die and rest peacefully.’ Hmm? That’s enough sign showing that you are in trouble already.
Sit, think, reflect and ask yourself, ‘why this is happening to me. Am I being a good servant to Allah swt? That’s why it’s happening to me?’ So watch. Calculate yourself. Look at what you are doing. Day and night you have to watch every word that you are saying.
So, this month insyaAllah, it will give blessings and better days for believers. It is trouble and problem to unbelievers. It is trouble and problem to those people that they are not living according to the teachings and the lifestyle of the Holy Prophet (asws). You can call yourself much as Muslims you want. It’s okay. If you are not following his way, you are in trouble.
