My brothers and sisters, as you know, we have less than two months for the month of Ramadan.
That itself is a gift of Allah subhanho wa Taala because he has gotten us so close to something so important.
It said that I'm going to give you the following example. But I think to bring it close to your mind, those of us who might have benefited from the November sales known as the Black Friday sales, many times prior to the sale, you want to buy something, your eyes are on something. And you tell yourself, you know what, it's a bit expensive. Let me wait for the sales. Be at the end of year sales. I've just given you the November sales because we've just come out of it not too long ago. But at the same time, what you need to know that preparation for you to get hold of a bargain is something that happens in your mind. You know, you want something you know, you've shifted into a
new home or you know, you need appliances or electronic gadgets or whatever else it may be. You prepare in advance, and you save up and then you wait. You wait for the day. I know in some countries and even here, when you know there is going to be a sale at a certain store where you want certain things. You make sure you're there early, and you make sure that you have the bargains. This includes your airfares, your air tickets if someone were to tell you there is a blitz sale. If someone were to tell you that you know what the airline you fly with is going to have a sale. Even if you're not planning to travel, you start scratching your head. You know you start telling
yourself maybe yeah, it's quite a cheap ticket. Let's plan maybe we might go here go there. But it was not even in your mind. Had it not been for that sale. My brothers my sisters, don't you think the month of Ramadan in which the forgiveness of Allah is literally on sale? should be given more importance Subhanallah it should be given more importance. I should be excited about the fact that Subhan Allah we are in the month of Rajab, have you noticed one thing in my few decades on Earth? I've realized that every year that is passing is actually faster than the previous one. That is the prophecy of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. I can't believe we're already at the doorstep of
the month of Ramadan. And where am I have I really improved from the previous Ramadan? Have I improved myself over the years? The answer should be yes. Even if it is an inch at a time.
