We pray you are all well, by the grace of Allah.
We have entered into the blessed days of Dhul Hijjah. We will reap only what we sow.
Rasulullah ﷺ teaches us that there are no days more beloved in deeds to Allah than these days. And the Day of ‘Arafa is when Allah sets most of His servants free from the Fire.
May Allah strengthen us through these days to devote as much time as we can to ‘ibada.
The daily practices of believers contains so much diverse ‘ibada to practice on and
emphasize: Qiyam al-layl, morning and evening adhkar, salawat on Rasulillah ﷺ, Qur’an, du’a, sunan salawat, duha salah, salawat in jama’a and in the masajid, dhikr after salah, siyam, sadaqa, khidma, khalwa (seclusion) time, and muraqaba (watchfulness) of Allah and our akhlaq.
Fasting during these ten days is especially meritorious. Rasulullah ﷺ said: “Fasting the day of `Arafa expiates the sins of two years: the past one and the coming one.” (Muslim)
May Allah help us to turn to Him in humility and need. Let us remember ourselves, our families, the entire Suhba family, and all Muslims, past, present and future, in our du‘a. May we find freedom from the Fire and the fire within ourselves. Amin.
