As most of us know, 15 syaaban or commonly known as Nisfu Syaaban is just around the corner.
It is said that on this meritorous month ,during the night between 14th and 15th Syaaban known as Laylatul-Bara'ah (the night of freedom from fire), Allah opens up the sky and elevates every single deed of His slaves. Therefore all our prayers will insyaAllah be granted upon the Almighty's will. Amin.
Sayyidatina Aishah r.a reported that Prophet Muhammad s.a.w to have said,
"This is the night of Syaaban. Allah frees a large number of people from Fire, more than the number of the hair growing on the sheep of the tribe, Kalb. But He does not even look at a person who associates partners with Allah, or at a person who nourishes malice in his heart (against someone), or at a person who cuts off the ties of kinship, or at a man who leaves his clothes extending beyond his ankles (as a sign of pride), or at a person who disobeys his parents, or at a person who has a habit of drinking wine."
Soon, we'll be greated by the holy month of Ramadhan, insya allah. How are we going to welcome this holy month..are we ready ? I hope i am given more strength to perform my ibadah, to confide and to be closer to my Creator.
Ramadhan is not al abt air khatirah, geylang bazaar and burgernye si Ramly... it's abt spiritual goals...the reading of Quran, the tarawih , the lailatul qadr........
Let's make the most of this coming Ramadhan , before time slips thru our hands , just like the sand that slip thru the gap of our fingers.
Sabda Rasulullah s.a.w. dalam hadith riwayat At-Tarmidzi: "Pada malam pertama bulan Ramadhan, akan dibelenggu segala syaitan, ditutup segala pintu neraka dan dibuka segala pintu syurga. Kemudian datanglah seruan: Wahai orang yang menginginkan kebaikan, datanglah. Wahai orang yang mengingini kejahatan, berhentilah. Dan pada setiap malam Allah membebaskan segolongan hambanya dari api neraka."
