We chit chatted from one topic to another. And before I hung up, I thought that it would be nice to 'berpesan-pesan', as this is the month of Ramadhan. For among the essence of Islam is for Muslims to remind each other of good/ beneficial things. So I mentioned to K that I was listening to the radio that morning and there was a talk about Ramadhan by an ustaz. In his talk in the wee hours of the morning, he mentioned that Ramadhan is a month for the muslim ummah. I'd heard of that before, but, what does it mean?
What the ustaz said made an impact on me, it made my brain spin on how I have wasted my chances, but at the same time I was glad that I heard the talk now, in the early days of Ramadhan.
Generally, the ustaz mentioned that in Ramadhan, the month for the ummah, all prayers are answered. Amazing. MashaAllah. Allah would ask the malaikats: (among others) who have asked? who have asked for taubat? for He will listen and grant what we ask for. Really, we are such a fortunate ummah, to be so special, as to have a whole month to ask and ask and ask for whatever we want to. And He will give. We just have to believe it and be patient.
