The heart becomes sick, as the body becomes sick, and its remedy is al-Tawbah.It becomes rusty as a mirror becomes rusty,and its clearity is obtained by az-Zikr.It becomes naked as the body becomes naked,and its beautification is al-Taqwa.It becomes hungry and thirsty as the body becomes hungry and thirsty,and its food and drink are knowledge,love,dependance,repentance and servitude.-Ibn al- qayyim.
A PRAYER FOR THE COMING RAMADHAN
MAY the sacred moon of the coming holy month,
Appear with an unprecedented glory and grace;
To become the harbinger of a new watershed,
Which transforms mankind's values and face.
MAY the force of penitence,hunger and thirst,
Conquer the vices of revenge,rancour and greed;
To pave the way for love,affection and solicitude,
Which make this humanity an angelic creed.
MAY the showers of Divine Blessings in abundance,
Give solace to the world, and make it meek and mild
To cover the angry globe with heavenly ambiance,
Which enfolds within itself each man,woman and child
