Pain of Separation.

O Ramadhan, be gentle, the tears of the believers pour forth, and their hearts are anxious from the pain of separation. And why shouldn’t the tears flow from the believers upon the parting (of Ramadhan) whilst he knows not whether he shall live to see its return!

“If your sins are paining you, they need to be treated,
By raising your hands in prayer before the dark night is completed.
Of the Mercy of God, you should never despair!
For your despairing is far greater than your sins, [beware]!
His Mercy to the righteous is tremendous generosity,
But His Mercy to the sinners is unmatched nobility.”

Ibn Rajab
