Alhamdulillah, All praise goes to Allah, none other but Him. Selawat and salam goes to prophet Muhammad SAW, our beloved.
I would just like to share something I got from a tazkirah after Subuh prayer...
Ramadhan is a field for us to strengthen ourselves. There are no syaitans and this allows us to do whatever good deeds we wants to do. But our nafs never leaves us.
TAQWA is the final reward to be redeem during this holy month. After going through all the 3 phases, whoever succeeded will get TAQWA, a very important provision for us in living through the year.
Abu Hurairah has stated the meaning of TAQWA as-
'a person who have to walk along a track that are full of thorns. So obviously the person will try his/her very best to walk along the tracks avoiding the thorns.'
The picture is that the track is our life and the thorns is whatever doings that will initiate Allah's anger upon us.
So TAQWA is the feeling of sensitivity to not do what Allah hates. To avoid it like avoiding disaster.
Sayidina Ali leave a testament to define the meaning of TAQWA which is to fear Allah in all matters, to be grateful towards all of Allah's givings even if its a little, to practice Islam as a the way of life like stated in the Quran and to always prepare the best to face the life in the hereafter.
I hope that the last bits of Ramadhan can grant us the provisions of TAQWA, our needs to face the year ahead.
Recites more Quran, wake up and Qiam, ask His forgiveness and mercy and may this Ramadhan brings blessings to all!
