May Allah make this Ramadan a source of all kinds of worldly and other worldly blessings for all of you and your families.
And to all of us and our families too, whatever the difference.
And to the entire Khalq of Allah, which I somehow believe is part of my family too: Allah’s entire creation.
It is worrying about the world of Allah — Allah’s Khalq — that keeps me up at night. And rings torrents of pain and grief out of my eyes during the day.
As I watch helplessly Allah’s world burn and smolder right before our eyes, and writhe and cry in agony and torment, as we, the Good Muslims, go about our business and our “worldly concerns” — jobs, education, family, business, profession, vacation and everything else — with perfect equanimity and indifference.
So, what can I do but to say: May we all be better Muslims this Ramadan than we have been in all previous Ramadans and in all other months and days.
