Ramadan Challenge: #1 Halima

Oh Muslim LISTEN

Ramadan is TOMORROW

Brothers and sisters DON't Listen

Ramadan is NOT tomorrow

Argument floods in

Words of anger spreads like a wildfire

Dirty looks exchanged

All because of the moon sighting argument

Each year we bicker and fight

Divide and anger one another

But shouldn't we start this blessed month

With love, unity and forgiveness

This blessed month should pave a golden opportunity

For all

To forgive others so we may be forgiven by our Lord

To respect others

So we may respect ourselves

To appreciate our fellow Muslims

So we may appreciate our faith

This month should not be one of the many reasons wedivide ourselves

But rather a time of unity

A time for reflection

A time to ponder and contemplate

A time for fasting from all evil deeds

And embracing the good of life

A time to better ourselves

A time for reconnecting with Allah

And, a time to set our different opinions and ego aside

for the sake of Allah Ta'aal.
