Ramadan Challenge: #6 Halima "sinners"

Sinners turning to Allah


They abandon Islam throughout the year

Only to reconnect with it in Ramadan


Women adorn themselves in hijab

Men grow their beards

And abandon haram ways

Only for 30 days




What do they know?

These are the chants of "good" Muslims

Women who wear the hijab throughout the year

And men who strive to live in halal manners

Feel as though it is their duty to judge others

Don't frown upon her for wearing the hijab only during Ramadan

For Allah might make this month the beginning of her hijab days

Don't call him hypocrite for abandoning clubs

And coming to Masjid only for 30 days

For this might mark the birth of a new him!

Remember, we are all sinners

And therefore should not mock

Frown upon

Or disrespect our fellow Muslims!

Only Allah knows truly what is hidden in their hearts and ours.

It is Ramadan – live and let live.
