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
Or disrespect our fellow Muslims!
Only Allah knows truly what is hidden in their hearts and ours.
It is Ramadan – live and let live.
