Alhamduilah its the 7Th of Ramadan and alhamduilah the fasting has settled well in to the home and family members are all into the Ramadan spirit. We as a family are trying to make the most of our guest as we know on the 29th or 30th day Ramadan will leave not to return until next year and maybe we won't be alive to reap its benefits. So lot of Quran rectiation going on in different rooms at different times of the day. some translation of the Quran being read and relayed to the younger ones. Islamic knowledge quizzes while the younger ones feel the pangs of fasting. lots of helpers in the kitchen this Ramadan inshaallah it will last beyond.
There is a certain vibe in the Muslim home at this time of year that creates a peace a kinda spiritual peace that only comes when the heart is attached to Allah subhan Allah. Another blessing is the Devils are chained up this month and the gates to Paradise are open and the Gates to hell are locked!
It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “When Ramadan comes, the gates of Paradise are opened and the gates of Hell are closed, and the devils are put in chains.”
