"He who experiences the unity of life sees his own self in all beings, and all being in his own self, and looks on everything with an impartial eye."

Ramadan Revelations: Day Fourteen

“Establish salah at the decline of the sun [from its meridian] until the darkness of the night and [also] the Qur’an of Fajr (dawn). Indeed, the recitation of Fajr (dawn) is ever witnessed.” 
(Surah Al-’Isra’ 17:78)

If you can make Fajr an institution in your life, set time aside for make good Fajr salah. Young men that are reading this, go make salah at the Masjid. And the days that you do, and you sit there, and you recite Qur’an a little bit, if you can dedicate that time and make that a time in your life, then you will notice the spiritual benefits, and the worldly benefits of doing that immediately.
Allah says that the Quran of Fajr, in the same ayah, no doubt about it, it is witnessed. It’s such a beautiful thing to say. The Fajr of Qur’an, the recitation of Qur’an, the prayer that you recited, that you attended, is witnessed.
The question is then witnessed by who? Not by other people that are sleeping, not by the people of heedlessness, but rather by the angels that are recording our deeds. Rather by Allah Himself, who’s making note of these slaves that are coming and leaving their sleep for Him and His word.
We pray that Allah makes us people of the Qur’an, and people that are really able to take advantages of the times that Allah offers his special assistance to us, and His special lessons to us.

Fajr Adhan. The morning call to prayer. Unbeknownst to many, Muslims pray 5 times a day. The prayer is the means for a person to connect with their Lord, the One who created and blessed each and every one of us. (for more info. on the Muslim method of praying, click this link.)  The first prayer is the pre-dawn (fajr) prayer, which for most of the year is before 5am. It is currently at 5.30 in this part of the world (London). 

People are ‘called’ to each prayer with these words, which we call the Adhan. Each call to prayer is the same, with the following words (below)-however the words ‘As salatu khayram minan nawm’ (Prayer is far greater than sleep) are only said for the morning prayer. It reminds the Muslim (the one who submits to God) that there are bigger things in life than rest and sleep, and so one must wake up-no matter how difficult it may seem-in order to achieve something greater; peace and tranquility and obedience to God. 

Above is a video of the call to the morning prayer, and below is a transcript of what is being said: 

الله أكبر ,الله أكبر

Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar (twice)

God is the greatest (or greater than all), God is the greatest,

أشهد أن لا اله إلا الله

Ash-hadu an-la ilaha illa Allah (twice)

I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah.

أشهد أن محمدا رسول الله

Ash-hadu anna Muhammadan-Rasulullah (twice)

I testify that Muhammad is the messenger (of God)

حي على الصلاة

Hayya ʿala s-salat (twice)

Come to Prayer

حي على الفلاح

Hayya ‘ala l-falah (twice)

Come to Success

الصلوة خير من النوم

As-Salatu Khayrun minan Nawm (twice)

Prayer is far greater than sleep

الله أكبر ,الله أكبر

Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar

God is the greatest, God is the greatest 

لا اله إلا الله

La ilaha illa Allah

There is none worthy of worship except Allah.

Have you ever felt that special strength after you have finished offering Salātul-Fâjr? That feeling that you have fulfilled an obligation to Allāh, that you have pleased Him through it? Subhan’Allāh. Indeed, in its silence you find that inevitable strength within you. and we pray that Allāh puts in our hearts that eagerness to always wake up in the midst of the solemnity of the morning dawn and defeat Shaitān by making wudhū to stand firm on our salāt and have that beautiful talk with Allāh, in sha Allāh and of course witness that beautiful transition of darkness to light. subhan’Allāh!May Allāh bless you all.

Game plan for last ten nights as recommended by Shaykh Abdul Nasir Jangda:
1. Pray Isha every night in the masjid 
2. Pray Fajr in the masjid every morning
3. Pray taraweeh every night
4. Make extra dua- ask for forgiveness ( اللهم إنك عفو تحب العفو فاعف عني )
5. Sit in I’tikaaf, if not for 10 days then at least for one 
Do not sleep through, do not eat through and do not waste these last ten nights.

Good morning!
¡Buenos dias!
Sabah al kheer!

"

I know of sweet moments dipped in good fortune & blessings,
Moments angels leave the heavens to share with us on earth.
I know of wishing peace on angels
& them wishing the same upon me.
I know of bends no yoga master could comprehend the tranquility of being in.
I know of being close to Allah.

Moments, where the sun dare not rise,
But the moon whispers to her about these moments
Like school girls passing notes in class.

I know of satan in chains,
I know of repentance because this time I have no devil to blame for my imperfections.

I know of church,
For 30 days.
I know of Jumua,
For 30 days.
Togetherness,
& the humility of the many with faces printed on the floor; as our sins wash down our back like a waterfall.
I know of the perfect song.
It’s “ameen” in congregation.
It’s Allahu Akbar in congregation.
It’s as salaam walaikum in congregation.

I know of feeding my soul while my body is famished,
I know of 10 nights where heavens gates screams the names of my family.
I don’t know of the night of power,
But I look for it like a orphan searching for a forever home.

I know of suhoor,
Of fajr,
Of iftar,
Of taraweeh,
I know of Ramadan.
