Ramadaan Message - Allamah Kaukab Noorani Okarvi-2014

Ramadaan Message - Allamah Kaukab Noorani Okarvi-2014


Bismil Laahir Rahmaanir Raheem
As Salaatu Was Salaamu Alaiekaa Yaa Saiyyidee Yaa Rasoolal Laah Wa 'Alaa Aalika Wa As haabika Yaa Habeebi Yaa Habeebal Laah

As Salaamu Alaiekum Wa Rahmatul Laahi Wa Barakaatuhu Wa Maghfiratuhu. 
With a small child’s hand in our own we make them write and then say, “Look how nicely it’s written!”  This example is just to explain not compare how Allaah Karaeem has the person do the work and then has the angels praise it.  By Allaah Kareem’s given ability we fast and this fast is kept in the mouth, but in who’s controls is the mouth?

It is in Allaah Kareem’s. 
In this way, the pen writes but hand is the writer. 

Who controls the hand?
The heart does.

 Whose control is the heart under? 
Allaah Kareem’s.
 When the One who controls is the most Merciful and most Compassionate then there is no feeling of any harm or loss.  It is His Divine Mercy that Allaah Kareem, Himself has us fast and then blesses us with boundless rewards.

In this auspicious month Shaietaan (Devil) is imprisoned.   There are two encourage-rs of disobedience. One is Shaietaan and the other is our nafs (arousing or exciting the senses, desires or appetites).

The big encourager of sins is imprisoned but the nafs is free.  In the month of Ramadaan it can be easily calculated how many sins are committed by the influence of Shaietaan, and how many are by our nafs.  And while fasting we are also trained on how to control ournafs.  Shaietaan makes us sin once, but continuously sinning is the simulation of our nafs.  The purification of our nafs is the actual accomplished success.

Let us all enlighten our intrinsic and extrinsic selves in this blessed month, and strive to please our Rabb.


Along with wishing you blessings on the starting of this holy month, I (Kaukab Noorani Okarvi) seek forgiveness from each and everyone for my every mistake and shortcoming.  May Allaah Kareem bless us with mercy, forgiveness and freedom from hell in this sacred and auspicious month.

Aameen!
