Build Your Legacy: Ramadan and Beyond
Ramadan does not come to change our schedules. It comes to change our hearts.
If the Hour starts to happen and in the hand of one of you is a palm shoot or seedling; then if he’s able to plant it before the Hour happens, then let him plant itAs-Silsilah as-Saheehah #9
To leave a legacy in essence means not to leave this temporary dunya without giving and leaving behind as much as we can. The blessed month of Ramadan came to change us, not just our schedules. It came to revive and renew our relationship with Allah, and it is our duty not to let it wither away because another Ramadan may not come for most of us. Allah says in the Holy Quran :
اِنَّ اللّٰهَ لَا يُغَيِّرُ مَا بِقَوۡمٍ حَتّٰى يُغَيِّرُوۡا مَا بِاَنۡفُسِهِمۡ
Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves.Ar-Ra’d: 11 – Translation by Saheeh International
