Dear Brothers, Sisters, elders and youngsters
Assalam o Alaikum WRWB,
As the holy month of Ramadhan approaches, I would like to extend my warmest wishes to our Muslim community of Waikato. May Allah SWT bless us with good health, happiness, and prosperity during this blessed month and always, Aameen.
Ramadhan is a time for reflection, self-discipline, and devotion. It is a time for us to come together as a community and renew our commitment to our Deen and Faith. It is a time for us to seek forgiveness, to offer charity, and to strengthen our relationship with Allah SWT.
In this challenging time, let us remember the teachings of Ramadhan and use this month to reflect on our blessings, to show gratitude, and to pray for the well-being of our families and Muslim as well as wider New Zealand community. Let us also remember those who are less fortunate and make every effort to help those in need.
I am writing this with a heavy heart, as I am currently recovering from illness. I ask that you please keep me in your Duas during this holy month. The power of Dua is very strong as mentioned numerous times by our beloved Prophet SAW, and I am confident that with Allah SWT’s mercy and your support, I will make a full and speedy recovery in sha Allah. I will not be able to attend Jumah this Friday, but in sha Allah by next Friday I will do my best to be back at masjid as regularly as possible.
On behalf of Waikato Muslim Association, I would like to wish you all a blessed, peaceful and rewarding Ramadhan. May Allah SWT accept our fasting, prayers, good deeds, and may He SWT grant us the strength and guidance to make the most of this holy month.
