Farewell to the month of Ramadhan
As we approach the end of this awesome month, it’s good to reflect over the dua bidding farewell to Ramadhan by Imam Zaynul Abideen (pbuh) in Sahifa Sajjadiyya. Here are some extracts…….
“We bid farewell to it with the farewell of one whose parting hurts us, whose leaving fills us with sadness and loneliness….
Peace be upon you! O best of months in days and hour….O month in which expectations come near and good works were many… O Month which is invaluable and whose absence will torment us….O month who brought comfort in coming and anguish in leaving…..
Peace be upon you! How many sins you erased and how many faults you covered….. How many the kinds of faults you covered over…..How much evil was turned away from us through you and how much good flowed upon us because of you….
Peace be upon you! How much we craved you yesterday! How intensely we shall yearn for you tomorrow…..”
