Ramadan

Dear Lord
Oh Lord
Glory and praise to you
Thank you for your love
In this month
This blessed month
The gates of mercy are opened
Our open enemy
Locked up

The floods of enlightenment
Will wash away all of our past mistakes

Oh Ramadan can't you tell that we've been waiting for you
Praying for a chance to see you through
Oh Ramadan how we've missed you
It seems like every obstacle we've seen has disappeared now that were with you

Oh God this precious decree
To fast and to strive all to be set free
Our desires and whims with the passing of time it seems as though we become blind
But yet in this month
The message of your beloved somehow amplified

Oh God
There is more to life
The desires of the soul
Or to barely do what's right
The lofty principles of the saints are ours to attain
In this month of Ramadan may we continuously praise his name
Leaving Ramadan renewed with hope, our sins non existent and our spirits newly awakened

Forty Hadith: Character

Prophet Muhammad (saw) has said:
"Righteousness is good character, and sin is that which wavers your heart and which you do not want people to know about"
[Muslim]

A good wife


It is reported that the wife of Imâm Sa’îd b. Al-Musayyib – Allâh have mercy on him – said:
We only ever used to speak to our husbands like you address your commanders and leaders: [we would supplicate for them when talking to them] “May Allâh keep you right!”, “May Allâh keep you well!”
Abû Nu’aym, Hilyatu Al-Awliyâ` 5:198.
After the death of his wife Umm Sâlih, Imâm Ahmad – Allâh have mercy on them, used to praise her. He once said:
In the thirty years she was with me, we never had a single word of disagreement.


Generosity

Â`ishah and Asmâ`. They had different ways of being generous. As for Â`ishah, she used to gather things, until she had a collection, then she would distribute it. As for Asmâ`, she would never keep anything until the next day.

O Son of Adam!

Son of Adam! Know that the angel of death who has been assigned to you has not ceased to pass you and move on to others, ever since you have been in this world. But it is as if he is about to pass someone else and move on to target you, so be careful and prepare for him (by correcting your deeds). And do not forget him, for he does not forget you. And know o son of Adam, if you are heedless about yourself and do not prepare, no one else will prepare for you. You must meet Allah the Mighty and Majestic, so take for yourself and do not leave it to someone else. Peace be on you. 
-Uthman b Affan, Jumuah Kutbah 

Don't be consumed with what has not yet reached you

Do not ask about what has not yet happened until it actually happens, for what has happened is enough of an occupation to worry about what has not happened. 
-Umar

May Allah be pleased with our mother

‘Urwah b. Al-Zubayr – Allah have mercy on him – said:
‘Â’ishah – Allah be pleased with her – gave seventy thousand (dirham) in charity, while her own skirt used to be patched.
‘Abdullah b. Mubârak in Al-Zuhd wa Al-Raqâ’iq Vol. 1 p588, no.705.

Only a traveler

Imam al-Shafi`i used a walking stick for which he was asked: "Why do you carry a stick when you are neither old nor ailing?" He replied: "To remember I am only a traveller in this world."

Al Waqia

When the Event inevitable cometh to pass. (1) Then will no (soul) entertain falsehood concerning its coming. (2) (Many) will it bring low, (many) will it exalt; (3) When the earth shall be shaken to its depths, (4) And the mountains shall be crumbled to atoms, (5) Becoming dust scattered abroad, (6)
