Ramadhan has always been a time to reflect and repent the past. You try to double up on your good deeds struggling to cover up for all those sins you’ve purposely(or not) committed. I have always wondered why it seems so hard to revert to the better(to which we all were at some point). People ask why havent you this, why haven’t you that. Some people say, “belum sampai seru” or “belum ready lagi”. But what if God takes your life away the next day? Will you be ready to face The Day of Judgement just because you put off all those years procrastinating? One thing I know for sure, He won’t wait for us to be ready. Definitely a reminder to yours truly as well.
It’s so hard to instill in myself that life is momentary. That everything made known to me(AND you) will sooner or later disappear in a snap. We are all so used to the comfort and illusions life has brought us that we occasionally forget our main mission here. And what have we got to bring with us ‘there’? Definitely not the beaming Merce or the mega mansion. Scary ain’t it? For all there is to it, this might be our last Ramadhan. Let’s just hope the remaining of this holy month will be a fruitful one and to be made continuous, insyaAllah.
“Satan runs in the circulatory system of the son of Adam in the same way blood circulates in our system; so tighten his passages with hunger.” (Bukhari/Muslim)
