When a beloved is returning from a journey (a wife/husband awaiting each otherís return, little children awaiting their parentsí return etc.), and it is known that the plane has left and they are on their way, older people will keep looking at their watches and little children will look up at sky in excitement and anticipation. Thereafter at the airport once again they will watch as the plane lands and wait until finally they arrive.
The coming of Ramadhaan was like that to our Prophet sallallaahu Ďalayhi wasallam and his Sahaabah! The duía asking for the rain of blessings falling in Ramadhaan was made two months in advance. Do we have this same enthusiasm? Do we await Ramadhaan with the same anticipation? What do we talk about prior to the coming of Ramadhaan? Women discuss what foods to prepare for Ramadhaan and people worry about the offers in the shops on ĎEid clothes! We need to bring change in this attitude.
