Ramadaan Mubarak, Ramadaan Kareem - and a Freebie greeting card***

Assalaamu Alaykum and Ramadaan Mubarak (blessings) and Ramadaan Kareem to all my fellow Muslims :)

The great month for which we have been preparing for so long, Ramadhaan, is here!  The great month of Allah (S.W.T.)’s Mercy and Forgiveness. . . The month in which the gates of Hell are locked and the devils are chained. . .  The Noble month in which the Glorious Qur’an was revealed. . .
In this great month overflowing with blessings, and rewards, I make dua that Allah (S.W.T.) guides us to  seize all the opportunities we can to attain nearness to Allah (S.W.T.), to seek forgiveness from Allah (S.W.T.), to strive to attain Allah (S.W.T.) blessings and rewards.  I make dua that Allah (S.W.T.) grants us all health and strength to fast throughout this month, the means to fulfill all our obligations and the desire, ability and follow through to reaching out and assist those in need.  I make dua that Allah (S.W.T.) softens our hearts, guiding and helping us to also reach out with our hearts, visiting and showing our love and care for our family, the orphans, the elderly and the sick.
May we be of those who reflect on the significance of this month, the lessons of the Glorious Qur’an, the life of our Beloved Nabi Muhammad (SAW) and strive to increase the goodness in our characters: generosity, kindness, love, humility, Allah consciousness…
During this month, may we keep our tongues wet with the remembrance of Allah (S.W.T.) . . . May the Qur’an be our companion each day!  May our homes glow with the love and togetherness, bonded together with love for Allah (S.W.T.).  As we cleanse ourselves physically and spiritually this month, may we strive to instill in ourselves beautiful new habits to replace those with no benefit, and may these good habits flourish throughout our lives.
I make dua that Allah (S.W.T.) will remove our veils so that we may see and be truly grateful for all that Allah (S.W.T.) has blessed us with . . . family, health, homes, provisions . . . We have so much while others lack even basic needs like water and food. . . May we remember them, help them and keep them in our duas, Insha'Allah, Ameen
Enjoy this beautiful Hadith about the reward for fasting, and another dua from me to you!

I scrapped today’s beautiful Hadith and greeting using Michelle McCoy’s Doodle Bug kits, available at www.scrapbookmax.com  

I also make a special dua for the Guests of Allah (S.W.T.), especially my dear sister who will be spending Ramadhaan in the Holiest of lands, Mashallah! 
May Allah (S.W.T.) grant them a salaamat travel / safe journey, their health and strength, and the most beautiful of spiritual experiences wherever they go! May they feel Allah (S.W.T.) nearness every step of the way and may Allah (S.W.T.) shower them with the best of blessings and rewards, Insha'Allah, Ameen!
While we will surely miss them, we hold them close in dua and warm our heart knowing that they have been so GREATLY HONOURED!
May Allah (S.W.T.) grant them Umrah Maqbool and Mabroer and the acceptance of their duas,
Insha'Allah, Ameen 

May your Ramadaan be truly blessed . . .
Allah (S.W.T.)’s Forgiveness cleanse your heart and soul,
May Allah (S.W.T.)’s nearness warm your heart,
Allah (S.W.T.)’s Mercy increase your love for all that is Islam, and
Allah (S.W.T.)’s Blessings bring all kinds of richness to your life in the Dhunya & Aakhirah.

Jazaakallah Geyr to all, for the warm wishes and duas I have received!

Ramadaan Mubarak and Ramadaan Kareem
