It's the time of the year when we pray that one special prayer again:
Allahumma baarik lanaa
fi Rajaba wa Shaaban
wa balighna Ramadhan
war zuqna siyamah
wa taqabbal ha minna
What can we say, time flies. This is the fifth Rajab for this blog. Pray this year, we shall embrace these three sacred months better than ever before and that we concern ourselves in becoming more taqarrub (closer) to Allah InshaAllah.
And we pray this du'a attributed to the venerable Shaykh Abdul Qadir al-Jailani;
"O unique One (Wahid), make us uniquely Yours. Deliver us from creatures and choose us for Yourself. Certify our claims with the proof of Your grace and Your mercy. Gladden our hearts and ease our affairs. Let our companionship be with You and our loneliness with those who are apart from You. Let our concerns be but one concern, namely our concern with You, and grant us nearness to You in this world and the hereafter."
