LMB Ramadan Diary – 13th Roza
Prayer for the Day:
After performing ablutions (wudu): “Oh Allah, Make me among those who turn to You in repentance, and make me among those who are purified.” Ameen (Sahih Al Tirmidhi)
Share your iftaari. Pack enough food for two or even a small family if you can manage it, and go out into the streets. You are bound to find homeless and hungry people who would love to have a share from your plate.
Thought for the Day:
Don’t restrict the good that you can do to one month of the year. It’s not about how much you can do keeping your lifestyle in mind, it’s how often you do what you can that marks its significance.
