LMB Ramadan Diary – 18th Roza
Prayer for the Day:
For the bereaved: “May Allah Magnify your reward (for patience), and Make perfect (Accept) your bereavement, and Forgive your departed,” Ameen (An-Nawawi).
For those of us who’re missing loved ones that are no longer with us, visit their friends so the pain of the void created by their absence is alleviated and shared amongst those who loved them the most.
Thought for the Day:
It’s perfectly natural to miss the presence of loved ones: just channelize these feelings into positive energy by embracing them instead of shying away from them, and praying lots.
