Imam Ramadan Message

As-Salaam ‘Alaikum wa Rahmatullah dear Community,
How many beloved has left this world and died,  and they do not have any more chances to fast?
How many are sick and ill  and cannot fast or stand   for prayer at night, even they wish and will?
You  and I are very lucky to reach Ramadan… very lucky indeed!
Therefore, may Allah make  you and me  grateful to  Allah, for allowing us to reach this blessed month.
Let’s thank Allah in our statements, actions, and especially our manners.
Allah says (which means): “Say, “In the bounty of Allah and in His mercy – in that let them rejoice; it is better than what they accumulate.”.
Ramadan Mubarak,
Imam Wissam Abdul-Baki,
