A Ramadan Poem

Ramadan, the field of cultivation for the servant has come,
to purify the hearts from corruption and vices.

Therefore, adhere to it’s rights, in word and deed,
And take it as your provision for the final return (Hereafter).

For whoever plants seeds and fails to water them,
Will wail with regret on the day of harvest.
(Taken from Ibn Rajib al-Hanbali’s book: Lataaif al-Ma’arif)
