This Ramadan

I wrote ‘This Ramadan’ inspired by, and with special love for, members of Muslimah Bloggers, masha’Allah.

 

This Ramadan

(The Muffin Man)

 

Oh, will you join this Ramadan, this Ramadan, this Ramadan?

Will you join this Ramadan and track the moon and sun?

Oh yes, we’ll join this Ramadan, this Ramadan, this Ramadan.

Yes, we’ll join this Ramadan, we’ll feel the sense of One.

 

Oh, will you fast this Ramadan, this Ramadan, this Ramadan?

Will you fast this Ramadan with folk around the earth?

Oh yes, we’ll fast this Ramadan, this Ramadan, this Ramadan.

Yes, we’ll fast this Ramadan, we know Allah’s great worth.

 

Oh will you thank this Ramadan, this Ramadan, this Ramadan?

Will you thank this Ramadan and let sweet tears o’er flow?

Oh yes, we’ll thank this Ramadan, this Ramadan, this Ramadan.

Yes, we’ll thank this Ramadan, and gratefully we’ll grow.

 

Oh, will you ask this Ramadan, this Ramadan, this Ramadan?

Will you ask this Ramadan in prayer as you prostrate?

Oh yes, we’ll ask this Ramadan, this Ramadan, this Ramadan.

Yes, we’ll ask this Ramadan, to keep being guided straight.

 

Oh will you search this Ramadan, this Ramadan, this Ramadan?

Will you search this Ramadan for mercy in the night?

Oh yes, we’ll search this Ramadan, this Ramadan, this Ramadan.

Yes, we’ll search this Ramadan, for seen and unseen light.

 

Oh, will you change this Ramadan, this Ramadan, this Ramadan?

Will you change this Ramadan and leave your sins behind?

Oh yes, we’ll change this Ramadan, this Ramadan, this Ramadan.

Yes, we’ll change this Ramadan, with small ways to be kind.

 

Oh, will you say ‘insha’Allah’, ‘insha’Allah’, ‘insha’Allah’,

Will you say ‘insha’Allah’, it’s by Allah’s decree?

Oh yes, we’ll say ‘insha’Allah’, ‘insha’Allah’, ‘insha’Allah’.

Yes we say insha’Allah, none wills our fate but He.

      Alhamdulillah, I love that the content came from what sisters hold dear through experience, masha’Allah. May Allah guide today’s children to grow in love for Ramadan and for worshipping Allah throughout their time here, ameen.

      May Allah bless you. Alhamdulillah. I didn’t think I would be able to blog this week (and was only able to post a rhyme without reflections) but Allah is the Most Merciful and Best of Planners, subhanAllah.
