Ramadan Reflections #11

#HalfwayThru #FinishStrong #DoRamadanRight
Ibn al-Jawzi (rA) said:
“When the race horse knows that it is nearing the end of the track, it expends all of its effort to win the race. Do not allow the race horse to be more clever than you. For certainly, deeds are judged by their conclusions. So if you didn’t do well with welcoming Ramadan then perhaps you will do better bidding it farewell.”
Ibn Tamyiya (rA) said:
“What really matters [with Allah] is the perfection of the finale, not the deficiency of the beginning.”
Hasan al-Basri (rA) said:
“Enhance your performance in what is left (of time) and you will be forgiven for that which has passed. But take special care of the time you have left because you do not know when your soul will be turned over to Allah’s Mercy.”
