Allah Ta‘ala, in His infinite mercy has provided us with a great opportunity – the blessed month of Ramadhaan. From abstaining from food, drink and relations during the day to standing in salaah at night, every aspect of this blessed month is ‘custom designed’ to assist us to enjoy some ‘me-and-Allah’ time so that we can cut off from our distractions and reconnect with our Creator.

The secret to making the most of this sacred month is for one to enter the month prepared – especially mentally – so that the moment the moon is sighted, we ‘hit the ground running’ (get off to a good start). In this regard, the aspect of having the correct mind-set and focus cannot be stressed and emphasized sufficiently. When a person’s focus is correct and they have a goal in mind, they not only make the most of the opportunity provided, but even enjoy it and take pleasure in it. Exercising is exhausting, yet certain people do it day after day and relish the activity and exertion. The reason? … They are focused on the end result and know that the effort is worth it.

The blessed month of Ramadhaan holds a very special place in the heart of every Muslim, and is eagerly anticipated by one and all. While most people are aware of the abundant blessings, special mercies and tremendous rewards that are on offer in this auspicious period, not all manage to capitalize on this opportunity and improve their relationship with their Creator during this month of mercy.  

In this regard, it is the pious servants of Allah Ta‘ala who truly understand the objective of Ramadhaan and the crucial role it plays in the life of a Muslim. They thus value every second of this blessed month and strive to gain maximum goodness and blessings from it.

In order for us to benefit in this month and make significant spiritual progress, it is vital for us to have the correct mindset so that we understand the true spirit of Ramadhaan. This booklet is a collection of various articles from the Al-Haadi newsletter of the madrasah which were written by Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas Patel Saheb (daamat barakaatuhum). It is hoped that these articles will assist in shedding light on different dimensions of the spirit of Ramadhaan.

The Spirit of Qurbaani - e-book

With the grace of Allah Ta‘ala, to a great extent the atmosphere of qurbaani is widely experienced in our country. In many communities, animals are kept and slaughtered in backyards. The children look forward to this and engage in all the work with great enthusiasm. This is something commendable and should be increased, as it will keep alive the ‘ibaadat of qurbaani for the future generations.

However, there is a great need for us to move from the mere atmosphere to achieving the true spirit of qurbaani. If this is not understood, then under the false pretence of “spirit” various laws of sharee‘ah will be violated, such as taking of selfies, intermingling, etc. This then results in this momentous ‘ibaadat becoming a mere event of entertainment and fun.

Avoiding Divine Wrath (Book)

Our most beautiful deen has given us complete guidance and bestowed us with the most perfect way of leading our lives. Among the occasions in which the guidelines of deen are most tragically neglected is the occasion of nikaah. The blessings of this great ‘ibaadah are destroyed due to an abundance of sinful activities.

This booklet is a consolidated transcript of two talks that were delivered by Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas Patel Saheb (daamat barakaatuhm) on this most pertinent topic in an effort to enlighten the Ummah of the importance of conducting our nikaahs in the simple, sunnah manner and to highlight the harms of having extravagant weddings and indulging in haraam activities.
