Just a suggestion
Salam one & all.
I was just thinking to myself the other day about this particular narration:
The Messenger of Allah SAW was seated in a gathering with the Sahabah when he looked towards the entrance and said, “A man of Paradise is coming.” At that instance someone who seemed to be very ordinary entered the mosque where they were seated. A Sahabi was curious as to why the Prophet said this, so he followed the man to his house. This Sahabi told the man that he was a traveler and stayed as a guest. For three days the Sahabi saw nothing unusual. He did the same things that the man did and the other Sahabah did. So he finally told the man what the Prophet SAW had said and asked him what was so special about him. The man thought for a long time and said, “There might be one thing – before going to sleep every night I forgive everyone and sleep with a clean heart.”
Allah says that He will forgive people quickly if they forgive each other quickly in this life. This got me thinking and I came up with something. Since its Ramadhan (and therefore the best time to implement or do something good), plus if you ever want to change something, you should start with your own homes right? So I told my family during iftar last night that I want to start a goodnight routine where we’ll just say sorry and to forgive everyone before we go to sleep. It seems really harmless and no big deal now but I wonder how we’ll carry that out when someone is angry with the other. Hehe. Especially when its my parents! That’d be fun to watch. Heehee. ;)
So yes, things have been good & rosy at home so I don’t think it’ll be a problem. But yeah, perhaps you all should start that too, if you haven’t already and I’m the only one left behind woops.
Till again, have a blessed Ramadhan!
Oh yes, do forgive me for the times I’ve ever offended anyone.
