“This month of Ramadhan,
The month of the Quran,
The month where prophet received wahi and come with al Islam
This month, which is so blessed,
So how come, I am so stressed?
Cuz I’m done, with seeing my Ummah,
So hungry and oppressed
But this month it has a rep,
And that rep is one of struggle,
And that rep is one of victory,
Check your wonderful history
You’ll see this month of Ramadhan,
Is blessed in more ways than one,
That’s why the sahabah looked for the hottest days to fast, in the blazing sun
The last ten days are approaching us,
Have we done enough?
Have we done enough?
Strive for the sake of Allah,
Nowadays we just can’t wait for Iftar
All we think about is breaking our fast,
…As if fasting is the greatest of tasks
SubhanAllah I ask that Allah make us of those that please him,
And guide and help those that really need him
We are comfortable here, but it’s a struggle overseas,
But it’s still one Ummah, so when you hurt so de we…
I ask Allah that this be the last Ramadhan without an amirul mu’mineen,
The last month before we see implementation of Allah’s deen
Lastly I ask that Allah forgive us all our sins,
And that these last days of Ramadhan are spent for the sake of him….”
Therefore proclaim openly, that which you are commanded, and turn away from Al-Mushrikun (Al-Hijr:94)

The Prophet’s Ramadhan – Month to Struggle for Islam
“It is He who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth to manifest it over all religion, although they who associate others with Allah dislike it.” 9:33
The Prophet (SAW) and the Sahaba (RA) demonstrated that Ramadhan was the month to struggle for establishing the Deen of Allah in society and state.
The Prophet SAW carried the intellectual struggle of the Qur’an in Makkah and then the practical struggle of establishing Islam in society in Madinah and then the global struggle to carry Islam to the world.
This is the very nature of this Qur’an that Muslims are reciting every day in Ramadhan — a message of struggle against all forms of jahilliyah.
This is the Prophet’s Ramadhan and this is what the Muslims today need to emulate as an Ummah.
