Poem | Ramadhān Has Come | رمـضان أقـبل

As Ramadhān approaches westlondondawah.net in association with Al-Binaa Publishing presents to you a short reminder in poetry form.

English Translation:

Ramadhān has come, O people of understanding
So welcome it after its long absence.
A year from our life has passed while we were in a state of heedlessness
So pay attention for life is like the shadow of (a fast-moving) cloud.
And prepare yourselves for patience and hardship,
For the rewards of those who have patience are beyond measure.
Allāh rewards those who fast because for His sake they held easy that which is hard.
None shall enter the Gate of Rayyān except the one who fasts.
How excellent indeed that Gate is among the other Gates!

Arabic Text:

رمـضانُ أقـبلَ يا أُولي الألبابِ
فاستَـقْـبلوه بعدَ طولِ غيـابِ

عـامٌ مضى من عمْرِنا في غفْلةٍ
فَتَـنَبَّهـوا فالعمرُ ظـلُّ سَحابِ

وتَهـيّؤوا لِـتَصَـبُّرٍ ومـشـقَّةٍ
فأجـورُ من صَبَروا بغير حسابِ

اللهُ يَجزي الصائـميـنَ لأنـهم
مِنْ أَجلِـهِ سَخِـروا بكلِّ صعابِ

لا يَدخـلُ الـريَّـانَ إلا صائـمٌ
أَكْرِمْ بـبابِ الصْـومِ في الأبوابِ
