Muslims have the opportunity to reflect without distraction in the blessed month of Ramadan, on themselves, their place in the world, and their state with Allah, glory be to Him. Shaykh Dr. Abdalqadir as-Sufi, in fulfilling the sunnah of our Noble Messenger, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, being of service to the Ummah, regularly offered his profound insights and reflections during the fast.
Eid is a time to gather with community in celebration of the completion of a Pillar of the Deen of Islam – the fast of Ramadan. Eid is also a moment for the Muslims to move forward with the renewed vigour and perspective they have gained during the month of Ramadan. Shaykh Dr. Abdalqadir as-Sufi’s ‘Eid Messages are his response to Allah’s command in Qur’an, Sura Inshirah (Ayat 7-8):
So when you have finished, work on,
and make your Lord your goal!
