Nights of Power: Short Tales of Inspiration.
Ramadhaan is the best and most blessed of months, one in which we challenge ourselves to strive and improve in ‘ebaadah, emaan, and akhlaaq: an emotional month of soft hearts and tears of taqwa. Every Ramadhaan is a month of personal challenges, spiritual growth, learning experiences, and beautiful memories etched into our very hearts.
Now, MuslimMatters wants YOU to share a particularly poignant Ramadan moment with us. Make us laugh, make us cry, make us bow our heads in awe at the Mercy and Might of Allah ‘azza wa jal – in 1000 words or less!
