This Ramadan, Make Your Home the Masjid

Our Homes Are Sanctuaries

In Arabic, the word for home is also the word for sanctuary: sakan. It shares a root with the word for serenity, sakeena. This is no coincidence! Allah intended for our homes to be our sanctuaries and places of serenity. 

The masjid also serves those two purposes. So this Ramadan, do not be discouraged. Instead, know that the potential for sakeena is already present in your home. Your job is to be intentional to bring it out through your recitation, dhikr, duaa, and prayer. 

May Allah accept this Ramadan. May Allah forgive our dead who couldn’t make it to this Ramadan. It will certainly be a Ramadan we never forget.
