The Legacy of Ramadan - Eid ul Fitr Khutbah 1438/2017

Check this out on Chirbit

Ever since the Quran was revealed to humanity over 1400 years ago, Ramadan has been defined as a season of change. Generations of Muslims, inspired by the teachings of this book, reformed themselves and cultivated a relationship with the Creator in this blessed month. Today on Eid al Fitr, we have a responsibility to recommit ourselves to the standard that the Quran inspires us to attain. Now that we have completed Ramadan, let's honor it's legacy by holding fast to the principles of God-consciousness (taqwa), patience, generosity, and gratitude moving forward. Don't ever doubt that Allah can change us and help us fulfill our potential to the fullest.

Abu Dharr reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said,  
“Allah Almighty says: Whoever comes with a good deed will have the reward of ten like it and even more. Whoever comes with an evil deed will be recompensed for one evil deed like it or he will be forgiven. Whoever draws close to me by the length of a hand, I will draw close to him by the length of an arm. Whoever draws close to me the by length of an arm, I will draw close to him by the length of a fathom. Whoever comes to me walking, I will come to him running. And whoever meets me with enough sins to fill the earth, not associating any idols with me, I will meet him with as much forgiveness.”
