Ramadan Gems: Day #6


Ibn al-Qayyim [رحمه الله] said: «فأفضل الصائمين أكثرهم ذكراً لله عز وجل في صومهم.» – “The best of those who fast are those who remember Allaah Azza Wa Jal the most in their fast.” — Al-Waabil As-Sayyib, pg. 153 


I’ve realized that a verse in the Quran will never really hit you until Allah Azwajjal puts you through a trial in your life that makes the verse resonate in a whole new way. In today’s blog post, I just wanted to share 20 of my favourite verses from the Quran. I pray that your Ramadan is productive and beneficial God Willing.

  1. الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَتَطْمَئِنُّ قُلُوبُهُم بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ ۗ أَلَا بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوبُ — “Those who believe, and whose hearts find contentment in the remembrance of Allah: for without doubt in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find contentment.” [13:28]
