Ramadan is a rare opportunity for the believer, in which all acts of piety are multiplied a thousand-fold. As Ramadan draws to a close, our consciences weigh more heavily with the thought of all the opportunities wasted in which we could have done just a little more devotion and engaged in just a little more prayer. Tonight, by the Fatimid calendar, is the last night of Ramadan and tomorrow is my final fast, with Eid al-Fitr on Tuesday. Others will observe Eid on Wednesday or even Thursday, but regardless of your reckoning, there’s very little time left indeed. Tonight I will engage in late night prayers, from nisful layl to shafa witr, and try to redeem what little barakat remains for the taking.
