June 6th, 2017 – 7th Ramadan 1438; Los Angeles, CA

This is an absurdly short message. In fact it reads like a greeting card. You could practically do a Mad Libs version:

“On Behalf of [ORG], [SPOUSE] and I sincerely wish Muslims a peaceful and blessed Ramadan. Ramadan is a month of [IDEALS]. Most importantly, it is a time of [ACTIVITIES]. This time reminds us all of the common values of [PLATITUDES] we hold dear. Ramadan Kareem!”

anyway, I guess we should be at least thankful that it doesn’t recriminate Muslim Americans about terrorism.

Hadith of the Prophet SAW

  • When you become angry, desist from speaking ill.
  • Shall I not inform you of two things which require little effort, yet provide great reward? From among the deeds with which one meets Allah Ta’ala there are none such as these: silence and good character.
  • A man has not swallowed a mouthful more pleasing to Allah Ta’ala than that of uncontrollable anger, or a mouthful of patience in a time of hardship.

Kalam of Imam Ali ibn Talib AS

  • Some words can be more piercing than the blow of an arrow.
  • Long-windedness is the flaw of speech.
