Question: [O] noble Shaykh, what are your words [of advice] as we welcome the middle ten days of the blessed [month] of Ramadhaan?

Response: I ask Allaah to grant us the towfeeq to continue upon righteous actions, and to make all the days of this month of ours to be [full] of good and blessings. So the middle ten [days] are as the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

«The beginning of it is mercy, and the middle of it is forgiveness…»

So we ask Allaah to forgive our errors, and to overlook our lapses, and to grant us the towfeeq to be thankful for His blessings and [the towfeeq] to worship Him as He is deserving, and to rectify the affairs of our leaders, and to guide them to all that is good.
