An analogy to ponder…
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
A friend of mine gave me a simple but beautiful analogy a few years ago.
See that battery charger?
See those batteries?
Those are us.
Like those batteries, we run out of charge so we need to get recharged.
And that’s what Ramadan does: it recharges our iman (faith) which had perhaps become a bit worn out. (That’s why I summarised it like this.)
إن الإيمان ليخلق في جوف أحدكم كما يخلق الثوب ، فاسألوا الله تعالى : أن يجدد الإيمان في قلوبكم
The Prophet (salallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “Iman wears out in the heart of any one of you just as garments wear out, so ask Allah to renew the faith in your hearts.” [Sahih Al-Jaami, Hadeeth No. 1590. You may see the Dorar results here.]
