as-Salamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh
Let me begin by extending my Ramadan greetings to you and then – through you – to all the brothers and sisters whose sincere prayers, concerned thoughts and wise comments you have kindly forwarded me. May Allah reward each and everyone of you.
As for myself, then know – and all praise belongs to Allah – that I am well and enjoying Allah’s never ending blessings and I am also ever certain of His near victory.
In conclusion, I ask Allah – ‘azza wa jalla – that He increases you and all the brothers and sisters in knowledge, guidance, and His grant of success.
And I ask Allah that He renders for all of us this blessed month of Ramadan a month of His ever increasing mercy and forgiveness, and that He writes our names among those decreed by Him to be set free during this month from the prison of Hell-fire. Indeed, He is full of Bounty, Most Generous.
Your brother in Islam,
