Last night, the twenty first night of the month of Ramadhan, I listened to the Munajat of Imam Ali and cried a million tears. It humbles me every time I read or listen to it. I mean, think for a moment that this is Imam Ali – the epitome of piety and spirituality, of knowledge, of bravery, humbling himself before Almighty Allah. Seeking His favor and asking for His forgiveness.
“My Master, O my Master,
You are the Giver, and I am the beggar,
and who can have mercy on the beggar except the Giver.
My Master, O My Master
You are the Authority and I am the one examined,
and who can have mercy on the one examined Except the Authority …..
“..and when the servant ( of Allah) turns to His master in the middle of the night and does Munajat, Allah will illuminate his heart..”
