You’ve heard that the moon has been spotted and the new month of the Hijri calendar is beginning: Ramadan. What better way is there to start something than speaking to the One who created Time? Dr. Tahir teaches us a du’a the Companions made at the commencement of every month that can especially help us start Ramadan off on the right foot, inshaAllah.
