Here we are saying our farewells to Ramadan, the month that we wait for every single year, everyone changes to the better during this month, everyone tries to get closer to Allah and to get back on track with his deen. We pray, fast and stay up at night to pray Qiyam. The spirit during Ramadan is so energetic those who don’t pray at all start praying, those who don’t wear hijab start wearing it, the miser starts giving charity everyone reconnects with Allah and tries to attain as many good deeds as possible.
Every Believer wishes that Ramadan lasted for the whole year instead of being here for just a single month, but that’s how Allah have ordered things, Ramadan is our second chance to fix what we broke in the previous months, now that Ramadan is gone and the shaitan(devil) is back to his manipulations and whispers try your best to stay the way you were during Ramadan, don’t let go of any habit that you adopted during Ramadan because shaitan(devil) will definitely whisper and try to make you commit sins again but don’t fall in his trap and if you do fall in his trap then repent as soon as you realize your mistake. Remember that Allah is the most forgiving and merciful don’t let the shaitan make you feel that your sin is too huge to be forgiven!
It is our human nature to make mistakes and sin, everyone is a sinner but those who repent are indeed at the right path because we never know when or where we will die, don’t put your hopes that next Ramadan you’ll repent, you might not live up to next Ramadan, don’t take your sins lightly even if seem small, because these small sins start getting bigger and bigger until you just stop feeling guilty about disobeying Allah!
Our Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Every son of Adam sins, and the best of those who sin are those who repent.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2499; classed as hasan by al-Albaani.
قال صلى الله عليه وسلم : ( كل ابن آدم خطاء وخير الخطائين التوابون ) رواه الترمذي (2499) وحسنه الألباني
Beware of the shaitan indeed he is very smart and manipulative, everyday seek refuge with Allah from the evil plans of Shaitan and your own nafs!
May Allah accept our fasts and prayers and lift our names in the record of those who have been saved from hell fire and are granted a place in paradise(الفردوس) Ameen.
