Man is attacked by two main things which causes him or her to deviate from the path of Truth in this world; they being the whispers of the Shayateen and desires.
To Allaah belongs the loftiest attributes, Who out of His divine wisdom removed both in the month of Ramadhan so that we may worship Him to the best of our abilities; Shaytan was chained up so he couldn’t whisper into the breasts of Man as much, and we abstained from food and water so our desires were weakened. No wonder why the Masajid were filled day and night with servants of Ar Rahman.
The essence and beauty of Ramadhan could truly be recognised when Eid day arrived, as Shaytan was released and young girls and boys had full meals to charge their desires; cars were hired, freemixing was widespread and Masajid only full for the Eid and Jumu’a Prayers. For a full 30 days we worship Allaah, and then on Eid we transgress all bounds? It is evident this Month was merely a torturing and starving of the body for some.
Scholars mention one of the signs of our actions being accepted in Ramadhan is that we continue them after the blessed Month…What follows below is a short piece of advice to help us continue our good actions, we ask Allaah to grant us Tawfiq to worship Him with excellence. Ameen.
