The Million Dollar Question
As we are about to come to the end of another month of Ramaḍān, are we ready to answer the ‘million dollar question?’
Many Ramaḍāns have come and many Ramaḍāns have gone. Will this Ramaḍān make a difference to your life? That is the ‘million dollar question’. The whole purpose of Ramaḍān is to boost us for 11 months until the next Ramaḍān. However, past experience shows that our worship will start declining the moment ‘Eid Ṣalāh is finished.
30 days of Fasting. 30 days of regular 5 times Ṣalāh with Jamā’ah for the men. Daily 20 rakāts of Tarāwīḥ. Multiple recitations of the Holy Qur’ān. So much charity. Basically, 24/7 for 30 days constantly in the worship of The Almighty.
Then suddenly, within hours, all is forgotten. The Masjids are empty from Ẓuhr Ṣalāh on ‘Eid Day. The hijāb and jubbāh of the sisters is exchanged for such flimsy clothing that would put one to shame.
Why? What happened? Was Ramaḍān just an annual parade? A display of our religion? A show to others? No, brothers and sisters, make sure you do not fall prey to your desires again. Take account of yourself every day.
If Ramaḍān doesn’t change you, then nothing else will. Fight your desires and remain a practising Muslim 24/7/365 for the rest of your lives, not just for a month.
Please share this message far and wide with all your contacts so that all benefit.
Let this Ramaḍān be a real life changer. Remember, if Ramaḍān has not changed you, then there was definitely something wrong with your Ramaḍān.
May The Almighty make us all practicing Muslims all throughout the year for the rest of our lives until our last breath, Āmeen. May this Ramaḍān change us all for the better, Āmeen.
