“what’s Next After Ramadan???

22 Jul

“WHAT’S NEXT AFTER RAMADAN?
I beseech Almighty Allah for protection
against the chained one in Ramadan,
Sheiton(devil) and I begin with the
exalted names of Allah Subhana wataala.
May the peace and blessings in all
ramifications shower upon the noble soul
of prophet Muhammad (saw) and the
generality of Muslim Ummah.
After this…
Obedient servant of Allah, Assalamun
Aleikum Warahmotullahi Wabarakatuhu
Our topic of today will centre upon
“WHAT’S NEXT AFTER RAMADAN
“The thirst have gone, the body is
watered and cool and the reward is
established by the grace of Allah”.
Known to individuals and all, you have
strived so hard to carryout your religious
responsibilities in the just concluded
Ramadan. You fasted, prayed fervently,
observed solat on time and nawafil, did
good deeds even if it is an atom weight,
some secluded and rounded it off with
zakâtu’l fitr.
These are, no doubt, pleased Allah as you
look forward to receiving His blessings.
With all you have strived for, with
foodless days and sleepless nights you
had had, why do you think going back to
your old ways is the right thing?
The month of Ramadan came to cleanse
you from evils and sins;
“A Ramadan to another is an expiation of
whatever comes between them” that is
Allah’s promise which you wish to receive
from Him.
Now that you are cleansed from your sins,
deviating from the halal way after
Ramadan is not the right thing and its a
direct way to loosing in Allah’s promise.
You never can tell when you will leave
this dunya(world), you never can tell
whether you are a living dead or not, you
never can tell whether the next Ramadan
will meet you alive or not. Why not live
your life as if you will die tomorrow.
The Messenger of Allah (S.A.W) said:
“Live your life as if you are a stranger or a
traveller, if the night falls with you, do not
expect the dawn, if the dawn comes with
you, do not expect the dusk”.
In view of the above, live every moment
of your life as if you are in the Month of
Ramadan, take your eyes away from
haram(forbidden), shut your mouth afar
the haram and every other parts of you
from haram like you did during Ramadan.
That is a perfect way of life that pleases
Allah.
The below verse of the exalted words of
Allah will tell you what the scenario of
Ramadan looks like:
“Muhammad (SAW) is no more than a
Messenger, and indeed (many)
Messengers have passed away before
him. If he dies or is killed, will you then
turn back on your heels (as disbelievers)?
And he who turns back on his heels, not
the least harm will he do to Allah, and
Allah will give reward to those who are
grateful” Q3:144.
Analogically, this verse implies the fact
that, whoever worships Allah, follows
what He commands and abstains from
what He forbids all because it is what we
are created for not because its Ramadan,
for ramadan have gone, will you then not
worship your creator anymore, will you
now start to disobey him?
Don’t be the Muslims of just Ramadan,
even though it’s coming back next year
but can you assure yourself a long live?
NO!
The question of “What is next after
Ramadan?” is rhetoric. Nothing is next
after Ramadan than what you did in it. If
you spent it well, continue with it, if you
didn’t, adjust today, tomorrow might be
the end of your day.
Continue on your good deeds
Seal your Ramadan with Sitta Shawwal(6
fast of Shawwal). Prophet sallallaahu
‘alayhi wasallam said: “Whoever fasts
Ramadaan and follows it with 6 days
fasting of Shawwaal, it will be as if he
fasted for a whole year” Sahiih; reported
by Muslim, Abuu Daawood, at-Tirmidhii,
an-Nasaaii and Ibn Maajah).
Don’t venture into your old bad ways or
even start a new one
Don’t leave the Qur’an to dust
Wake up in the night as you did in the
days of Ramadan
and
Give sadaqoh(charity) always
There’s nothing actually after Ramadan
than what Ramadan brought and the
deeds it preached.
May Almighty Allah make it easy for us
and make our last deed our best deed,
also may He make our best day the day
we will meet Him.
