Don’t Waste This Blessed Month Of Ramadan
Ramadan is a very blessed month it is a special month to grab the blessing of Allah. In Ramadan the throne of Allah comes down to the first sky, the doors of hell are closed and the doors of heaven are opened. Those who get this month are very lucky but unfortunately, people do not realize the importance of it. The purpose of Ramadan is to worship Allah, to please Allah, to purify the heart, to forgive those with whom we are angry. Therefore, today the majority have deviated from this main purpose. The fact is, fasting is of our all body parts the fast of the brain is that don’t think wrong, the fast of the eyes is that don’t look at obscene things, fast of the ears is that don’t listen to haraam things for example songs, fast of the tongue is that not to lie and not to abuse, fast of the hands is that don’t do anything wrong, and the fast of the feet is, don’t walk with arrogance. We all know these things and also know that this auspicious month comes only once in a year but still even less than 50% of people follow these majors.
People have just given the name of fasting to be hungry and thirsty which is seriously a shame for us. Almost everyone has become so much busy in this fake world that they have even strayed far from their religion. I am very sorry to say that for years people have made Ramadan a joke, they stay up all night watching movies, dramas and engaging themselves in social media then after doing sehri they sleep the whole day. Other than this, they spend all their time in Eid’s shopping and iftar parties. Sadly, like this, they waste the entire month of Ramadan. Although, the significance of the Ramadan is that all months like Muharram, Rabi ul awwal, Safar till end have been named by Arabs. However, the name of Ramadan is mentioned by Allah in the Quran. What could be bigger than that?
The fast of the ummah before us was difficult it was from iftar to iftar and as compared to their fast our fast is much easy suhoor and iftar. This is truly a blessing for us for which we should be thankful to Allah but what we are doing is that we are giving more priority to worldly things than Ramadan. As soon as the month of Ramadan begins, the price of everything increases, and the only slogan in the mouths of shopkeepers is that it is time for us to earn. But how much money will they make? Maximumly few millions, billions or trillions however, if they give goods at a less price to a fasting person, Allah will stable their eleven generations. Don’t make Ramadan a month of making money, but a month of making paradise. This world and everything that exist here is temporary, including money and no matter how much money we make, we can never compete with God’s paradise, but everyone is ignoring these things people are badly misled.
Allah is giving chances to his people. So they could come back to the right path, but it seems as if the eyes of the people have been blindfolded they are thinking about what they are doing is right. Therefore, if the people do not open their eyes despite being given a chance by Allah, so if Allah gives respite, he also pulls the rope. That’s exactly what happened today Allah has pulled the rope of the people just from a tiny coronavirus. Even in this condition as well instead of trying to recover, people are in curiosity like how many people have died from this virus and where did this virus comes from. But being a Muslim our belief is on Islam and Islam says the disease comes from Allah and is not transmitted in a human until Allah Almighty himself transmitted it. So now we have to leave this curiosity and should try to come on the right path because, to be honest, this is just a trailer of God’s punishment which has locked the whole world inside the house now how will people go to iftar parties and for Eid’s shopping.
It’s not too late yet, we should be prudent and ask Allah to forgive us for our mistakes and sins. Ramadan means to burn. This month, if a man or woman fasts, his or her sins of the past year keep burning. But for that fast should be fast, not just starving. Well, it shows how much Allah loves us and does not even close the door of forgiveness for us despite our mistakes. It’s my appeal to all don’t waste this blessed month of Ramadan we don’t know if we will get to see Ramadan next year or not so we should please Allah as soon as possible. Last but not the least, don’t repeat your mistakes, and again I’m repeating make fast really a fast in which fast is of our all body parts, and whoever does this, Allah will be his and whoever finds Allah will get his paradise. His worries will be removed and will be saved from all kinds of diseases including COVID 19, that person will be the luckiest. Seriously I have no words to describe the good fortune of such a person. So everyone opens your eyes before it is too late.
