"What to do after Ramadaan?"
Hazrat Ml Abdul Hamid Sb (DB) has mentioned in a malfoozat (advice) that the mahroom person is he who after Ramadaan gives up all the good that he was doing in Ramadaan. In an article written by Hz Ml Yunus Patel Sb (R) the question is posed whether we restrained ourselves in Ramadaan merely to return with renewed vigour to our bad ways before Ramadaan. Hazrat further mentions that a person’s lifestyle after Ramadaan will tell as to whether the month was used in order to bring about a total reformation in oneself. A person may be doing good deeds such as fasting and reading taraweeh in Ramadaan, but still indulging in major sins such as gambling, adultery etc. Whilst such good deeds will be a means of salvation in the hereafter, this is only possible after a process of purification. Hazrat mentions that the spirit of sabr, tolerance, sympathy for the poor and sadaqah built in Ramadaan must remain. After Ramadaan, shaytaan has returned with his objective of causing trouble and if we allow him to gain the upper hand we risk losing the gains of Ramadaan. It is further explained that should the non-muslims of the country see Islam in the lives of the Muslims not much persuasion will be required for them to accept our beautiful Deen. The Sahabah RA were embodiments of the akhlaaq and character of Nabi-e-Kareem (SAW). They were thus magnets of Hidayah who drew the hearts’ of the people towards them, transforming whole nations.
