It has been two months since the blessed month of Ramadan. During this time, and for the next two months, the companions of the Prophet Muhammad ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) would make Du’a that their Ramadan was accepted from them. What about us? Have we forgotten about the progress we made? Have we continued the beautiful actions we did? What is your motivation to continue once this blessed month has long passed? The month of Ramadan is widely known as the month of the Qur’an. One of the many beautiful things about Ramadan is that it is the month where almost everyone makes an extra effort to have a special relationship with the Qur’an, whether it is increasing recitation, or pondering more over the meaning of the great verses.
This year, Ramadan flew past and left us within a blink of an eye. Although we may feel saddened, Ramadan is a training period for the rest of the year – it shows you your potential for worship, good character, and avoidance of sin. But, as Ramadan goes further away from us, it is easy to feel the temptation of sin, and the laziness to continue to do good. Therefore, we need to continuously remind ourselves of the benefits of Ibadah, so that we feel that we truly cannot live without it.More
