26 Apr Thieves of Ramadan
Be careful of the “thieves” during the month of Ramadan:
This thief is dangerous and ruins the days of people and diminishes their rewards. By watching useless movies and programs it squanders the time in a month where the days are the best of all days and the nights are the best of all nights.
- Too much sleep
Just because it is said in Hadith that even sleep in this month has reward, does not mean that you should excessively sleep! The point is that if even sleep contains rewards then imagine the rewards of ibadat!
- Wasting night
A thief that steals the most valuable time from you! This thief is responsible for turning you away from Salatul Layl, istighfaar and tawbah, and the reading of specific duas of Month Ramadhan and recitation of the Quran.
Give sadaqah, iftaar, and help the orphans. Give iftaar even if it is half a date, or a sip of water, so Allah swt will forgive your past sins.
- Gatherings without the dhikr of Allah swt
This thief comes with deep regret on the day of judgement!
- Helping parents
Whoever in this month does good towards their relatives, Allah swt connects them with His mercy on the day of judgement.
My dear, always be cheerful with your mother and father and serve them as much as you can.
- Bad Akhlaq
Fasting is not just refraining from food and drink, but eyes, ears, tongue, and all parts of body should also be fasting. Stay away from Lying, backbiting, cursing, suspicion…etc.
And the biggest thief …
- Social Media
If you do not use them in the right way, they can compromise your good deeds.
Beloveds!! Don’t let this Holy Month go so that when everyone is receiving their rewards, you are of the ones who are empty handed.
So be careful of the thieves of this blessed Month of Ramadan! Oh Allah make this the best Month of ours so far.
