Ramadan In The Name Of Allah,the most Beneficent, the most Gracious, the most Merciful!
Alhamudilah, we’ve all been blessed to have this Ramadan In our lives
So what do we DO in ramadan?
Is this the purpose of  Ramadan???
5 Why fasting? The goal of fasting is to developself-restraint. Holy Quran states: “O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, so that you may develop Taqwa(self-restraint) ” [2:183]  Example: God says about Mary in the Qur’an that she said: “Verily!, I have vowed a fast to the Most Beneficent…[Maryam 19:26]. What is Taqwa? Taqwa is an Arabic word. It is the state of  heart that motivates  virtuous conduct and  prevents evil action. leads to Fear of God Love of God + Taqwa (Self-restraint) Taqwa is the ability to safe-guard.
6 Benefits of Fasting in Islam : How character-building is achieved… God-fearing nature Afterlife Accountability Patience Self-control Taqwa (Self-restraint) Fasting Self-discipline Responsibility Obedience Purification of soul
7 The role of fasting according to Dr Jack Goldstein*  It gives vital organs a complete rest It promotes elimination of metabolic wastes It allows the body to adjust and normalize its biochemistry and also its secretions  It lets the body break down and absorb swellings, deposits, diseased tissues, and abnormal growths;  Fasting is good  for the human body It restores a youthful condition to the cells and tissues It increases the powers of digestion and assimilation (absorption and utilization of food into the system)  It permits the conservation and re-routing of energy; It clears and strengthens the mind; * From the Book Triumph Over Disease By Fasting and Natural Diet
8 Misbeliefs about fasting* Fasting does not: cause the stomach to atrophy paralyze the bowels deplete the blood  produce anemia  cause the heart to weaken or collapse produce deficiency or mal nutritional disease reduce resistance to disease harm the teeth, the nervous system, glands or vital organs weaken the vital powers or cause mental disturbances.  Blood sugar is little depressed; it is synthesized from protein.  * From the Book Triumph Over Disease By Fasting and Natural Diet
9 Reward of fasting Prophet Muhammad’s (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) proclaimed the reward of fasting: “Every action of the son of Adam is given manifold reward, each good deed receiving ten times its like, up to seven hundred times. Allah the Most High said, ‘Except for fasting, for it is for Me and I will give recompense for it, he leaves off his desires and his food for Me.’ for the fasting person there are two times of joy; a time when he breaks his fast and a time of joy when he meets his Lord, and the smell coming from the mouth of the fasting person is better with Allah than the smell of musk.”
10 Fasting and sins don’t go together Prophet Muhammad’s (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “  Allah has no need for the hunger and the thirst of the person who does not restrain from telling lies and acting on them even while observing fast.” “  When one of you is fasting, He should abstain from indecent acts and unnecessary talk, and if someone begins an obscene conversation or tries to pick an argument, he should simply tell him, ‘I am fasting.’”
So what SHOULD we be doing                  in Ramadan? But WAIT!!!
Are you a “Ramadan Muslim”?
Sadly, most of us are!
It’s really amazing how it can go from this, To this in ONE day!
Who are we trying to fool?!! Do we obey Allah for  ONE month And then become  shaytan’s ally for the  rest of the 11 months
What will happen to us after Ramadan? Have we fulfilled the requirements of taqwa and graduated from the Ramadan school with the diploma of the god-fearing? Have we fought our souls and desires and defeated them, or have we been overtaken by our customs and blind imitations? Have we performed our actions in a way that fulfills the conditions for receiving mercy, forgiveness and release from the Fire?
“Verily, Allah does not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves.” [Ar-Ra`d, 11]  If you are from those who benefited from Ramadan, fulfilled the requirements of taqwa, truly fasted the month, prayed in it with truthfulness, and strove against you soul, then praise and thank Allah, and ask Him for steadfastness upon it until you meet your death. Be not like one who has sewn a shirt and then destroyed it... Have you seen one who sewed a shirt or thawb, so when she looked at it, she liked it. Then she destroyed it pulling a thread by thread for no reason. What would people say about such a person?! Or have you seen one who earns a fortune trading throughout the day, then when the night comes, he throws away all that he earned, dirham by dirham. What would people say about such a person?! This is the condition of one who returns to sinning and evildoing after Ramadan and leaves obedience and righteous actions. So after he was favored with the blessing of obedience and enjoyment of communicating with Allah he returned to the blaze of sins and evil actions. How evil are the people who know Allah only in Ramadan!
Now,who doesn’t want his/herRamadan to be accepted by Allah? Here’s how it WON’T be accepted: Men leaving the five prayers in congregation, and  going only for Friday prayer Return to habits they had “given up” in Ramadan This is not thankfulness for blessings and favors, nor is it the sign of acceptance of one's actions, rather this is opposition to favors and absence of thankfulness. These are from signs of one's deeds not being accepted – and Allah's refuge is sought – for one who truly fasts rejoices on the occasion of `eid, praises his Lord for helping him complete the fast, and remains fearful that Allah may not accept his fasting, just as the Salaf would continue asking for acceptance of their actions in Ramadan for six months after it.
So what are the signs of acceptance ? “And remember when your Lord proclaimed, 'If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor]…” [Ibrahim, 7] Increase you in good, faith and righteous actions. So if the servant is truly thankful to his Lord, you will see him guided to more obedience and distanced from sinfulness. Thankfulness is leaving sins, as the early Muslims said. “And worship your Lord until there comes you to the certainty [i.e. death].” [al-Hijr, 99] The Muslim must continuously be in the state of obedience of Allah, firm upon His Sharee`ah, steadfast upon His Deen, so that he or she is not of those who worship Allah only during one month or only in one place. Rather, the believer knows that the Lord of Ramadan is also the Lord of other months, and that He is the Lord of all times and places, so he is steadfast upon the Sharee`ah of Allah until he meets Him while He is pleased with him. Allah ta`ala said, “So remain on a right course as you have been commanded, [you] and those who have turned back with you [to Allah].” [Hud, 112] And, “So take a straight course to Him and seek His forgiveness.” [Fussilat, 6] And the Prophet, ﷺsaid, “Say 'I believe in Allah', then be steadfast.” [Muslim]
If the fasting in Ramadan has ended, then there remains voluntary fasting, such as fasting six days in Shawwal, on Mondays and Thursdays, the three days in the middle of the month, the days of `Aashoora and `Arafat, and others. -- If standing in prayer at night during Ramadan has ended, then there remains voluntary night prayer throughout the year. “They used to sleep but little of the night.” [Adh-Dhaariyaat, 17] -- If the charity in Ramadan and zakatul-fitr have ended, then there is the obligatory Zakat, and also there are many other open doors to charity, voluntary actions and jihad. -- Reading of the Qur'an and contemplating it is not only for Ramadan, rather it is for all times. Righteous actions are for all times and all places, so strive – O my brother and sister – and beware of laziness. And remember that it is not allowed for us to leave the obligatory actions or delay them, such as the five daily prayers on time, in congregation etc. And do not fall into forbidden actions, such as forbidden sayings, food and drinks, or by looking at or listening to what is forbidden. Be steadfast and upright upon the Deen of Allah at all times, for you do not know when you'll meet the Angel of Death. Beware of him taking you while you are in a state of sin. “O Allah, Who turns the hearts, keep our hearts steadfast upon Your Deen.”
I ask Allah to accept from us and you our fasting, our prayers and other righteous actions, that our condition after Ramadan be a better one, that the state of our Ummah improves, that we are granted honour and that we truly turn to our Lord…Ameen

Ramadan

  • 1. Ramadan In The Name Of Allah,the most Beneficent, the most Gracious, the most Merciful!
  • 2. Alhamudilah, we’ve all been blessed to have this Ramadan In our lives
  • 3. So what do we DO in ramadan?
  • 4. Is this the purpose of Ramadan???
  • 5. 5 Why fasting? The goal of fasting is to developself-restraint. Holy Quran states: “O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, so that you may develop Taqwa(self-restraint) ” [2:183] Example: God says about Mary in the Qur’an that she said: “Verily!, I have vowed a fast to the Most Beneficent…[Maryam 19:26]. What is Taqwa? Taqwa is an Arabic word. It is the state of heart that motivates virtuous conduct and prevents evil action. leads to Fear of God Love of God + Taqwa (Self-restraint) Taqwa is the ability to safe-guard.
  • 6. 6 Benefits of Fasting in Islam : How character-building is achieved… God-fearing nature Afterlife Accountability Patience Self-control Taqwa (Self-restraint) Fasting Self-discipline Responsibility Obedience Purification of soul
  • 7. 7 The role of fasting according to Dr Jack Goldstein* It gives vital organs a complete rest It promotes elimination of metabolic wastes It allows the body to adjust and normalize its biochemistry and also its secretions  It lets the body break down and absorb swellings, deposits, diseased tissues, and abnormal growths; Fasting is good for the human body It restores a youthful condition to the cells and tissues It increases the powers of digestion and assimilation (absorption and utilization of food into the system) It permits the conservation and re-routing of energy; It clears and strengthens the mind; * From the Book Triumph Over Disease By Fasting and Natural Diet
  • 8. 8 Misbeliefs about fasting* Fasting does not: cause the stomach to atrophy paralyze the bowels deplete the blood produce anemia cause the heart to weaken or collapse produce deficiency or mal nutritional disease reduce resistance to disease harm the teeth, the nervous system, glands or vital organs weaken the vital powers or cause mental disturbances. Blood sugar is little depressed; it is synthesized from protein. * From the Book Triumph Over Disease By Fasting and Natural Diet
  • 9. 9 Reward of fasting Prophet Muhammad’s (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) proclaimed the reward of fasting: “Every action of the son of Adam is given manifold reward, each good deed receiving ten times its like, up to seven hundred times. Allah the Most High said, ‘Except for fasting, for it is for Me and I will give recompense for it, he leaves off his desires and his food for Me.’ for the fasting person there are two times of joy; a time when he breaks his fast and a time of joy when he meets his Lord, and the smell coming from the mouth of the fasting person is better with Allah than the smell of musk.”
  • 10. 10 Fasting and sins don’t go together Prophet Muhammad’s (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “ Allah has no need for the hunger and the thirst of the person who does not restrain from telling lies and acting on them even while observing fast.” “ When one of you is fasting, He should abstain from indecent acts and unnecessary talk, and if someone begins an obscene conversation or tries to pick an argument, he should simply tell him, ‘I am fasting.’”
  • 11. So what SHOULD we be doing in Ramadan? But WAIT!!!
  • 12. Are you a “Ramadan Muslim”?
  • 13. Sadly, most of us are!
  • 14. It’s really amazing how it can go from this, To this in ONE day!
  • 15. Who are we trying to fool?!! Do we obey Allah for ONE month And then become shaytan’s ally for the rest of the 11 months
  • 16.
  • 17. What will happen to us after Ramadan? Have we fulfilled the requirements of taqwa and graduated from the Ramadan school with the diploma of the god-fearing? Have we fought our souls and desires and defeated them, or have we been overtaken by our customs and blind imitations? Have we performed our actions in a way that fulfills the conditions for receiving mercy, forgiveness and release from the Fire?
  • 18. “Verily, Allah does not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves.” [Ar-Ra`d, 11] If you are from those who benefited from Ramadan, fulfilled the requirements of taqwa, truly fasted the month, prayed in it with truthfulness, and strove against you soul, then praise and thank Allah, and ask Him for steadfastness upon it until you meet your death. Be not like one who has sewn a shirt and then destroyed it... Have you seen one who sewed a shirt or thawb, so when she looked at it, she liked it. Then she destroyed it pulling a thread by thread for no reason. What would people say about such a person?! Or have you seen one who earns a fortune trading throughout the day, then when the night comes, he throws away all that he earned, dirham by dirham. What would people say about such a person?! This is the condition of one who returns to sinning and evildoing after Ramadan and leaves obedience and righteous actions. So after he was favored with the blessing of obedience and enjoyment of communicating with Allah he returned to the blaze of sins and evil actions. How evil are the people who know Allah only in Ramadan!
  • 19. Now,who doesn’t want his/herRamadan to be accepted by Allah? Here’s how it WON’T be accepted: Men leaving the five prayers in congregation, and going only for Friday prayer Return to habits they had “given up” in Ramadan This is not thankfulness for blessings and favors, nor is it the sign of acceptance of one's actions, rather this is opposition to favors and absence of thankfulness. These are from signs of one's deeds not being accepted – and Allah's refuge is sought – for one who truly fasts rejoices on the occasion of `eid, praises his Lord for helping him complete the fast, and remains fearful that Allah may not accept his fasting, just as the Salaf would continue asking for acceptance of their actions in Ramadan for six months after it.
  • 20. So what are the signs of acceptance ? “And remember when your Lord proclaimed, 'If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor]…” [Ibrahim, 7] Increase you in good, faith and righteous actions. So if the servant is truly thankful to his Lord, you will see him guided to more obedience and distanced from sinfulness. Thankfulness is leaving sins, as the early Muslims said. “And worship your Lord until there comes you to the certainty [i.e. death].” [al-Hijr, 99] The Muslim must continuously be in the state of obedience of Allah, firm upon His Sharee`ah, steadfast upon His Deen, so that he or she is not of those who worship Allah only during one month or only in one place. Rather, the believer knows that the Lord of Ramadan is also the Lord of other months, and that He is the Lord of all times and places, so he is steadfast upon the Sharee`ah of Allah until he meets Him while He is pleased with him. Allah ta`ala said, “So remain on a right course as you have been commanded, [you] and those who have turned back with you [to Allah].” [Hud, 112] And, “So take a straight course to Him and seek His forgiveness.” [Fussilat, 6] And the Prophet, ﷺsaid, “Say 'I believe in Allah', then be steadfast.” [Muslim]
  • 21. If the fasting in Ramadan has ended, then there remains voluntary fasting, such as fasting six days in Shawwal, on Mondays and Thursdays, the three days in the middle of the month, the days of `Aashoora and `Arafat, and others. -- If standing in prayer at night during Ramadan has ended, then there remains voluntary night prayer throughout the year. “They used to sleep but little of the night.” [Adh-Dhaariyaat, 17] -- If the charity in Ramadan and zakatul-fitr have ended, then there is the obligatory Zakat, and also there are many other open doors to charity, voluntary actions and jihad. -- Reading of the Qur'an and contemplating it is not only for Ramadan, rather it is for all times. Righteous actions are for all times and all places, so strive – O my brother and sister – and beware of laziness. And remember that it is not allowed for us to leave the obligatory actions or delay them, such as the five daily prayers on time, in congregation etc. And do not fall into forbidden actions, such as forbidden sayings, food and drinks, or by looking at or listening to what is forbidden. Be steadfast and upright upon the Deen of Allah at all times, for you do not know when you'll meet the Angel of Death. Beware of him taking you while you are in a state of sin. “O Allah, Who turns the hearts, keep our hearts steadfast upon Your Deen.”
  • 22. I ask Allah to accept from us and you our fasting, our prayers and other righteous actions, that our condition after Ramadan be a better one, that the state of our Ummah improves, that we are granted honour and that we truly turn to our Lord…Ameen
