“…fasting is like a shield, and he who fasts has two joys: a joy when he breaks his fast and a joy when he meets his Lord.” – Hadith Qudsi
How well have you been doing with your fast, remember it was ‘one’ sometimes and now with the grace of Allah it’s going to be fourteen today at Iftar. By tomorrow, it will mark the half of the month. Mashaa Allah!
Remember, Ramadan holds a lot, you know and in it you can build happiness, joy and everlasting life. That is, it has afford you a reason to be consistent in the good deeds you are doing even after the Holy Month to earn the everlasting favour of Allah. Doing good deeds to others give in return comfort and solace to the one doing so. He is the first person that will benefit from his deeds, he sees changes in himself and in his manners. Offering a handful of helps to others, causing them to smile, he himself find peace at heart.
Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) said “Do not dismiss certain acts of kindness by deeming them to be insignificant; even if you meet your brother with a smiling face (then it is an action which my weigh heavily in your scale of deeds).”
We should be resilient if we are drowning already. Some along the way become restless and forfeit the goodies yet to come their ways but those with resilient hysteria despite their tiredness continue with the acts and before you know it, it becomes part of them. They are blessed and are elevated both physically and spiritually. Doing good to others is an act of charity, and charity have more potent result on the doer of the good deeds.
One should let the month of Ramadan become a guide for him to be under the shade of Allah and be at joy when he meets his Lord on the day of reckoning. Allah will help us – aamin.
