What A Lost People But Who! Mufti Menk

At the end of Ramadan, now what?

Allah Almighty made things compulsory in Ramadan that are not compulsory out of Ramadan, and we did those things, and we tried to do a few more things.

So I’m still going to stick to what Allah has made compulsory out of Ramadan.

But after Ramadan, there is a statement of the predecessors that they used to state, what a lost people who worship Allah only in the month of Ramadan.

Without bearing in mind that the same Allah who was in Ramadan is here out of Ramadan.

What a bad nation or what bad people who only worship Allah in the month of Ramadan, or they don’t worship Allah, except in the month of Ramadan.

When things happen to change our lives in a beautiful positive way, you begin to feel the blessings of Allah in your life.

You appreciate the halal in your life to the degree that you don’t even incline towards haram.

Know The Secrets Of Seeking Laylatul Qadr Including 27th Ramadan! Mufti Menk

The narration of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, wherein he speaks about searching for the night of decree, the night of power or the night of decree in the Arabic language, Laylat al Qadr.

When we search for it, the idea is to be able to worship Allah through a number of days, not just one.

The most powerful nights are the nights of Ramadan. From them, there are powerful nights towards the second half of Ramadan. In the last 10 nights, there is a greater chance that Laylat al Qadr is in those 10, the ones we are in right now.

Then he says, search for the night of decree in the odd nights from the last 10 nights of Ramadan.

How do I search for the night?

Although Laylat al Qadr is inside Ramadan, It is one night that has the value of the whole of the rest of Ramadan and beyond.

Laylat al Qadr that night of decree is more powerful or better than a thousand months.

If everyone is rushing towards Allah, don’t be the only few left out.

Learn Two Thing For One Of The Most Difficult Things Is To ‘Forgive’! Mufti Menk

one of the most difficult things for us as human beings to do is to forgive others. It is very difficult, especially when it is done by someone who was close to you, when they’ve wronged you and they have oppressed you or harmed you or usurped your wealth or something has happened.


Sometimes it’s a misunderstanding. But this is the month of forgiveness. We need to talk about the most difficult of things and we need to encourage one another to forgive and to reconcile because to mend relationships is a great act of worship.

if we’re all connected, surely it means we should try our best to understand one another, to make life easy for those on earth who are our family members anyway.

Get used to not holding too much. Leave it be. Let it go.

Laylat Al Qadr will Be Never Missed With The Most Powerful Dua By This! Mufti Menk 2023

As we draw closer to the last 10 nights of Ramadan, from the 21st night, there is something known as  Itikaf, that is a sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. It’s his way. Now, it is called I’tikaf, where a person goes into… It’s not seclusion, but they go into the Masjid and they would remain in this place of worship with the idea of it serving as a spiritual retreat for the person.


There may be others with that person, but the idea is to develop taqwa and the consciousness of Allah, seek the forgiveness of Allah, and more than anything else, find the night of decree or Laylat al Qadr.

If Laylat al Qadr is said to be one of the last 10 nights of Ramadan, most likely one of the last odd nights from the last 10 nights of Ramadan, and most likely towards the end or the second half of the last 10 nights. So it would make it 25, 27, perhaps 29. But it does not mean it’s not going to be the 21st.

Sometimes even maybe the even nights according to some of the narration; So if the 21st night sets in as the sun is setting and you’re opening your fast, you go into the masjid and you make sure that you’ve taken whatever necessities you have, you’re going to remain in there in constant acts of worship for the next 10 nights.

You come out of that itikaf after 10 days and Insha Allah, so much goodness will be showered upon you by the blessings of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala.

Ask Yourself These Questions For Your Spiritual Development! Mufti Menk

This beautiful month of Ramadan, Allah Almighty wants us to do as much as we can and to push ourselves. How much of Quran did you read today? That’s a question.

The month of Ramadan comes by in order for us to get closer to Allah in the form of taqwa, meaning the consciousness of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala.

The month of Ramadan comes and Allah expects us to have improved. we will be judged by Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala based on how we were at the end of our lives. We still have some time, Insha Allah, although we don’t know how long.

But the fact that we’re awake right now, we’re alive right now, we’re alert right now, we can make an intention by His will to change for the sake of Allah, to develop for the sake of Allah.

Must Listen To It Before Giving Your Zakat & Charity! Mufti Menk

Many people love to actually give their Zakaat out during the month of Ramadan because of the multiplication of reward. And if we take a look at it, yes, indeed, the reward is multiplied. And it is not wrong to calculate your Zakaat during the month of Ramadan to pledge it and to start giving it out.

However, something of importance; If there is a need prior to Ramadan, you must remember that you will get a full reward when you are meeting the desperate need, even though it is not in the month of Ramadan when you have already intended that I’m going to work this out in Ramadan and give it in Ramadan, because Allah Almighty rewards you by your intentions.

If we are going to delay when there is a need, we could have delayed and caused loss of life in an indirect way because there was a need and we are saying, Wait and hang on.

We cannot wait and we cannot hang on.

Know 4 Things While Crying To Allah For Your Desperate Needs In Ramadan! Mufti Menk

Cry as much as you want. Shed as many tears as you wish. It is the month of shedding tears for the sake of Allah. No matter who you are, no matter what you’ve achieved in life, Allah Almighty has definitely made you in need of Him in such a way that you will have difficulty, you will have hardship, you will have situations whereby you are helpless, you will have needs where you know that without your maker, I will not be able to achieve this.


Therefore, cry as much as you want. Cry for the sake of Allah. Cry for your needs. Call out to Him and weep.

Great Reminders For Authentic Hadith Rejecters! Mufti Menk

Beyond that which is an obligation is something that is recommended, but it’s not an obligation. And sometimes there are things that are permissible, and if you were to do them, you would be rewarded, but it’s not an obligation.

Sunnah means the Prophet, peace be upon him, did it, he taught it. One would not be sinful to leave it out, but one would achieve such a great reward One would not be sinful to leave it out, but one would achieve such a great reward peace be upon him, says, The two units of voluntary prayer.

The Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, his entire life, every movement of his recorded, every statement of his recorded, every action of his recorded, the nodding of his head recorded, and the lessons learned from all of this, something amazing.

the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, was given the Quran to give to us. Allah chose the most trustworthy.

If we can trust Him regarding the Quran, which is the revelation of Allah that He gave us, how can we not trust Him regarding his own life and his other statements that he has said?

If we didn’t believe these, how can we actually believe the others?

Those who say that we won’t take any hadith, need to reconsider their stance. The reason is you can only be a Muslim when you declare, I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship besides Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad, peace be upon him, is the messenger of Allah.

A messenger comes with a message. The Quran leads you to the sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.

If we did not take from the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, we would not be able to fulfill what the Quran has brought.
