Most prominent ritual that people do in shawwal is fasting the six days of shawaal.
You have to make up for the missed days of Ramadan so that you would have fulfilled fasting the whole month of Ramadan. And after that you must… if you wish fast the six days of shawwal in order to fall under the category and under the reward of the Prophet (saw) that afterwards meaning after fasting Ramadan you follow that with six days of shawwal.
if I select to fast Mondays and Thursdays with the intention of the six days of shawwal, you get two birds with one stone.
Allah says don’t desire, don’t wish for that which we have given others when we have raised some above others. Allah has created different roles for everyone to play.
Allah says don’t become depressed by wishing and wanting that which Allah didn’t give you, SubhanAllah especially when it comes to something natural.
Be happy with Allah’s decreed, be happy with the way Allah has made you, be okay with your hair, and with your looks with everything else be fine with it. That’s how Allah wanted to make you unless there is something absolutely abnormal which you would be allowed to rectify and to correct.
We, Muslims, have been told about this man who is called dajjal/ ad dajjal by our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam More than any other religion in the entire world.
He (Saw) spoke about him in so much detail because the time for dajjal to arise And walk on earth and do what he’s going to do is very close.
Deception which is to mix truth with lies and make people believe it and make it so hard to disbelieve it. dajjal is the biggest trial that’s going to come to the people. why he is tied up for now?
Ibn Abbas (ra) said the documentation of Allah is every expression, every word and every signal whether it is expressed written or spoken. That’s the way that Allah documents
If you would not bring yourself to say it to someone, don’t write it.
When we use social media use it in a way that if you were to die for some reason you would not be embarrassed about the content that you have put out there.
As a Believer we should do that which is good. We should do that which is not embarrassing if we were to die and even if we did not die, but we need to be much more responsible when it comes to the use of social media.
In the Battle of Badr, which was one of the first battles that was fought by the Muslims to regain what they had lost, Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala tells us that two qualities if they’re found in people, the Angels may come to help them.
The day of Crisis, the day of war, the day when the belief of the Believers was being tested and Allah says remember when we helped you during the Battle of Badr, subhanallah.
if you are conscious of Allah and you bare patience with those two, Two characteristics if the enemy were to swipe at you right now, we would send you five thousand angels Guess what they were patient. They developed their taqwa.
Develop your patience, develop your relationship with Allah and here against the enemy Allah will grant you Victory.
In suratul Al-A’raf, subhanahu wa’ta’ala addresses us all by calling us Ya bani Adam! o children of Adam, don’t let shaitan trap you with his traps
Shaytan /devil trapped Adam and Eve/ Adam and hawwa May peace be upon them, and promised with his two things:
Be careful go and read about that, go and find out what shaitaan did, shaytan promised them two things, shaytan said if you disobey Allah, you’re going to live forever, and you will own everything.
Allah says shaitaan’s /devil’s Aim is to make you reveal your private parts, to make you take off your clothing,
Allah says watch out, shaytan wants you to be immoral, shaytan wants you to actually forget Allah. So He wants us and says be careful, don’t fall into the same trap of the devil. Otherwise, you will be exposed.
If you’re feeling more spiritual this moment at the end of Ramadan, then your Ramadan has been successful.
If the day of Eid is a day of obedience, a day where you still pray your qiyamul lail, a day where you still pray in the Masjid five times a day, a day where you still read the Quran and this is a huge sign that Allah azzawajal has accepted your qiyam and your reading of the Quran and your prayers in Ramadan.
So it’s important that we’re trying to form habits in sha Allah tala that will Outlast Ramadan and go beyond Ramadan.
one of the signs of an accepted Ramadan Is that our life changes, even if it were to mean or even if it was to mean just by a few inches, but the life has changed. If my life changes after Ramadan It means my Ramadan was correct.
