May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Aameen)



Fasting is such a personal and sincere act of worship that it is only known by Allah and the person keeping the fast. What is it that prevents a person from breaking his fast before sunset? One can easily deceive the people; it is only the consciousness of Allah and fear of His divine reproach that prevents a person from doing so. Once the realisation sets in that the same Omnipotent Allah who knows about the state of our fast is aware of all our actions throughout the year, it will be extremely easy to abstain from any other type of sin.

In particular, refrain from wasting precious time on the phone and on the internet during this blessed month. Our elders totally refrained from mixing with people in this month. They felt it was too precious to spend with anyone other than Allah.

In short, talk less and you will gain salvation; eat less and you will secure success; sleep less so you are not regarded as negligent and, most of all, don’t waste time. Shaytaan occupies free minds. After all, ‘an idol mind is the devils workshop’ and that’s when it’s easiest for him to attack us. So always try to keep yourselves busy. For remember, our biggest form of worship is to refrain from sin – this is extremely important.

I was the substitute teacher for a second-grade maths class that was learning about groups. In one exercise, pupils were asked to label a group of items according to their common characteristics.

Pictured were onion rings, doughnuts, a bundt cake, and ring cookies. The correct answer would have been that all the items have holes in the centre.

But one health-conscious boy's response was, "All of those things contain too much cholesterol."
