Doctor Zakir, why is it that Muslims can't

00:00:04--> 00:00:04

continue

00:00:05--> 00:00:06

worshiping Allah

00:00:06--> 00:00:08

with the same enthusiasm and zeal

00:00:09--> 00:00:10

after the month of Ramadan.

00:00:11--> 00:00:13

One of the main reasons for this is

00:00:13--> 00:00:15

because many Muslims,

00:00:15--> 00:00:17

they consider the

00:00:17--> 00:00:19

acts done in the month of Ramadan

00:00:19--> 00:00:21

more as a custom, more as a tradition.

00:00:21--> 00:00:23

That it's a custom we have to fast

00:00:23--> 00:00:25

in the month of Ramadan, we have to

00:00:25--> 00:00:26

pray tarav in the month of Ramadan, we

00:00:26--> 00:00:28

have to do good deeds. More of a

00:00:28--> 00:00:30

custom, it is not for the worship of

00:00:30--> 00:00:32

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. And there are many

00:00:32--> 00:00:32

people

00:00:33--> 00:00:35

who offer tarawi,

00:00:35--> 00:00:36

there is the kramulal,

00:00:37--> 00:00:39

very religiously, but unfortunately,

00:00:39--> 00:00:41

they miss many of the Fardis Salah. Yes.

00:00:41--> 00:00:42

Which is

00:00:43--> 00:00:43

absolutely

00:00:44--> 00:00:46

wrong because the is a

00:00:46--> 00:00:47

is not a

00:00:49--> 00:00:52

So because of this more of a custom,

00:00:52--> 00:00:54

Ramadan being more of a custom,

00:00:54--> 00:00:56

more of a tradition, that's the reason that

00:00:56--> 00:00:58

once Ramadan is over, they forget everything as

00:00:58--> 00:01:00

I mentioned earlier. That as well live only

00:01:00--> 00:01:01

there in the month of Ramadan and not

00:01:01--> 00:01:02

in the other months.

00:01:04--> 00:01:05

Point number 2

00:01:06--> 00:01:07

is

00:01:07--> 00:01:08

because

00:01:09--> 00:01:10

the surrounding

00:01:10--> 00:01:12

and the atmosphere, which is then the month

00:01:12--> 00:01:13

of Ramnana

00:01:13--> 00:01:14

does not remain

00:01:15--> 00:01:16

after Ramnana is over.

00:01:17--> 00:01:18

So if they as I mentioned earlier, they

00:01:18--> 00:01:19

keep

00:01:19--> 00:01:22

righteous friends and company of good people, then

00:01:22--> 00:01:24

the chances of being steadfast is much more.

00:01:25--> 00:01:26

And thirdly,

00:01:26--> 00:01:28

that because of weak faith,

00:01:28--> 00:01:29

many a time,

00:01:30--> 00:01:32

that of righteousness keeps on becoming less and

00:01:32--> 00:01:34

less. In the starting of Ramadan people are

00:01:34--> 00:01:35

enthusiastic

00:01:35--> 00:01:37

and they all do it sometimes. Therefore, we

00:01:37--> 00:01:38

find that

00:01:38--> 00:01:39

the mosque

00:01:39--> 00:01:40

are filled

00:01:40--> 00:01:41

during the

00:01:42--> 00:01:43

first starting nights

00:01:43--> 00:01:44

for Tarawi,

00:01:44--> 00:01:46

for Khayyam ul Layl, and later on keeps

00:01:46--> 00:01:48

on decreasing and towards end of Ramadan, it

00:01:48--> 00:01:49

becomes the least.

00:01:50--> 00:01:52

So a person should not all do the

00:01:52--> 00:01:53

act out of zeal and enthusiasm as the

00:01:53--> 00:01:56

prophet said, that the act should be constant

00:01:56--> 00:01:59

that's better, even though it's few rather than,

00:01:59--> 00:02:00

you know, doing many and doing for a

00:02:00--> 00:02:01

short time.

00:02:02--> 00:02:04

So a person should do acts with a

00:02:04--> 00:02:06

constant and should be strong in faith.

00:02:07--> 00:02:08

And the last point is

00:02:09--> 00:02:11

that as it's mentioned, the hadith of Musa

00:02:11--> 00:02:12

Salaam,

00:02:12--> 00:02:13

Musnad Ahmad,

00:02:14--> 00:02:16

Volume number 2, page number 230, hadith number

00:02:16--> 00:02:17

7148.

00:02:17--> 00:02:19

The beloved prophet said that in the month

00:02:19--> 00:02:20

of Ramadan,

00:02:20--> 00:02:23

the satan, the devils, they're chained,

00:02:23--> 00:02:25

And the doors of paradise open, and the

00:02:25--> 00:02:28

gates of hell are closed, so but natural.

00:02:28--> 00:02:29

The temptation is there during the month of

00:02:29--> 00:02:32

Ramadan because the devils are chained.

00:02:32--> 00:02:34

The The moment Ramadan gets over, the temptation

00:02:34--> 00:02:36

is more, the devil is more after you,

00:02:36--> 00:02:37

so more chance of you to deviate from

00:02:37--> 00:02:39

the truth. And in the month of Ramadan,

00:02:39--> 00:02:42

the gates of hell are closed, the doors

00:02:42--> 00:02:44

of heaven are open, so more chance of

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

doing good deeds. So these are the few

00:02:45--> 00:02:46

points

00:02:47--> 00:02:48

not remain steadfast after the month of Ramadan.

00:02:47--> 00:02:48

not remain steadfast after the month of Ramadan.
