After the Month of Ramadhan is over

After the Month of Ramadhan is over

Yahya bin Muaadh (May Allah be pleased with him) said:

“The smart individual is not the one whose greatest goal is other than seeking the pardon of Allah. (The smart individual is not the one who) seeks forgiveness with his tongue, while his heart is firmly attached to sin, and he truly intends to return to sin after the completion of Ramadhan. This individual’s fast is rejected, and acceptance is closed in his face.”

Ka’b (May Allah be pleased with him) said:

“Whoever fasts Ramadhan while inwardly saying: Once the month is over, I will disobey Allah; this person’s fasting is rejected. And whoever fasts the month while inwardly saying: Upon completion of the month, I won’t disobey Allah, this person will enter Jannah without questioning or debate.”

(Lataa’if al Ma’aarif of Ibn Rajab: Chapter: the ending of Ramadhan)

Explanation

“Upon completion of the month, I won’t disobey Allah…” meaning that the person has made a firm resolve after having repented in the month of Ramadhan, that he will not return to his old ways of negligence and sin, but will now after having completed the month take his religion more seriously, striving hard to please Allah(swt) through obedience to the commands of Allah and following the sunnah of His(swt) beloved Prophet(saw).
