A Tear in Ramadaan
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Praise only be to Allah, and peace and blessings be on his last Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam), and so:
I shed a tear in Ramadaan on those who don’t consider the sacredness of the month, and its virtues and merits, not only they meet it- as the other months- by sins and violations, but also they became farer from God –the Almighty- also they invented different types of sins and abominations, to deprive themselves and others from the heavy rain of rewards, they make the preparations to fight the God of the heavens and earth.
A tear in Ramadaan on those who waste the obligated prayers, as they sleep at the time of prayers at some time, delay it other time, and leave it sometime.
A tear in Ramadaan on those who disgrace Fasting sacredness, by their obscenity and bad morals, as they insult, curse, steal, backbite, and lie on people. And if you advised someone he argues that this is because of the Fasting!! As if Fasting is the reason behind these disadvantages, and they are unaware about the opinion of Fasting, its benefits, and its great rewards, and the most important benefits are:
Devotion towards Allah occurs as Allah says: «O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous» [Al Baqara 2:183]
So does the devotion to Allah call for insulting, cursing, injustice and aggression of which we are used to even in the sacred month of Ramadaan and in a sacred state of fasting? For that Allah’s Apostle said:
«Whoever doesn’t give up forged speech and evil actions, Allah is not need of his leaving his food and drink (i.e. Allah will not accept his fasting)» [Narrated by Bukhari 3:31:127], so may Allah have mercy on you to know the reality of Fasting.
A tear in Ramadaan on the women, who go out to pray Al-Taraweh prayer while they are adorned, incensed, scented, showily, and wearing their most beautiful dresses, and the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:
«Don’t prevent the female servants of Allah from visiting the mosques of Allah, but they may go out (to the mosque) having not perfumed themselves.» [Narrated by Abu Dawood 2:565 and Al-Albani said the hadith is Hasan Sahih]
And the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: «Whoever (woman) fumigates herself with perfume shouldn’t join us in the ‘Isha prayer» [Narrated by Muslim 4:894]
A tear in Ramadaan on those who waste the month on watching the channels of satellite TV, and no satellite TV which spread debauchery, nakedness, and buffoonery, and their madness, debauchery and buffoonery increase in that precious month to fight the virtues and violate the nation’s constants and sanctities.
