Fun In Ramadan
Muhammed Al Hashimi Mustafa
There is a dangerous tendency noticed especially in Ramadan, i.e. wasting
one's time instead of spending it in Allah's worship, remembrance and
obedience. In fact, it is the renunciation of Allah's worship and obedience
which results in the deprivation of Allah's Mercy and Divine awards.
Thus, Allah said: "But whosoever turns away from My message verily for him is
a life narrowed down, and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Judgement.
He will say: 'O my Rubb, why have you raised me up blind, while I had sight
(before)? Allah will say: ' Thus did you, when Our signs came unto you, you
disregarded them, so wilt thou, this day, be disregarded.' And thus do We
recompense him who transgresses beyond bounds and believes not the signs of
his Rubb: and the punishment of the Hereafter is far more grievous and more
Don't you feel sorry for the young Muslims who ramble in the streets or
playgrounds during the auspicious nights of Ramadan? How many sins are
committed openly on these blessed nights?
Yes, indeed, a true Muslim should pity young Muslims who loiter the hours away
in vain. No doubt, a way to gain happiness is to give advice to Muslims who go
astray and show them the right way. On the other hand, we should pray to Allah
to help them follow His way so as to avoid spreading evil...
