TweetLet us make this Ramadhaan a memorable one; one which becomes a turning point of our lives. Our target should be to become a complete Muttaqee (a God-fearing person) and there are two things which should be kept in mind for this achievement:
1. To save ones self from ALL disobedience of Allah subhaanahu wataala. Shaytaan, who has been in control has been chained up and now is the opportunity to build up forces to combat his attacks. Make dua to Allah subhaanahu wataala to safeguard every part of your body; the eyes from seeing that which is prohibited, the ears from listening to backbiting, music, the tongue from slandering, backbiting, lying, the feet from walking toward sin, etc.
2. To refrain from all Layaani (that which has no benefit in this world or in the Hereafter). For instance take the discussions which take place on certain issues or politics. Hours are spent in discussing these matters and they are of no benefit. We will say we have concern for the ummat however if we really had concern for the ummah we would wake up in the middle of the night and beseech Allah subhaanahu wataala on their behalf and we would spend whatever time and wealth we can on the uplifment of the ummah.
Spending hours listening to sports commentaries and then spending further time discussing them has no benefit whatsoever. These type of gatherings must be avoided as they have no benefit in this world or the Hereafter.
From the teachings of Shaykh Muhammad Saleem Dhorat (Hafizahullah)
