Life After Ramadan and Eid

Many of us may feel that since Ramadan and the two Eids are done, “now what”? What are we to do with our time as Muslims?

إِنَّ هٰذِهِ تَذكِرَةٌ ۖ فَمَن شاءَ اتَّخَذَ إِلىٰ رَبِّهِ سَبيلًا

“This (Qur’an) truly is a Reminder, so whoever wills should take the Way towards his Lord.”Qur’an 76: 29

السَّاعي على الأرملةِ والمسكينِ ، كالمُجاهدِ في سبيلِ اللَّهِ ، أو القائمِ الليلَ والصائمِ النهارِ

Abu Hurayrah reported that the Prophet ﷺ said, “One who strives to help the widows and the poor is like the one who fights in the way of Allah, stands all night in prayer, or fasts all day.”Sahih al-Bukhari, #5353

فَإِنَّ مَعَ العُسرِ يُسرًا

إِنَّ مَعَ العُسرِ يُسرًا

“With hardship there is ease.” Qur’an 94: 5-6

So keep it up, keep training in the “off season”. Help to culminate a relationship with Allah that is based on the Truth vs. simply running to him every time you’re in crisis.

إِنَّ هٰذا كانَ لَكُم جَزاءً وَكانَ سَعيُكُم مَشكورًا

إِنّا نَحنُ نَزَّلنا عَلَيكَ القُرآنَ تَنزيلًا

فَاصبِر لِحُكمِ رَبِّكَ وَلا تُطِع مِنهُم آثِمًا أَو كَفورًا

وَاذكُرِ اسمَ رَبِّكَ بُكرَةً وَأَصيلًا

وَمِنَ اللَّيلِ فَاسجُد لَهُ وَسَبِّحهُ لَيلًا طَويلًا

إِنَّ هٰؤُلاءِ يُحِبّونَ العاجِلَةَ وَيَذَرونَ وَراءَهُم يَومًا ثَقيلًا

“With hardship there is ease.” Qur’an 94: 5-6
