The day after Ramadan is so … weird. It’s as if the entire world assumed its position back to where it first began. It’s as if everyone suddenly went back to who they were. The entire atmosphere is so off, everyone is so different. How fascinating that we go to bed and awaken back to the same people we regretted once before. How fascinating that we have so easily reverted back to our old behaviours, our bad character, our bad manners. & it’s not to say that everyone is so, but … is it that easy to just forget that we spent 30 full days of complete servitude and complete remembrance of Allaah in our every dealings? Is it that easy to forget the taraweeh, the tahhajud, the reading the Qur’aan, the restraining from getting angry, the holding back our tongue, the withholding from backbiting and gossiping? Is it that easy?
Have the Shayateen trained us that well that we can only revert back to our old selves and live off our mistakes ? Have we truly lost that connection with Allaah that we’ve substituted it with the dunya ?
Subhan’Allaah al atheem. I ask Allaah that we all maintain the firmness that we have acquired during Ramadan and to maintain our consistency of doing good and leaving off the evils. I seek refuge in Allaah from the Rejected Shaytaan and from his whispers and from my own nafs. I ask Allaah that we all improve and improve and improve and become the best of people; in the eyes of no one but Allaah.
