REFRAINING FROM SIN
Although the Shayateen may be chained up, the habits left with us from the previous 11 months of the year do not go away so easily! We need to exert much effort to refrain from such habitual sins in this month in order to benefit fully.
Imam Ghazaali (rahmatullah alaihi) mentions in Ihyaa Uloom-id-Deen that fasting is of three categories:
- The fasting of the layman – To abstain from eating, drinking and cohabitation.
- The fasting of those who desire to attain Allah’s closeness – In addition to abstaining from the above three acts, to control the organs and senses from forbidden lust and desire.
- The fasting of those who have achieved the highest degree of proximity to Allah – To abstain from everything besides Allah and devote ones attention towards Allah alone. To strengthen ones spiritual connection with Allah.
Let us strive to surpass the first category of people who only refrain from eating & drinking etc by making an intention to leave all sin and vice. Only then can we hope to become closer to Allah. For many a times during the blessed month, because our bodies are engaged in fasting and our mouths are full of thirst we feel as though we are doing great deeds. However, little do we realise that we are actually wasting away many of these good deeds due to the detrimental effects of our sins.
In fact, all this was actually prophesised hundreds of years ago as we were warned by Nabi (salallahu alaihi wasalam): “Many of those who fast, obtain nothing through such fasting except hunger and many of those who perform salaah during the night obtain nothing by it, except the discomfort of staying awake.” (Ibn Majah)
May Allah save us from being amongst such people. Ameen
It is a well known fact that while committing good deeds, if a person also commits sins, he/she washes away the effects of the good deeds. This is because the nur (light) of the good deeds are being polluted by the evil…this is exactly why although many of us engage ourselves in fasting and worship during the month, soon after Ramadhan we seem to return to our old ways. It is because the nur of our hearts was not allowed to prevail due to our persistent sinning.
