Absolute Obedience

We break the fast the moment we are instructed to eat and we start the fast each morning the moment we should stop eating! If we applied that to all the instructions of the Almighty we would achieve true piety. Whenever we want to do something He has prohibited, we stop immediately and whenever we find an instruction of His, we engage immediately.

Surprising how we can fast so well bearing every second in mind but we tend to ignore the same Creator when it comes to other matters!

(Mufti Ismail Menk)

 

Strong Faith

In Ramadan, at the end of a very hot and long summer’s day, a person is sitting with his food, close to the time of Iftaar, waiting patiently to open his fast. There’s just 3 minutes left for the setting of the sun when he is told: ‘Eat! What difference will it make if you break your fast now? What is another 2 or 3 minutes? You’ve already stayed away from food and drink for almost 15-16 hours.’

 

Even if this happens to be the weakest Muslim, he will respond: ‘It is the ruling of Islam that I break my fast after sunset and not before. It is the command of Allah and I cannot disobey Him.’ His Imaan (faith) becomes so strong that he will not break his fast. We should question ourselves: Is it not the command of that same Allah to perform Salaah five times a day? Is it not the command of that same Allah to correctly discharge our Zakaah, treat our parents with love, treat our wives with compassion, etc?

Reported by K`ab bin Malik (RA): Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, "Two hungry wolves sent in the midst of a flock of sheep are no more destructive to them than a man's greed for wealth and fame is to his Deen.'' [At-Tirmidhi]
