Lesson 30 – What Should you do after Ramadan?
   
 
 
In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, Most Merciful  
 
Pay attention to the following part of a long Hadith, please: 

(He is doomed who sees the month of Ramadan come and go, and he has not been forgiven.'' He said, "Say Ameen,'' so I said Ameen…)

If the Muslim is not forgiven in Ramadan, then when will he be forgiven?  It seems that Allah the Almighty means to make this blessed month (Ramadan) a good timing for man to get back to Him in repentance, to repair his connection with Him, and to approach Him. However, your success lies going on in getting back to Allah the Almighty with repentance and approaching Him after Ramadan. In other words, breaking your Siyaam should be by eating and drinking which are permissible in all months of the year but Ramadan, so I mean that your acquired good habits should be done continually after Ramadan is over. For instance, you are used to perform salat al-Fajr in congregation at the Masjid during these 30 days of Ramadan, so it should be performed like this after Ramadan as well. Listen to these Ahadeeth, please:      

(He, who performs salat al-fajr (the dawn prayer) in congregation is under Allah's Care (and Protection) till sunset, and he who performs salat al-isha' in congregation is under Allah's Care (and Protection) till dawn.)

[Ahmad]

(He who performs salat al-fajr (the dawn prayer) is under the Care (and Protection) of Allah the Almighty.)

[Ibn Majah, on the authority of Sumra Ibn Jundub]

(He who performs salat al-isha'a in congregation will be like he who has stayed half of the night performing night salat.)

[Muslim, on the authority of Uthman Ibn Affan]

Generally, most Muslims pray salat al-Fajr and salat al-Isha' in Ramadan in congregation at the Masjid, so it is recommended that you go on with at least performing salat at the Masjid, and this is how you keep doing your acquired good habitual activities after Ramadan is over.
