These Are The Signs To Know if Allah Accepted Your Ramadan.

As the month of Ramadan comes to an end, the most important question most of us are probably thinking right now is “How do I know if my Ramadan was accepted by Allah?”

Now there isn’t a 100% guaranteed way to tell exactly how much of our worship was accepted, but there is a pretty good indicator that can help you find out.

And that is steadfastness.

In other words, if we’re able to continue the good actions we picked up in Ramadan well after this month – that would be a major sign that our deeds were accepted.

For instance, the most obvious deed we performed this month was fasting. So a key indicator that our fasting was accepted will be to see how well we are able to continue our fasting throughout the year, even if it’s only a couple of days a month.

The Prophet Muhammad in fact encouraged us to fast 6 days in Shawal, the month directly after Ramadan, so that we will gain the reward of fasting an entire year.

Prayer is another example. If in the month of Ramadan, you were praying Taraweeh every night and visiting the mosque every day, a key indicator that your prayers were accepted would be to how much of these prayers would you continue after Ramadan, even it’s only two extra Rakaat a night.


And of course with Ramadan being the month of the Quran, a key indicator of your Quran being accepted, is found in your ability to maintain a close relationship with the Quran well after the month of Ramadan.

Ramadan is definitely not the finish line, and the Lord of the month of Ramadan, is the same Lord for the entirety of time. The deeds we picked up today should not end tomorrow.

In an amazing hadith, the Prophet Muhammad taught us that if the hour was to come, meaning the final day, and in our hands was a plant, and we had the ability to plant it, we should plant it. This Hadith is a clear sign that the work of a Muslim should never end until the very end of time.

Our deeds should not come to a close with the closing of Ramadan. We must continue and through this steadfastness is our true success.

As the Prophet Muhammad advised one of his companions with short but extremely powerful advice, “قل أمنت بالله ثم استقم”. “Say I believe in Allah and then remain steadfast”. Hold well onto your actions after this month and let not the end of Ramadan signal the end of your worship, but rather a new beginning.

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many.
