THANK ALLAH YOU AN FAST
When the SITUATION GRADUATES from WORSE TO WORST on the days of judgement, a team will be SHOWN a special GATE. No one ENTERS THROUGH it except the LESS FOODIOUS. The ones WHO SACRIFICED their own MORSELS and FED the others who COULDN’T AFFORD anything to BREAK THEIR FAST. People who gave up EATING and DRINKING and SMOUCHING and SEXUAL ACTIVITIES, let alone the TEMPTING CUTE look on her YELLOW FACE when the sun is up the head, when they had the CHANCE to PROCEED. The very ones who SUBMIT to their LORD because HE ADVISED THEM to observe fast because it’s GOOD for THEIR HEALTH. The ever SUBMISSIVE who FAST as PRESCRIBED by the SUBLIME. The MUSLIMS who RESPOND to Allah’s command that FASTING was also prescribed to the EARLIER GENERATIONS and therefore it’s something PRACTICAL. Especially now that it’s PROVING to be the HARDEST FASTING SEASON ever. Fasting WITHOUT TARAWEEH prayers and probably WITHOUT CELEBRATING the eidY the ORTHODOX WAY. Sient Iftaar, silent eid and silent RAMADHAN, but a SORRY ONE which almost SUCCUMBED to COVID-19. They will be REWARDED by being ADMITTED into an EXCLUSIVE PARADISE. An ELITE CLUB whose MEMBERS STRUGGLED to EARN IT. May I and you be AMONGST THEM, if we SURVIVE CORONA Pandemic as Ramadhan APPROACHES.
حَدَّثَنَا خَالِدُ بْنُ مَخْلَدٍ، حَدَّثَنَا سُلَيْمَانُ بْنُ بِلاَلٍ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي أَبُو حَازِمٍ، عَنْ سَهْلٍ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ
“ إِنَّ فِي الْجَنَّةِ بَابًا يُقَالُ لَهُ الرَّيَّانُ، يَدْخُلُ مِنْهُ الصَّائِمُونَ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ، لاَ يَدْخُلُ مِنْهُ أَحَدٌ غَيْرُهُمْ يُقَالُ أَيْنَ الصَّائِمُونَ فَيَقُومُونَ، لاَ يَدْخُلُ مِنْهُ أَحَدٌ غَيْرُهُمْ، فَإِذَا دَخَلُوا أُغْلِقَ، فَلَمْ يَدْخُلْ مِنْهُ أَحَدٌ ”
Narrated Sahl: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “There is a gate in Paradise called Ar-Raiyan, and those who observe fasts will enter through it on the Day of Resurrection and none except them will enter through it. It will be said, ‘Where are those who used to observe fasts?’ They will get up, and none except them will enter through it. After their entry the gate will be closed and nobody will enter through it.”
